Product Description

Amazon.ca

Jamie Foxx's uncannily accurate performance isn't the only good thing about Ray. Riding high on a wave of Oscar® buzz, Foxx proved himself worthy of all the hype by portraying blind R&B legend Ray Charles in a warts-and-all performance that Charles approved shortly before his death in June 2004. Despite a few dramatic embellishments of actual incidents (such as the suggestion that the accidental drowning of Charles's younger brother caused all the inner demons that Charles would battle into adulthood), the film does a remarkable job of summarizing Charles's strengths as a musical innovator and his weaknesses as a philandering heroin addict who recorded some of his best songs while flying high as a kite. Foxx seems to be channeling Charles himself, and as he did with the life of Ritchie Valens in La Bamba, director Taylor Hackford gets most of the period details absolutely right as he chronicles Ray's rise from "chitlin circuit" performer in the early '50s to his much-deserved elevation to legendary status as one of the all-time great musicians. Foxx expertly lip-syncs to Ray Charles's classic recordings, but you could swear he's the real deal in a film that honors Ray Charles without sanitizing his once-messy life. --Jeff Shannon

3.0 out of 5 stars Great movie - mediocre DVD Feb. 7 2005
By hfettig
Format:DVD
Ray is a great movie and Jamie Foxx's performance is spectacular.
The DVD, however, lures you with the promise of an extended edition including 25min of additional footage. Well, that is true, but they way it is presented is very annoying. When you choose to play the extended edition, the movie skips back and forth to the deleted scenes at the appropriate points during the movie. Granted, maybe my DVD player is not the fastest one out there, which makes the skips very obvious, but the way the extended scenes are cut you end up seeing bits and pieces of the scenes twice, like Oberon's introduction of Ray in the club. This is extremely annoying and caused me to switch back to the original version after the third "extended scene".
The sad part is, that, since this is a 2 DVD edition, there would have been enough room for putting both editions separately on the DVDs with room to spare for the special features.

i can't say Ray is a bad movie,because it certainly isn't.however, i
just think it could have been better.Jamie Foxx is very good in the
title role.the problem however lies with the film itself.I give Ray
high marks for style,but not so much for substance.i felt it was
missing the depth,the heart and soul it should have had.i also found
this movie to be depressing at times and it seems to drag to drag.Ray
Charles was a genius and that is shown very person,to be polite.the
filmmakers were striving for accuracy and i get that.but sometimes the
film focuses too much on this aspect of Charles and this is where it
languishes.Ray could have been a great film.instead it sits somewhere
between good and very good.A disappointment considering the subject
matter.of course this is just one person's opinion.for me,Ray is a 3/5.
