Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Fifty Shades of Grey” if you want erotic explosions, and “The Kingsman: The Secret Service” if you want literal explosions. Television: “Better Call Saul,” on Sunday, is a bit depressing but very well-done and worth your viewing time. Also on Sunday: the “Saturday Night Live” 40th-anniversary special. Music: What a surprise! Sam Smith’s “In the Lonely Hour” and Beck’s “Morning Phase” have benefited from taking top honors at the Grammys. Books: I finally caught up with “All the Light We Cannot See,” Anthony Doerr’s novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France. Recommended. Sports: The NBA All-Star game takes place this weekend in New York, which is about the only pro-basketball glory the city will have seen in quite some time. Finally: If you don’t have a valentine on Saturday, you always have LemonWade.
