Here it is folks, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The first episode of the Bad Films in Good Company podcast.
Before anyone says…. no, this Season of the Witch isn’t the one that doesn’t have Michael Myers in it. Released in 2011, Season of the Witch was, most likely, a ‘cash in’ on the success and popularity of The Lord of the Rings/Hobbit series’ and, more recently, Game of Thrones. The film is led by 2 actors with similarly mixed and sketchy careers.
Does Nicolas Cage operate any quality control? His most recent output doesn’t suggest he does, with very few films garnering positive reviews, and this film, at the time of writing, stands at 10% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, Nicolas Cage has well documented tax problems and, seemingly, will just take a pay check to keep the IRS off his back. But, lest we forget, he is an Oscar winning actor with a breadth and variety who, nearly, starred as Superman.
Ron Perlman’s work in the TV series Beauty and the Beast garnered him awards. His roles for Guillermo del Toro have brought him wide acclaim and Hellboy made him a household name. However, he was also in Police Academy 7, so he has form for appearing in junk, and his best work seems to be done behind a ton of special effects make-up.
Join Ben and Foz as they take a road trip through a forest to see if Cage and Perlman can make this a dark ages version of Bad Boys.
