I’m out of the Covid woods with a totally normal temperature, but I’m not completely clean and safe to be around (not 100%). The wiser, more sensible thing to do, obviously, is to blow off today’s Avatar 2 screening in Manhattan. (AMC 42nd Street, 1 pm.)

Two days ago my mantra was “oh, Lord, please don’t let it be a wokefest.” Now it’s “oh, Lord, please don’t let the bad guys feel too rote, and please save us from too much of a CG overlay…a semblance of organic reality is absolutely required.”
