Roundtable: Thoughts on Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah”

[Editor’s Note: I’m a big fan of Aronofsky. I LOVED The Fountain and thought Black Swan, though imperfect, was extremely creative and captivating. So I was disappointed when Aronofsky dropped as the director of the second Wolverine film. But then I was intrigued when I found out he was directing a film about the Old Testament tale of Noah’s Ark. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to see how this would be. And, with the premiere of the first trailer, I’m still not sure. So I did what I do with many things… sent the trailer to some of my smartest and funniest friends to get their thoughts. It would have been selfish of me not to share these with you. – Joseph]

Joseph: From the man who brought us Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, and Black Swan

NOAH!

Discuss.

Some context is helpful for what the rumored problems with the early screenings have been.

Roundtable: Back to School Edition

Posted on by The Wise Guise in Featured, Misc. Posts, Roundtables | Leave a comment

“The new school year is upon us, and unfortunately for most of The Wise Guise and friends, that doesn’t mean anything since we’ve long since graduated and become adults. However, we all love to reminisce, so this week we each wanted to share a brief first day of school memory. Could be college. Could be kindergarten. Could be funny. Could be sweet. Regardless we hope you enjoy our strolls down the first day of school memory lane.”
