Hello, My Name Is Doris

#HelloMyNameIsDoris: Delightful comedy that goes beyond its seemingly sketch-ish premise. Field is fantastic. Deft direction by Showalter.

Bill Walton & Dickie V Call the Cavs-Pacers Game

heav·en: #BillWalton & #DickieV extolling the (many) virtues of #LeBron (& #Korver?!) calling the #Cavs game! Most fun I've had all year! 😂

The Lego Batman Movie

#TheLegoBatmanMovie: Terrific fun! Somehow manages to make fun of & remind us why we love #Batman in the first place. Your move #Batfleck...

NFL HOF Voters As Bad As MLB

@jaydimes You're right. These guys's moral relativism is becoming worse than #BBWA. #Pudge gets into #MLB #HOF but not #BarryBonds/#Clemens.

Terrell Owens is Worthy of the HOF

@jaydimes In every universe known to man #TerrellOwens is a #HOF-er...even if he acted up. He lit it up in #SuperBowl ...with a broken foot!

Terrell Owens Doesn't Make It Into NFL HOF Again

Happy for #LaDainian,
#JasonTaylor & esp #TD for #NFL #HOF. But as much as I love his backstory #KurtWarner doesn't deserve it before #TO.

Split

#Split: Say what you will, Shyamalan knows how to elevate the heck out of a B-movie. McAvoy is mind-bending (um, *literally*?! Yikes!)!
