I. Watched. All. Of. The. Rocky. Movies. I fell in love with them again. Mostly 1-4, but still. Then on Thanksgiving Day, my family and I went to the movies to see Creed. Now, they didn't binge the movies with me, but they were here for the movie.
Michael B. Jordan. I love him. I loved him then, I love him still.
I posted pictures from our Thanksgiving adventure this year to Instagram and was met with many opinions. But you know what they say about opinions...
I enjoyed the movie. I know that the storyline was almost identical to when Rocky fought Drago. I didn't care. These were different actors and there were different elements. Kind of.
This one was full of daddy issues. Viktor had daddy issues, Adonis had daddy issues, Adonis was a daddy issue, Rocky was a daddy issue.
Tessa Thompson. Lawd she's gorgeous! Phylicia Rashad is the epitome of black don't crack! Rocky was Rocky. I halfway expected him to die at some point in this movie.
We got Russia issues. We do.
The movie starts with Adonis winning the title of Heavyweight Champion of the World. He wins against the dude that he lost his daddy's Mustang to in the first Creed because he was cocky. He's still cocky. He has something to prove. Clearly he had never seen Viktor Drago. The dude is HUGE. Nobody wants him to fight him. I think I heard Apollo come back from the grave and say DON'T DO IT!
But he did it anyway didn't he. And he got his ass handed to him royally. Poor Rocky. I really felt bad for the guy. He didn't ask for any of this! LOL
I cheered in the movie. I laughed in the movie. I cried in the movie. I loved this movie! I'm slightly biased though. Because apparently I have an affinity for beautiful men. And yes, Adonis and Viktor are fine as hell.
Mrs. Ex-Drago is a douchebag. She doesn't deserve happiness. Daddy Drago needs to let that ISH go!
You felt the emotions of this movie. All of them. That combined with good acting made this one a winner in my book. I'll probably go and see it again.
