Staying “At Home” Forever: 12 TV Shows and Movies to Watch If You’re Going into Downton Abbey Withdrawals

It's summer and time to start binge-watching period dramas! With so many online options, there’s no shortage of old-fashioned romance to help you escape for a few hours (or days). Here’s my compilation of shows to watch this summer (and yes, I am planning on re-watching all of them!) if you miss Downton Abbey.  A few disclaimers: I’m an Anglophile through and through, so my list is strictly British dramas. I’m also a huge fan of the Early Modern period, the long 18th, and the 19th centuries and I tend to lean more towards period pieces that focus on those particular eras. Third, this is by no means an exhaustive list and some of them might not be as closely related to Downton, but they are all romantic and worth the watch!

[Get ready to binge watch!]

My family wants dinner? Too bad. We're ordering pizza tonight because I. CANNOT. PUT. THIS. BOOK. DOWN.”

Passengers and the Questionable Promise of Sci-Fi Romance Films

An out of this world romance...

On December 21, 2016, Sony Pictures Entertainment will release a film called Passengers starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. The film was conceived of and written by Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts. Morten Tyldum is the director.

The media has been describing this film as a sci-fi romance. Here’s the premise:

“A spacecraft traveling to a distant colony planet and transporting thousands of people has a malfunction in one of its sleep chambers. As a result, a single passenger is awakened 60 years early. Faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, he eventually decides to wake up a second passenger.”

Interestingly, Passengers has been garnering positive buzz:

“Earlier this week, Den of Geek was invited to see a presentation of footage from Sony Pictures and its subsidiaries’ upcoming film slate, and while there were a lot of early trailers and footage of lots of cool genre movies they have slated, the standout was clearly the first footage from Passengers, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.

Directed by Morten Tyldum, the Norwegian filmmaker whose previous movie The Imitation Game got him nominated for an Oscar, it looks like a fantastic science fiction film in the vein of The Martian and the original Alien, although it offers a romantic angle that those films did not have.”

-(Via Den of Geek!)

The Book Was Better: Romance Novels vs. Screen Adaptation Battle Royale!

The epic battle of book vs screen has been raginging since the beginning of time. Okay, that's an overstatement, but for decades at this point, we have seen our favorite books and series adapted for the screen. Many times we have been failed by adaptors simply because books allow us more detail, more time in the “head” of the characters, but sometimes, the movie outshines the book, or does something for us that the book wasn't able to do. So today, we enter the Book Battle Royale—and we need your vote—to finally put to rest the age old question: Was the Movie Better Than the Book? 

I've put together my opinions on the topic, but it'll be up to you to decide and send us your vote!

Necessary spoiler tag is necessary: Before you dive into the voting process, be warned that spoilers will be mentioned for each book and movie!

Go check out the cover and look for the book, which Cole suggests may be “the most spine-tingling and sensual AC story yet,” on August 15. If you haven't taken the plunge yet, I'll just say the series is one of those that puts the “adult” in Young Adult.

Laurelin Paige and Kayti McGee's Screwmates sure is an attention-getter! See the cover and get an idea of the story behind the bold title over at GoodReads. The roommates-to-lovers/sex-lessons contemporary will be out October 24. You may have read these two before as Laurelin McGee.

Why Do We Love Beauty and the Beast Tales So Much?

I've always thought, at its core, that the reason I loved the Beauty and the Beast story so much was that Belle is essentially the Patron Saint of Readers (unofficially... I'm sure there's actually patron saints and dieties of readers). However, I think the love of the tale goes deeper than that—it's the same reason we love the reformed rake, the alpha-who-only-has-eyes-for-you, and so on and so forth. It proves that love transforms all—but also that love makes us want to change for ourselves too. 

What do you think it is about the Beauty and the Beast tale that has appealed to so many of us? Let me know in the comments!

Friday Beefcake: Omar Sy

This week I finally got around to watching Jurassic World. It was everything I hoped it would be—mindless action with hot Chris Pratt and cathartic closure on my childhood fear of Velociraptors. However, there is one unsung hero of the film franchise and that is Omar Sy, assistant raptor trainer to Pratt's Owen. I kept finding myself wanting more scenes with him, triple checking Jurassic-wiki to make sure his character didn't die, and rewinding when I realized I missed one of his few lines. Sure, Chris Pratt was hot, and I shipped the crap out of him and the stuffy Claire, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, but my eye found Omar Sy in every scene. 

So, here is my ode to my latest crush—I will be checking out his backlist, though most of it is French (I say that like it's a bad thing).

Captain America vs. Iron Man: Which Side Are You On? Part 1 of 2

Captain American #Team Cap vs Iron Man #TeamIronMan in Civil War

Team H&H is having its own Civil War among our bloggers as two of our most die-hard superhero fans, Pen Singleton and Sahara Hoshi, take a side in Captain America: Civil War. Today they're offering up their opening arguments for each side, but come back on Sunday as they detail what their side winning or losing could mean for the ships we've come to love in the Marvel Universe. 

We are about a week away from Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and I (Pen Singleton) could not be more ready!  In case you haven’t seen any of my other Marvel posts, here’s a quick rundown of my credentials.  I have a tendency to obsess and it comes into play very strongly with the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  I have seen most of the movies multiple times in the theater.  And, when I say multiple, I don’t mean two or three.  I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the theater ten times. And, thus far, I’ve seen The Avengers in the theater twenty times. And I say “thus far” because I already have my ticket for the Ultimate Captain America Marathon on May 5, the day before the release of Captain America: Civil War.  I will be in the movie theater at 8am to watch a 15 hour marathon consisting of both previous Captain American movies and both Avengers movies before the premiere of Captain America: Civil War. So, I know a bit about these movies and have extremely strong feelings about the battle at the heart of the new movie that will pit all of the Marvel heroes we’ve seen in movies since 2008’s Iron Man against one another: Team Iron Man vs Team Captain America.

Which Star Wars: The Force Awakens Couple is Your OTP?

via kumanekopandachu

Yes, yes, we all want to know who Rey's parents really are but the REAL debate we've all been having is about who will get paired off with whom. 

So far cases have been made for Rey and Kylo Ren (will they/won't they (be cousins)), Rey and Finn, Finn and Poe, and the Light trifecta, Finn/Rey/Poe (ain't never gonna happen, but a girl can dream). 

Here's the case for each:

Kylo Ren/Rey (Reylo):

Why they should get together:

They're opposites attract, what's better than that?! This is the chance to rewrite the wrongs of Padme and Anakin (on so many levels) and join the dark and light together! You just know Ren is intrigued by Rey's strength and Rey... currently hates Kylo Ren, but they can come back from that! Ok... maybe they can't, but he's so misunderstood and... and... 

Why they should NOT get together:

They're maybe, possibly, probably, potentially... cousins.
