Creed Will Be Rocky for a New Generation

The series of Rocky movies have been a staple in American Pop Culture. From the iconic scene that has Sylvester Stallone running up the stairs to the way each movie got progressively more campy than the last and then the way it resurfaced with Rocky Balboa. But it's 2015, now and it looks like Creed, will help usher in a new generation of fans to the Rocky franchise as well as making a pop culture splash of it's own.
My favorite thing about this trailer -- and it seems like the movie as a whole, as well -- is that the focus is not put on the franchise at all. Rocky only shows up in the trailer towards the end and I'm hoping that the movie reflects this as well. By putting the emphasis on Adonis Creed (Apollo Creed's son played by Michael B. Jordan), the film lays the groundwork for a new story and a new character in an existing world. This helps to create a new audience while bringing back the old fans with a recognizable character in Rocky.
It's also really important to note that the film is written/directed by Ryan Coogler (who has worked with Michael B. Jordan before in Fruitvale Station). And even though the trailer is short -- and usually trailers don't showcase the cinematic prowess of a director -- there are still some aesthetically interesting shots throughout. Coogler succeeds at creating and delivering on certain emotions throughout the trailer and I hope the true is same for the film when it comes out.
Creed is slated to come out this Fall (IMDB shows November 25th, 2015 but since the date is so far away that could change to a earlier/later date).

this trailer is amazing. This could be one of the better movies to come this Winter. I like how they bought in the people who worked with Jordan on Fruitvale Station as well, which was an awesome movie starring Jordan
Woot woot another Rocky movie! :)

30 for 30: How Rocky Balboa Ended the Cold War
I don't think it's any surprise that I enjoy the Rocky movies. Sure the series kind of hit this weird place as it got more and more sequels but there was something really awesome about them anyway. They were bad but they were good at the same time and I don't really know how else to explain it than that. So when I came across CollegeHumor's parody 30 for 30 about Rocky vs. Ivan Drago, I couldn't resist and just had to watch it. I already knew I was going to enjoy it because the previous one they did with Angels in the Outfield was amazing. There's so much to love about this 30 for 30 and one of the main things that makes it so great is how they take the tone so seriously. Sure they're talking about a boxing movie but every one in the clip take it so seriously. And at times, you could probably take some of the interview clips out of context and confuse your friends by making them think that it's a real documentary. Although, there's one quote from the 30 for 30 that made me crack up so hard because he says it seriously even though it's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard: Just to give you an idea of how hard these guys were punching, sometimes the punch didn't even land but the head flew back anyway. Like from the air or something... This quote totally gets one of the reasons why some of the Rocky movies are so ridiculous. One of the reasons going back to these older movies is difficult is because a lot of the actual boxing scenes don't look believable. The way they miss punches in order to not really hurt each other is important but also very ridiculous when you see that they could've shot it a little better. I sincerely hope they do more of these 30 for 30s with other sports movies, so far they're knocking it out of the park (get it, get it? That's a sports thing).
Kate And Leo’s Friendship Of 23 Years is STRONG
Hollywood isn’t exactly known for its sentimentality – the ruthless nature of the film industry, along with the pressure of being in the public eye means that long-lasting friendships can be somewhat of a rarity. These two have bucked the trend, however, even with the added pressure of everyone willing their favorite on-screen couple to just do it already and get together romantically. “She’s such a terrific person in general that our chemistry naturally happened on screen. We just like each other as people,” -Leo The pair first met on the set of Titanic in 1996. Kate was 21 years old, with Leo just a year older. They portrayed such a perfect romance on-screen that the rumors about their relationship in real life inevitably began to flow. It never happened though, not officially at least! While receiving the award, she dedicated many kind words to Leo, who sat in the audience blowing kisses at her. “Leo, I’m so happy I can stand here and tell you how much I love you and how much I’ve loved you for 13 years…I love you with all my heart, I really do,” she said, with tears in her eyes. Meanwhile, Kate had previously chosen Leo to walk her down the aisle for her third marriage in 2012.  She has 2 children from these relationships and raising them was hard, given her tight work schedule. During these times, Leo even managed to help Kate with the children. Kate said, “I’m not going to tell you what we actually talk about, but yeah, we’re very, very close and sometimes we do quote the odd Titanic line back and forth to each other, because only we can, and we find it really funny.” May their beautiful friendship continue!!!
