Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: You know it’s a slow weekend at the multiplex when the long version of “Spiderman: Far from Home” is the top offering. TV/Streaming: Lots of marathons this weekend, including “The Simpsons” on FXX and “The Golden Girls” on Bravo…On Sunday during the day, PBS broadcasts the Met Opera’s stunning production of Poulenc’s “Dialogues of the Carmelites.” Music: It’s Caribbean Carnival weekend in Brooklyn, so time to break out the calypso. Start here. Books: The new novels that supposedly are must-reads are “The Nickel Boys” by Colson Whitehead and “Overthrow” by Caleb Crain. Sports: It’s the countdown to NFL season kickoff on Sept. 5, which means I will ramp up my consumption of REAL football — I’m talking about soccer. Finally: The more people who leave NYC on holiday weekends the happier I am.
