While witches in the movies have generally been consigned to pictures we'd rather forget, it's actually pretty remarkable how diversely they've been used. From comedies to teen movies to even animated fare, the witch has provided some creative source material for writers willing to go the extra mile. And more than a few of these characters have cast their spell on us.

Happy Valentine's Day! It's the most romantic day of the year (at least, if you've been listening to the endless advertising), and we hope you've made your plans, movie-related or otherwise (we'd argue that nothing says Valentine's Day like the twists and sexual politics of "Side Effects," but other options are available...). Now, February 14th is about many things: wining, dining, flowers, cards, chocolate, declarations of undying love. But all being well, it's about something else too: knocking boots.

If there were a Bro Code for business, it would dictate that a career shared with one’s sibling is likely to be a good call. This fraternal model has had an illustrious history, from Marx to Coen to Farrelly (and to a lesser extent, Lehman). And so it is for Chris and Paul Weitz, whose "American Pie" redefined the teenage-boy-and-his-friend’s-mother-who’s-still-got-it dynamic, and simultaneously dealt an awkward blow to America’s baked goods industry.

Some directorial partners, like Joel and Ethan Coen for example, seem inseparable. For others, though, it’s only a matter of time before they start pursuing projects individually – that’s something we saw evidenced just last month when Allen Hughes went solo to direct “Broken City.”

Martin Scorsese seemingly never stops working. Whether it’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” an upcoming Bill Clinton documentary, another one for the New York Review Of Books, or even a Garth Brooks concert film, it seems as if he’s more prolific than ever. But the man isn’t just interested in his own projects; recently he’s been lending a helping hand to other filmmakers as well.

When Hollywood runs dry of sci-fi concepts to attach J.J. Abrams to, there's really just one name to pursue for source material: renowned author Richard Matheson, who at the age of 87 leaves a trail of “I Am Legend,” “Real Steel,” "Duel," "The Last Man On Earth" and countless other adaptations from his work. Luckily for MGM though, his son Richard Jr. is interested in the family business as well, and the studio has quickly put together a two-for-one deal.

There is probably no greater raconteur or actor you'd want to talk to more than Terence Stamp. Seriously, just read this interview we did with him at the tail end of last year -- dude knows how to tell a story. And recently, he regaled an audience in the U.K. with a few more tales following a screening of his latest film, "Song For Marion." And the actor dropped of couple intriguing nuggets that are worth a mention.

Berlin Review: Giuseppe Tornatore's 'The Best Offer' Is A Campy, Overcooked Mess

If director Giuseppe Tornatore has had an up-and-down time of it since his breakthrough, 1988's almost universally adored, Oscar-winning "Cinema Paradiso," it has to be said that his most recent film, "The Best Offer," marks a definite low point, even as one of the downs. But that's probably what's going to happen when you take a cast, including Geoffrey Rush, Jim Sturgess and Donald Sutherland, that mostly seems as though they don't belong on the same planet, let alone in the same film, stick them in a pointlessly convoluted plot that's ludicrously unbelievable from start to finish, and drench the whole lot in a hysterically screechy score from Ennio Morricone. The resulting film is such a campy mess that for a while it's possible to see it having some sort of life as a kitsch cultish artifact, like an overplotted TV movie from the eighties. But then it goes on for an interminable 124 minutes, and even that dubious hold on our interest is lost.
