I watched Get On Up last night and Chadwick Boseman did a really good job playing James Brown. The movie overall? Ehh...
is the really real Chadwick Boseman? Because I don't trust eggs or unverified accounts 😒😕
At the Deauville American Film Festival for the French premiere of with Chadwick Boseman!
Get on Up (2014) - Ok, Chadwick Boseman should be among the nominees to the Oscar 2015.
Had 2 dig through several Clive Owens & Chadwick Boseman's 2 find the last 1 of w/ cover
Chadwick Boseman ain't the only *** in history to get paid to act like he don't know his history.
I wish I could be in a Chadwick Boseman and Frank Ocean sandwich.
Finally saw Get On Up. And it was really good. I wish I went to go see it sooner. Chadwick Boseman is a dope actor
Is Chadwick Boseman really 37? He seems way younger & looks it.I'm 38 so that's great.In my dreams him being 37 & me 38 means something.LOL
OK, 3000, let's see if you can do for Jimi what Chadwick Boseman did for the Godfather of Soul.
Just when I thought Chadwick Boseman was lock for an Oscar, they gotta go and release
The movie is EXCELLENT! Kevin Coster, Jennifer Garner, Chadwick Boseman & William Dafoe were GREAT! did good, too.
Lamman Rucker, Ty Lepley, Lee Thompson Young (R.I.P.), and Chadwick Boseman (faints) are all just beautiful to me. Phew!

Wow. Chadwick Boseman gives an electrifying, Oscar worthy performance as James Brown in
Chadwick Boseman did an AMAZING job embodying James Brown's soul 🙌
Chadwick Boseman shld win Oscar for James Brown! Who's with me?
I have never been a James Brown fan, although I love soul music of his era and appreciate his contribution and innovation to that genre. I also love the music history of that period. So, I knew Get on Up would be a film I would enjoy. However, I wasn’t expecting it to be worthy of a 9 out of 10 rating. This was the best film I have seen this year so far. Already showing star quality as another African American icon, baseball legend Jackie Robinson in 42, Chadwick Boseman proves himself even further as the Godfather of Soul in everything from the voice to the moves and look of James Brown. He was certainly more polished than his real-life alter ego, who passed away on Christmas Day in 2006. Boseman is certainly worthy of an Oscar nomination in my opinion. Directed by Tate Taylor, whose Oscar-nominated work includes The Help, the film jumps around in time rather frequently in ranges from his abusive childhood in Augusta, Georgia in the late thirties to still playing full houses as a senior citizen s ...

Chadwick Boseman and Nelsan Ellis did a phenomenal job playing James Brown and Bobby Byrd
Tonight I saw a film that hit me hard. My friends, especially my fellow musicians, dancers, performers, you need.NEED to see Get On Up. It not only does justice to James Brown, not only does justice to his music, his life, his influence.this movie will hit you home. My heart is still beating like thunder. Chadwick Boseman did a PHENOMENAL job being the godfather of soul. His mannerisms, his voice, everything was just right on point. This will definitely not be the last time I watch this film in the theater. This film reminds me why I dedicate my life to perform. Seriously guys.see this film.

"Get On Up," the biographical film on the life of James Brown (and produced by *** Jagger), opened Friday to generally good reviews, especially for it's lead. Richard Roeper in the Chicago Sun-Times said it's, "the powerful, raw, energized performance by Chadwick Boseman that makes this film worth seeing... Boseman is astonishingly good, inhabiting the persona of a larger-than-life icon without ever delving into caricature or mere impersonation.

Oh yeah I went to see "Get On Up" last night. While I thought the musical pieces were GREAT (Chadwick Boseman really did those moves) I thought the overall movie was just OK. You don't have to like a movie just because it's a black movie (example:"Red Tails" " Miracle at St. Anna" and most of the recent Tyler Perry films"). Lol
Remember how good Jaime Foxx was in "Ray?" Check out Chadwick Boseman in "Get On Up." Yes he was that good as James Brown. So was Ackroyd, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Jill Scott. Yes they did that!

