Hi Guys, This Is Justin Essien, I alongside some of my friends formed a whatsapp group (we named it BANTS) just to discuss and analyze movies. This was a random discussion that happened on the group and we decided to share it with you guys.

Read And Enjoy!



Contributors: Justin, Gbolahan, Chike, Mayowa.

Gbolahan: Saw creed last night

Justin: Cool

Gbolahan: U seem pumped about the movie the day you saw it,

Wasn't great for me

Justin: It was good... I love Boxing movies

But I hate Boxing, cause Boxing doesn't make any sense

Gbolahan: I can name like 3 boxing movies better

Justin: 3? Really? Anyways please don't say SouthPaw

Gbolahan: Okay maybe 2

What’s wrong with southpaw?

Justin: Is Southpaw Better than Creed?

Gbolahan: I would actually say southpaw is better

Creed lost me at content

Gbolahan: The training sequences and inside ring fights were mad tho

But outside the ring and wen he's not training I’m like blank

Justin: Lol is this a joke?

Gbolahan: U know i'm right

It didn't have everything a good boxing movie should have

Mayowa: Which is?

Chike: Creed is a continuation of the "Rocky Balboa" movie series

Creed had dope content If you are up to date in your "Rocky balboa" movies

Justin: Lol just free this guy matter, Southpaw was a very Basic movie. I expected more from a Boxing movie

Chike: Southpaw lost me content wise.. hot headed guy with temperament issues  wife killed which ultimately got his wife killed..

He messed himself up and came back up...

Justin: Very Basic

Chike: Not much content to me if u ask

Mayowa: True

Gbolahan: Really? Please which dope content? I've seen all rocky movies. I'm a sport movie fan

Justin: Who isn’t a sports movie fan?

Gbolahan: So what’s creed’s content?

Hotheaded abandoned child, didn’t like his million dollar comfortable life so he decided to quit and fighting

Justin: With all due respect, that’s a BS way to look at the story. He didn’t even know his dad.

Gbolahan: He's the son of creed

Chike: The bastard son of Creed.  Was in foster care before creed’s wife took him in. But he already had that notion that he was a bastard. He never met his father. . The emotional turmoil of not fitting-in. He fought to deal with his anger. Then ultimately, to prove he was the son of his father.

Gbolahan: Story!!!!!!!!

And how is that dope content abeg?

Chike: Rocky Balboa having to deal with cancer.. Creed's girlfriend trying to make as much noise as possible before she loses her hearing.. The movie was about loss and how to deal with it..

Gbolahan: So southpaw was not about loss?

Chike: And that is why it got oscar buzz while southpaw was panned by critics

Gbolahan: He lost his wife, lost his kid, lost all his money and title and fame

Justin: But who’s fault was that, Creed had life lessons, about believing in yourself and other side stories about dealing with hard times – yet apparently it lacks content

Chike: Southpaw was about loss the man brought everything on himself. . I didn't even feel anything watching that movie, I for slap Jake sef. He messed himself up. No one else did it to him

Gbolahan: So because he messed himself up is a stupid concept?

Chike: Minus Jake's acting, the movie is one of the biggest disappointments last year

Gbolahan: Sigh

Chike: Yes. .. you can't make a movie about loss and expect me as a viewer to have mercy on the guy when he was the one who imploded as a time bomb. No external forces led to it. Contented, cocky, rich, title-holder decides to wreck it all because he refused to use his head

Gbolahan: That happens to people all the time in life

Mike Tyson is a big example

Justin: Lol now we’re bringing in Mike Tyson.

I think his was more of funds mismanagement than losing it

Y’all are talking about SouthPaw ignoring Raging Bull – but go on.

Gbolahan: Wat u on about?

So if it was external forces then the movie would be good to u

Chike: It wasn't a good movie.. That’s all.. You don't make a movie about a cocky bastard.. there wasn't even any great turnaround sef...

Gbolahan: Lol

Pls where is the turn around in creed


Chike: Anyway I have said my own

Gbolahan: Creed just had better fight sequences that's all

Chike: We didn't need a turnaround in Creed cos he was already a deeply wounded character at the beginning

Gbolahan: I'm not even saying southpaw is better than creed

But creed ain't all that

Justin: I’m sorry could you repeat that again …because your exact words were“I would actually say southpaw is better

Creed lost me at content”

Chike: LOL Southpaw gave us a cocky guy at the beginning.. and he ended the movie, the same cocky guy.. lost everything, went sulking..decided to come back, trained and came back.. The end

Gbolahan: Undisputed is a better boxing movie

Chike: Raging Bull is a better boxing movie

Gbolahan: Yea

Now u talking

Snatch was a better boxing movie

Chike: Lol abeg I'm out

Gbolahan: Warrior is better

Chike: Snatch better than Creed. ..lol.. anyway I can see why someone will say that

Justin: Lol

Gbolahan: Forget say na 2000 movie

That was a mad movie

Mayowa: Bants!

Mayowa: Okay, so what are we reviewing? Justin our next post is due Tuesday?
