That thought Walk the Line was ok, saw most of it (meaning to see the rest). Havn't had the desire to see ray though

While I think Ray Charles' life was a bit more interesting than Johnny Cash's I thought Walk the Line was definitely the better film.

I haven't seen Ray in its entirety. From what I saw of it, it looked like it'd be pretty interesting.

I'm not a Johnny Cash or country music fan so I don't see myself ever going to see Walk the Line, but I'm sure it was a good movie in its own right.

Walk the Line was so awesome. I cried, I laughed, I cheered; cheesy, yes, yet true, nevertheless... I loved it.. Ray was okay, just not as good

Ray was really good, I have no desire to see Walk the Line.

Even though I didn't see Walk The Line, I would really have to say Ray. To me his life was amazing. From the struggles of his childhood, his brother's death, and overcoming addiction to heroin.

I'm not a fan of his music, but just seeing how much energy and style he put into his music, it just makes me feel like you can do anything you put your mind to.

I have yet to see Ray, but I thought Walk The Line was very good.

Ray, by a million. walk the line was the biggest piece of crap I've ever seen in my entire life. I f'n hate that movie sooooooooooooooo much. Fu*ck that dude for thinking he could sing or act like he could sing. They actually let that guy sing, instead of Johnny's songs! He's one of the worst actors on the face of the earth, and I hope he gets into a life-ending accident very soon. He should never be allowed to disgrace the screen with his shotty skills. That guy is a loser.

I'm wrong that I think Walk the Line was better? Uh, okay.

I agree, though I though both were entertaining.

Ray.

I have not seen either. However, I have heard a vote of "amazing" for both.

One factor would be to weigh out the skill needed from the Leads. Walk really had two actors forced to "perform", not to take away from the skill needed for Ray of course. I just wonder by "better" if people think of what was required from 1 man, or 2 other actors.

I havent seen Ray...but Walk The Line was great

Walk the line, definitely. Joaquin Phoenix is an amazing actor and Reese Witherspoon did an awesome job as well.

I've watched Ray but haven't watched walk the line. I really loved Ray. Jamie Foxx did a very good job.

I really liked Walk The Line.

I saw both, and fell in love with Walk The Line.

They were both excellent, but I think Ray was maybe better

I love Joaquin Phoenix's acting. So walk the line.. he should have won an oscar!

Ray was great, but the second half got a bit drawn out. I enjoyed Walk the Line quite a lot. On balance I think I probably prefered Ray, just about
