    Interview…Ludwig Göransson Goes the Distance with ‘Creed II’

    2018 has been a tremendous year for Swedish-born Ludwig Göransson. He’s composed music to five films released this year alone to say nothing of his TV and songwriting credits. A phenomenal musician, and, seemingly, the hardest working man in the business, he’s quick to shrug off the praise, but his output is as varied as it is prolific. Humbly, Göransson says that he’s focused in the studio, and puts in long hours, but doesn’t work all night long. However he gets it done, Göransson‘s work speaks for itself, and his projects truly run the gamut. Ryan Coogler’s Creed didn’t just surprise us, it knocked us out cold. In short, the Creed films…

    Sweet Trailer…’CREED II’

    To use some boxing vernacular, when Ryan Coogler‘s Creed came out in 2015, it hit me a left hook (the film and the score). Earlier this week, we got our first look at the sequel to this new Rocky-based franchise. To be honest, this does comes as a bit of a surprise. Not just because Creed is a tough act to follow, but going for the emotional connection to previous Rocky films (read: Drago!), seems like the story is already backtracking when it should be moving forward. You can thank Sylvester Stallone who returns in front of the camera, and behind it with a writing credit. It will feel a little…

    Sweet Trailer…Rocky Spin-off ‘Creed’

    We haven’t posted many trailers lately (being new Dad takes a lot of time) but this one I had to jump on. The upcoming Rocky spin-off, Creed, will follow the story of Adonis Creed, son of former heavyweight champion Apollo. Michael B. Jordan stars as the titular lead, and, you guessed it, he will seek out the one and only Rocky Balboa to be his trainer. Yet, after looking at the trailer, it’s not that simple of a story, nor will it be as hollow as it sounds. After all, this is written and by Ryan Coogler who made waves with Fruitvale Station. It’s gotta be better than Grudge Match, right? Enjoy…

    Go, See, Thank: The Directors, Movies, and Actors We're Grateful For

    We’re a seasonal group here at Go, See, Talk!– one only need go back a month to our Halloween tournament for proof!– and so in the spirit of Turkey Day and giving thanks, we all got together and hand-picked one director, movie, and actor or actress apiece who we’re thankful for. If you know us well enough, then some of these picks should seem right in line with our proclivities and tastes. Then again, maybe we’ll surprise you anyhow. Bill Graham: The director I’m most thankful for is Guillermo del Toro. He lives and breathes monsters, and every time his name is attached to something new, I get a surge…

    Off the Shelf…'Rocky Balboa'

    When it first came out in theaters, I ventured out in the cold Christmas Day to see the 6th and final Rocky.  Well, it’s been a few years and piggybacking on my Off the Shelf write up of the first Rocky, I got the urge to watch the rest of the series (omitting part 5 because I refuse to acknowledge it’s existence, let alone purchase it) and finished up with this respectable film that really is better than I expected and I really liked it.
