Barbershop: The Next Cut

After 10 years we get a fresh new appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop on the South-side of Chicago.

The crew that we came to love is still there, but the shop has undergone a major change. Calvin’s is no longer a male only Barbershop. Calvin has a female partner and there are several chairs rented to female hair stylists.
The female hair stylists bring their own brand of hair fashion, drama and gossip.
All in all the shop is very lively. The conversations flow and the quips keep coming and are just enough to keep the customers coming in.

Calvin’s Barbershop becomes more than just a place to get a hair-cut, shave or shampoo. There is real crime and gang problems on the South-side of Chicago and Calvin is tired of the youth dying before they have a chance to grow up.

Calvin’s Barbershop devises a plan to orchestrate a cease-fire for 48 hours. The story unfolds from there…

“Barbershop: The Next Cut” is entertaining, funny, hilarious and at times preachy, but the movie does raise important questions after race, violence and sex.

“Barbershop: The Next Cut” is worth a look if for no other reason than the entertainment factor.

This is a 4 ½ Star Movie!

Top Five

“Top Five” plainly stated is Chris Rock “Stand-up in the Raw and on the Move”.

“Top Five” is about the “Show Business” bed being unmade. Chris Rock and his star studded cast blend comedy and seriousness with politics and everyday life situations from alcohol and drug use to romance, marriage and sex.

If you like Chris Rock in his stand-up comedy shows, you will like “Top Five”.

This movie is definitely not for anyone under the age of 17. There is strong profanity, strong sexual content, explicit nudity and crude humor throughout the movie.

This is a 3 Star Movie!
