Movie to watch: Warcraft

Before you mock it for its "meathead orcs" or the fact that it's based on an aging video game franchise, you should give Warcraft a chance. As Globe film critic Kate Taylor writes, British director Duncan Jones is able to combine fantasy fiction with an "alluring vertigo of gameplay." Read the review.

One film that's sure to be a box-office hit this weekend is The Conjuring 2, the sequel to director James Wan's supernatural-horror film of 2013. "Moviegoers should know this isn't a horror film made just for teenagers – though they'll be on the edge of their knapsacks, all right – but for adults as well," Globe reporter Brad Wheeler writes. Read the review.

Some food for thought: "Audiences telling artists what to do? Welcome to the Age of Entitlement"

Globe film editor Barry Hertz writes about the complicated relationship between Hollywood studios and audiences, and how social media has led to the rise of the Age of Entitlement, where "audiences expect not only to be heard by those responsible for today's culture, but also to be placated, soothed and obeyed." Read the column.

Book to read: Do Not Say We Have Nothing

Arguably one of Canada's most talented novelists, Madeleine Thien's latest book, Do Not Say We Have Nothing, is an intergenerational story going back as far as the 1940s in China to present-day Vancouver. It focuses on the narrator's father – a pianist who died by suicide in Hong Kong, his mentor and his mentor's cousin. David B. Hobbs writes, "[It] is thoroughly researched but without the burden of trivia, both riveting and lyrical." Read the review.

Recipe to cook: Jamie Oliver's herring ceviche

If you're looking for an appetizer to serve this weekend, try Jamie Oliver's herring ceviche. For those who haven't tried ceviche before, as Oliver describes, it's "a South American way of semi-cooking fish or meat by using acid from citrus fruit." It makes an excellent pre-starter that everyone will want to sample. Follow the recipe.

Beverage to sample: Rosé

Take a note from Oscar-winning actor, and sometimes singer, Jamie Foxx – pink is in. As Globe wine columnist Beppi Crosariol points out, Foxx was sipping on pink champagne while watching the Toronto Raptors play the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals last month. Crosariol suggests rosé for those seeking a go-to refreshment this summer as it "offers cheerful flavours that can be reminiscent of tart berries, watermelon, stone fruit and citrus." Read the column.
