Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

weekendMovies: Tim Burton brings us “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children.” But I’d rather see “American Honey.” TV/Streaming: HBO’s giant “Westworld” premieres on Sunday. On Saturday, “SNL” is back for a new season, with Margot Robbie as host and Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump. Music: John Prine, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton: Baby boomer icons with best-selling new albums for baby boomers. “When October Goes” is one of my favorite songs: I wish someone would write “When October Comes.” Books: Every time I see Alton Brown’s new cookbook, I think: “I’d eat Rachael Ray recipes before I’d eat Brown’s dreck! Sports: Big weekend for the Mets and their playoff hopes. Finally: Why is anybody surprised about the rise of Trump? The need for a Savior — promising salvation and bringing destruction — appears to be hard-wired into our species.
