Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: For superhero fans, “Thor: The Dark World” is the ticket. “The Book Thief” should attract the arthouse crowd. Television: Sondheim’s “Company,” with Neil Patrick Harris, hits PBS on Friday. Also on Friday: Anthony Weiner is a guest on Bill Maher’s show. On Sunday, Rob Lowe stars as JFK in “Killing Kennedy.” Music: Couldn’t be happier that Arcade Fire’s “Reflektor” tops the CD charts. My Christmas-loving friends recommend Kelly Clarkson’s “Wrapped in Red.” Books: I have too many doubts about Halperin and Heilemann’s omniscient method to want to read their 2012 campaign book, “Double Down.” Sports: All roads lead to the Chiefs-Broncos showdown on November 17th. Until then, all other games are a lead-up. Finally: The advice I’m trying hard to practice this week: Be a volunteer, not a victim.
