Here is a look at what is hitting the theaters this weekend.  Slim pickings, so you might be catching some of the older flicks that are out.  We don’t blame you.

Season Of The Witch:  Well…Few words can describe how I think this movie will be.  I could take a picture of some dog crap and post it here for you instead.  This one stars Nicholas Cage. (why is this guy still getting gigs?  Does he work that cheap?)

A medieval knight undertakes a mission pitting him against a devious witch and making him the last hope for the world against an ancient and dark force. His faith broken by years of battle as a crusader, Behmen returns to central Europe to find his homeland decimated by the Black Plague. While searching for food and supplies at the Palace at Marburg, Behmen and his trusted companion, Felson are apprehended and ordered by the dying Cardinal to deliver a young peasant girl – believed to be the witch responsible for the Plague – to a remote abbey where her powers can be destroyed. Behmen agrees to the assignment but only if the peasant girl is granted a fair trial. As he and five others set off on this dangerous journey, they realize with mounting dread that the cunning girl is no ordinary human, and that their mission will pit them against an evil that even in these dark times they never could have imagined.

Country Strong: Again, I don’t see much promise in this movie.  I think I’ve seen it at one point in my life. It was called Pure Country and starred George Straight.  Probably won’t be like that, but it stars Tim McGraw and Gwyneth Paltrow (is she a singer or an actress?)

Soon after a rising young singer-songwriter gets involved with a fallen, emotionally unstable country star, the pair embarks on a career resurrection tour helmed by her husband/manager and featuring a beauty-queen-turned-singer. Between concerts, romantic entanglements and old demons threaten to derail them all.
