BATTLE OF THE SEXES (2017) Rated PG-13 Director: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris Starring: Emma Stone, Steve Carell Genre: Drama, comedy, sport 5-Second Summary: This is the story of the epic 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs that ultimately became known as the battle of the sexes. Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars This film is delightfully enjoyable. It's a great show of wills, passion, and charisma between our two leads. If you're familiar with Carell's work, then you probably know what to expect, but trust me, it's serious. He can't say or show it enough. He's a chauvinistic pig! We like him already, though, so it's hard not to find his version of Riggs charming and even likable. Now, Stone, on the other hand, she's inspiring. I can't say it enough. She's a trailblazer! The relationship that plays out between her and her hairdresser is one of the more subtly and beautifully captured romances that I've seen in a movie. It's less about the fact that it's two women--given that the film is about equal rights for all, namely women--and more about them as people. What they experienced was more human than any precondition a label might put on them. The fun starts when Billie Jean finally accepts Bobby's offer and it's an exciting piece of history to see dramatized by two people whom I look up to. The whole cast and crew is phenomenal. It's interesting to see how far we've come and how much the events of this story changed things, but it also puts into perspective how far we still have to go. Shining Star: I won't ignore Steve Carell, but Emma Stone was amazing. The year isn't up, so I won't discredit future roles, but I'm almost certain she's got my vote during award season. If you enjoyed Little Miss Sunshine, The Help, or Wimbledon, check out Battle of the Sexes!

You guys: last week, our 20 quart mixer stopped working. Two days later, in some sort of appliance solidarity, our 5 quart mixer stopped working. So even though I have always gone, I thought I was too exhausted to go to The @Hideoutchicago Block Party yesterday. If we had skipped it, tho, we would have missed the joyous @Danielson_Famile. And Steve Albini in a chef's coat, cooking and serving free hot dogs next to Doug Sohn. (Bfriend and I ate 5; let's just say I pulled my weight.) And Fred Armisen warming up the crowd with advice about saving your receipts. Thank you, Chicago, for doing things only you can do. #onlyinchicago #hid#hideoutkparty #hideout #fredarmisen #stevealbini #electricaudio #hotdougs #danielson #mixingbyhand

Everyone at work is like "wait, who did you see?" And I'm like "Fred Armisen! Kind of looks like me but a 50 year old man?" // @sordociego #doppelganger #fredarmisen

The lego ninjago movie I think, was pretty good. It has a generic plot that you've seen a 100 times, despite this it was very funny and enjoyable. It was nowhere close to the first lego movie, but I think it's one# par with the lego Batman movie. 7/10. We'll have you seen it? 馃憤馃徎馃憥馃徎#lego #ninjago #legoninjagomovie #legomovie #legobatman #davefranco #justintheroux #zachwood #michealpe帽a #jackiechan #fredarmisen #kumailnanjiani #abbijacobson
