Billie Jean King Movie's Sin Of Omission + Robbie Rogers For Target + Students Riot Over Shooting Of Scout Schultz + Gay Muslim's Journey To Saudi Arabia + Cassidy Still Lying About Health Care — 6-PACK! Comments (0)

BjkTennis fan Kenneth Walsh turns in a much more nuanced review of Battle of the Sexes, the Billie Jean King/Bobby Riggs film I raved about this week. (He liked it a lot, too.)

Walsh examines the film's choice to leave out the part of King's affair with Marilyn Barnett where Barnett became a paraplegic while living in Mr. and Mrs. King's home and sued Billie Jean for palimony, effectively outing her in '81. (She would not acknowledge she is a lesbian until 1998.)

There is a lot to the story the film doesn't (can't? possibly shouldn't?) contain, but at the very least, an epilogue would've been appropriate. Keep reading for this and more of the hottest links of the day on...

Tennis, Everyone!: BATTLE OF THE SEXES Is The Feel-Gay Movie Of 2017 Comments (0)

Emma-stone-steve-carrell-battle-of-the-sexesI went to a screening of Battle of the Sexes — the story of Billie Jean King's herstoric tennis match vs. Bobby Riggs — thinking it would probably be tons of fun since King herself was supposed to be in attendance.

Alas, King wasn't able to make it (though the directors and some co-stars came), but the film was more than enough on its own, a crowd-pleasing, spirited retelling of the story of how a clownish, faded tennis star and one of the greatest female athletes of all time used a ridiculous event to further their own agendas ...

Good Rap: A Review Of PATTI CAKE$ Comments (0)

6a00d8341c2ca253ef01b7c915c8b5970b-150wiGeremy Jasper's Patti Cake$ — about a poor, overweight white girl pursuing her dream of being a legit rapper — is the feelgood movie of 2017 (so far), filled with clever and infectious music, an offbeat love story and some familiar-but-always-welcome components of classic loser-becomes-winner flicks.

Keep reading for my thoughts on this music-driven, beats-heavy take on the American dream ...
