Be glad their family isn't yours.


Drama

Rod Lott
In 1971, the all-American, Nixon-loving clan known as the Loud family made history without even trying. They just allowed cameras into their lives for six months, and the result was PBS' An American Family, television's first reality series.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Nic Cage's flaming-skull superhero gets 'Crank'ed.


Action

Rod Lott
Too bad Nicolas Cage had to sell off his comic book collection a while back, because he could've used a refresher course on Ghost Rider, the Marvel Comics character he’s now played twice. I'm in the minority that found the 2007 original to be deeply flawed fun, and I think the same of this sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, yet I still think about the lost opportunity both represent.

Too Big to Fail

Why greed is not good.


Drama

Rod Lott
