In the past several weeks, many Viewpoint writers criticized several of Bob Oates' columns in The Times. I have to disagree with Bob's critics, as I find his follow-up analysis of the weekend games informative and insightful.

Two maverick cops and a singing nun carried the day at the nation's movie theaters during the weekend, while some in Hollywood fretted over the future of the big-budgeted romantic epic "Far and Away," starring Tom Cruise.

With "Lethal Weapon 3" leading the way, followed closely by the sci-fi thriller "Alien 3," movie grosses soared to record levels during the Friday-through-Monday Memorial Day weekend.

People came by the hundreds, as if to the site of a plane crash or cruise missile attack, standing there in parkas and boots in the dark frozen streets and fields next to a half-built and abandoned housing tract on the outskirts of Lancaster. They stared patiently at the "Lethal Weapon 3" film set, surrealistically bright under the distant massed light banks, waiting, waiting, waiting to see a movie company create a firestorm in a subdivision, a holocaust in their hometown.