Make sure to see "Get On Up" - Chadwick Boseman is electric as the legendary Godfather of Soul, James Brown!
Chadwick Boseman was a very good Jackie Robinson .. but idk about this James Brown role
Chadwick Boseman is killin it. 1st he's Jackie Robinson, now James Brown; is there not another black guy in Hollywood?
So, Chadwick Boseman has played both Jackie Robinson and James Brown *drops mic and walks off stage* Beat that...anyone?
Just saw Get On Up. Loved it. Chadwick Boseman was a revelation. Viola Davis, and Nelsan Ellis were awesome
The newly released James Brown film GET ON UP was really good. I rushed to see it as early as possible -matinee. While I was eager to see a film done on MR BROWN'S life as well as see this film, I had some serious concerns and doubts about Chadwick Boseman playing the lead. Well this brother DELIVERED and was FANTASTIC in this role as JB-- sometimes I dropped my jaw in the theater. The casting choices were great, as well as the acting. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the music and watching the musical performances via Chadwick. The way his latter years of his life were juxtaposed with his early childhood experiences and images served its cathartic purpose well in telling his story. The most memorable scene for me was that between James Brown and his mother (Viola Davis) in his dressing room at the Apollo in later years, as well as when he was a little boy when he called out for his mother as she stood next to the camp fire late at night next to the Military man. DEEP!! IT ALMOST BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYE ...
last. Comment then I’m done: Chadwick Boseman “Lafayette” from true Blood, Dan Ankroyd and Viola Davis were GR8
Just saw Pretty good! Unsure abt Chadwick Boseman; he just was Jackie Robinson last yr. But he was excellent as James Brown!
Chadwick Boseman is turning into a beast of an actor. First Jackie Robinson, now James Brown.
Chadwick Boseman's career-defining role for sure. He did WAY better then he did as Jackie Robinson in 42.
like, can we talk about how talented Chadwick Boseman is?! first Jackie Robinson, & now James Brown?. he SLAYS.
Rev. Al Sharpton says he had some apprehension about James Brown's upcoming biopic starring Chadwick Boseman, but the pains the 'Godfather of Soul' dealt with are not overplayed.
I bet if Chadwick Boseman had to play a famous *white* guy, he wouldn't know *** to do!
great news: 'Guardians of The Galaxy' scored 90% on Rotten Tomatoes 'Guardians of the Galaxy is just as irreverent as fans of the frequently zany Marvel comic would expect -- as well as funny, thrilling, full of heart, and packed with visual splendor.'

So this week I caught up on a few. Here's my review. Lucy - Weak. Get the bootleg Hercules - Very entertaining. The Rock was pretty good and the story was well told Apes - Very good.

Let me know what you think!
This dude Chadwick Boseman played Jackie Robinson in 42, and now he's playing James Brown. That's awesome.
Get On Up was AMAZING! James Brown live a colorful and sometimes troubled life. Chadwick Boseman, I love you.

Throwback Thursday Review: Along with 'Guardians of the Galaxy' coming out this weekend, 'Get On Up', the biopic about the Godfather of Soul James Brown, also comes out. I am excited to see this movie, especially for Chadwick Boseman. So, let's take a look back at Boseman's breakthrough performance. '42' (2013) - The historic story of Jackie Robinson is brought to life in an inspiring, fascinating baseball biography with a great breakthrough performance by Chadwick Boseman and the scene chewing Harrison Ford. ***/*
Is Chadwick Boseman married. V important need to know
Just saw the James Brown biopic Amazing performance by Chadwick Boseman! Legendary
Just finished the pre-screen of "Get on up" and I will say that Chadwick Boseman shonuff showed owt..lol. Might have to see that again before it leaves theaters. Great movie. (Hope he get an Oscar for this one)
Just finished watching the James Brown biopic "Get On Up." Very entertaining film. Chadwick Boseman does an absolutely incredible job depicting The Godfather Of Soul in the various stages of adult life. From the credits, I gathered that he was lip syncing to Brown's recordings, but no big deal. It least he did al his own dance moves without the help of CGI. Well worth seeing.
Get On Up is the most inspirational movie I seen all year. Chadwick Boseman is inceptional in this movie. Rest In...
Let's come together as a nation and agree that if Chadwick Boseman doesn't get an Oscar nomination for GET ON UP we burn the Academy down.

The new bio-pic "Get On Up - The James Brown Story" opens at a theater near you this Friday. Last week I arranged a screening at the Easton AMC for a select few friends and the King Arts Complex. You got to see this film. It's directed by Tate Taylor the guy who brought you "The Help." Chadwick Boseman stars and channels the hardest working entertainer ever to perfection. The film also features Nelsan Ellis, Dan Aykroyd,Viola Davis, Jill Scott and many more. Take your friends, family and/or significant other(s) and support this film ... one of the best "all time." Here's a shot with me and the "God Father of Soul" during his final visit to Columbus. Check out a couple clips from my conversation with Chadwick recently. We talked about the roots of the God Father and about producers Brian Grazer and *** Jagger. Tell me what you think!
Finally, a movie I want to see in the theatre. Been a long time. "Get on Up," the James Brown story.
I caught the early screening of Get On Up. I was mostly knocked out! Chadwick Boseman and Nelsan Ellis really carry the film. Music production is dead on. Exciting and moving film. Worthy tribute to The Godfather of Soul.
Chadwick Boseman is that dude... He did a great job playing Jackie Robinson in 42. Then gets to play another icon in James Brown...

Chadwick boseman loves playing black legends on movies
The Godfather of Soul, Mr Dynamite, James Brown's movie, 'Get on Up', opens tomorrow (Friday, August 1). I have seen the trailer and after knowing the hardest working man in showbusiness, for all of the years that i have, I am very excited about seeing this movie. 'Get On Up' chronicles the life of James Brown, the good and the bad. I am sure everyone is going to enjoy the music, the funky music that Brown laid down for all the ages to groove to. I was most impressed with new actor Chadwick Boseman role as James Brown. He has imitated not only the moves but his voice. As a matter of fact, if the movie producers and directors didn'y dub in Brown's voice, Chadwick does a haunting likeness to the man. Like I said, I have known James Brown for over twenty years and i certainly remember his husky scratchy voice. There are scenes in the movie that depict Mr. Brown as being dogged towards his band. I don't agree with that. He ran a very tight and respectful ship. Everyone addressed each other as yes sir and yes ...
Chadwick Boseman. If you don't remember him from 42, you WILL remember him from GET ON UP, the story of James Brown. Boseman is lost early on and from that point forward, you are watching and hearing the Master of Deep Funk tell his story! This biography of The Godfather of Soul takes you from the extreme poverty in his youth complete with family strife to his rise as one of the most copied/sampled R&B artists of all time. The movie has a great rhythm in the pacing, engaging characters, and soundtrack that will have you dancing in the aisles! Easily one of the best films about music to come along in years. GET ON UP to your local Cineplex for just over two hours of, laughing, crying, and some of the best music ever written!

Chadwick Boseman on BET Awards last night was a highlight for me
Here it is-Chadwick Boseman will portray James Brown. Jamie Foxx made you feel like you saw Ray Charles. And Jamie Foxx would have been a better choice to play James Brown.

Chadwick Boseman representin' Anderson SC. (Upstate!) Can't wait to see his new movie - Get On Up - as he plays James Brown.
Chadwick Boseman would be a great choice for John Stewart aswell...The Rock would play the perfect Shazam in my opinion
Watching "42", and marvelling at some of the performances. Chadwick Boseman is brilliant as Jackie Robinson, but it's fairly straightforward and not a great stretch. Harrison Ford is great as Branch Rickey, but again, not a stretch. Brett Cullen, Alan Tudyk and the other actors who had to play Southern, racist baseballers, now that's acting. Alan and Brett are two of the nicest guys in the world, and to play someone that full of hate was a major effort. Alan, in particular, as Ben Chapman, the evil manager of the Phillies... if you didn't know him, you'd swear he meant all that. Amazing. It's not the greatest sports movie ever, but it's on up there.
More light needs to be shed on Chadwick Boseman's cultural intelligence and consciousness.
I'll start the campaign now: CHADWICK BOSEMAN should be the 2014 Howard University Homecoming Grand Marshal (as he should've been last yr.)

