Cinema Cindy Reviews: Battle Of The Sexes

Los Alamos

“Battle of the Sexes” was released at the end of September, but only recently came to our local theater, thus this late review… The film tells the story of the public battle for equal pay and recognition for female athletes, championed by tennis great Billie Jean King, and culminating in what was deemed “the Battle of the Sexes”, the September 1973 tennis match between the 29 year old women’s tennis great King and the 55-year-old former men’s champ, Bobby Riggs.

Significant steps along the way are covered in the film, but not in much detail.

Cinema Cindy Reviews Thor: Ragnarok

on November 8, 2017 - 7:29am
Los Alamos
“Thor: Ragnarok” is the third Marvel Comics movie to come out in recent years featuring Thor, the Norse god of thunder. Throughout the series Thor is played by the studly Aussie actor, Chris Hemsworth, who truly is “easy on the eyes”.
All three Thor films depend on Marvel plotlines and Norse characters, but these lines do get blurred. So don’t expect the plot to make perfect sense; instead, you may find that the film will delight, surprise and entertain you if you don’t take it too seriously.
Working alongside Thor (most of the time) in this film
