Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Jurassic World” if you must. “The King” is for Elvis fans and political junkies. TV/Streaming: A new season of “The Great British Baking Show” hits PBS on Friday. The big Chinese hit romance “Us and Them” is now on Netflix. Music: The Vaccines, an indie Brit band, have drawn comparisons to The Ramones. I don’t quite buy it, but I have enjoyed the driving beat of their videos, including “If You Wanna.” Books: Now that summer is officially here, it’s time to re-read a couple of doorstop-length classics: “War and Peace” and “Middlemarch,” probably. Sports: As von Clausewitz once said, the World Cup is a continuation of politics by other means. Finally: The hotter it gets, the more people flee the big city, and the more people who flee the big city the happier I am.
