Week of September 19th through Sept. 23rd
ROLL BOUNCE opens Sept. 23rd

Directed by Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man, Undercover Brother), "Roll Bounce" is set in the late '70s, when roller skating was a way of life, and X (Bow Wow) and his pals ruled supreme. But when the doors of their local skating rink close, it marks the end of an era and the beginning of another that sees the boys venture into foreign territory -- uptown's Sweetwater Roller Rink, complete with its over-the-top skaters and beautiful girls. Through his preparation for the showdown of the season -- the Roller Jam skate off with the Sweetwater crew -- X manages to find himself and also help his dad (Chi McBride) get back on track.

Latest Review Additions:
Roll Bounce (in Film )
Far from perfect, as there are several clichés within the film, and some of the characters go undeveloped, but overall, the film offers enough wit and charm that should please all that come to see it.
Flightplan (in Film )
You know what you're getting with Jodie Foster and Peter Sarsgaard, and they don't disappoint.
Racing Against The Clock (in Film )
A heartwarming documentary of women empowerment.
The Constant Gardener Review (in Film )
The Constant Gardner is an intellectual film with a purpose.  It is thoughtful and provocative, but not nearly the suspenseful thriller it’s made out to be.

The Man Review (in Film )
"The Man" is another black and white buddy movie where the jokes are flat and the talent is wasted.

Carlito's Way: Rise To Power Review (in Film )
If you're looking for a action packed, gunslinging gangsta this is not the film.