코로나19 때문에 떡상한 바이러스 재난 영화 5선
Editor Comment 개봉 당시엔 미래에 대한 경고였을 바이러스 재난 영화.국내 영화 <감기>와 더불어 해외 바이러스 재난 영화가 전 세계적으로 재조명되고 있다. 모두 영화보다 더 영화 같은 현실이 벌어지고 있는 지금을 예견하고 있기 때문이다. 이 영화들의 공통 관전 포인트는 눈으로 보이지 않는 바이러스를 극복해나가는 인간의 사실적인 모습들이다. <아이즈매거진>이 현 상황과 맞닿은 바이러스 재난 영화 5선을 준비해봤다. 현실과 비슷한 상황에 비춰 감탄하기보다는 영화가 인류에게 던지는 메시지에 집중해보며 감상해보길. 크레이지(The Crazies, 2010) 코로나19는 중국 우한의 바이러스 연구소에서 노출된 바이러스에 의해 감염이 시작되었다는 의혹이 있다. 아직 과학적으로 증명된 바는 없지만, 중국 연구소 직원들이 발표한 바이러스 유출 논문에 쓰여진 사례로 본다면 가능성이 농후한 일이기도 하다. 영화 <크레이지>는 인위적 실험과 관리 소홀로 인해 생긴 치명적 바이러스에 초점을 맞췄다. 감염 후 단 48시간 만에 미치게 이르게 되는 치명적 바이러스의 이름은 ‘트릭스’. 바이러스가 유출됐다는 사실을 알고 있던 정부는 군부대를 투입, 도시를 폐쇄하고 생존자를 전멸시키려 한다. 살인 광기에 휩싸인 생존자들과 도시를 전멸시키려는 정부를 상대로 필살적으로 탈출을 시도하는 주인공 데이빗과 그의 가족들. 반인륜적인 영화 속 정부의 결정이 과연 최선의 선택이었을지 생각하며 감상해보길 추천한다. 컨테이젼(Contagion, 2011) 코로나19로 인해 더욱 재조명되고 있는 영화, <컨테이젼>. 영화 같은 현실, 현실 같은 영화라 해도 과언이 아닐 정도로 전염병의 확산에 따른 인간의 공포와 사회적 혼란을 사실적으로 그려내 큰 공감을 불러일으키고 있다. 바이러스의 배경지는 홍콩. 미국인 베스는 홍콩 출장을 마치고 집으로 돌아가기 전, 공항 바에서 맥주 한 잔을 즐기면서 영화는 시작된다. 전염의 가장 직접적 경로인 손에 포커스를 맞춘 점과 영화 말미에 드러나는 바이러스의 경로가 박쥐의 변을 먹고 자란 돼지를 요리한 요리사로부터 시작되었다는 점이 코로나19 사태와 매우 닮아있다. 영화 속 명대사, “늑장 대응으로 사람들이 죽는 것보단 과잉 대응으로 비난받는 게 낫다고 생각합니다.”는 심각한 상황을 마주한 우리들에게 귀감이 될 만한 메시지를 주기도. 아웃브레이크(Outbreak, 1995) 1995년에 개봉된 ‘에볼라’ 바이러스를 다룬 영화, <아웃브레이크>. 1967년 아프리카 모타바 계곡 용병 캠프에 의문의 출혈열이 발생하고 수많은 용병이 죽는다. 미군은 용병들의 혈액만 채취한 뒤 폭탄을 투하해 그들을 몰살시킨다. 30년이 흘러 같은 지역에서 또다시 출혈열이 발생해 모두가 사망하고, 에볼라 바이러스가 숙주 원숭이를 통해 미국에 퍼지며 큰 위기에 빠지는 내용을 담고 있다. <아웃브레이크>는 전염병이 어떤 과정으로 발생, 확산되는지 조금 더 구체적이고 사실적이게 묘사됐다. 특히, 정부가 국민을 희생양으로 삼으려는 과정은 영화의 극적인 긴장감을 더해주는 관전 포인트. 나는 전설이다(I Am Legend, 2007) SF 소설계의 세기의 걸작으로 꼽히는 ‘리처드 매드슨’의 동명 베스트셀러를 원작으로 제작된 영화 <나는 전설이다>. 2012년, 인류의 멸망. 전 인류가 멸망한 가운데 과학자 로버트 네빌만이 살아남는다. 지난 3년간 그는 매일같이 또 다른 생존자를 찾기 위해 절박한 심정으로 방송을 송신한다. 그러나 그가 그토록 애타게 찾았던 생존자들은 더 이상 인간의 모습이 아니었다. 그들은 이상 바이러스에 감염되어 ‘변종 인류’로 변해 버린 것. 인류의 운명을 짊어진 네빌은 면역체를 가진 자신의 피를 이용해 백신을 만들어낼 방법을 알아내야만 하는 숙명을 짊어지게 되고 인류 최후의 전쟁을 치르게 된다. 놀랍게도 이 영화의 결말은 감독판과 극장판에 따라 두 가지로 나뉜다. 스포는 하지 않겠다. 시간적 여유가 된다면 두 결말의 차이점을 비교해 감상해보길. 캐리어스(Carriers, 2009) 정체불명의 바이러스로 오염된 세상. 호흡과 타액, 혈액으로 감염되는 치사율 100%의 바이러스가 삽시간에 퍼져 인류는 멸망 직전의 위기를 맞게 된다. 영화 <캐리어스> 속 주요 인물들은 바이러스를 피해 어렸을 적 부모님과 함께 즐거운 시간을 보냈던 해변가로 향하기로 하고, 살아남기 위해 규칙을 정한다. 이들이 자발적으로 정한 규칙은 바이러스에 걸린 사람은 돕지 않고, 함께 다니지 않는 것. 영화의 관전 포인트는 바로 이 부분이다. 인간이 극한의 상황에 치닫게 되면 생존본능에 충실한 생물체가 될 수밖에 없다는 현실적인 내용에 잠시 깊은 생각에 빠지게 만든다. 만약 당신이 영화 속 주인공이었다면 어떤 결정을 내렸을까? 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
Triathlon Wheels
Triathlon Wheels Wheels are an important piece of equipment on your bike along with tyres that aid in covering all the terrain that you decide to ride. A triathlon wheels bike is like a road bike but permits a very aerodynamic position. The triathlon bike is awfully specific and is versatile as can be used on all types of terrain. The choice of such a bike is based on leisure, regular or competition. Triathlon wheels bikes display design challenges but still look glamorous and stylish. This bike form 60% of the collection in a