At a recent screening of “Deadpool 2,” the audience didn’t get up when the end credits came up, patiently sitting through the scrolling names of visual effects supervisors and lighting specialists. Real “Deadpool” fans know to stick around until the ushers toss them out.

Jane Fonda said recently that “Book Club” was the most fun she’s ever had making a movie. She was ostensibly talking about getting to know her castmates — namely Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen — but may also have been referring to the wine. There is lots and lots of fine wine in “Book Club” — in fact, it seems like nobody’s allowed to have a conversation after 4 p.m. without an oversized glass of Chardonnay.

Predicting May weather in Waco for the annual Pints in the Park is a gambler’s game, but the remaining elements of Saturday’s edition — Texas barbecue, beer and live honky-tonk music — surely rate as a Texas trifecta.

When Melissa McCarthy, as the newly divorced, 40-something mom Deanna in “Life of the Party,” decides to re-enroll in college, my seatmate at a recent screening turned to me with a question about McCarthy’s choice of major: “What the heck is she going to do with a degree in archaeology?”

The title character of Jason Reitman’s “Tully” descends not from the clouds, carried by an umbrella in the wind, but glides cheerfully through the front door on a black night. She arrives just as Marlo (Charlize Theron), the mother of two plus an unplanned-for newborn, is reaching the limits of exhaustion.

The Central Texas Choral Society will do its part to mark the centennial of American composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein by performing his “Chichester Psalms” in its spring concert Monday night at Truett Seminary’s Powell Chapel.

When the band Honest Men opens for Kings Kaleidoscope Sunday night at Common Grounds, they’ll know the territory: The band started three years ago at Baylor University and Common Grounds was a basic venue.

Live music and award recognitions combine Friday night at the Music Association of Central Texas’ annual Groovy Awards, held at Lee Lockwood Library and Museum.

The band names Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and California Honeydrops offer no clues to the style of music they perform — horn-driven swing and infectious rhythm-and-blues/soul, respectively — but both suggest an easygoing, fun vibe for their audiences.

Texas country star Pat Green comes back to Waco’s The Backyard April 27 with a new album of his songs. That’s not unusual, but who’s singing them is: a Who’s Who of Texas country.

Viewers may be forgiven for being confused by Wes Anderson’s movies. Constructed with dollhouse fastidiousness, their hyper-symmetrical, squared-off tableaus dressed with gorgeous textures and color palettes — and their clipped dialogue delivered with deadpan sincerity — they depict a universe with only glancing resemblance to the real world.

Texas country singer Cody Johnson looks at Saturday’s concert at the Extraco Events Center where he’s headlining a lineup of Mark Chesnutt, William Michael Morgan and Shotgun Rider, and thinks how far he’s come in Waco.

Nashville country singer Maggie Rose has been playing and performing for more than 10 years, but Thursday night marks something new: her first show in Waco.

Spring weather is bringing more than flowers and Waco music fans might want to stock up on insect repellent with regional and national acts scheduled for outdoor night concerts, many set along the Brazos River’s stretch through Waco.
