KISS off

Off their rocker, that is.

Just the other day, a friend and I were discussing (very briefly, lest you think I’m a nerd, which I am) the infamous telefilm of 1978, “KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park.”

And then this cover to “Archie Comics #627” hits my inbox. I smell a belated and equally cheesy sequel. —Rod Lott

The Phantom of Hollywood

Andrew Lloyd Webber spectacle < made-for-TV treatment.


Rod Lott
So simple is the story of Gaston Leroux's 1911 novel, "The Phantom of the Opera," that it continues to be remade on stage and screen. More interesting, however, are not its adaptations, but those that tweak the setting to more contemporary, even oddball venues.

The Lost Future

It should be ‘Lost’ forever.


Rod Lott
Sean Bean's at the center of a critically acclaimed, made-for-television effort that has him and his crew using many an antiquating weapon, from swords to bows.

Too Big to Fail

Why greed is not good.


Rod Lott
Whereas the 2010 documentary Inside Job gave a big-picture view at how Wall Street nearly eroded the American economy, the HBO telefilm Too Big to Fail dramatizes the behind-the-scenes dealings.
