"Creep" director adapting suspense novel "The Wild" For HBO Max



Patrick Brice, the filmmaker behind the Creep franchise and director of HBO's Room 104 is adapting Owen Laukkanen's suspense novel The Wild for HBO Max and Warner Max.

Laukkanen is the author of several thriller novels including the Stevens & Windermere series (starting with The Professionals), Deception Cove, and the upcoming Lone Jack Trail. The Wild will be released by Penguin Random House in 2021.

This is the plot description:
Dawn isn’t a bad person–she’s just made some bad choices: wrong guy, wrong friends, wrong everything. But she wasn’t expecting her parents to pay a boatload of money to ship her off to OUT OF THE WILD, a wilderness boot camp with a bunch of other messed up kids to learn important “life lessons.” It’s true that Dawn and the other cubs will learn a lot–but it’s not what any of them expect. Because what happens in the woods isn’t what their parents planned. Sometimes plans go very wrong. And this is one of those times. Suddenly Dawn is more scared than she’s ever been in her life. And you will be too.

ONTD Original: Music Review... Taylor Swift: 'folklore'

Taylor Swift dropped a new album on Thursday, July 23, 2020 and I decided to write a review, tackling each song. I listened to the whole album first without lyrics and then with, and I listened to each song at least four times. I didn't read any other reviews (other than a few comments on ONTD, lol!) or backstories--unless otherwise noted--because I wanted to go into this with an unbiased opinion. Because I am wordy, I added a TLDR version after most track reviews.

UPDATE: So, I have been listening to this album A LOT since I first wrote this and my opinion has changed on a few of the tracks. I've updated a few of the reviews as you'll see below. I decided to provide the update since I'm posting my Taylor Swift Album Rankings and am linking to this post. Enjoy!

ontd original: You Pick...The Best Show From the 90s


So I've been watching a lot of "Living Single" for the first time. It's pretty funny. then I thought, wait, what do people consider the best 90s sitcom?
Knowing the world we live in, probably "Friends" 👎🏾. But I decided to take it to the people instead.

This is the nomination post.

What is the best show that started in the 90s?
Jan. 1st 1990 -  Dec. 31st, 1999?


Rules:


  1. It has to have started in the 90s. If it ended in 2005, cool, as long as it started in 1994!

  2. Make a parent comment, and people will +1 or react positively to it. I know some people can't see reactions, so responding is fine.

  3. There will be a top 8. That voting will start on Wednesday, July 29th (which is when this post will be closed @ Roundup time).

  4. Then the top 4 will duke it out Saturday, August 1st.

  5. The Winners will be announced probably Tuesday, August 4th.

  6. You can pick whatever, be it "Hanging With Mr. Cooper" to "Gargoyles". No genre is off limits, though if you're picking something that didn't have worldwide or at least American distribution, it may not reach the voting stage.

Thanks MODS for everything you do, but ESPECIALLYhjalmartazar, for being so supportive & helpful with these post uploads every week!

What have you guys been watching this week? I watched The Assistant on HULU, starring OZARK's Julia Garner. It was a very slow burn but a good watch. Matthew MacFadyen's one scene was a gut punch. We finally got around to watching the new PSYCH movie, Psych 2: Lassie Come Home - in the words of my husband "I don't remember Psych being THIS weird...". That foot rub scene ALONE. We're also watching Sucker Punch on Netflix to listen to the newly rereleased WHM commentary track on their Patreon. The movie is still trash, but since Andrew has never seen it, his real time reactions alongside the rest of the guys are amazing to hear.
