Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: It’s all about “The Hunger Games” this weekend, unless you desire to catch up with more serious fare like “The Theory of Everything” and “Nightcrawler.” Television: A friend of mine wants his tombstone to read: “He never saw CATS.” He’ll have to avoid PBS on Friday…If I had a nickel for everyone who urges me to start watching “Homeland” again I could almost afford Christmas presents. Music: Who the hell is Pentatonix?… Why did Old Horse Face never record a holiday album? Books: “Fire Shut Up in My Bones,” by New York Times columnist Charles Blow, is sensitively written. Sports: I can’t keep up with the weekly upsets in college football. Finally: Did you survive the cold this week by buying a plane ticket to a warm destination?
