*** (out of four) Ignoring the fact that very little happens in a lot of those movies, “Twilight” fans will be bored with “Only Lovers Left Alive.” The vampire story stars Tilda Swinton (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) and Tom Hiddleston (“Thor”) and is written/directed by Jim Jarmusch (“Coffee and Cigarettes”), which should answer the question: “Why might I be bored?” To call it a thriller would be a stretch; to call it a drama would be generous. Slowly and sometimes intoxicatingly, Jarmusch uses immortal blood-suckers as the setup for a darkly...

I'm a single mom and had been out of the dating scene since my youngest (now 10) was born. I recently became involved with a man that introduced me to fisting. I have to admit, though, albeit strange and new, it was more pleasurable than his penis. I reached a more intense orgasm with his fist. Two-part question: Is fisting common or new? And why does he get mad at me after I've had a fist orgasm? It's not my fault his fist pleases me more. Thank you. You know, in all my years of advice-giving, I've heard some pretty strange things, but this is the first instance I've encountered where a man was...

Many people think Tilda Swinton is strange. By phone, the "Only Lovers Left Alive" star both saluted that perception ("It's ridiculous and hilarious ... it means I can pass unnoticed, and I'm thrilled") and offered three things she thinks are strange: 1. "The strangest part I ever played was that of a corporate lawyer [in "Michael Clayton," for which she won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar]. That was pretty exotic. That felt like a magical beast, and it's strange to imagine that those people actually do exist.

Start your trip with a pre-game bite and pint at Bangers & Lace (1670 W. Division St. 773-252-6499). This sausage and-beer bar serves a mean corn dog and fries to help soak up one of the 20-plus craft brews on draft. Next, head over to Milwaukee Avenue and chill out with a few tries at the old-school video games at Emporium Arcade Bar (1366 N. Milwaukee Ave. 773-697-7922). Couldn't hit the Donkey Kong high score? Soothe your sorrows with craft beers from breweries such as Dogfish Head, Rogue and Two Brothers.

Baby (Jennifer Grey) famously lost her virginity to Patrick Swayze's character in "Dirty Dancing. " The geeky freshman played by Anthony Michael Hall lusted after Samantha (Molly Ringwald), who's a virgin saving herself for Jake Ryan in "Sixteen Candles. " And friends of Andy (Steve Carell) in "40 Year Old Virgin" try to help him do the deed. Sex has been a part of movies for decades. But when exactly did the act of losing one's virginity go from being a taboo topic to becoming the central storyline?

There are two types of drinking: Drinking to get drunk, and drinking to enjoy flavor. I have certainly done the former (file under: awkward weddings, boring family gatherings and most parties before I turned 23), but now I find myself mostly drinking because I enjoy whatever beer, wine or cocktail I've ordered. That's at the root of my recent conundrum. My drink of choice usually is craft beer, but lately I've noticed a disturbing problem: A lack of session beer on bar menus. Session beers are what they sound like: Lower-alcohol (5...
