“Creed” is a 2015 sports film written by Aaron Covington and Ryan Coogler, who also directed the film. It is the seventh movie in the Rocky Balboa film series. It features Michael B. Jordan as boxer “Donnie” Creed who is following in the steps of his father Apollo Creed who played a major role in the first four films in the series. Sylvester Stallone once again steps out as Rocky Balboa. The film features Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Wood Harris, Tony Bellew, and Graham McTavish. The film is a retelling of Rocky’s story. It is something we all know because we have watched it so many times over the years. Donnie Creed is the underdog of this film and his story parallels Rocky’s from the first film. The film in Coogler’s hands makes one of the best films about a kid trying to make his mark in the world. Maryse Alberti’s cinematography is equally as amazing as the direction and you will feel every punch in this film. The movie did very well with the critics and box office and gives birth to yet another sequel in the series.
The Beer Lover’s Guide to the Movies suggests pairing this movie with Coors Light from the Molson Coors Brewing Company. This light beer has 110 calories per 12 ounces and an ABV of 4.2%. It is a very pale-yellow straw color. It has the aroma of corn, grain, and fruity notes to it. This beer has a light taste and mouthfeel to it and tastes of corn with some hoppiness to it. I chose this beer because Michael B. Jordan, and the other boxers in the film all have Body Mass Indexes under 10. They have no fat. I do not have a BMI that low, not even close, and this film makes my aging body feel heavy, so I want a low calorie beer and this one is pretty good.
