I went to see this movie this weekend about Chess Records in Chicago in the Civil Rights Era. I must say that I didn't want my money back and remained focus through the whole movie.
It is about blues, soul, and the evolution/cross-over of Rock-N-Roll overall. But specifically, it is about the artists at this record label who made the music.
I must say that I am not a fan of Beyonce's music most of the time. I define a fan of an artist or music as someone who would purchase the music or in some way contribute to the artist/music. No, a free CD or download doesn't count, LOL. However, I enjoyed her portrayal of Etta James and can't imagine another known entertainer portraying her. I was a little disappointed that they didn't play/sing my favorite Etta James song.

So, I particularly thought Mos Def's portrayal of Chuck Berry was awesome. I also love the exploration of the characters Howlin' Wolf and Lil' Walter. In short, go see it!
