Strike up the band, because we're kicking off a brand new miniserieis -- this time on the films of 2004!

In this episode, Mike and Brian reevaluate director Taylor Hackford's Best Picture-nominated musical biopic, "Ray," which landed Jamie Foxx a Best Actor Oscar. They debate the importance of staying true to the facts in movies about historical figures, dissect Foxx's breakout role as Ray Charles, talk trivia and -- the big reveal -- decide whether to keep or kick this film from their top fives for 2004.
