Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “The Gentlemen” looks deadly, but it has a top-notch cast: Matthew McC, Colin Farrell, and Charlie Hunnam. Oh, and Lady Mary (Michele Dockery). TV/Streaming: Hulu has a new Josh Groban concert, Apple-plus has a new Lady Gaga project, and PBS has yet another episode of “Sanditon.” Music: Eminem has a new album, Ozzy Osbourne’s Parkinson’s diagnosis has put his album on the charts, and the Grammys are this weekend. Books: Amitav Ghosh’s trilogy — “Sea of Poppies,” “River of Smoke,” and “Flood of Fire,” is the best historical fiction I’ve read in a very long time. Sports: The NFL’s pro bowl has become such a throwaway event that it’s scheduled the same weekend as the Grammys. Finally: Unlike Congress, the Presidency at least has (consecutive) term limits. I hope.
