Daniel Barnes @ the SN&R, 11/26 issue

creed-large*After a shockingly good first half that bursts with energy and invention, Ryan Coogler’s Rocky rehash Creed proves just good enough to be disappointing.

*An alternately grim and goo goo-eyed wrap-up to the Hunger Games film franchise, Mockingjay—Part 2 reaps the mistakes sown by the previous entries.

*Long-winded, dreadfully noble and blithely slanderous, Jay Roach’s Trumbo is the sort of film that gives liberal pap a bad name.
