SEVENTH SON Trailer Thrills And Perplexes

We have finally lived long enough to see Jeff Bridges play a grizzled wizard.

How the Hell did this happen? Seventh Son may be based on a series of fantasy novels, which are all the rage now, but that doesn't alleviate the fact that this appears to be a pastiche of nerd films that underwhelmed at the box office. Namely, Reign of Fire, Season of the Witch, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Hansel and Gretel, and R.I.P.D. (this article was written from the future).

And yet, here I am, dying to see this. That might not be a compliment, however. I tend to love stuff like this, but I'm also usually all alone in my affections. Nevertheless, this was not on my radar before today, but now it's way up there, though I do wish Jeff Bridges would go ahead and spit out whatever it is he has stuck in his mouth when he speaks lately.

What do you think? Did we just see everything this film has to offer? Am I being too nice? Will this movie eventually make a nice "Jeff Bridges Fantasy Failure" double feature alongside R.I.P.D.? Sound off in the comments.
