Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: The latest “X Men,” called “Dark Phoenix,” is apparently lousy — bring back Hugh Jackman! “The Secret Life of Pets” is harmless if the kids need an outing. TV/Streaming: The Tony Awards are on Sunday and the only award I care about is Best Actress/Play: will Elaine May show up to collect it? Music: Amazon’s top-selling albums are Springsteen, Dylan, Queen, and Elton: further proof that only baby boomers spend money on music. Books: I’m re-reading Tanizaki’s 1945 novel “The Makioka Sisters” and marveling at the economy of the storytelling. Sports: The best thing about the NBA playoffs is that a Boston team can’t take the crown! Finally: “I like New York in June — how about you?”
