7 thoughts on “TBT: Get On Up/RIP Chadwick Boseman

  1. I was impressed by C.B.’s performance; he captured James Brown’s persona and charisma to some degree, something I don’t expect in most screen bios. If you get a chance to see “The T.A.M.I. Show” concert film–it exists in at least several versions–take it; James in his glory, along with a fantastic line-up of mid-’60s British and American stars, and good fashion: go-go boots, mini-skirts, Marvin Gaye’s gorgeous white tux.

  2. This is definitely my favorite Chadwick Boseman historical film. The movie is wild and crazy, just like the man himself. Even if someone didn’t like the movie, she’d still have to acknowledge that Chadwick Boseman did an AMAZING job! Definitely time to re-watch, though it will be with a heavy heart the second time around.

  3. giggle A day or two after I saw this, I told my sister a little about it and said that I’d liked it, but there were times I couldn’t understand a word Chadwick Boseman was saying. Her answer: “And this is different from the real James Brown HOW?” (She’d seen JB live in concert once.)
