    DVD/VOD Review - Chris Rock's 'Good Hair' Is Really An Ad For The Bronner Bros Hair Show

    I skipped this when it was in the theaters in 2009, after reading hearing about how empty, though funny, it was. At the time, there seemed to be plenty of mainstream media focus on *blackness*. It was the year that CNN debuted its Black In America series, and also there was a lot of attention being ...

    Chris Rock Sets Up Showbiz Rom-Com To Star In & Direct This Summer

    Deadline is reporting this as an *exclusive* today, but, really, we posted the news almost a month ago, when Showbiz 411 first reported it, also as an *exclusive* to them. Showbiz411 is obviously not as big an industry news site as Deadline is, so I think many missed the initial announcement last mo...

    Chris Rock Will Be 'Finally Famous'

    There’s no denying that Chris Rock is one of the most talented stand-up comedians of our time. His career as actor/writer/director, however, is a bit more dubious. His two films, “Head of State” and “I Think I Love My Wife” did not open to much fanfare and have since been largely forgotten. That sai...

    'CB4' Turns 20 This Year - Time For A Sequel?

    1993 was actually a decent year for black cinema, or blacks in cinema (in the USA anyway); I'm planning on introducing anniversary retrospectives, throughout the year from 2013 and on - something I really should have started years ago. But, better late than never.

    'Louie' Gets In Touch With the Lynchian Side of Show Business in 'Late Show Part 2'

    To Louis C.K., the business side of comedy obviously has some Lynchian aspects -- so much so that when he's told to report to an executive in New York who'll train him "Late Show Part 2," the man, Jack Dall, is actually played by David Lynch.

    Recap: 'Louie' Gets An Unlikely Talk-Show Sensei

    With apologies, it's been a little while since we checked in in "Louie" -- we were partly interrupted by festival-related travels and because the show took last week off, presumably because it would have clashed with Barack Obama's speech at the DNC. Or the VMAs. Happily, over the past weeks, Louis ...
