It’s September Slash

Slash has come back into my life in a big way lately. Not only have Carolina and I played the card game a few times recently, we have been crushing hardcore over Stucky (Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes). It’s September now and slash is an s word so hey alliteration for the win. I present to you my five favorite slash pairings (some canon included).  Read More It’s September Slash

Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

It is a peak time to be a Marvel fan right now. Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming close to finally opening. Agent Carter was an awesome miniseries, and Daredevil is blowing up social media. I figured I would countdown all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe properties, including both the television and movie properties. However, this list only includes the actual MCU, not just Marvel characters or teams, which means no X-Men or Spiderman.  Read More Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×03, “Time and Tide”

Continuing the fast pace of last week’s two-hour premiere, Agent Carter continues to kick ass, take names, and look fucking gorgeous. Read More New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×03, “Time and Tide”

New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×01, “Pilot” and 1×02, “Bridge and Tunnel”

HOLY.CRAP. Agent Carter is amazing. In some ways, it’s exactly the feminist Marvel story we’ve been craving. Firstly, Peggy actually talks to women about things other than boys. I realize this is a low bar to set, but there’s also a lot of her showing up the men by kicking more butt than any of them.  Read More New Show Recap: Agent Carter 1×01, “Pilot” and 1×02, “Bridge and Tunnel”

This Week in Misogyny Has a Black Belt in Gender Judo

Oh, what a shock, Congress is being useless once again when it comes to securing rights for women. And let’s all direct our middle fingers in the general direction of the Women Against Feminism Tumblr. Sigh. At least Thor’s a lady now? I’ll take whatever good news I can get. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.) Read More This Week in Misogyny Has a Black Belt in Gender Judo

5 Films I’m Here for in 2014

I love watching movies in the theater. I’m totally that person that will attend a film by myself just so I can experience the joy of watching a movie on the big screen. My family knows my love of moviegoing, and each year for Christmas I get a gift card good enough for a few matinees. Here’s what I’m dropping those gift dollars down on this year: Read More 5 Films I’m Here for in 2014

Fallaces Sunt Rerum Species: A Non-Fangirl’s Guide To The Women Of “The Avengers”

I never read comic books as a kid, and up until December, the only Avengers I had ever heard of were John Steed and Mrs. Peel. Last July, though, Mr. Brum dragged me to go see Captain America… and now I’m kind of hooked. A lot of that hooked-ness had to do with Agent Peggy Carter and how badass she was (more on that later). Now that the super-charged Avengers Assemble is on its way to theatres this week, my college decided to show all five pre-films back to back, last Sunday. I watched all of them. It was awesome.  Read More Fallaces Sunt Rerum Species: A Non-Fangirl’s Guide To The Women Of “The Avengers”
