Brody's Cadillac

01.22.2008
Adrien Brody and Jeffrey Wright are set to star in Sony BMG's CADILLAC RECORDS. Quite frankly, this thing must have a script that is absolutely bananas, since the story sounds boring as hell. I'm talking your girlfriend dragging you over to a Maybelline counter boring. Here's the skinny: Brody will play famed blues/R&B record exec Leonard Chess, and Wright will be Muddy Waters. Joining them in the cast are Columbus Short, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Cedric the Entertainer and Tammy Blanchard. Writer-director Darnell Martin's film explores Chicago in the 1950s, charting the colorful lives of American musical legends like Waters, Chess, Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf and Elvis Presley. It will lense in New Jersey and Mississippi. Maybe this is just boring to me since Elvis is the only one of those dudes (or chicks?) that I've ever even heard of. Still, I'm torn - on the one hand, I like Wright (THE INVASION - better than the numbers would imply), and I think Brody's work in THE THIN RED LINE (what little of it we actually saw) is some of the greatest acting I've ever seen. But on the other, Cedric the Entertainer and a movie about a bunch of guys I don't know.
Extra Tidbit: Brody was actually tight with Tupac Shakur before he passed away/faked his death and went into hiding.

I know who all of those people are and I'm still not sure this will be entertaining. However, it is possible they have a lot up their sleeve.

Neat

Dear James Thoo,
There's an old saying that basically means, if you don't know much about a subject, you'd be wise to not comment on it. Maybe in the future you'll be wiser to not point out your own lack of knowledge on a subject. Between declaration of limited knowledge, insight and interest in an exciting time for American Music and your pro-Invasion stance, perhaps it'd be better if you kept more things to yourself. There could some great music and some cool insight into legendary
Dear James Thoo,
There's an old saying that basically means, if you don't know much about a subject, you'd be wise to not comment on it. Maybe in the future you'll be wiser to not point out your own lack of knowledge on a subject. Between declaration of limited knowledge, insight and interest in an exciting time for American Music and your pro-Invasion stance, perhaps it'd be better if you kept more things to yourself. There could some great music and some cool insight into legendary performers who shaped our music popular culture in this flick, and with any luck a few people without a remarkbly unfunny yet snarky sense of humor might find something enteraining in it all. Maybe even you if you can pull yourself away from completely uncalled for remakes.

How does this movie sound boring? Some people really need to branch out with their musical tastes.

Sounds great! Always thought the Chess Records story would be a good flick.

Being a Chicago blues fan, I'm on this like a fat man on a sandwich. However, I hope it's more doc than drama.

James Thoo, xxxoverrideXXX: go check out Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Little Walter, and Howlin' Wolf on Allmusic and iTunes. You'll thank me later.

Man does this sound boring. I was even bored reading that 3 sentence synopsis

Maybe King Kong will show up wanting some vengeance on Brody.
