... with THE RASCALS!  I was delighted to rediscover one of my fave clips, their cover of "Mickey's Monkey" in a medley with "Turn On Your Love Light."  A second live medley includes a pair of Rascals originals, "I've Been Lonely Too Long" and "Come On Up." Plus, a copy of "A Girl Like You" has returned to the Tube, as well as "Groovin'" and  "How Can I Be Sure?"  Round it out with the live-instudio version of the obligatory "Good Lovin'," and the early "Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore" from Hullaballoo.

THE FIRST ATOMIC BOMB WAS DROPPED ON HIROSHIMA 68 years ago today. The act that ushered in the nuclear age, but also helped end World War II, still stokes controversy. Three men involved in the attack o­n Hiroshima share their memories with the BBC. Film showing the effects of the attack was classified for decades, as were the complete (unredacted) "Magic" military intercepts, which tend to show Japan was not about to surrender. Those interested in a relatively neutral view of the events leading to the bombing could do worse than 1995's Hiroshima, a joint Canadian-Japanese production for Showtime.  Out-of-print, and costly.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation tops the chart with 56MM, which may not sound like a blockbuster, but it's more than the 40-50MM tracking estimates and more than the combined limited and wide releaes of the last installment, which ultimately grossed 700MM worldwide. With great reviews and and an "A-" Cinemascore, this looks like another big moneymaker.  Including the underrated Edge of Tomorrow (awful title), Tom Cruise seems to be getting his groove back by making good choices in projects, directors, and casts.  He may still be crazy, but he's making it work for him.  The Vacation reboot placed with 21MM; unlike Cruise, this has bad reviews and word-of-mout, but will likely profit against a 31MM budget.  Ant-Man shows with 12.6MM on a 49 percent drop; not bad considering the debut of Rogue Nation, though the relative failure of Pixels helps also.  It's about 3/4 of the way to profit in theaters and will need help overseas.  Minions tales the fourth slot with 12.MM on a 47 percent drop and has a worldwide take of 854MM against a 74MM budget. Pixels rounds out the Top 5 with 10.4MM on a 57 percent drop; it's unlikely to profit before the home market.
