I went into Chris Rock’s Top Five with a checklist of expectations, and I am happy to say that my expectations were met, and even exceeded in places. If you’re extremely spoiler-phobic, and don’t like to know anything about any movie, best to bow out now. Full Story

This weekend there are two new major releases in theaters: Exodus: Gods & Guyliner and Chris Rock’s Top Five. If you’re going to the movies, go see Top Five. Ridley Scott thinks he couldn’t make Exodus without white leads, but we have a chance to empirically prove he’s wrong. Full Story

There’s been a discussion lately about the whitewashing of Exodus. Sarah posted about it here the other day. Exodus opens on December 12. Some are calling for a boycott. Why don’t we call it an alternative? Chris Rock’s Top Five opens wide on the same day. Full Story

Back at TIFF, Chris Rock’s Top Five, which he wrote, directed, and stars in, sold for an incredible $12.5 million after a heated bidding war. The movie was fast-tracked for release by Paramount and is now due out on December 12, which means that Rock is on the shill. Full Story

The Academy’s annual Governor’s Awards happened on Saturday night. So many of them showed up. They showed up because this is when you kiss the Academy’s ass. We are balls deep into award season now. And every opportunity counts. If you don’t show up, and when of your rivals shows up, you’re going to be hearing about it the next day. Full Story

LOVE this video. Chris Rock and Nia Long are promoting his documentary Good Hair. During this random, hilarious interview, somehow the discussion turns to white dudes dating black girls.