April 23 J Review says, "Draft Day" gets ** (2 out of 5 stars) The trailer led me to believe that this would be an exciting inside look at the frenetic NFL Draft Day process. Well, inside look it gives; however, exciting it is not. The movie moves ever so slowly and becomes quite boring for subject matter that would be expected to be anything but boring. Kevin Costner is an actor who I have come to enjoy, but he could not save this film.

The Butler: The true story of Eugene Allen's journey from child of sharecroppers to a 34 year tenure as a White House Butler, where he witnesses, first hand, the evolution of Civil Rights in the U.S. Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom is based on Nelson Mandela's autobiography about his early life, education and 27 years as prisoner on Robben Island for traveling without a passport and sabotage.

Chadwick Boseman, Terry Crews, Arian Foster, Josh Pence, and Tom Welling are key players in the riveting, feel good film “Draft Day.” They all came to the table equipped and ready to play. Boseman scored with the successful “42” and will soon be seen in… [ 823 more words. ]
Go see Draft Day with Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner and Chadwick Boseman. Best movie I've seen in a long time. It's not a guys movie by any means.
My paintings are "Drafted" to Hollywood. Instead of flying to California this month to see my exhibition at the Wildling Art Museum, you can now go to a movie theater and see a few of them in the big new film opening next week, Draft Day, directed by Ivan Reitman. Starring Jennifer Garner, Kevin Costner, Denis Leary, Ellen Burstyn, Frank Langella, and Sam Elliott, the movie features my paintings in the home of the number one draft pick (played by Chadwick Boseman, "Jackie Robinson" in 42). The art directors selected my Highland Summer (aka, Missouri Heights, below) to be what they called the "hero piece" for Boseman's living room, along with two others that were granted reproduction rights: Sky Ascending (at the embassy in Guyana currently) and Lingering Light (in a private collection).
Viola Davis. Octavia Spencer. Chadwick Boseman. The trailer for the James Brown biopic looks like a whole lotta funk.
Green Lantern seems to be on the tip of a lot of people's tongues. Dwayne Johnson may or may not have hinted at the role, Chadwick Boseman is offhandedly bringing up the character in interviews and now, so is DC Cinematic Universe godfather David S. Goyer.
Last May, Latino Review's El Mayimbe reported actor Chadwick Boseman ("42") was at the top of Marvel's shortlist of actors they are looking at to play Black Panther. In a recent interview Chadwick expressed interest in the potential role and...Green Lantern!
So the Warner Bros presentation was pretty exciting. They showed new footage for Godzilla, Transcendence, Blended, Edge of Tomorrow, Jersey Boys, Tammy, Jupiter Ascending, Into The Storm, If I Stay, The Good Lie, This Is Where I Leave You, The Judge, Horrible Bosses 2, and The Hobbit. The most previews of any studio. And they brought out their stars to promote them. The director of Godzilla Gareth Edwards, Johnny Depp/Morgan Freeman/Wally Pfister for Transcendence, Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone for Tammy, Clint Eastwood for Jersey Boys, Sarah Wayne Callies and Richard Armitage for Into The Storm, Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum for Jupiter Ascending, and Peter Jackson sent in a video retrospective of the last 16 years of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and a few snippets of the last movie. To end the week at CinemaCon we got to sit in on a press junket for all the stars that were receiving awards at the event. Ivan Reitman, Kevin Costner, Andy Serkis, Chadwick Boseman, Shailene Woodley, Chris Pratt, ...
Time for the final night award ceremony. Drew Barrymore, Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Chadwick Boseman, Shailene Woodley, Melissa McCarthy are a few of the award winners tonight.
This is one of my Birthday presents! I received the movie poster framed for my office! Loved the movie 42 with Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford.
Chadwick Boseman played Jackie Robinson in 42. Now he's playing James Brown. If he plays MLK, he will be the face Blk struggle.