race. The bike has endurance, strength, and mental toughness. At present triathlon-specific bikes have endurance, strength, and mental toughness. It also has varying cockpit set-ups, different geometry, and advanced aerodynamics. These are in demand now. Triathletes are required to be comfortable for prolonged periods in an aerodynamic position. The difference between triathlon wheel bikes and road bikes is based on recruiting different muscle groups and supporting comfort without giving up performance. The choice of the frame In case you are a beginner pick a classic road bike. Its design frame makes it possible to possess an advanced position which is comfortable. The aluminium frame is the most common material on an entry-level to mid-range bikes. In case the biker uses carbon frame that will be more rigid and yield a good energy output. For more experienced competitors the choice is an aero road bike with very wide and profiled tubes on the frame. It enhances a very leaning forward position in increase aerodynamics. However, this bike will be heavier with reduced comfort compared to a road bike. The speed choice will depend on the time trial bike. It has a revealing geometry and good aerodynamics. It is a frame with more emphasised seat tube angle and low seat post and a hanger. The wind-cheating wheels reduce drag and help a cyclist ride faster. Disc brakes in triathlon bike Aerodynamics is the main constituent of triathlon bikes. Generally, triathlon courses are flat with very few hills. Reducing aerodynamic drag is of paramount importance to triathletes as it means reduced effort to sustain speed. · The aerodynamic drag is enhanced. · The weight is increased. · The braking performance is not increased. · The braking power is superb. · Easy to adjust and maintain. · The lifespan of the wheels is increased. · The stiffness is also increased. Due to the dangers presented by using a disc wheel on the road, front disc wheels are prohibited in road cycling and triathlon. Minimizing aerodynamic drag is of utmost importance to triathletes as it leads to the reduced effort required to sustain speed. The wheel and tire interface are one that wheel designers pay close attention to. Wider tires have been accepted to be better than narrower ones and the wheels are more aerodynamically optimized for wider tires. The rims are getting wider. Take care that aerodynamic gains may not offset the increase in rolling resistance or comfort from the smaller tire. Many of the road and triathlon wheel frames manufactured today have restrictions.
Trampoline High Weight Limit
