Peter Travers: 'Country Strong' and 'Season of the Witch' Belong in the Scum Bucket


Peter Travers doesn't like January. The month is typically a dumping ground for terrible films, and this year is no different. After watching Gwyneth Paltrow sing "Auto-Tuned to death" country songs in Country Strong — a "stupid, cliche-ridden, horrible thing," he says — and Nicolas Cage perform in the utterly nonsensical fantasy movie Season of the Witch, Travers was moved to toss both pictures into his Scum Bucket.
