Re: James Brown biopic

The adaptation of Malcolm X was kinda a snooze. I do hope Spike does justice to James Brown (and not merely depict him in a-by-the-numbers arc).

Brown was a man of immense contradictions. While Brown was a life-long staunch supporter of civil rights and the poor, he was also a wife beater and alcoholic.

I also (greatly) prefer Sedaris. Maybe not all his stories are fall on the floor funny - but many of them are.

And c'mon, for this time of year Holidays on Ice is a classic.
