ONTD ORIGINAL: 8 "underrated" rom-com films that I really like (don't judge me)

Some of my favorite "underrated" rom-com-ish films, i'm not saying these films are like unheard of or anything like that, also when I say rom-com I just mean film that or both labeled as romance and comedy not that they are like chic flick rom-com, some are chick flick but some are just dark-comedy romance films if that makes sense??



Heartbeats (2010)



About: Francis and Marie have it all - youth, good looks, and a best friendship that is indestructible. That is, until the night they both meet a beautiful young man named Nicolas at a dinner party, and instantly fall for him. A casual crush turns into an emotional obsession for them both, and as they pursue him with dinners, parties, and trips to the countryside, their friendship falls apart.

'What If...?' delivers an AMAZING second episode with T'Challa as Starlord.



So... What happened in the episode?

[Spoiler (click to open)]- T'Challa was kidnapped by Yondu when he was a kid, but unlike Peter Quill he turned the Ravagers into heroes. The Ravagers now include Korath, Kraglin, Taserface and THANOS! Who T'Challa convinced not to kill half the world.
- They briefly meet Drax, who's now a bartender and lives with his wife and daughter (who Thanos never killed).
- They meet Nebula (with hair!) who has a mission for them: Break into The Collector's planet and steal the Embers of Genesis. T'chala sets Howard the Duck free to help him out.
- For a moment Nebula seems to betray them, but it was all part of the plan. T'Challa finds a Wakandan ship in the collection and sees a message from his dad.
- The mission goes south and the Ravagers fight the Black Order. Proxima Midnight faces most of the Ravagers. Ebony Maw almost kills T'Challa but The Collector's assistant helps him and kills Ebony. Thanos and Nebula fight Cull Obsidian and Proxima and kill them using part of the Embers.
- T'Challa fights The Collector who uses Dark Elves knives, and Hela's helmet. He also has Mjolnir and Captain America's shield in his collection. Yondu comes to save him, and trap the Collector in a cage, releasing all the other prisoners from his collection.
- T'Challa and Yondu leave in the Wakandan ship (And they have Cosmo the Spacedog with them!!!!) T'Challa returns home to Wakanda with the Ravagers family...and then this happens:



- The episode ends with Ego meeting an adult Peter Quill, who's now working at Dairy Queen; and a final dedication of the episode to Chadwick Boseman, who will return for 3 more episodes, including the Season Finale.

Epic’s ‘Fortnite’ Rips Off ‘Among Us’ with “Imposters”


Yesterday, Epic Games and ‘Fortnite’ announced a new “Imposters” mode that basically copies indie studio InnerSloth’s highly successful ‘Among Us.’ For a multimillion dollar company who has collaborated with major brands such as Nike and Marvel, that has even hosted full in-game concerts with artists such as Marshmello, Travis Scott and most recently, Ariana Grande, you would think they would do a proper collaboration with a small indie-game studio. Many on social media shared this sentiment and called out Epic Games / Fortnite.

ONTD gets a shoutout in NYMag's new piece on Gawker

It's a self-deprecating pastime here to joke about the fact that we're hanging onto a dying celebrity gossip website. But by jove, people still notice us, baby! We're not done yet!

Over the past year, as the pandemic and DeuxMoi have injected new life into the celebrity gossip mill, thinkpieces have been written about the gossip industry and ONTD has gotten mentions in a few places. The NYTimes. Vice. And now NYMag.

Choire Sicha, co-founder of The Awl (RIP) and a former Gawker editor, just had a piece published in NYMag about the Gawker revamp. At one point, he compares the site with ONTD and says:

"Gawker always let itself be outpaced on its own innovations. Oh No They Didn’t, still roaring on LiveJournal, always did celebrity-gossip chat better."

The rest of the piece talks about the different iterations of Gawker that have existed and nu Gawker. If you're interested in the rest of the article, a few key points and quotes behind the cut.

Ludacris Is Now Shilling Jif® Peanut Butter, Takes Cheeky Shots at Mumbling Rappers With Ad




Ludacris has teamed up with
Jif® Peanut Butter and takes a cheeky shot at today’s mumbling rappers in the process. In the ad — directed by Dave Meyers — Luda has trouble finding inspiration while recording his bars...that is until he takes a spoonful bite of Jif® Peanut Butter (which is conveniently right next to him on a table, of course). Suddenly his producers in the studio are impressed with his mumbling rap flow and the rest is history.

