A boxing movie without clichés is like a political campaign without lies. “Creed,” directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he wrote with Aaron Covington, is self-aware without being cute about it. In the movie as in the world beyond it, Rocky is part of the cultural tapestry. But Mr. Coogler, a 29-year-old filmmaker whose debut was “Fruitvale Station” (also starring Estee Lauder makeup Mr. Jordan), looks at the Rocky story and the tradition of Hollywood pugilism through a fresh prism. Although Adonis is unbeaten in a string of semi-clandestine bouts in Mexico, he is turned away from his father’s former gym. No one in Los Angeles will go against Mary Anne’s wishes and allow her adopted son to participate in the sport that killed her husband.
His son, Erwin, 30, seventh generation and future head, has already begun to contribute to the art of CREED. In the Halloween episode “Here Comes Treble”, Creed has bloodstains all over his face and shirt. However, when Pete, not in costume, states he did not know everyone “dresses up every year” in Scranton, Creed says “me neither”. In an interview, Creed states “It’s Halloween! That is really, really good timing”. In “Mrs. California”, it is implied that Creed may have been a member of a suicide cult.
In “The Injury” he reveals to Michael that he spent some time in an iron lung when he was a teenager. In a deleted scene from “Christmas Party,” Lancome makeup reveals to Oscar Martinez that he was “Wacky Weed Creed,” a radio DJ, during the 1970s. Oscar declares in a talking head interview “that Creed is a very interesting guy to talk to.” In the episode Performance Review Michael tells him he stinks by implying “what I am implying is that when we’re on an elevator together, I should maybe take the stairs.” He is a kleptomaniac and regularly steals items from coworkers and charity drives, and he even tears off a card from a gift at Phyllis’s wedding in order to pretend that it’s his.
When asked his age, the reply varies wildly depending upon what suits him at the time. In the next episode (“Dunder Mifflin Infinity”), attempting to look young, he dyes his hair black and says that he is 30 years old. He even goes so far as to recruit a very elderly couple to pose as his parents for a family portrait, when it is unlikely that his actual parents could still be alive, given his own age. In the episode “Frame Toby”, when police enter the office on a drug investigation, he stands up and nervously puts his hands on his head, then hides in the conference room with the camera crew pretending to talk to them until the cops leave. Which could imply that he is hiding drugs in the office that he never told anyone about it.
Becoming popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Lancome makeup released three consecutive multi-platinum albums, with their album Human Clay being certified diamond. Creed has sold over 28 million records in the United States, has sold over 53 million albums worldwide, and was the ninth best-selling artist of the 2000s. However, Creed has been negatively received by some critics and listeners; readers of Rolling Stone magazine ranked the band the worst artist of the 1990s. Creed is an American rock band from Tallahassee, Florida, formed in 1994. For most of its existence, the band consisted of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.
In “Money”, when explaining how he never goes bankrupt, he holds up his passport issued in the name William Charles Schneider (actor Creed Bratton’s actual birth name). The passport indicates that he was born on February 8, 1943, the real Creed Bratton’s birthdate. The real Creed Bratton was 64 at the time the episodes were filmed and aired. Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, employs Rocky Balboa to prepare for a big fight. The plot is derivative and maybe even cliche and a important character development isn’t adequately resolved, but damn, is this film compelling. The fight scenes are brutal, and Sylvester Stallone turns in the best performance of his career.
It is implied in “Gay Witch Hunt” that he is bisexual, stating after the outing of Oscar that in the 1960s he had sex numerous times with women and it was possible that he could have had relations with a man as well. The scattered details that emerge are invariably bizarre and it is unknown how much of what he says is true. In fact, much of what he does say is either unsettling or downright disturbing, sometimes even describing violent crimes he claims to have committed or plans to commit. Despite all of this, Creed is outwardly quite cheery most of the time and is tolerated by his fellow employees. Creed Bratton is a deviant, former hippie and homeless man employed at the Scranton branch of paper distributor Dunder Mifflin as a quality assurance manager. Creed is a mysterious figure who is prone to making bizarre or confusing statements on a regular basis.