“42″ Star Chadwick Boseman “Mesmerizes” As James Brown In New Flick “Get On Up” [Video] Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy For a guy with no singing or dancing training he’s really killing it. The film hasn’t even hit screens yet and “42″ actor Chadwick Boseman is already being praised for his portrayal of James Brown in an upcoming biopic. Via Shadow and Act reports: Chadwick Boseman stars as James Brown in the upcoming Universal Pictures’ biopic titled Get on Up, directed by The Help’s Tate Taylor, and produced by Brian Grazer and *** Jagger.

Chadwick Boseman and *** Jagger on making the James Brown biopic Get On Up
42: Written and directed by Brian Helgeland; starring Chadwick Boseman (Jackie Robinson), Harrison Ford (Branch Rickey), Nicole Beharie (Rachel Robinson), Lucas Black (Pee Wee Reese), Alan Tudyk (Ben Chapman) and Hamish Linklater (Ralph Branca) (2013): Enjoyable biopic of Jackie Robinson -- the player who broke major league baseball's colour barrier in 1947 -- stays mostly faithful to the facts. Other than a bit of swearing, 42 could have been made in the early 1960's by Stanley Kramer.   Chadwick Boseman is fine as Robinson, selected by Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey to become the first African-American major leaguer of the modern era in part because his character suggested that he could take the stress that would result without beating the crap out of somebody or breaking down himself. And Harrison Ford probably deserved an Oscar Best Supporting Actor nomination for his work as Rickey -- he's very good in a movie for the first time in a long time. Alan Tudyk also shines as the virulentl ...

truu, but i don't think he was meant to be GL tho. Yes, the script sucked but Chadwick Boseman or Derek Luke would be better
I love Michael B. Jordan but he is over saturated. If these JL rumors are true (UGH) couldn't Chadwick Boseman play Cyborg?
Yes to these cuties! Nicole Beharie and Chadwick Boseman
Nicole Beharie and Chadwick Boseman present Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture
Chadwick Boseman is such a super cutie.
Just saw "42" FREE at our county library! OUTSTANDING Cast Including: Harrison Ford/Chadwick Boseman/Nicole Beharie--Can't believe this movie was "passed over" for the Academy Awards!!! Not-right, Academy! Larry & I saw it previously-SO GOOD had to see it-Again, Today!
If they use John Stewart or Cyborg, they should cast Chadwick Boseman from "42" for either role. He's a good actor.
And to boot, the kid who plays Floyd Little is Chadwick Boseman who of course plays Jackie Robinson in 42. Small world lol
say it was Cyborg, who could you see in the part? Chadwick Boseman?
Imma spend the next couple of days trying to find Chadwick Boseman. He needs to be mine. Yup
The scenes with Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Henderson are pretty great. The scenes where anyone else shows up are real hard to watch
“Identity thief” – A moderately funny film about a guy that tracks down the woman who stole his identity. The film follows the man and the woman as they go through a series of unfortunate for the characters, convenient for the plot mishaps and problems as they make their way across the country. Of course they eventually form a bond and of course she supposedly redeems herself eventually, but for me she was so annoying and selfish for most of it that I couldn’t ever like her or forgive her if I was the guy. – 5.5 out of 10   “Flowers in the attic” – I definitely spoke to soon on the Lifetime movies, While “Bonnie and Clyde” and “Blindsided” were really good “Lizzie Borden took an axe” and this were not. I think this is the worst; it totally went back to what you would expect from a Lifetime movie; stilted acting, bad dialogue, endless amounts of melodrama. I was intrigued by the story for sure but the execution was poor for the most part. – 5 out of 10   “42” – when yo ...
Chadwick Boseman is my choice for that role. Dude would crush it.
Chadwick Boseman played a steller Jackie Robinson. I bet it was difficult to hear the n* chants during production, but 42 >>>>
Ideas myself and have come up with for BP:. Remy (House of Cards). Chadwick Boseman (42). Freddie's son (House of Cards)

