Chris Rock has been in a host of movies – some good, some not so much – but first time, he’s made a film that feels true to the person we’ve come to know from his stand up. Top Five is loud and rude and angry – but it’s also thoughtful, thought-provoking and tender.
This evening at 10/9C, HBO is presenting Colin Quinn’s comedy special, Long Story Short – We Came. We Saw. We Screwed Up. The History of the World in 75 Minutes. It seems to me that this is the kind of guy I could get behind – wouldn’t he have made a great high school history teacher? Education’s loss is our gain. Check out a clip from the show and a brief peek behind-the-scenes after the jump.
Ok, I don’t buy it. Kanye was on Jay Leno’s new show last night and he broke down when Jay asked him what Kanye’s mother would have thought about is behavior at the VMAs. The moment felt staged to me. I’ve always really liked Kanye – until he decided to become a “singer.” He’s not afraid to speak his mind, his interrupting Taylor Swift’s moment at the VMAs was classless, but now it seems like useless piling on. Let it go people. Here’s the clip from Jay Leno and after the break you can see some more highlights from Leno’s premiere show. I don’t keep up with today’s music any more, do they even show music videos, anywhere? I know they don’t on MTV so the very idea they have a Video Music Awards show is laughable. Anyway, I digress, was Beyonce’s video that good?
Jerry Seinfeld’s first excursion into the realm of CG animation is a lively, sleek [82 mins] legal comedy, ecological fable and unlikely romance – starring bees. Thanks to Dreamworks Animation and a heartfelt script, Bee Movie is actually the second movie I’ve seen in the last little while to warrant audience applause.
