Go drown your Trump sorrows by seeing '1984' tonight

Less than a week after Donald Trump’s inauguration, “1984” sold out on Amazon. It was a little late; it would have been nice had people read George Orwell's dystopian classic before November. Still, things have chilled out a little since then, even as giant chunks of...

Geek Girl in Hollywood: The thing about Spider-Man

The thing about Spider-Man is that he’s us. He’s any of us. I watched the new trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” this morning and it’s more obvious in this version of the Marvel superhero than it’s been in any of the versions I’ve seen out there. Peter...
