Creed II

In what amounts to a spiritual sequel to "Rocky IV," the sons of the two boxers who battled in one of the most tragic events of the "Rocky" series take each other on. Michael B. Jordan plays Adonis Creed, and Sylvester Stallone reprises his iconic role as Rocky, the former champ who reluctantly trains him for the match of his life. The film elegantly blends emotional moments with invigorating training and fight sequences. For my full review, click here. Extras include a slew of making-of featurettes, deleted scenes and a retrospective of the "Rocky films.

Fear the Walking Dead: Season 4

The spinoff of one of TV's most popular shows continues to thrive in its own right, and the latest season melds both of the worlds in something of a crossover that had fans salivating. The undead makeup and battles continue to impress, and a capable cast -- led by Alycia Debnam-Carey, Kim Dickens and Frank Dillane -- continues to carve out stark characterizations. Extras include audio commentaries on a few episodes.
