Are you a good witch, or a bad witch? Or, more accurately, do you prefer a good witch or a bad witch? That's the question we're asking today on this very special Ladies of "Oz the Great and Powerful" edition of NextMovie's Eff, Marry, Kill.
It would appear that beauty and magic have a direct correlation because Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams, all certified Gorgeous Ladies, portray the three witches of Oz in the new flick, due in theaters March 8. Lovely though they all may be, there can only be one good witch — and only one you choose to bring home to Mom in a game of Eff, Marry, Kill, good witch or not so good.
So who will it be? Do you marry the lady who comes and goes by bubble? Have a soft spot for the witch in red? Are you enchanted by Oz's third witch? Be sure to vote in our poll and sound off in comments and on Twitter, and check out our esteemed FMKers' picks as well! Get More »
We don't know if you've heard, but something went down last night. Something happened in Hollywood, something the world saw and won't stop talking about.
Yeah, we're talking about
Jennifer Lawrence falling down the 2013 Oscars. (Well, and J-Law's tumble, but we'll get to that.)
Since this is NextMovie and we're not really the type to come at things head-on, we knew that we wanted to recap the Oscars, but how? The only way we know: With a game of Eff, Marry, Kill.
This isn't a hot-or-not, more of a thoughful, mature look at the night that was. (Cough.) Our trusty FMKers ranked the three surprises from the night that shocked us most — Ang Lee's win for Best Director in a wide-open field, "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Skyfall" tying for Best Sound Editing, and, of course, Jennifer Lawrence falling ass-over-Dior on her way up to accept her Best Actress statue — and DTR. What shocks can we live with? What do we sneaky love? What gets the knife?

If we're all being honest with ourselves, pretty much everyone has dreamed of being the first lady. They say that power is the ultimate aphrodisiac, and what station is more powerful than president of the United States?
With that in mind this Presidents Day, cue "Hail to the Chief," because not only are we giving you venue to picture yourself as the first lady, we're taking it one step further: Why settle for marrying a president when you could also eff and kill two others? U-S-A! U-S-A!
Since we're pretty sure it's a federal crime just to mention the k-word in the same sentence as the word "president" (let's hope the Secret Service are movie fans as well), we've turned to film for this especially patriotic installment of NextMovie's Eff, Marry, Kill. We turned to our friendliest of friends at Hollywood Crush and Yahoo! Entertainment, as well as you, friendly reader, to take stock of our cinematic Commanders-in-Chief. Presenting the presidential contenders: Dave Kovic from "Dave," Andrew Shepherd from "The American President" and, well, Honest Abe himself as portrayed in "Lincoln." Check out our panel's picks below, and be sure to cast your vote in our poll below and explain yourself in the comments. Don't forget to grab two forms of FMK ID before you head off the to the polls!

It's time to face reality: It's Nicholas Sparks' world. We just live in it.
Really, the prolific romance author plays us like goddamn puppets. The author has seen eight of his novels adapted for the screen, to stunningly successful results. "The Notebook" makes our romantic lives pale in comparison, and the devotion between Mandy Moore and Shane West in "A Walk to Remember" is swoon-worthy. Let's not even get started on "Dear John" — it's enough to make a girl want to invest in personalized stationery.
Since there's not even a point to these movies other than romance, let's get to business: Which of these gentlemanly characters would we most like to take home to our dewy-eyed mothers, which would we hit and quit, and which would we just, well...hit? Yes, it's time for Eff, Marry, Kill: Nicholas Sparks Edition. Get More »
One of the (many) taglines for the upcoming zom-rom-com (that would be the new genre of zombie rom-coms that we hope is just beginning) "Warm Bodies" is "Cold Body, Warm Heart." That's exactly how we tried to approach this edition of Eff, Marry, Kill: Just as the human Julie (Teresa Palmer) learns to look past the grey-skinned zombie facade of R (Nicholas Hoult), we (our expert panel of Effemkayers) must learn to look beyond that handsome genetic Franco facade and ask ourselves the important questions: Who is he really? Does he had a warm heart? Is he kind?
Do we want to eff him?
We invite you to ask these same questions alongside us in this very special "Warm Bodies" edition of Eff, Marry, Kill, pitting Nicholas Hoult, Dave Franco and John Malkovich against one another for a place in our hearts, a place in our beds, and a place at the bottom of a cliff.
Onwards and effwards! Get More »
There comes a time in every girl's life when she must decide which hard-bitten-yet-handsome gentleman from an upcoming cop drama she'd most like to take home to Mom and Dad. (Isn't there?) Now that the Jan. 11 release date of "Gangster Squad" is upon us, it's time to make the call: Is it Nick Nolte who will wait for you at the end of the
perp walk aisle? Josh Brolin whose detective skills will equip him for a very, ahem, intimate inspection? Ryan Gosling who will meet a noir-style, gritty end at the barrel of a gun? (Or at the bottom of a long drop, not that we've thought about it too much.)
Choosing between opening presents on Christmas Eve or opening them on Christmas morning may seem like a difficult call, but you haven't seen anything yet. Try deciding whether to have a one-night stand with Anne Hathaway or Amanda Seyfried.
Welcome to our "Les Misérables" edition of Eff, Marry, Kill.
This game goes exactly how you think it does. We want you to determine which actress — Hathaway, Seyfried or newcomer Samantha Barks — you'd like to spend the rest of your days with, whose days you'd like to end for good and which one you'd enjoy (or suffer through, as the case may be) spending one single night with.
Because such decisions are so difficult, we've asked a few of our buds to weigh in. Hit the poll below and hear thoughts from our experts underneath. And don't forget to give us your thoughts in the comments!

I can't imagine there's a single warm-blooded heterosexual male who saw "The Dark Knight Rises" and didn't fantasize about a one-night stand with Selina Kyle, so my answer in the Eff category should be pretty clear. Which leaves marriage or death for poor Samantha and Amanda … cruel fates for either one, to be sure. I suppose I would elope with Ms. Barks, since she's O.G. "Les Miz" and I assume that means she'd tolerate my late-night renditions of "Javert's Suicide." Sorry, Seyfried, but this is one confrontation you won't survive.
Eff: Anne Hathaway
Marry: Samantha Barks
Kill: Amanda Seyfried

The lady I'd make sweet loving' to? Amanda Seyfried. I mean have you seen her work in "Chloe" and "Jennifer's Body"? She's a very sensual little minx! Now then, when you're talking wifey material, I'd take the amazing Anne Hathaway. She's massive amounts of talented, and she seems genuinely kind as well. Plus, she's had awful boyfriends in the past, so my efforts to spoil her wouldn't be taken for granted. Finally, I hate to be the one doling out death, but Samantha Barks would have to go. She seems like a great kid, but I don't think I could date a 22-year-old at this point in my life. Sadly, there's only room for one "barks" in my house, and that's when my dog Bugsy suspects an intruder.
Eff: Amanda Seyfried
Marry: Anne Hathaway
Kill: Samantha Barks

Amanda Seyfried's never done much for me, and did make me regret existing for 108 minutes during "Mamma Mia!," so she's gotta go. Don't know much about Samantha Barks, except that I wouldn't kick her out of bed. And love love Anne Hathaway, even though I'm not digging on the pixie-style cut she's been rocking lately (has it really not grown back since those bastards shaved it?). But I'm confident we could make the type of compromises a marriage needs to work, especially if one of those compromises involves her Selina Kyle costume from "Dark Knight Rises."
Eff: Samantha Barks
