Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: I’m still catching up with last year’s movies: “Cold War” is on the top of my list. And “Holmes & Watson,” which looks hilariously awful. TV/Streaming: “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” is now on Netflix — also “Pulp Fiction” and “Babel.” Music: Jon Batiste’s “Hollywood Africans” deserves its best-selling status. If you want to watch a true star in action, watch Judy Garland’s 1962 performance on Jack Paar. Books: Jane Sherron De Hart’s biography of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is absorbing reading — I learned many things about the Supreme Court justice. Sports: Yesterday’s Premier League match between Man City and Liverpool was so good I don’t need to watch any other athletics all weekend. Finally: If the winter cold’s got you down, just remember: the days are getting longer.
