Proof Review: Wonder Park (2019)

WONDER PARK Review by: Christopher Haskell “We are the wonder in Wonderland” — June Bailey (Brianna Denski) “Wonder Park” may entertain your six-year-old with its sleek, crisp animation, but it doesn’t come close to packing the same emotional punch as anything Disney, Pixar, or Dreamworks puts out.

THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2:ANGEL OF DEATH Review by: Christopher Haskell “We are the wonder in Wonderland” June Bailey (Brianna Denski) “The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death” lives and dies by jump scares.

One Minute Review: The One I Love (2014) [4.0]

THE ONE I LOVE // No one is pulling off independent science fiction better than Mark Duplass. In 2012, Duplass starred in “Safety Not Guaranteed,” a psychological sci-fi that played more on relationships rather than the time travel element that made it unique.

HERCULES // Never has marketing been more misleading than it was for the new Dwayne Johnson vehicle “Hercules”.
