Movies

Season of the Witch

It’s been several seasons since this Nicolas Cage-starrer was ready for release.  That’s not a good sign.  The trailers make is an “is she or isn’t she” with a 14th Century girl accused of being a witch.  It’s got some interesting people in it besides Cage: Ron Perlman; Christopher Lee; and Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire’s Capone).  The director, Dominic Sena, worked successfully with Cage on Gone in Sixty Seconds.  Still, I’d be surprised to see this get to $40 million dogro (domestic gross).

Cons

Cons are short for “conventions”, when people who rarely leave the house get together…just kidding, of course, they can be great fun.  For details, I recommend Fanboy’s Convention List.
