Your Weekend: LemonWade Recommends

Movies: “Flight” is suspenseful and well-told, and Denzel gives a compelling performance, but I can’t say I much enjoyed the movie. Save your money for “Skyfall” next week. Television: Check out the Hurricane Sandy telethon on Friday. On Sunday, I can’t believe it’s already the finale for “Call the Midwife.” Music: People loved Bruno Mars on SNL last month, and his single, “Locked Out Of Heaven,” is selling well on iTunes. The grown-up charts are already dominated by Christmas fare. Books: Even if you’ve avoided the movie version, “Cloud Atlas” is well worth buying in book form. Its author, David Mitchell, is a word wizard. Sports: The Brooklyn Nets had to postpone their home opener to Saturday. If the Knicks keep sucking I may transfer my allegiance. Finally: I was spared by Sandy, but I appreciate all the people who checked up on me.
