Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: I didn’t think “Dunkirk” was as spectacular as the critics’ hive mind is saying, but it’s most definitely worth seeing. I won’t buy a ticket but you can be damn sure when it’s on HBO I’ll watch the raunchy comedy “Girls Trip.” TV/Streaming: On Friday, “The Great British Baking Show” does desserts: yum. “Ballers” and “Insecure” return on Sunday. Music: Rob Halford of “Judas Priest” is my rock god, and my friend Ethan Silverman has put together a terrific video game based on Priest. Info here. Books: When I read Madeline L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time” I had the same reaction Dorothy Parker had to Winnie the Pooh: I just wanted to “fwow up.” Joshua Cohen’s “Moving Kings: A Novel” is being heaped with attention from prestigious reviewers. Sports: Philadelphia Soul is having a brilliant season in arena football. Finally: You won’t ever hear me complain about the summer heat: the hotter it is, the more I see of hot girls and guys.
