[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…
Some context is helpful for what the rumored problems with the early screenings have been.
Seth: We’re gonna need a bigger boat.
Last year, we did one of our first Roundtables discussing all things Halloween – costumes for the young and old, movies, etc. This year, we got our growing group of friends together to give us their thoughts on funny/creative costume idea suggestions for this year, your favorite costume you’ve worn, your costumes that you think are overplayed, favorite scary movies, favorite candy to receive trick-or-treating, worst candy to receive, funny stories from past Halloweens, etc. Enjoy!

With summer winding down and a new TV season on the horizon, with The O.C. premiere’s 10th anniversary passing, and with all of us getting older every day, we thought this week’s roundtable would be a good time to reflect on a simple question:
Which TV Show or Movie has been formative to your life and how you view the world?
“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.”
