That made me think I wasn't really awake, but I don't remember anything else from the third. I believe there was another one after that, which I didn't see and I likely won't see this one.

    The first movie in the franchise was great, though. I still enjoy watching it.

    I'll be darned. There are five now? Last one I saw was #3. It was awful.

    Not much in this trailer except for gobs of CG eye candy, which leads me to believe this movie will not do the book justice.

    OK so in this Battle of the Sexes movie are they just going to completely ignore the likelihood that Bobby Riggs threw the match to pay off debts to the mob?

    There was an ESPN documentary that was very convincing to this argument. Riggs easily beat a much better female player in Margaret Court, became a heavy favorite against Billie Jean King, then clearly didn't even try.

    Not to sound like a Neanderthal Trump voter but it sounds like this movie just ignores what really happened.

    It just seems like a weird thing to memorialize in a movie. Wasn't Riggs twice her age and basically have issues gripping the racket at his age? I also heard the rules for King allowed for her to use more of the court, but maybe that was a different match.

    Needless to say, the Williams sisters got destroyed by some no name player a while back so I'm not sure trying to show men and women on equal footing when it comes to playing tennis is really the best argument.

    Heard lots of problems with this movie- even led by Spielberg.

    Also, Ready Player One is awesome but the second book stinks.

    Armada? It doesn't stink. It just feels like its too familiar to RPO, with some points taken from that 80s movie.

    I really want to see this, but I don't know when/if it's coming. His last release never hit Utah County. I still list PTA as my favorite director, though his last two were a little underwhelming. This one looks like he's back on point. IMDB of 8.9 and RT 91%. Sound like another great performance by Daniel Day Lewis.
