A Looked-Forward-To Weekend

Wednesday May 9, 9:36 p.m.

Especially with all of the arduousness of the past 3 days, I will be looking forward to a relaxing weekend. With Mother's Day coming up, my brother has invited the rest of us up to his place for a BBQ, weather permitting. And The Anime King has got plans in the work to catch "The Avengers" on Sunday.

That movie has already become the big blockbuster to beat at this early stage of the season. Thumping "Harry Potter"s opening last year by nearly $40 million, "The Avengers"racked up a cool $200 million last weekend for the record. "Hunger Games"? What's that? Nice to see a cinematic version of a sum that has become more than its individual parts. Even "The Dark Knight Rises"is taking pause. Good thing that Chris Nolan's final part of his "Batman"trilogy isn't coming out until late July.
