Josh Smith: Alas, Cloud Atlas Future Cloudy

Posted on by Guest in Featured, Guest Spots, Misc. Posts, Movie Previews, Movies | 1 Comment

We’re ecstatic about today’s guest post from best friend of The Wise Guise, Josh Smith, who previously wrote this joy of a blog post.

Josh has now seen the movie, as well. After reading this post, check out his Movie Review of Cloud Atlas.
