What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith


Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more

The Top 10 Things in Entertainment for 2016


2016 has largely been seen as a bad year, with one of the prominent reasons being the passing of so many artists and celebrities. While it certainly was painful to lose talents like Prince, David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, and dozens of others, those ends didn’t take away from the Read more

With World War Z coming out this next week, this week’s topic is a creative and fun one. It’s time to create a Survival Guide for When (Not If) the Zombie Apocalypse occurs.

So we posed two questions to the panelists for this week’s roundtable:
 
1) Where would you hole up during a zombie apocalypse?
 
2) If you could only have 5 items for your Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit, what would you choose and why?

You won’t want to miss their answers below! This is our most hilarious and creative roundtable yet. Enjoy!

With Man of Steel bringing Superman back to the silver screen when it premieres this weekend, we thought The Wise Guise and friends should each answer the question: “What is the best/your favorite superhero movie?” Because several of the guise feared every answer would be The Dark Knight, we decided to not make people choose between Heath Ledger and anyone else (DARN YOU, OLSEN TWINS!). So we made the weekly topic best superhero movie… not called The Dark Knight. We asked people to be creative. The result: THREE Keanu Reeves movies were mentioned. Check out what The Wise Guise and friends discussed, including traditional superhero movies and… others. Enjoy!

Roundtable: Which TV Show Would You Bring Back?

There was a time in our site’s history where we would have e-mail threads with our friends about various topics, and then Clayton or I would format those into a lengthy blog post. Eventually, they became too inconsistent and too time-consuming to put together, so they faded away. Recently, Wise Guise contributor Sutter Vaught reached out to me with the idea of doing a weekly series where we posed one direct question to a panel of writers/contributors/friends to answer. With a more consistent format, this new Weekly Roundtable series was born. Each week, we’ll be posing a question to a panel (which will have consistent characters and some occasional guests) to give their thoughts.

For the first one, the topic was an easy one. With Arrested Development’s return to Netflix for a fourth season, 24’s return for a special season next May, and Veronica Mars returning with a KickStarter-funded movie, everyone is thinking about what other TV shows they wish could come back from the abyss of cancellation. Our panel answers the simple question: Which TV show would YOU bring back for more episodes?
