What The Wise Guise is meant to be is a place for us to get together and discuss the things we love and are passionate about, in a hopefully entertaining way. Think of it as a virtual MacLaren’s Pub, The Max, or Monk’s Café. We each love writing. We each have a propensity to become addicted to varied corners of culture. So we figured… why not join forces?! Think Super 8, where Spielberg, Abrams, Coach Eric Taylor, and the sassiest adolescents since The Sandlot joined forces. We don’t want to create another website full of people who think they have all the answers about everything from comprehensive tax reform and college football to TV quality and Kardashian cup sizes (the latter two not always being mutually exclusive). We’re not the Huffington Post. The Wise Guise is merely a place for us to post some opinions and observations, while collecting your feedback. The name “The Wise Guise” derives from the idea that so many bloggers feel the need to assert their self proclaimed expertise. They try to give the appearance of wisdom when, more often than not, they just use controversy to get their name out there. We have no “unnamed” sources and again, we don’t claim to be experts. We come more from the line of people who wish they were experts but have real jobs. Well, some of us have real jobs… sometimes. You can also follow us on Twitter @TheWiseGuise!

Netflix Streaming Suggestions: Part Six

Delicatessen thumb 560xauto 23765 Netflix Streaming Suggestions: Part Six

Aha! I bet I had most of you wannabe film buffs thinking I was only suggesting things you’ve seen! I would venture to guess that 99.99999% of you who click on this post will not have seen all five suggestions for this week. The odds are so far in my favor it’s ridiculous. Feel free to prove me wrong though.

Let’s get to it…

1. Adaptation- Written by Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and directed by Spike Jonze, Adaptation is a really underrated movie in my opinion that is both really clever and really thought-provoking.

2. Arsenic and Old Lace- Classic Frank Capra film that is still a truly brilliantly comedic masterpiece.

3. Delicatessen- Easily one of the most morbid dark comedies I’ve ever seen. This is the debut film from Jean-Pierre Jeunet (guy that made Amélie.)


4. Hunger- Another debut film, this time from a still relatively newcomer, Steve McQueen. This is by far one of the best, most powerful debut films I’ve seen. It’s visually stunning and emotionally gut-wrenching.

5. Smoke- This one is a recent discovery of mine. It stars Harvey Keitel, William Hurt, Forest Whitaker and Michael from LOST. It’s a solid comedy and a really good screenplay with great performances.
