    Review: “Battle of the Sexes,” Or Trump vs. Hillary on a Tennis Court

    By Kyle | September 19, 2017

    Unprepared male chauvinist goes up against hyper-prepared feminist icon….It was 1973, and a 55-year-old clubhouse hustler named Bobby Riggs took on the greatest female tennis player of the moment. The movie has the wrong hero. More here.

    “Gone with the Wind” May Be Doomed

    By Kyle | August 30, 2017
