I adore the Rocky films with Rocky 4 being my favourite and, as far as I'm concerned, an absolute masterpiece. However, the original Creed was let down by the fact that Bluenose and all round embarrassing Scouser Tony Bellew was in it. I thought the second one would be better purely down to the fact Bellew wasn't in it, and especially since Ivan Drago is. However, this, too, was disappointing. But, having said that, these aren't proper Rocky films anyway, are they?
I put this on nice and early because I knew it was on a while. After a while, I paused it for a piss, then, a little while later, I paused it again to make a brew. A bit later I paused it a third time to get some food. Then, half an hour after I'd eaten I fell asleep watching it and when I woke up it was still on, so I paused it for another piss. When I turned it back on, there was still an hour left. I'm not joking. It's on for-fucking-ever. Yet it still feels rushed and all over the place.
This is a documentary about the prosecution of a Nazi who more than played his part in the horrors of Auschwitz. He claimed he did no wrong but even at the outrageous age that he is, motherfucker still needs to get his commupence.
This is about how Ford took on Ferrari to try to win the Le Mans 24 Hour Race back in the 60s. It's no Days of Thunder but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Christian Bale and Matt Damon are always worth watching although, whilst historically accurate, the former's accent - not for the first time (err Batman) - annoyed me somewhat. If you like racing films, you'll obviously enjoy this.
I like Jordan Peterson - he's intelligent, articulate and passionate about his beliefs - but I do think the noise around him now is too much. I agreed with the original point he made about drawing a line in the sand somewhere regarding free speech but he has now chosen to die on that hill and it's not a hill I would die on. People on both sides - both in favour of him and fervently against him - have missed the point and are jumping on the band wagon in both directions, muddying the waters. He, too, in defence of himself has, at times, gone too far and become a caricature of himself. The amount of money he is making with these pursuits are also making some people question his motives. I think Bernie Schiff summed it up best when he said that Peterson is polarising at a time when more polarisation is not what we need.
