Grading All the New Movie Trailers Out of Comic-Con


I traveled to visit family this weekend, so as new trailers came pouring in over the weekend from San Diego's Comic-Con, I was only able to watch a couple of them. I'm sure many of you may be interested in seeing them, debating them, and discussing them. So I Read more

Bright Spots: Chauncy's Chance


So I just happened to see Memphis, Tennessee briefly trending earlier today on Facebook (it appears to have already dropped half an hour after I first saw it), and so I obviously had to see what was going on. I was thrilled to see it was for another positive Read more

Bright Spots: Memphis Teen Pays For College Like A Boss

In Defense of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

My journey back to being an occasional pro wrestling fan has been well-documented here at The Wise Guise. First, when my little brother-in-law arrived from South Africa, The Rock returned to WrestleMania and The Undertaker went for his 20th win to stay undefeated at WrestleMania, I caught up on what had happened in wrestling since I’d last watched a decade ago.  Then, I couldn’t resist watching again when so many of the top WWE superstars competed in Money in the Bank ladder matches. That prompted me to write my first Wolfpac Recap, a wrestling recap done by a former fan who loved the nWo Wolfpac and doesn’t really know much about who each wrestler is or the story lines. Since then, Alex Beene of The Wise Guise has discussed how relevant WWE still is in 2013.
