This week on End Credits, leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet’s get ready to rumble!!!!! Of course there will be no real rumbling, unless there’s some violent disagreement about the quality of this week’s movie, which is about boxing obviously. We’re reviewing Creed III, and in honour of the recently completed Oscar cycle, we will re-write history to fix some historic wrongs.
This Wednesday, March 15, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
Comic Gold. The Oscars were handed out last weekend, and a lot of the trophies went to Everything Everywhere All at Once, and while there are some comedic (zany?) elements to that movie, you can’t really call it a comedy. It’s a truism that if you want to win an Oscar, you’re probably not going to make a funny movie, but what if life were a little more fair? What if they gave out Oscars more often to comedies? This week, we’ll re-balance the scales.
REVIEW: Creed III. In Creed, Michael B. Jordan played the son of original Rocky adversary Apollo Creed, a man struggle to break free of his father’s shadow and create his own legacy, and by the start of Creed III he’s done it! But look out, because the past comes back to haunt the new Creed in the form of Jonathan Majors, an old friend who’s boxing career was waylaid by two decades in prison. Jordan not only stars, but he takes over the directing duties too, which is doubling the pressure on this franchise and its star so did Jordan knock it out, or did he get knocked out?
