Creed ★★★★★

A worthy successor to the Rocky franchise that's on par with (and maybe even better) than the original film.

Wow- this flew under the radar and could've easily been a cynical cash grab, but instead they decided to knock it out of the park. I'm hesitant to go the full five stars on a first-time watch but what the heck.

I'm really anxious to see what Ryan Coogler can do with The Black Panther if he gets that film.

And nice to see Michael B. Jordan rebound from Fant4stic- what a year 2015 was for him, starring in both the worst film and now one of the best.

I hope they make a bunch of sequels- and maybe Ivan Drago has a kid floating around somewhere so we can get the ultimate grudge match. Will Rocky's kid be jealous of his relationship with Creed? They could go any number of different directions.

Now, excuse me while I go back and watch all of the Rocky movies.
