Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: Will Smith’s latest attempt to foist his brats on us is called “After Earth.” “Before Midnight” is probably the best new movie out there. Television: Catch “Mad Men” and “Game of Thrones” in their final weeks. “The Killing” starts season three on Sunday, but apart from the acting the reviews have been downbeat. Music: Still waiting for a better summer single than Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Oh, and, by the way, does anyone seriously think Pharrell ever has trouble getting lucky? Books: George Packer’s new nonfiction collection, “The Unwinding,” is superb, especially his takedown of Oprah. Sports: Yanks just lost four to the hapless Mets, and I don’t expect Boston this weekend to be any easier. Finally: Haven’t these first few summer days been glorious? Or do you wilt in the heat?
