Season of the Witch

Film Feature: HollywoodChicago.com Remembers George A. Romero

CHICAGO – The man that practically invented the modern Zombie film genre had met his own demise. Director George A. Romero passed away on July 16th, 2017, in Los Angeles. He was 77. Romero launched a whole new wave of horror with “Night of the Living Dead” in 1968, and put Pittsburgh (PA) on the film location map.

Blu-Ray Review: Nicolas Cage Would Like You to Forget ‘Season of the Witch’

Season of the Witch with Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman

CHICAGO – Dominic Sena’s “Season of the Witch” is one of the most bizarrely dull films made in a very long time. It doesn’t work even as escapist trash because the typically over-the-top Nicolas Cage can’t even bring his manic energy to the piece, choosing to sleep-walk through it instead. I was ready for a cheesy piece of period action but stunned at the tedious dialogue, boring action, and nonsensical plot. This thing is a mess and not even a fun one at that.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).

  • Wonder Woman

    CHICAGO – There are few films in 2017 that are as historically important as they are cinematically well-crafted. Of those, there is only one I saw three times in theaters. That honor comes in the form of the revolutionary “Wonder Woman,” which not only shows huge promise for the future of DC Comics films but for comic book-based films as a whole.
