When i did my trailer review for “Get On Up” i said that my lack of interest in James Brown’s music made it hard for me to care about anything else the movie had to offer. Well, it seems lie some benevolent cinema god was listening and has given us this: A movie about Jimi Hendrix, the worlds greatest rock guitar player.
How could this get any better? Having John Ridley behind the camera. While his directing credits may not be all that great, this is the man who wrote last years “12 Years a Slave”, and movie that for sure had some issues, but was still pretty amazing. I really don’t have much more to say about this one other than “hell yeah, give it too me”.
