A Split Decision for Chuck

THE BLEEDERHere’s my NPR review of Chuck, a biopic about Chuck Wepner, the self-sabotaging New Jersey boxer who inspired Sylvester Stallone to write Rocky.  It ain’t bad, but I wanted to love it. Anyway, Rocky already has a wonderful latter-day lega-sequel.

Gonna Fly Again: Creed, reviewed.

In my NPR review of writer-director Ryan Coogler’s stirring new Rocky sequel Creed, I avoid mentioning that I sorta-cried four times during this movie but only once during Inside Out. Read it here, and Happy Thanksgiving.
