Creed II- The motivational film you need to watch this winter|Movie Review

creed 2

Creed II is a 2018 Drama/Sport film starring Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren and Florian Munteanu. It is directed by Steven Caple Jr., mostly known for A Different Tree and The Land. A synopsis for this film via IMDb reads: “Years after Adonis Creed made a name for himself under Rocky Balboa’s mentorship, the young boxer becomes the Heavyweight Champion of the World. While life is good with that victory and his marriage to Bianca, trouble comes to Philadelphia when Ivan Drago, the Russian boxer who killed Adonis’ father, Apollo, arrives with his son, Viktor, to challenge Adonis. Against Rocky’s advice, Adonis accepts the challenge without his mentor’s participation and pays the price in a punishing bout he wins only by a technicality. Now injured and demoralized, Adonis cannot bring himself to back into the game, leaving his spirit and title in jeopardy. Together, Adonis’ family and Rocky must find a way to rekindle Adonis’ fighting spirit to face the future in whatever choice he makes. Meanwhile, the Drago family have its own troubles trying to regain the respect in their homeland that they lost at Rocky’s hands as they wonder whether is it truly worth it.”

I would like to start off my review by saying that this is a superb film to watch, it is the motivational kind of movie that we all need to watch when we doubt ourselves. The story is so well written and depicted that it makes time fly away, while enjoying it. I really liked this cinema piece, as the characters were well defined and dependent on each other. The story could not have developed if Viktor and Ivan Drago and Rocky Balboa weren’t in this film. The fights (and there were plenty) were great, but the movie was much more than about the fights. It was about family, loss, motivation, legacy, and the part that really touched me was the focus on the relationship between fathers and sons. Dolph Lungdren and Florian Munteanu were the perfect choices for the villains, but unlike most films, in this one you see the loss that the villains endured and what shapes them. I couldn’t help but feel for them a little too – particularly the son. What I also enjoyed was the fact that Rocky was portrayed as a wise man and the perfect coach for Adonis, and this film could have easily been more about Rocky and his rivalry with Ivan Drago, but the director knew exactly what dosage to use to portray this ‘rocky’ relationship. I really can’t find anything about this movie, even the soundtrack was perfect. I was proud to see a Romanian actor, Florian Munteanu, who plays Viktor Drago, having such an important role, and I believe he played his part flawlessly.

On the whole, Creed II is the motivational film you need to watch this winter. I know I’ll definitely watch it again sometime soon. If I were to rate it I would give it a 9 out of 10. In my books it is definitely better than the first film, story wise, as the stakes are higher now. Creed II is now at the cinema worldwide.

The best TV show on Netflix| TV Shows

the haunting of hill house

Hey guys, you may have noticed that I’ve stopped posting on YouTube and here on my blog. Don’t worry, I’ll start posting again when I’ll get some free time. This post is a beginning.

Today I want to talk to you about one of the best TV shows that is now available to stream on Netflix.

It probably isn’t the best Netflix show as I said in my title, but it’s the best of its category: horror tv shows. The programme is called The Haunting of Hill House and its synopsis according to IMDb is the following: “Flashing between past and present, a fractured family confronts haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it”.

IMDb users have given this TV show a rating of 9 out of 10!!! so this must be good. And that taking into account the votes of nearly 40 000 users.

What makes this show so special I hear you ask. Well, it’s scary AF. The story is captivating and engaging. It’s a story about a haunted house and a troubled family and we, as viewers see the evolution of this family.

Switching back and forth from past to present has always been my favourite, but I loved how it played out here. What I really liked was the fact that every character was explained so that after watching an episode you’ll understand better their involvement in the whole story.

The visuals on this TV show are spectacular and the creeps we get on every episode make viewers craving for more. I can’t say anything negative about this series. It’s well written, the actors are well-suited for their characters, plenty of ghosts and moments that will make you watch some episodes with your light on.

You don’t necessarily have to be a fan of the horror genre to love this series. I BET you that even those who are sceptical will find it interesting.

On the whole, The Haunting of Hill House is a tv series that is not to be missed. Trust me, you’ll binge the hell out those 10 episodes. And you’ll want more. I really hope there is going to be a season 2, but I don’t see how they can continue the story with the same family.
