Cine Beaverhausen: Seventh Son with Julianne Moore
Released this past Friday in the US, Seventh Son poses a risk for Ms Moore alone, however, as she is nominated for a Best Actress Oscar this month. Will Academy voters hold her slumming through this film, as formidable witch Mother Malkin, against her and her brilliant portrayal in Still Julia?
Seventh Son is a murky mess of an adventure film with cheesy special effects, intentionally dumped on the market by Universal at a time they anticipated nobody would notice. And, gauging the box-office receipts, they seem to be correct in that presumption.
