His best movies and shows
Film and TV fans were surprised today by the news that Carl Weathers, best known as Apollo Creed in the Rocky franchise, but an enduring presence in film and television for nearly 50 years, has died. He was only 76 years old. (In a statement, Weathers’ family said he died peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, February 1, 2024″ but gave no further details.)
I guess Carl Weathers fans are going to want to remember this weekend by watching one of his best performances. There are certainly several to choose from. Weathers left his mark on films and TV in a wide range of genres from action to comedy to science fiction.
Below, I’ve compiled a list of his most memorable screen work, although he had many more films that you may want to check out. (Force 10 From Navarone, anyone?) And here’s some food for you: Meanwhile Rocky it is, in my opinion, the best without a doubt Rocky movie, is it also the Rocky film with the best performance by Carl Weathers?
I’m not so sure. In fact, I’m pretty sure not. The weather gradually got better as Apollo Creed as the franchise progressed; it’s better inside Rocky II than in Rockyand it could be better inside Rocky III than in Rocky II. in terms of Rocky IV, I don’t think I’m ready to review that one right now. It would be too painful.
