Movie Review: Wonder
  |  @   |  

Wonder
Director: Stephen Chbosky
Screenwriter: Stephen Chbosky
Cast: Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay, Izabela Vidovic, Mandy Patinkin, Daveed Diggs, Noah Jupe, Danielle Rose Russell
Distributor: Lionsgate
Rated PG | 113
Release Date: November 17, 2017

Based on the children’s novel of the same name, Wonder inspires with its virtuous themes that tell its audience to do the right thing. On the surface, Stephen Chbosky‘s film looks like one of those schmaltzy films so formulaic that you probably already know that it is going to hit all the right emotional notes at all the right times.

But sometimes predictability is not so bad, and underneath that surface, there is something honest and heartfelt about it. There is a refreshing message that reminds us when given the choice to be right or be kind, we should be kind. Check out my full review of Wonder below.

  |  @   |  

It’s hard to imagine anyone liking a character played by Alfie Allen. As Theon Greyjoy on Game of Thrones he seized Winterfell, and as Iosef Tarasov he killed John Wick’s dog.

Course, just because he plays unlikable characters doesn’t mean that it is an ongoing thing. So who knows what he’ll be playing as he has been cast in The Predator. Find out more about the character and plot of the film in the report below.
