Great American Novels & the Attempt at Great Film Adaptations

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Movie Previews, Movies | 5 Comments

What is the Great American Novel? This is one of my favorite questions to ask people to get a quick read on their personality, approach towards pop culture, literature, and feelings on America. Based on how informed/passionate/apathetic someone is, asking someone about politics doesn’t always give you a true answer about what they truly think about America, at least as far as its strengths, weaknesses, history, culture, and themes go. No big deal – just some light dinner topics. Read more

Posted on by Guest in Featured, Guest Spots, Movie Previews, Movies | 3 Comments

This guest post comes from one of the funniest people The Wise Guise writers know, Josh Smith. Josh is the Director of Contemporary Worship at Christ United Methodist Church in Memphis, TN. We are thrilled he found the time to join us for a guest post and we hope you enjoy! You can follow Josh on Twitter at @yeshuasmith and check out his music on iTunes here.

A couple of weeks ago, The Wise Guise TM approached me about doing a guest post and so I assumed that they wanted me to do a rundown of this summer’s hot upcoming movie releases. I also thought that was strange, because I haven’t actually seen a summer movie in the theater since I bought a minivan and started wearing socks with my sandals, but I was able to Google the movie posters so I’m pretty sure I’ve nailed this one. I now humbly present, The Wise Guise Summer Movie Guide TM. You’re welcome. Read more

Upcoming Films of 2012

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Movie Previews, Movies | 2 Comments

Well reader of this, you’re welcome. I’ve done all the work for you. Compiled here is everything you need to know and look forward to related to movies in 2012. This isn’t every movie that’s coming out, just the ones that I feel are most noteworthy. About half of them are linked with trailers if you click the names and the others are linked to the IMDb page because the trailers haven’t been released. I have probably spent more time on this post than any research paper I’ve ever done so I hope you enjoy! I tried to include all of the blockbusters as well as the smaller indie films that are noteworthy. This should be a good reference throughout the year and you might want to bookmark it because I’ll be updating it throughout the year with date changes and additions. Read more
