Latest Review Additions:
50 First Dates (in Film)
Unbelievably, Adam Sandler’s 50 First Dates is a great film. It has it all, humor, a clever concept, and amazingly, a beautiful romance that will leave audiences enchanted.
Barbershop 2 (in Film)
While the story gets a little hammy at times, the barbershop crew will keep you laughing from beginning to end.
The Dreamers (in Film)
NC-17, the rarest animal in pop cinema, is delivered like a freight train. The Dreamers is not to be missed.
You Got Served (in Film)
While the acting and the plot of the film isn't worth exploring, it's the dance scenes and the music that makes the film worth seeing.
The Big Bounce (in Film)
The Big Bounce tries to be a quirky comedy caper, in the same vein as Get Shorty and Jackie Brown.  Those movies succeeded grandly whereas this film crashes and burns.
The Perfect Score (in Film)
The Perfect Score is an entertaining film. The filmmakers took a test that unfairly decides the future of every kid and hammers it with a very humorous story.
Only the Strong DVD Review (in Film)
These so called "forgotten" artists of yesteryear will be forgotten no more.
Win a Date with Tad Hamilton (in Film)
Win a Date with Tad Hamilton is disarmingly good.  Teenage girls all over are going to get their money’s worth. 
Torque (in Film)
Torque is essentially an eighty-minute music video with ten minutes of preposterous video game CGI. 
Belly DVD Release (in Film)
The DVD that current hip-hops comes back with more flavor.
