After the “Creed” team won big at Friday night’s NAACP Image Awards, Sylvester Stallone took to Instagram to apologize for a few spelling errors he made in his victory post.

Michael B. Jordan Wins 2 Image Awards, as Well as Our Hearts

5 February 2016 10:35 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The weekend started on a great note for Michael B. Jordan! The actor was on hand for the NAACP Image Awards in La on Friday and took home two coveted honors: entertainer of the year and outstanding actor in a motion picture for his performance in Creed. Michael, who was just one of the handsome men to hit the red carpet for the ceremony, gave a heartfelt speech to the crowd, saying, "I used to sneak into the Image Awards, and now I'm standing here as the entertainer of the year, which is mind-blowing." Michael had the support of his Creed costar Sylvester Stallone, who presented an award on stage; Sly took some heat at the Golden Globes when he forgot to thank Michael and film director Ryan Coogler last month and later that night, Michael took to Instagram and uploaded a short video, saying he knew "exactly how @officialslystallone felt after the Globes. »

Movie Review – Creed (2016)

24 January 2016 5:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Creed, 2016.

Directed by Ryan Coogler.

Starring Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester StalloneTessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashād and Tony Bellew.

Synopsis:

Adonis Johnson, biological son of Apollo Creed wants to make it in the world of boxing. He seeks out Rocky Balboa to train him.

Rocky movies aren’t about how hard they hit, it’s about how many times they get hit and continue to make another.

Now that we have the cheesy opening line out the way we can get to whether Ryan Coogler’s Creed is just another run of the mill rehash of a once great series of movies or it’s the up from the canvas comeback I was hoping for (spoiler: firmly fits in the latter category).

The set up is predictably unpredictable. It’s all about getting to the montages and pearls of wisdom handed out by now restaurant owner, Rocky Balboa. You get enough »

A 2015 Slifr Movie Treehouse Digest

19 January 2016 10:49 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The Slifr Movie Treehouse (the acronym stands in for the title of my blog, Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule) is a place where I like to gather a few of my movie-writing pals and exchange long e-mails on the way the movies shaped up for us in the year just left behind. It’s been a few years since I’ve undertaken this project, but the time felt right again, so I invited the very talented critical voices of Brian Doan, Odie Henderson, Marya Murphy and Phil Dyess-Nugent to take part, and to my great happiness they all agreed. (Bios for each writer can be found at the conclusion of each of their individual posts, which can be accessed by clicking below on the title of each post.)

What follows here are samples from the 16 posts we submitted over the week of January 11-17, and we’ll start »
