Bright Spots: Chauncy’s Chance

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Assorted Wisdom, Bright Spots, Featured | Leave a comment

So I just happened to see Memphis, Tennessee briefly trending earlier today on Facebook (it appears to have already dropped half an hour after I first saw it), and so I obviously had to see what was going on. I was thrilled to see it was for another positive news story. I decided I had to provide information here at The Wise Guise on this young man named Chauncy and how you can be a part of changing this young man’s …

Bright Spots: Memphis Teen Pays For College Like A Boss

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Bright Spots, Featured | Leave a comment

Every now and then the media chooses to spend a little time on positive stories to share with the general public. I think it’s important that we, as consumers, show up with website hits and/or media views to reinforce this positive publicity in a society dominated by negative news and misleading clickbait headlines. We can’t really complain about only getting negative news if that’s all we’re willing to click on. So below is the story of a young man who …

2016 Oscars Hot Takes

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Entertainment, Featured, Movies | Leave a comment

OK…I’m going to try to make this as short and sweet as possible so that I can close the book on the 2016 Academy Awards. A couple quick notes before we dive in: I love Chris Rock but I thought his material was just okay. I both wanted and expected a bunch of race jokes, but I think we can all agree we reached a point pretty quickly where it became overkill. Before I go any further…I’m all for championing …

Second Annual Groucho Movie Awards

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Entertainment, Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | Leave a comment

Welcome back, movie nerds! Last year I started a new tradition of hosting my own annual movie awards that I deemed “The Grouchos”. This name is obviously meant to be an homage to Groucho Marx, and is doubly fitting because I tend to get snarky when it comes to discussing movies. Also, the more I learn about the Oscars voting process, the more grouchy I get with that as well. Anyway, last year’s post can be found here, and I …

So back in April I did a post previewing the upcoming films coming out in 2015 and I think it’s about time I update the 12 people who read that post.

What I’d like to do to reward your patience is to provide my current top 10 films of 2015 and then spotlight the 10 I’m currently most looking forward to for the …

Celebrating America With Movies: Fourth of July Viewing Alternatives

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Entertainment, Featured, Movies | Leave a comment

I first want to state that I fully believe that America, and this great holiday in particular, are meant to be celebrated outdoors. Not necessarily in those ridiculous looking American flag shorts you bought online a few years ago to “stand out” and then dug through your closet to find late last night to wear again today after partaking in that case of Sam Adams… but who am I to judge? You just do whatever that bald eagle that lives within your …
