I wish I had more to say. Thought I could go on for hours about this one, but it's just good. A bit lightweight, but Paul Feig's movies are. It looks good, cast is good, some of 'em very good but by now you know who so I'm not gonna turn this into an echo chamber, writing's good if you remember it's not 1985, cameos are good and nice. Probably Feig's second best movie other than The Heat. Why couldn't…
I'm really happy there are still more good Rocky movies than bad ones. From last year there are more alright-to-bad Terminator films than there are great ones. That should break your heart.
Calling this another Rocky film's a bit unfair, because it's not. I mean it IS but it's not. Michael B. Jordan plays Adonis, Apollo's son from a fling, adopted by his wife after he dies. After Apollo dies I should say, not Adonis. You can't adopt dead people…
For the first fifteen minutes it's unwatchable. I mean properly. It's almost like some sort of endurance test. "Think you're tough, do you? Think you're HARD? BAM, THE MOST ANNOYING OPENING TO A MOVIE, EVER." It's just a barrage of bleating and overly-cute camera work and annoying, annoying, ANNOYING characters. I was this close to turning it off. I had the remote in my hand at least twice.
But then something happens. It's hard to describe. It's like the movie…
