Agony Booth review: Calvin and Hobbes (1985-1995)

Agony Booth review: Wolf (1994)
My latest review for the Agony Booth looks at a film that had so much going for it but ended up falling flat. Two years after Columbia disappointed us with Bram Stoker’s Dracula , the same studio would do so again with Wolf . Both films had Oscar-winning di...
