Movie: Talk To Me
Released: 2007
Stars: Don Cheadle,  Chiwetel Ejifor, Martin Sheen, Cedric the Entertainer
Reason for Watching: Early Oscar Buzz

I Can Name This Movie In One Note: A telling of Petey Greene’s story, he was a DC radio host.

You Should See This Movie Because: DC rocks.  Plus, there’s totally a shot of Ben’s Chili Bowl.  All of the actors are pretty cool, and you’ll love Cedric the Entertainer’s role.  The MLK sequence is pretty riveting.  And the end of the credits say any similarity to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.  Which made Brian and I laugh.

You Shouldn’t See This Movie Because: It starts to drag a bit.  It kinda has the same feel of lots of other biopics.  Also, they filmed in Toronto, and I think the lack of DC scenery hurts the movie.  But I may be a bit biased.

Bottom Line: A decent enough movie for Cheadle fans and those who want to complete their collection of 2007 movies.
