Season of the Witch
Where do i start? First of all id like to give somewhat of a shout out to Ron Pearlman hes a wonderful actor and highly underrated and suffers for this by having to take movies like this one here... Season of the Witch. For those of you who dont know S.O.T.W is about this "Knight" and his buddy who abandon the crusades for some stupid reason and go to Syria (the desert country by Israel) witch looks alot like medieval France for the weirdest reason, there they find a castle (again odd), inside said castle is a witch, they gotta get witch to some temple blah blah blah. To put it bluntly this movie is COMPLETE shit, the story is so cut and paste from al bunch of other movies its ridiculous, the puns and "tough guy" lines Nic Cage (more on him later ) sputters through out are dam right hard to watch. The directing in this movie is so dam lazy it almost laughable, every time they need a break in the "dialogue" or the "action" they cut to a wide sweeping shot with classical music playing (done right in the LOTR movies) this happens AT LEAST 15 times through out. On to the "acting" as i said before Ron Pearlman does his best with what hes got and i just feel sorry for him. The rest of the cast however are terrible, all supporting roles are filled by people whom just phone the bullshit in (and so they should) the real diarrhea icing on this shit cake is, of course Nic Cage. Now other than his stellar performance in Lord of War, id probably say nic cage is the WORST leading man off all time, his performance in this however is probably his worst yet. He is so unbelievable as this bad ass knight, or what ever hes trying to be in this that it made me laugh pretty much the whole movie and dam right cheer when he died in the end. Oh whoops Spoilers, honestly though if you were looking forward to seeing this and i just ruined it, you are whats wrong with this world. Id think of some positives, maybe that with better actors and better movie maker this could of been a kinda ok movie, but that's just ridiculous