Lorde is Not Worried That Her Eco-Friendly Music Boxes Will Not Count Towards Billboard Charts

Lorde is taking an eco-friendly route for the release of her upcoming album Solar Power but it looks like her efforts don't meet rules according to Billboard.

Solar Power will released as a music box that includes various collectibles and a digital download containing the album and two bonus tracks. It will also be released on vinyl as well.

“I have zero anxiety about it, but I’m sure there is someone with a spreadsheet somewhere, who can point to the ways in which I’m making less money.”


When it comes to taking a less commercial approach for the album release and Lorde reveals, “I have more money than I could ever spend in my life. I own a home. I own some lovely rugs and great furniture and can buy whatever I want at the grocery store. Like, we’re good on money.”

Liam Payne and Maya Henry Are Back Together After Calling Off Engagement


Liam Payne, 27, and Maya Henry, 21, are giving it another try. The two are now back together after calling off their engagement back in June. A source close to Maya exclusively told E! News that Lime and Maya “rekindled their relationship” in mid-July, nearly a month after they called off their engagement. “They took time apart due to their busy schedules and having distance between them,” the source continued. “They needed the break because they weren’t communicating well.”

The insider told E! that following their split, Lime realized stuff and decided that he wanted to make things work. When Maya returned to the UK for work, they “reconnected.”

The reconciliation doesn’t mean they will get married any time soon. “They are living together in England but aren’t putting pressure on the wedding or engagement yet,” says the source. They added that the couple is “focused on being back together and spending time together right now.”

Liam and Maya initially announced their engagement in August 2020 and started dating in September 2019.

An ONTD Original - A Ranking of The 'Bridgerton' Novels by This Author

My dearest readers of ONTD-ton,

A while ago, this author watched this short film about the Bridgerton novels posted in this very community. This film intrigued me, readers, and I set my
cap to reading them all. For the original film made some of these novels sound like they’d be of import to watch the series, which I fully intend to tune into on Netflix.

So This Author did so (bar The Duke and I, which this very community said the first season was a better version than the novel) and after my adventure, darling citizens of ONTD'ton, I felt as if I had to make an ONTD Original to explain the novels and also rank them.

For the ‘ton of ONTD, I present my findings in a three tier style. There are eight siblings Bridgerton, and therefore eight books. This author did not read the prequels, sequels or reference novels, so if my darling readers have read those note that I am not including ANY other siblings. The Featherington and the Smythe-Smith siblings are not on This Author’s radar.

Part the first will be the novels themselves, ranked 1-8. Then following is a ranking of the siblings Bridgerton, ranked 1-8. The final category will be the spouses Bridgerton, ranked. The end will give my darling readers the order of the novels in both pleasure and development. Please be aware dear readers that This Author is holding nothing back and giving as good as it gets, which does beget that this post is FULL OF SPOILERS. If our polite ‘ton do not wish to be spoiled for either the novels or the programme, please stop your reading thus.

Crush 40’s lead singer hints the band is involved in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Movie



In out of nowhere news, lead singer of the band Crush 40, Johnny Gioeli, posted a tweet hinting that the band may be involved with the newest Sonic film and to "stay tuned". Below the cut is the tweet in question.

[The Tweet]

And before you go asking "Who is Crush 40?" they are responsible for a lot of iconic songs in the Sonic franchise starting from the late 1990s to the mid 2000s. Some of there songs include: Open Your Heart, Escape from the City, Live and Learn, What I'm Made Of..., and I Am... All Of Me. Needless to say if Crush 40 is actually involved with the newest film, we are in for a good time.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is expected to roll around April 2022.

Larry David yelled at Alan Dershowitz in a grocery store for obvious reasons


- Larry David ignored Dershowitz's greeting in Chilmark's General Store on Martha's Vineyard, so Dersh said, "We can still be friends!" and David was like, "No. No, we really can't. I saw you. I saw you with your arm around Pompeo! It's disgusting!" Which it is. They went back and forth for a minute and it ended with David walking away while Dershowitz whipped off his t-shirt to reveal another t-shirt that said, "It's the Constitution, Stupid!" before driving away in a dusty old Volvo.

- Dersh was eager to tell Page Six that it's McCarthyism not to be friends with people because they routinely defended Trump. And also that he was wearing two shirts because he was going to give the top shirt as a gag gift to a friend?

- Larry David is really missing out.
