Does the Director have an ounce of respect for the original?


Blasting a bunch of rap music, making the lead character an unlikeable Beta Male, and completely pissing all over the message that the only person you need to prove anything to in life is yourself.....wow was this a hot stinker.

Coogler mentioned how his own father loved the original Rocky(s) so yes I'm sure he did respect it. I liked how he showed the current Philly urban environment, how much it changed (or in some cases didn't m) from even Rocky 5 is really cool, not to mention the first one. I really enjoyed this movie.

I agree the rap music was a disaster but I didn't think Creed Jr was unlikable.

Every Michael Jordan without the middle name Jeffrey is a beta male in comparison.
