True Bromance Film Podcast

In 2015 Ryan Coogler breathed new life into the long-running Rocky franchise with Creed so, naturally, we must have a sequel. Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, and Tessa Thompson are all back to give us more of the melodrama and pugilistic violence that we crave but this time they're guided by Steven Caple Jr., as Coogler chose to focus on a little independent film rather than return.

MOVIES DISCUSSED THIS WEEK:
