Theater V: Creed

This week we’re going on a trip to Philly to get some quality training from a boxing legend in 2015’s Creed.  This is the most recent installment in the Rocky franchise and it follows Apollo Creed’s illegitimate son, Adonis Johnson, on his journey to become a professional boxer.  Adonis moves from LA to Philadelphia to get training and mentorship from his father’s greatest friend and rival, Rocky Balboa.  While in Philly, Adonis meets a lovely young musician name Bianca and romance quickly blossoms.  Eventually, Adonis is publicly revealed to be Apollo Creed’s son and he is sought after to fight the current WBC champion, Pretty Ricky Conlan.  As Adonis and Rocky are getting to work preparing for the big fight, Rocky has a health scare that puts momentary strain on their relationship before bringing them closer together than ever.  The story culminates with the biggest fight of Adonis’ life as he tries to prove his worth to himself and to the world.  This is a pretty good movie that hits almost all of the buttons for a quality Rocky flick.  Why didn’t Adonis, the wealthy kid from LA, get a better apartment in Philly?  What is the exact timeline of this movie?  Were those really Paulie’s dirty magazines?  Should they have trimmed a few minutes off of the love story?  Did the ending lead into a perfect setup for a sequel?  Thank you for all of the love you continue to show us.  Please rate and review the podcast wherever you get it and if you like the show, share it with your friends.  Have a great week.
