Roll Bounce DVD Review

Bow Wow stars as a jam-skater in 1978 Chicago in the new movie, Roll Bounce. Find out if this rapper-turned-actor can wow you with his performance!

Roll Bounce - A Wheel Good Time

In the '70s, disco music was all the rage, roller skating was a way of life and Xavier (played by Bow Wow) and his pals ruled the Palisades Gardens Rink. But when it shuts down, the boys have to head across town to Sweetwater Roller Rink, where the threads are glitzier, the girls are prettier and the roller skatin' moves are a whole lot trickier. X realizes that his skills are no match for the Sweetwater crew, who have some of the most fearsome moves on wheels! But it's game on when they challenge each other to an end-of-summer skate off.

Roll Bounce - Skating Slip-Ups

X's life isn't just about rolling, bouncing and spinning though - he's dealing with the recent loss of his mother and trying to mend a troubled relationship with his father. This is where the movie slows down and takes one too many serious turns, as X prepares for the Roller Jam showdown while coming to terms with his family responsibilities. Roll Bounce is also pretty predictable at times, but it does give you an awesome look into the roller-disco craze of the '70s.

Roll Bounce - DVD Features

For Bow Wow fans, the Roll Bounce DVD is a must-have. Listen to commentary from your fave hip-hopper, along with director Malcolm Lee and Bow Wow's co-stars, Mike Epps and Chi McBride. There are twelve deleted scenes, a gag reel, music videos and behind-the-scenes featurettes. Dy-no-mite.

Roll Bounce - The Bottom Line

There's no doubt about it - Roll Bounce is a must-see. The roller skating moves are funky fresh, and Bow Wow proves that he's not only a good rapper but also a good actor. Check out this flick before it bounces out of the theatres!

    Alright let me start out by saying that, I do not think you should be forced to like anime. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions out what they watch. But their is some bogus reason to why people say they hate it. 1. "Anime is For Kids" - Alright we all know this isn't true. Sure some are directed towards kids but ones like Tokyo Ghoul, Attack On Titan, Boku no Pico, and several others that would definitely change people's mind. 2. "Anime is a bad influence" - And Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Walking Dead arent?  3. "Anime has very inappropriate messages to them that are harmful to children and adults" - Doesnt everything have their little "parodies" of the original that may have a rating of Triple X? If its out there, there is a "parody" of it. Not just anime.
