"The Craft" cleverly--and brutally--imagines what would happen if several unhappy girls at a fictional L.A. Catholic high school, declaring themselves witches, could actually tap into malevolent supernatural powers. The young women are naturally thrilled to even some scores, but predictably the whole thing gets out of hand in gory fashion, occasioning lots of gruesome, nightmarish special effects.

Robin Tunney costars in "The Mentalist," an extremely big hit for CBS. The season finale is on Tuesday. She has been in many movies, such as "End of Days," "Vertical Limit" and, most important, "The Craft." Fun fact: Her cousin Tom Tunney is the first openly gay alderman in Chicago. -- Which kind of season finale can we expect? You know, the tone of the show changes a bit in the finale! It's more serious. And the exchanges we have are a lot more honest.

It seems as if, once every 10 years or so, some ambitious filmmaker decides to buck the odds and mount a big-budget drama on the side of a mountain. Once you eliminate the most recent additions to this craggy little niche within the action genre--the Imax "Everest" and the opening five minutes of "M:I-2"--only Renny Harlin's "Cliffhanger," Clint Eastwood's "The Eiger Sanction" and, of course, "Heidi," leap immediately to mind.

Takeshi Kitano's "Hana-Bi," a Japanese film of life, death and violence, won the coveted Golden Lion award for best picture at the Venice film festival Saturday. The film, with very little dialogue, tells the story of a detective, played by Kitano, and the problems that start when he visits his wife in the hospital instead of accompanying his partner and friend on a stakeout.

Watching the remake of "The In-Laws" is like listening to a drawn-out, gruesomely inappropriate toast made at a posh wedding reception by a dissolute best man. No, even worse: It's like having a tin-eared DJ sampling John Philip Sousa and hillbilly funsters Homer and Jethro throughout the same reception.

"Cherish" is an unfortunate title for a film that has nothing endearing about it. Implausible at every turn, it offers a dab of quirkiness and edge from writer-director Finn Taylor, but otherwise has nothing for audiences to embrace. Stars Robin Tunney and Tim Blake Nelson have enough going for them that they would be worth seeing in happier circumstances, but they can't make much of a dent in this negligible film.
