Weekends in Connecticut

Better Weekends in Connecticut

My movie pick of the weekend is

SPACE JAM: A NEW LEGACY (2021)When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before. It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself.

So many live events this weekend – will Mother Nature play nice???
