Movie Meltdown: Creed and Justin Golak
This week we welcome the return of comedian Justin Golak to discuss this week’s Sofa Theater feature: Ryan Coogler’s Creed. Plus we go into some of the other movies we’ve seen recently, if it’s worth getting a MoviePass and just what is the state of the modern comedy films these days.
And as we compare and contrast the modern-era Rockys, we also bring up… Blockers, Rampage, Game Night, The Death of Stalin, Super Troopers 2, like a puppy, too far Germany, the last days of me, they can’t not do it, the music, Black Panther, born and bred, I think it’s the best comedy on television now, convince the viewer, weathered wisdom, I’ve made a commitment to the future, Chris Rock, bold move as a mom, there’s a lot of real tissue connected to that fictional story, Mystery Team, it’s such a legacy film, you can’t out-train it… you can’t outlast it, this many years in, Tessa Thompson, twelve rounds for this man to prove that he is worthy of being alive, it was like… funnier than you maybe would have wanted to think it was, I think it’s what was written that drove his performance, a weird real world level, he’s frustratingly likeable, Cobra Kai in Russia, Phylicia Rashad, theater combat, they’re different versions of a fighter, boxing has just changed so much over the years, the editing, it still works, it’s cool to see the city you live in torn apart, Ivan Drago, The Rock, Veep, we’re in like… the triple part of the triple axel, you never wanna see the wrestlers that don’t plan for their future and somewhere called Vancouver.
“…to me, this is the hardest move for a franchise to make.”
