Walk the Line
We went to see Walk the Line this weekend, and while I'm not a fan of biopics in general, I have to admit I was fairly impressed. I'm not going to review the film, but I will highly recommend it. Joaquin Phoenix clearly did his homework, and Reese Witherspoon was more tolerable than usual.
Some interesting Cash facts I learned (possible spoilers if you haven't seen the film): "Ring of Fire" was actually written by June Carter, not Johnny. Also, Johnny wrote "Folsom Prison Blues" when stationed overseas in the Air Force, and it ended up being the song that convinced Sam Phillips to give Cash a record deal:

Another great scene in the movie depicts Cash's performance of this song at Folsom Prison, which the convicts loved, much to the warden's dismay:
