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

2013 NFL Season Preview & Week 1 Picks

Posted on by Jeremy Wilson in Featured, Football, Sports, Weekly Posts | 2 Comments

Professional football is back! I’m not talking about “amateur” athletes being paid like professionals— *coughJohnnyFootballcough*. I’m talking about real, professional, NFL football!

Last season featured suspended Saints, rookie quarterback explosions—Luck, RG3, Russell Wilson, Tannehill, Brandon Weeden (jk)- PED bans, the Ray Lewis farewell tour, Kaepernick taking over, the rise of the NFC West, Peyton returning to his Peyton ways, Colts using their #chuckstrong magic to make the postseason, a player nicknamed “Muscle Hampster,” the Mark Sanchez butt fumble, Joe Flacco’s hail mary, brothers coaching against each other in the Super Bowl, Beyonce reuniting with Destiny’s Child, the lights in the Superdome going out for 30 minutes (probably by the bitter Saints), Jacoby Jones’ kickoff return TD, the 49ers comeback, and the Ravens final redzone stop.

Whew.

2013 has a lot to live up to, but it’s already off to a quick start. The Aaron Hernandez situation, Tebow making a pit stop in New England, the Ravens trading away their entire attempt at a Super Bowl defense (much like the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks), HBO’s Hard Knocks turning us all into partial Bengals fans, RG3’s miraculous recovery time from a torn ACL, the Saints back in action, and much more.

Are you ready for some football? I know I am.

Here is my quick shakedown on how I see each division playing out in 2013…

the o.c.

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?

Roundtable: Back to School Edition

Posted on by The Wise Guise in Featured, Misc. Posts, Roundtables, Weekly Posts | 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.”

The Bachelorette 2013 Recap: SEASON FINALE (PART 1)

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, Television, TV Reviews, Weekly Posts | Leave a comment

Holy bonkers, y’all. The Bachelorette got OFF THE CHAIN last night. We’re talking, like, this should have been the only episode in this entire season, bonkers. We’re not going to do a traditional five point recap because the only recap is the fact that BROOKS DOESN’T LOVE DES AND WHAT THE HELL IS GOING TO HAPPEN NOW????

Okay, so let me break it down for you:

Des went on two FANTASY SUITE dates with Drew and then Chris, and nothing at all interesting happened, except probably some behind-the-scenes heavy petting, and both dudes wildly professing their love for her while she secretly pretended she was dry humping Brooks.

Roundtable: Entertainment Suggestions for Dog Days of Summer

Posted on by The Wise Guise in Featured, Movies, Roundtables, Television, Weekly Posts | Leave a comment

With the All-Star Game and NBA season over, the dog days of summer are upon us. It’s hot, there is a bit over a month until football, and there’s not a lot of great new TV on. So this week’s Roundtable will provide some suggestions for how you can entertain yourself while sipping on your sweet tea and trying to stay cool.

Feel free to answer any or all of these three questions for the roundtable.

- Which TV show would you recommend people should “binge-watch”? Whether it’s on Netflix or not, which show should people spend a week or few catching up on in a short period of time?

- What’s your guilty pleasure TV show? Which show are you kind of ashamed of watching, but you know if more people actually gave it a try, they’d be hooked too?

- What’s your favorite movie that no one has ever heard of? Which movie is that you love so much, but you’re shocked that most people have probably never heard of it?
