THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

... with GRAM PARSONS! As a member of both The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers, and as a solo artist, Parsons anticipated the so-called country rock of the 1970s and the alt-country movement that began around 1990. There is not a lot of GP video floating around, but "Christine's Tune" is a good place to start, though the video for "Older Guys" is great because someone made them go out to christen Judge Smails' sloop. The Hell's Angels make an unfortunate cameo in the clip of "Six Days o­n the Road" from the infamous Altamont festival in 1969. The posthumous video for "Sin City" is nice also. BONUS: Dwight Yoakum covers "Wheels" at a Parsons tribute concert. DOUBLE BONUS: Frequent duet partner Emmylou Harris covers "Return of the Grievous Angel" with alt-country icon Ryan Adams (and Buddy Miller o­n bass) at a different tribute.

SONGS OF THIS SUMMER, according to SPIN.

ECLIPSE SONGS: Ten of The Best.

 

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Hitman's Bodyguard tops the chart with 21.6MM, well ahead of industry predictions in the mid-teens. Annabelle: Creation places with 15.5MM on a 56 percent drop that's not bad for a horror film. Logan Lucky shows with 8MM, which is a bit disappointing, even against a 29MM budget. Dunkirk takes the fourth slot with 6.7MM and approaches 400MM worldwide. The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature rounds out the top five as it falls 39 percent to 5.1MM.

LOGAN LUCKY: The theft in this movie get called the "Hillbilly Heist" and "Ocean's 7-11," both of which would have been an apt title for this latest film ofrom Oceans' director Steven Soderbergh.  Like the Ocean's, Logan Lucky assembles a fine ensemble cast in service of a smart, twisty script that walks a fine line between respect and mockery of its Appalachian milieu. A comedy for our times.

JERRY LEWIS, the comedian and filmmaker who was adored by many, disdained by others, but unquestionably a defining figure of American entertainment in the 20th century, died on Sunday morning at his home in Las Vegas. He was 91. I will always remember him for his personal craziness during the final hours of MDA telethons in the 1970s, and for a riveting performance in The King of Comedy, which suggested a vast, untapped capacity for drama.

DICK GREGORY, the pioneering black satirist who transformed cool humor into a barbed force for civil rights in the 1960s, then veered from his craft for a life devoted to protest and fasting in the name of assorted social causes, health regimens and conspiracy theories, died Saturday in Washington. He was 84.