1. Can you go over the weight limit on a trampoline? What Is the Weight Limit for a Trampoline? The very best outdoor trampoline for youngsters could state that it can sustain grownups, yet this might not hold true according to the specifications supplied by the manufacturer. Every trampoline supplies a maximum weight tolerance that can be safely supported. Although trampolines may not quickly break down if the released weight tolerance is surpassed by a user, it does raise the threat of a premature end of life circumstance for the item. (From iPlayTX) Trampoline High Weight Limit is important in that way. The weight restrictions for a trampoline are based upon the lots capability rating of the springtimes or the support poles that are utilized in the item's layout. Surpassing those weight restricts makes it possible for the trampoline to damage. A lot of exterior trampolines for youngsters are made to hold 200 extra pounds or less. Toddler trampolines might hold 50 extra pounds or less. You must see a brand-new line of indoor trampolines that are called "Parent/Child trampolines." A number of them support 150 extra pounds or less, which implies the grownup would often need to consider 120 extra pounds or less to use the item. At the same time, an adult-based exterior trampoline will generally support 400-750 pounds for a Trampoline High Weight Limit. If you place 3 adults onto the trampoline as well as the weight restriction is exceeded, then the same dangers of failing exist. The most effective trampoline evaluations should provide a peek at the weight resistance of the product. If not, ask the manufacturer for the weight tolerance prior to buying the product. If you position excessive weight onto the trampoline which is the cause of its failure, after that the guarantee could be void. 2. How much weight can a trampoline really hold to be a Trampoline High Weight Limit? The supplier normally suggests the weight restriction of a trampoline when you purchase it.

Keep in mind, that you do not use a trampoline like a bed; you jump on it, as well as it makes you jump high airborne. Trampoline High Weight Limit is provided, not just for safety but also for operational functions as well. The bouncing activity is what makes jumping on a trampoline worth your while. Weight plays a crucial factor in the plan of points since a trampoline has to have the ability to match the down pressure with the higher force, with springs meeting this function. 3. How much weight can a 10 ft trampoline hold? It's an usual inquiry of just how much weight can a 10ft trampoline hold because of the fact that it permits enough to fit miss too. However, the 10-foot trampoline weight restriction is just a little over the previous one, and that's around 175 added pounds. As a result, it's mainly suitable for younger kids. Trampoline High Weight Limit with 10ft could be a good choice! 4. What's the weight limit on a 15ft trampoline? The 15 feet trampoline weight restriction is in between 250-450 extra pounds. Those are bigger styles perfect for both grown-ups as well as children. Relying upon the kind, round along with rectangular shape 15-foot trampoline weight constraint are up to 250 pounds, as well as for fresh start is 450 pounds. Source: Trampoline High Weight Limit
