Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: Just me, or does “Mortdecai” look pretty bad? Xavier Dolan’s “Mommy” has been doing well on the festival circuit. Television: I hate it when “The Good Wife” no sooner comes back then it goes away again. While waiting for your next fix, catch up with “Empire” and “Broad City” and the free-streaming “Transparent.” Music: Bob Dylan’s new album is called “Shadows in the Night” and it’s all Sinatra covers. Listen to one here. Books: I didn’t read Edward P. Jones’s massively acclaimed historical novel “The Known World” when it came out in 2003. I’m remedying my neglect now. Sports: The NFL Pro Bowl will be a snooze, so I may be forced into watching the Knicks this weekend. Finally: Whenever a kid calls me “sir,” I want to turn around and see whom he’s referring to.
