Being from Philly, I watched Rocky a lot. I mean, I watched it more than little kids watch you eat. He was left handed just as I am and he was a fighter; literally and figuratively. The one thing about being a big a Rocky fan as I was, is that it pained you deeply to see him take a beating or to lose. And in every Rocky movie he would take a beaten or lose. We hate seeing our heroes lose, but if you watched enough Rocky you always knew at some point they would cue the music and he would get back up and be victorious.There are life lessons to be learned in seeing our heroes take a beaten, and there is hope to believe they will get back up and be victorious.

Comedian, director and screen writer, Jordan Peele has just released his debut film Get Out to raving reviews. It is a 99% certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes which is no easy feat, Zach Snyder can attest to that. Get out is arguably the best horror thriller to come out within the last 10 years! The movie exposed social demons, a complying story and great comedic timing while managing to scare the heck out of us. Get out is a box office success with little known cast in a genre that has been horrific during a time where original films in Hollywood seem to be a tougher sell, Jordan Peele takes a stab at it and breaks through his comfort zone while doing so.

I watched Transformers the last knight, like a week ago, just to see Megaton. I thought it gets no more mega than that... And then comes Mega fest! No, none of the cars turned into giant fighting machines with the ability to talk, but there were some mega stars with a lot to say that was both more profound and even funnier than anything I seen in Transformers. But I am convinced lives were transformed!
