Not a deal for everyone out there, but for those who have HD-DVD, well worth a punt.

Jamie Foxx stars in this biopic of legendary soul and R&B singer Ray Charles. Skilfully edited and with a keen eye for period detail the narrative weaves in and out of the past in an interlocking tapestry of the mans rise to fame in the 1950s and 60s. Growing up poor black and blind in the rural south Charles learns under the tutelage of his tough-love mother (Sharon Warren) to turn these handicaps into assets. With this training Ray eventually plays his way into a major deal with Atlantic records and earns icon status as an American legend. Along the way the high cost of fame leads him to engage in abusive relationships manipulative behaviour and struggles with drug and alcohol problems. This is a dynamite film for the music alone (Charless actual recordings are used in the film) but Foxxs career-benchmark performance transcends RAYs biopic roots turning this into a piercing full-on character study unflinching sometimes harrowing and ultimately deeply moving. The sheer joy of Charless music comes alive in Foxxs movements and his character matures convincingly and powerfully. A stellar supporting cast is on hand to back him up every step of the way including Larenz Tate as producer Quincy Jones and Kerry Washington as Rays long-suffering wife Regina.

At least those poor people that went with HD get some cheap DVDs

It's funny because I own both HD & BD and if i was to be honest, I find HD is slightly better, esp. at upscaling standard DVDs.

Same here the Toshiba EP10 is better than the Panasonic BD30 for upscaling,
not compared my BD60 or EP30 though:D

Agreed, the wrong format won IMO. I gave my EP30 away to my mam to use for an upscaler, and I'm amazed everytime I see it spinning a disk.

i purchased this in gamestation whilst they were having a clear out, managed to get an xbox hd dvd player with 5 hd dvd's for £30 i still find it that HD DVD is superior to Blu Ray

thanks for the post
