Most Anticipated Upcoming Films of 2015


Alright, so before we dive in, I want to acknowledge that I got a little carried away and there are a lot of movies listed below. I set out on this journey because I had no idea what to expect from the movies in 2015 and finished my research Read more

Need To Know: The Memphis Grizzlies And The NBA Playoffs Scenarios


Alright folks, it's time to buckle up for the NBA Playoffs! That means it's time for new Growl Towels, drum lines down Beale Street, and finding new reasons to hate every other player on every other team in the NBA. As you surely know by this point, all of Read more

Shamelessly really, really liking “I Really Like You”


Judging from the nearly 23 million views that Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” video already has, I’m pretty late to this party, so this post might be a few weeks behind. But that doesn’t mean I can’t talk about how great the song is. And let’s be Read more

Masters 2015: From Tiger to Rory


In 2012, in the fledgling months of The Wise Guise, I participated in a preview of The Masters. I wrote about my favorite parts of attending The Masters live and provided predictions for the Top 10 golfers to be in the Top 10 on the back nine on Sunday, when Read more

On Jake Gyllenhaal, Drake & Inspiration


New Year’s Day this year was a cold, rainy one in Manhattan. The bright lights of Broadway had always seemed to warm the chills running through my body, particularly on that date. That evening I was attending “Constellations,” a play brought across the Atlantic from its London roots for American Read more

Why the Undertaker still matters in 2015


Think about it for a minute. We’re in the year 2015. Hot topics of conversation center on cars that can drive themselves, space tourism and head sets that can put us in virtual worlds. And still, one of the major headlines of the Wrestlemania season is how will the Read more

Bauer Breakdown: 24 Season 9, Hour 3

Posted on by Jeremy Wilson in Entertainment, Featured, Television, TV Reviews | 1 Comment

Bauer Tube

With the return of 24, Joseph is living out his dream of covering a season of Jack Bauer saving humanity from blood-thirsty terrorists of every race and creed week-by-week on the blog. Catch up with last week’s roundtable discussing the two-hour premiere and enjoy this week as Jeremy Wilson and Joseph Williams share their thoughts on the latest time-ticking hour of 24: Live Another Day.

Jeremy Wilson

Another week of 24 is in the books, and they continue to cruise right on with their old tricks. We saw Jack and Chloe teaming up with traffic cameras to find a perp, the CIA staying just a step or two slower than Bauer, and a gut-wrenching minute of stitches being applied to a fresh wound. Surely the stitches are just to get us prepared for some torture scenes further down the road.

We also learned last night who is really running the country – Heller’s chief of staff, Mark Boudreau (Tate Donovan). Through three episodes/hours, Mark has shown that he is the puppet master to a president who is losing his mind – quite literally – and last night he went as far as to forge Heller’s signature. I can’t wait until Bauer swoops in wearing his aviators and leather jacket and steals Audrey from him, but we are several hours away from that scene.

An important part of last night’s episode was the introduction to the terrorists. What an odd group! A redheaded British woman and former wife of a deceased Taliban leader and her house of misfits are preparing to let Hell rain from the sky down on ten of London’s most popular venues. By the way, she’s definitely going to kill her own daughter, right? She held off the urge last night, but the gravedigger can go ahead and grab his favorite shovel, because it’s a done deal.

Film Review – “Neighbors”

Posted on by Alex Beene in Entertainment, Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | Leave a comment

“Neighbors” has been a bit of an enigma heading into release. When the promotion of a film is centered on Zac Efron taking his shirt off in multiple media appearances, your expectations for high quality may be watered down a tad. And given the fact Seth Rogen’s cinematic record is spotty at best, it’s fair to see why there would be a healthy dose of skepticism for his latest outing. Read more

Fred Talks

Late Night with Seth Meyers has officially been on the air for two and a half months, and the new host has only gotten better with each episode. Following the wild success that Jimmy Fallon found on Late Night was no easy task, but Seth and his team of writers have created fresh material with a nice dose of SNL flavor to keep their audience entertained and viewers at home watching them on DVR every morning – ok, maybe that’s just me.

Life has been crazy lately. We are pregnant with our first baby, sold a house, bought a house, moved, and I’ve finished law school. So there’s a lot of topics I’ve wanted to blog about, but haven’t been able to. In order to catch up, I decided to bring back the mailbag style. Some of the questions below are from real friends and readers. Some of the names have been made up so I could talk about what I wanted to talk about. Other names and locations have been changed to protect the innocent and/or provide alliterative effect. Enjoy! (Shout out to Jeremy Wilson for the awesome new logo above!)

Jack and Chloe

Andrew Garfield & WWO Host Salon Event In NYC

When you lose a parent, the first reaction is never one of appreciation. The immediate aftermath is not filled with happiness over all the times you shared and how blessed you were to have that person in your life.

Instead, you tend to focus on what can never be. You think of all the years you have left where you won’t have that parent around to talk to or share memories with moving forward. It’s that notion that leads to most of the heartache you experience when suffering through those first few weeks following a passing. Read more
