Get On Up: You'll Feel Good

Question 1: How much do you like James Brown's music?
Question 2: Enough to watch a 2-hour and 18-minute bio-pic about the Godfather of soul?

The Movie Slut does and did and,  yeah, she feels real good.

That's not to say this is an upbeat flick. The "hardest working man in show business" had a dismal childhood and because of his lifespan (1933-2006), moviegoers go through some horrible times in U.S. history.

But the music! That hard-driving, frenetic, hectic, heart-thrashing sound!!!

There are those who fault this flick for being a white-guy's project. So, MS will end with one of JB's greatest hits.
