Top Five (Blu-ray Review)

Top Five is Chris Rock’s third go-around as writer/director of a feature film. His first film(s) were Head of State, and I Think I Love My Wife.  I have not seen those two but was really anxious to see his latest film Top Five. The buzz surrounding Top Five was favorable and the trailers and promotional materials were pretty funny, so it […]

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – The New York Giants Are Back!!!
