    Maybe. I'm still not happy with the way the movie industry treated James Brown with his biography. It came off looking like a comedy, and JB was the clown. No real character development, and no...

    This is why i've been against streaming. But, sympathetic feelings toward the artists can't compete with a cheap subscription of a few dollars a month. When people don't have money, and it's so...
