Simon Pegg had some strong words this week about the “infantilization” of our society caused by today’s blockbusters, and not all of his fans took his quotes kindly. But does Pegg have a point? We discuss the state of geekdom along with all the other top stories of the week, including Disney’s latest live-action picture, trailers for Pan, Amy, and Steve Jobs, and new projects about The Girl on the Train and Brian Epstein. Plus, give all your money to our WTF of the Week, Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves. Find us on iTunes and send comments and questions to newseditor ‘at’ popoptiq.com.
