Marry, Boff, Kill: The Boys of Civil War (Ellen’s Answers)

Last week, Whitney challenged me to a round of our favorite game and yours, Marry, Boff, Kill, with this round focusing on the supporting cast of Captain America: Civil War.  Whitney is notorious for always getting this wrong, so let’s delve into the CORRECT answers.

Marry Falcon

Of course you marry Sam Wilson.  The guy is quick with the one-liners, he’s an American hero who served this country with honor, and I reckon he is always willing to bust out the wings for a quick trip to the grocery store when I forgot milk.  What more could a girl ask for?

Boff Black Panther

Black Panther is the obvious choice here because he is the only one who is a guaranteed animal in the sack.  ‘Nuff said.

Kill Bucky Barnes

…Even though just the thought of it kills me.  He’s just far too brooding and complicated for this carefree, easygoing gal.  Also,  after the revelations in Civil War I think that it is safe to say that Buck is dealing with emotional baggage that he would rather forget.  I’m considering this a merciful killing.  Say hi to Peggy for me.

Run-On Sentence Review: Love & Friendship

I believe that at this point it is just general knowledge that I love Jane Austen, I’m pretty sure that is something that I have made pretty clear at this point in our relationship as reader and writer, so you can take this review with a grain of salt, but Love & Friendship is frothy, fun, biting, beautiful, and hilarious all rolled into one pretty perfect movie, but this is what I would expect from an honest adaptation of Austen’s Lady Susan as adapted and directed by Whit Stillman who perfectly captures Austen’s more shrewd outlook on her society and Kate Beckinsale delivers as the calculating Lady Susan, giving us a complex woman who you will both root for and against, but ultimately love as she tries to negotiate successful marriages for both herself and her daughter, and as with any Austen tale, the supporting cast of dandies and flibberty-gibbets shine and really capture Austen’s (in my opinion, underrated) humor.

Verdict: OhMyGoshGoSeeItNow.  Especially if you are a fan of either Austen or comedies of manners.

Web Bytes: Rogue One Trailer

Check out the amazing trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story down below and if you have time read some of the utterly laughable comments from whiny white boys about how there is going to be another female led Star Wars movie. As if you guys haven’t dominated enough movies for 127 lifetimes. And I resent the argument that some of them make about how these movies are just Twilight movies now. A female led fantasy/sci-fi does not immediately devolve into that. Geez! I just can’t.

The Fangirly Show: Episode # 9 Fangirling Over Period Dramas

Whitney and Ellen gab about their favorite period dramas (and boy, do they have opinions on those). Plus, the stirring conclusion to their Oscars pool in which Whitney has to try and struggle through a dramatic reading of horrible fanfiction featuring multiple Batmans (Batmen?) and a buff Mickey Mouse. You have to hear it to believe it.

Web Bytes: Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday Trailer

If you caught our last podcast, you may remember that Pee-Wee is much beloved in our family.  Speaking for my own nuclear family, we just flat out love Pee-Wee.  My brother and I would wake up early to eat cereal and watch reruns of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, it is mandatory every year that we watch  the Pee-Wee’s Playhouse Christmas special (because it is amazing), and Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure  is a family classic that is oft-quoted (“Paging Mr. Herman.”).

This new trailer doesn’t completely have me sold, but if Netflix is giving Reubens and Co. the creative liberties to rekindle the comedic sensibilities of the Pee-Wee of yore, sign me up.
