Small-screen ‘Idol’ renders big-screen songs

Music and film -- my two favorite things. And that's what got combined on "American Idol," in its own peculiar, intriguing and slightly unsatisfying way.

Anna Undercover: Human Sacrifice

Human sacrifice is alive and well in the United States, and people really like it.
