2. Creed (2015)
This time, Stallone plays the trainer, making longshot contender Michael B. Jordan
chase chickens and shadowbox, just as his trainer Mickey (Burgess Meredith) did to him. Sadly, he does not say, “You’re gonna eat lightning and crap thunder,” but lots of the Rocky scenes you like are back in fresher form. Plus, Jordan and cowriter/director Ryan Coogler
prove "Fruitvale Station" was no fluke. I’m not saying Stallone’s an Oscar contender, but pundits like Jenelle Riley are.
