The weekend of April 13 did not offer anything that would lure me out of my house; I briefly thought about seeing the new “Hellboy,” but I resisted the temptation. An earlier version, with Ron Perlman, was quite enough to satisfy my curiosity. I never followed the comic book in its heyday and have never felt any pangs of remorse.
I didn’t want to waste the weekend with housekeeping, so I consoled myself by rewatching “The Sting.” It holds up surprisingly well. It’s probably good that I am saving a few dollars since I will probably find myself forced to see “Avengers: Endgame” more than once. It’s going to be a long two weeks.
