Season Of The Witch Review

Season Of The Witch Review, (AP) – “Country Strong” – Some of the best songs are those countries that tell a story – those with vivid images, a strong narrative drive and gain emotional killer. In telling the story of a singing superstar self-destructive, the allusion to the possibility of providing this type of transfer of experience, but ultimately it is too winding and uneven never really pull your heart. Writer / director Shana Feste has a sort of uncomfortable in the middle. It is not rich enough, and his characters are not developed enough to burn a drama or a portrait of artistic torment; “Coal Miner’s Daughter” is not. But at the same time, there is no more above, enough to be enjoyed as a guilty pleasure Divalicious. Yet, “Country Strong” has its moments, especially in music, which is nice, though nothing revolutionary and is actually sung by its stars. Gwyneth Paltrow plays Kelly Canter, which watered benders are legendary. Her husband-manager (Tim McGraw) derives its early rehabilitation to put her back on the road. Along the promenade is the hipster honky-tonk with whom she has an affair (Garrett Hedlund) and a beauty queen with her own dreams of stardom countries (Leighton Meester). What follows is a series of flirtations and dalliances, breakdowns and episodes in a drunken state, none of which seems to be more important than any other. PG-13 for thematic elements involving alcohol abuse and some sexual content. 111 minutes. Two out of four.

“Season of the Witch” – So here’s the thing: It takes place during the 14th century, but everyone speaks in contemporary language, which would have been acceptable if the dialogue was clever or smart or funny or, you know is good. Instead, Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman are the knights who say … nothing of particular note in a supernatural action thriller that never really exciting. You expect this kind of schlock in January, but “Season of the Witch” was not even ill in a pleasant way. The scenery is dull, the battles are interchangeable, and no one seems particularly interested in being here. Meanwhile, Dominic Sena (who previously directed Cage in “Gone in Sixty Seconds”) is flat-out going for it in a schlocky, B-horror way. What remains is all swollen, boring and quite forgettable. Cage is not even in full on, wheels-off here, unfortunately, instead, he delivers his lines in a dull monotone. After killing countless men in the name of God during the Crusades, the character of John Cage, Behmen, joker and his henchman, Felson decide the packaging, but to avoid being jailed for desertion, they must transporting a suspected witch (Claire Foy) to a distant abbey for trial. PG-13 for thematic elements, violence and disturbing content. 100 minutes. One star out of four.
