    Speaking of Ettas, y'all ever see Cadillac Records? Awesome fucking movie. Beyonce Knowles' character and rendition, though probably far from accurate, really hits you in the heart. The scene where they were recording of 'All I could do was cry' ? Damn.

    I've seen it, and just couldn't get through the historical inaccuracy of the movie, just for the sake of making it more interesting. If you're historical movie, make it right or don't make it at all. I hated I Walk The Line though, even if it was kinda accurate, because it portrayted Johnny Cash only as drug and booze addicted asshole, worst person on earth basically.

    Between the grocery store to pick up stuff for dinner tomorrow and the liquor store (most grocery stores in MD can't sell beer), it took me an extra 2.5 hours to get home after work.

    Did they really do that though? Sounds like you're remembering it without any context whatsoever. They more painted him as someone with many demons and a lot of guilt.

    Not really. I don't watch the cricket and I hardly watch any footy. I've always enjoyed watching a good tennis match though.

    Oh okay. Well, Australian sports would interest me if the NBL wasn't complete trash.

    At the risk of sounding like a douche monger, I've always thought disliking movies based purely on the lack of accuracy was kinda fuckin stupid. Whether its historical accuracy, canon accuracy, etc. Cinema as an art medium should be seen exactly as that - art. It's not like they label this shit specifically as a documentary, or you saw it on the history channel. Its entertainment with loose basis in fact.

    You're really missing out on some great films if you won't let the directors take their creative liberties, being the artists they are.

    Walk the Line totally sucked as a piece of cinematic art though, IMO. Not worth a second watch regardless of accuracy.

    Well, yes, I think that's what they were trying to do, and in my eyes, blatantly failed.

    The problem is, I like when things are kind of all in or nothin. This applies not only to movies, but also to games, hell, even to my life, I either 100% concentrate on something or don't do it at all. So when movie is historical, they want to recreate something, I want it to be accurate. If it's completely made up, I'm fine with it. Same thing applies to games. When you are doing realistic shooter, like ARMA, I like it, if you do crazy stuff like Unreal, I like it too. But half realistic/half arcade-y games like CoD/BF I hate with passion. So it is my personal issue.
