Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: Be forewarned: “Interstellar” is brilliant, confusing, and long. And if you still insist on going be sure you see it in IMAX — a waste otherwise…”Big Hero 6” looks pleasant for both kids and adults. Television: So pleased that “The Newsroom” has returned for a final batch of episodes…I’ll watch anything with Bill Nighy: “Worricker” comes back to PBS on Sunday. Music: Tony Bennett, Gaga, Barbra, and Aretha are all doing well with new albums devoted to standards. Good for them. Now that I’ve said that may I please go back to Taylor Swift? Books: Amy Poehler’s “Yes Please” isn’t a patch on “Bossypants” by Amy’s best bud, Tina Fey…Last month’s death of Galway Kinnell has me reading his poems again. Sports: I love talking about football when people who don’t like football are in the room. Finally: Grey skies, damp air, short days: November, not April, is the cruelest month.
