Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

weekendMovies: Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge” has gotten some powerful reviews, but I can’t watch all that bloody gore. The arthouse movie of the moment is “Loving.” Television/Streaming: Netflix drops its first season of “The Crown.” A selection of Alvin Ailey’s choreography is presented Friday on PBS. Music: Kenny Chesney shouts a “Cosmic Hallelujah.” They’re still unearthing Callas-Garland ballads. Trippy! Books: My problem with the Wimpy Kid series is the suggestion that only wimpy kids read. The appeal of Anthony Bourdain completely eludes me. Sports: Still thrilled by the Cubs’ win! Finally: Why does it feel that once the election’s over it’s not really over?
