‘Top Five’ Review: The First Great Chris Rock Movie

EDIT

Chris Rock has made movies before, but ‘Top Five’ is the first great “Chris Rock movie,” the one that feels like the product of the best and most important stand-up comic of his generation. ‘Top Five’ is infused from top to bottom with Rock’s voice, his humor, and also his love of movies. Rock, a self-avowed cinephile, has borrowed liberally from some of his favorite films (including Richard Linklater’s ‘Before Sunset,’ Preston Sturges’ ‘Sullivans Travels,’ and Woody Allen’s ‘Stardust Memories’) in creating the story of a disillusioned stand-up comic turned sellout movie star on the cusp of becoming a “serious” actor. The way Rock digests his inspirations, filters them through his own unique perspective, and spits them back out on the screen as something wholly his own recalls the way Quentin Tarantino turns exploitation obscurities into prestigious arthouse fare.

'Top Five' Red Band Trailer: Chris Rock's Directorial Debut Looks Appropriately Inappropriate

Last month we checked out the first green band trailer for ‘Top Five,’ but now Chris Rock’s directorial debut has revealed a red band trailer, which also reveals all of that NSFW language and humor that the first trailer had to hold back. Rock may be taking his leap from actor and comedian to director seriously, but you didn’t think a film directed by Chris Rock would be totally void of F-bombs, did you?

Chris Rock: Comedian, actor, and now he can add director to his resume with 'Top Five,' a film that had plenty of people talking when it premiered at this year's film festival in Toronto. Paramount wasted no time picking the film up, and it seems like the studio is wasting very little time in getting Rock's very promising directorial debut out there as quickly as possible. Judging by the first trailer, featuring a cast of incredibly funny and talented folks, this is going to be delightful.

Casting on 'True Detective' season 2 has been equal parts crapshoot, publicist spin and investigative free-for-all, but where we thought a female lead had been narrowed between 'Mad Men''s Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams, the dam has burst wide open to suggest that Jessica Biel, Rosario Dawson, Marvel favorite Jaimie Alexander and at least 4 more names are all in the running for our next 'True Detective' mystery.

If Marvel's 'Daredevil' series is setting the template for the kind of casting we'll see in all of their upcoming shows, color us excited. The latest addition to the cast is Rosario Dawson, who has joined the 13-episode series in a mystery role. The details are scarce at the moment, but it's tough to recall a movie that wasn't actively boosted by her presence, so this could only be a good thing.

With so much attention lavished on comic book adaptations, it's surprising that 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' isn't projected to be one of the bigger films of the summer. Then again, it doesn't feature any superheroes, and it's a sequel to a film that came out nine years ago. But to stoke interest in the return to 'Sin City,' character posters have been released.

Released in 2001 and based on the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon of the same name, 'Josie and the Pussycats' follows a girl band whose sudden rise to fame is engineered by a record label using their music to brainwash teenagers. The bubbly satirical film starred Rachael Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson, and Tara Reid, and although it was a failure at the box office, it went on to find a following over the years on home video and cable, becoming something of a cult classic in its own right -- more like a "pop-cult classic." 13 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.

'Trance' Review

After trying his hand at science-fiction, winning an Oscar, and testing himself with a one-actor film about a dude with his hand stuck under a rock, director Danny Boyle returns to familiar territory with 'Trance': the lives of scheming, feuding thieves. When Boyle makes movies about criminals, he rarely focuses on their crimes to look instead at their fallout -- these are what we might call "after-the-heist films." The heist, in a Boyle movie, is the easy part. It's living with yourself, and your accomplices that's hard.
