Since Rocky IV there hadn’t been a decent installment in this legendary boxing movie franchise until Creed. Creed, written by Black Panther writer/director Ryan Coogler, is an incredibly crafted story of a young man who’s chasing his deceased father’s legacy, Apollo Creed, while building a legacy of his own. It’s filled with raw emotion, incredible acting, and realistic moments that truly ground the film in ways I haven’t seen since Rocky III.
Now, Creed returns with a new challenge. He must face the son of his father’s killer in a boxing match of the ages. So, to get you pumped for that exciting event, here’s the second trailer of Creed II.

I was lucky enough to watch Solo in the movies back in early June and while I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy it turns out it was one of the greatest surprises of the year. But how was it going to hold up at home? I’m glad to report to you that it is just as fun to watch at home as it was in the movie theaters.
Solo is easily one of the greatest Star Wars movies ever made with its unique western style and its adventurous tone. Alden Ehrenreich nails the role of Han Solo to the point that I never once miss Harrison Ford while watching the film. The action scenes are superbly crafted and choreographed. And the inevitable bromance between Chewbacca and Han is a thing of fairy tales.
For all of its behind-the-scenes flaws and shakeups the film turned out to be a complete delight with nary a mistake woven into the story. All of the actors fit superbly into their roles. No scene feels disjointed or out of place. And the end of the film screams for a sequel that, unfortunately, will probably never happen, which is a huge bummer.
All in all, I hoped that Solo would end up being as enjoyable as it was the first time I watched it and I’m glad to say that it was. If you haven’t seen this movie and are skeptical about its chances of being fun to watch I highly advise you to check it out. It honestly is worth the watch without all of the tiresome dialogue that hindered The Last Jedi‘s popularity.
Solo is a good old-fashioned Star Wars adventure and it has definitely rekindled my love for the franchise.
