Chris Rock talked to black people in Compton about what they think of Oscar movies

One of Chris Rock’s bits during the Oscars used a classic man-on-the-street comedy technique to get at the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

He went to¬†Compton and talked to black moviegoers about this year’s Oscar-nominated movies.

He did the same thing when he hosted the Oscars the first time in 2005. But this time it worked a little better seeing how it touched on a news topic in a sometimes-hilarious, and ultimately sobering way.

Especially when one of the people he interviews is convinced the real movie titles he mentions aren’t real.
