Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 1 Comment

Last week I got to go to a sneak preview showing of 21 Jump Street, which starts playing in theaters this Friday (March 16th). I wouldn’t normally have hardly any expectations going into a movie like this; however, at the time I went to see it, it had managed to pick up 12 positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes giving it a 100% rating. This intrigued me and built a little excitement going into it. 12 reviews probably doesn’t sound like …

What a perfect film to be the inaugural Wise Guise movie review! I saw this film last Friday night on opening night in Memphis and couldn’t be more excited to share my thoughts with you all.

Most of you don’t know me so you don’t know how seriously …

No matter how confident I am in my heavily researched picks, I always end the night with a “huh” look on my face. Here is my selection process: First, I make a concerted effort to see every film nominated in every category. I follow up all my viewings with reading what every “expert” under the sun thinks will happen and their rationale and all …

“Certain things leave you in your life and certain things stay with you. And that’s why we’re all interested in movies- those ones that make you feel, you still think about. Because it gave you such an emotional response, it’s actually part of your emotional make-up, in a way.” -Tim Burton Welcome to Part 2 of my 2011 movie rankings. As some of you know I absolutely love ranking things, so I’m sure ranking various film related topics will become …

2011 Movie Rankings (11-25)

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 3 Comments

“Movies entertain us, and often they are nothing more than grab bags of gimmicks, gags, and gab. But those that continue to appeal to audiences over time and to lodge in our individual and collective memories do so because they reveal patterns of how we live our lives. Our hopes and fears, our aspirations and our failures, our longings and our frustrations, our loves and our hates are all embodied in the memorable popular films.” I’m a big quote guy. …
