    Hollywood’s Grim Vision of the Future

    The final list of top Hollywood money makers for 2014 delivers some bad news for American culture: not one of these movies counts as even vaguely original or realistic. Seven of the big ten are either sequels, or remakes, or both; five are based on comic books; two more—the delightful…
