Review: Steven Caple Jr's 'Creed II' Packs an Emotional One-Two Punch

When Creed was released in 2015, co-writer and director Ryan Coogler (of Fruitvale Station and Black Panther) pulled off a seemingly impossible task: staying true to the spirit of the film’s iconic predecessors while forging its own path — not unlike the odyssey of its protagonist, Adonis "Donnie" Creed (Michael B. Jordan), searching for an identity and fighting for an opportunity to prove his own self-worth. The film reinvigorated and expanded the Rocky series by returning to its underdog roo...

‘Creed II’ Featurettes: Will History Repeat Itself?

Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago stepped into a boxing ring back in 1985, but only Drago stepped out. The steroid-fueled Russian dealt a fatal blow to the charismatic American, leading Apollo’s rival-turned-friend Rocky Balboa to avenge him in the ring. Now, more than 30 years later, Apollo’s son is looking for his own revenge. In this month’s Creed II, actor Michael B. Jordan reprises his role as Adonis Creed, and he’s fighting against not only Drago’s son, but against the weight of expectation and...

Burn the monster, steal his jokes

Wesley Morris unsurprisingly has written a very good essay about Bill Cosby — specifically, the ways in which Cosby created and blended his own persona along with that of his signature character Cliff Huxtable. He did this to root himself in America’s psychological life, and to make himself indispensable in the entertainment industry, both of which shielded him for many years from the consequences of his crimes. It was, as Morris says, Cosby’s “sickest joke.” Bill Cosby was good at his job. Tha...

Phylicia Rashad is a tour de force in ‘Head of Passes’ at LA’s Mark Taper Forum

Every once in a while, one comes across a performance that may even outweigh the play it takes place in. In this case, a good play becomes greater because of one person who takes a playwright’s words and their own and their director’s understandings and makes of them something much more than the sum of those parts. This is Phylicia Rashad in “Head of Passes,” now at the Mark Taper Forum. In Tarell Alvin McCraney’s modern spin on trials worthy of Job, a woman’s plans for a quiet conversation with...
