Oh, you thought I was done obsessing over Creed II? I’m not. Today the focus of my obsession is what Tessa Thompson brought to her role as Bianca. The Rocky franchise is all about the underdog story. It’s about triumph in the face of insurmountable circumstances. It’s about striving for an impossible dream. Full Story

Creed II: The soundtrack

Kathleen Posted by Kathleen at November 27, 2018 22:24:45 November 27, 2018 22:24:45

“Eye of The Tiger” is one of the most iconic movie songs of all time. It’s one of the reasons Rocky III is my favourite Rocky movie. I feel like the heavyweight champion of the world just listening to it. Find me in the gym (lol) listening to this song and I’m throwing jab crosses in the air like a fool. Full Story

Michael B Jordan in Creed II

It’s going to be impossible for me to put aside my bias to write this review. My dog’s name is Apollo Creed. My big brother and I would watch Rocky marathons all day until our parents forced us to go do our homework or something more productive than yelling “Adrian!” at each other for hours and pretending to run up the “Rocky Steps”. Full Story

Michael B Jordan is in Toronto today promoting Creed II. He is not coming on our show and I have to be at work instead of casually showing up where he’ll be and initiating my 9-step “Casual Run-in With MBJ, Make Him Fall in Love with Me” plan so I don’t want to talk about Michael Bae Jordan Full Story

If there’s anyone who could make me re-evaluate my Chris rankings, it’s Tessa Thompson. Pine is still my number one but watching Tessa and Chris Hemsworth hang out while shooting the new Men in Black is really strengthening Hemsworth’s stock. He only slightly edged out his brother Liam as my best Hemsworth after Thor: Ragnorok, thanks again to Tessa (and Taika Waititi), so this is high praise from me. Full Story

Creed II is the good stuff

The first trailer for Creed II just dropped and Kathleen is too busy to watch it. This is her nightmare. No one loves Michael B. Jordan as much as she does, and this trailer is basically two minutes of shirtless, glistening MBJ as he says things like, “We’re a team now,” which I imagine Kathleen hears as being spoken directly to her. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last week, after Emma Stone’s interview for ELLE by Jennifer Lawrence came out, I posted about how, more and more, especially in major magazines, celebrities are either interviewing themselves (Beyoncé) or interviewing each other and, as much as I love Beyoncé, there’s something that gets lost in the conversation… when there’s no conversation.  Read Full Intro

Coming out of Sundance, Boots Riley’s debut film, Sorry to Bother You, was hailed as “the next Get Out”, and it’s not hard to understand the comparison. Like Get Out, Sorry announces the arrival of a major new filmmaker, and like Get Out, it is (partly) about how America exploits its black citizens, particularly how it exploits black excellence, and specifically how that exploitation exists to maintain a white supremacist status quo. Full Story

Adonis Creed Returns

In 2015, Creed was a surprise. Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan, coming off Fruitvale Station, reinvigorated the Rocky franchise by making it about not only a new generation, but a new culture, passing the title and the franchise not to Rocky’s son but to Apollo Creed’s. Full Story
