Wild Child was on TV tonight.


So I just got done watching the ABC Family premiere of "Wild Child," starring Emma Roberts.

I watched this film to connect with my Wild Side, by being socially deviant once again and watching a movie that was not made for 22 year old males. I feel so rebellious.

If you remember back when I reviewed LymeLife, I made the Bold and Daring move to say that "Emma Roberts is a Prick."

And once again, Emma Roberts is playing a girl that is a notorious PRick, capital PR.

I had some review notes written, but I scratched them. The first 38 minutes of this movie are so incredibly bad that words do not describe it because there is nothing to say.
Emma Roberts plays a party girl from the USA, who gets shipped off to English boarding school, and we don't get to see anything interesting from the back story.

After an hour,I found I was kind of interested, but not really.

So,
this is a bad film that gets mildly better, but still bad in the end.

Basically:


If you need a Prick, get Emma Roberts.

If you need a teen with Problems, get Kristin Stewart.

If you need a hole who is a total F* up in life, get a Lohan (either or any, but that wouldn't really be acting.

QATFYG:
What did you do tonight? I hope it was better than watching this looooousy film.

#EmmaRobertsIsAPrick but I mean that in a positive way, her characters are often pricks, and overall her performance of them is well...pricky....so that makes it okay for some reason.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