Watching the movie, '42' the story about Jackie Robinson on HBO with Harrison Ford and Chadwick Boseman...
Yeah. Isn't Marvel eyeing Chadwick Boseman? I agree. I think he'll be good.
imma just watch 42 😍 Chadwick Boseman always makes me feel good
Major league will always be my favorite baseball movie but was incredible. Chadwick Boseman was great but Harrison Ford stole the light playing Branch Ricky. Instant classic for any baseball lover.
why am I just realizing how fine Chadwick Boseman is?
What a day, saw two films at the Pan AFrican film festival that I liked very much. Both happened to be by friends of mine and included artist I respect very much. Javon Johnson wrote the script to HEAVEN. If you know Javon, you know he's going to bring it and he did. I want to say it was a beautiful piece of writing but that would not express it correctly. I was deep though and raw. Well directed by Chadwick Boseman. (aka Jackie Robinson) April Parker Jones and Walter Faunteroy put in work. Both did quite amzing work. .. The second film AND THEN... was so *** sexy it made me uncomfortable because it was so familiar, if that makes sense. Ka'ramuu Kush, Diandra Lyle, and Vanessa Williams were off the charts sexy and so good in this enticing lovely work. The opening scene sets it off and it doesn't stop. Would love to see this as a feature. LL Also saw the video premiere of JJ's aka John Marshall Jones, funny hip hop piece "Sweaty Booty Cheeks,' As usual JJ pulled all the stops, red carpet, paparazzi, beaut ...
Chadwick Boseman is just super adorable omf 😍❤️❤️

Harrison Ford and Chadwick Boseman star in 42, the life story of Jackie Robinson. Watch it now on
42. What a picture. Chadwick Boseman was stellar. One of my favourite roles for Ford and was stunning as usual.
Last Thought: Chadwick Boseman...you acted your *** off. That break down before the incredible scene with Harrison? You had me tearing...
A Tupac biopic is in development.but they are missing Tupac. Who could play him? I offer 3 suggestions: Michael B Jordan (Fruitvale Station) Chadwick Boseman (42) Columbus Short (Scandal) Honorable Mention: Tyrese Gibson
Who should play Tupac in his new movie coming out (Brandon T. Jackson, Michael B. Jordan, Chadwick Boseman, Columbus Short, Anthony MacKie) those are the picks folks lol.
Sad but true - bet someone like Michael B Jordan, Denzel Whitaker, Chadwick Boseman or some none acting rapper plays Tupac in the movie. No hate at all. I love Michael B, Chadwick & Denzel. I just think whoever really thinks they are looking for unknown talent is askew. I could be wrong though
I'm watching 42 and I love it! Its a *** shame how people acted back then and now! If I were there I'd be in jail for busting heads! I love Chadwick Boseman for playing Jackie. He is HOT! Check out Jackie Robinson's the mlb players of the dodges wear his number once a yr to remember his achievement
Branch Rickey was a genius, as well as and Chadwick Boseman is a force to be reckoned with.

Watching "42" from beginning this time. What a job Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford did in this true story of Jackie Robinson. Still powerful...
I just got done watching "42", not to bad of a movie. But once something I notice bothers me just I can't get over it. Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey, his raspy voice was quite annoying after awhile.. and all you baseball fans didn't Chadwick Boseman, when batting reminded me of a young Hank Aaron batting.
Just finished watching "42" starring Chadwick Boseman, Nicole Beharie Brown and Harrison Ford.
just watched the movie '42' ..the story of Jackie Robinson ..this was ok ..didnt really capture the plight of robinson that well ...Harrison Ford ..who i dont like was good as Branch Rickey ..chadwick boseman does well as jackie ..7 MOOSE ANTLERS !
