One True Ace Pairing: Captain America

I'm definitely not talking about the canon pairings of Steve Rogers with Peggy Carter or Sharon Carter. I am talking about Stucky. (And this is specific to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and spoiler warning through Phase 3.) In my One True Ace Pairing series, I've been basically covering pairings that I've liked who are not … Continue reading One True Ace Pairing: Captain America

When Aces Feel Like Aliens: The Case of Joss Whedon

I have a knee-jerk negative reaction to dating and “romantic” relationships. Something feels kind of dirty about them. Which is weird because deep down, I really do think I’m a romantic. I love stories of deep connection, effective partnership, people providing each other security and comfort, and above all, complete devotion. On some level, I … Continue reading When Aces Feel Like Aliens: The Case of Joss Whedon

One True Ace Pairing: The Imitation Game

I adored this non-couple couple. I'm wading into thorny territory here, so I will try to be careful. And I'll try to do it without any major spoilers for The Imitation Game, although I'd argue this isn't the kind of movie that can be spoiled with prior information. The relationship in question is the one … Continue reading One True Ace Pairing: The Imitation Game

Future Adaptations of Little Women

But it is romantic in a very particular way that – as far as I know – … Continue reading One True Ace Pairing: Toy Story 4

Beauty and the Beast Review (ish)

I thought the movie was good...and I don't have a whole lot more to say about it. But I do have thoughts on other issues surrounding the movie! First, I'll give my quick review. Not taking into account the 1991 original, I thought this was a really good adaptation of the Beauty and the Beast … Continue reading Beauty and the Beast Review (ish)

Let’s Talk about Yara

There was quite some scene there with Yara Greyjoy during S6E7. Of course the most important part of the speech was her conversation with Theon, her tough love and no-nonsense attitude that makes her awesome, but viewers did take note of the interaction right before that. Note on spoilers: There are no major spoilers here, … Continue reading Let’s Talk about Yara
