Cinema Cindy Reviews: Battle Of The Sexes

“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.

“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”.
