Saw Creed last weekend. Still not over it. Here’s one reason why. Michael B. Jordan: An Adonis To Be Thankful For Over the weekend, I saw Creed, the Rocky spin-off movie. If you know me, this may be a somewhat surprising choice for holiday weekend viewing because I usually don’t put sports movies on the top of my list. However, if you do know me, you know I’m a fan of Michael B. Jordan and HBMs in general. On top of that, I kept hearing nothing but good things about Creed, so I caved and went to see it. And let me tell you  – I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. It’s just that good. For Creed, MBJ clearly had to get into a boxer’s shape.

I had a Taco Bell, my first taste of American fast-food, and it was great! We then went on a drive around all the massive Beverly Hills mansions. We saw the Playboy mansion, and whilst we were there a UPS van pulled up, so we got to see the gates opening up. None of us went inside though, in case we were ambushed by security! The Playboy Mansion Beverly Hills Next stop was Rodeo Drive and all the expensive designer stores. The grand looking building reminded me a bit of Diagon Alley in Harry Potter.
