Men in Black 3 (2012, PG-13)
Will Smith, Josh Brolin After a 10-year layoff, Agents J and K are back on the extraterrestrial beat, with Brolin doing a crotchety, spot-on Tommy Lee Jones impression. (Also on iTunes) A-

Step Up:Revolution (2012, PG-13)
Kathryn McCormick, Ryan Guzman Behold the power of dance! The moneymaker-shaking saga heads to Miami, where things get muy caliente … and surprisingly political. Didn’t see that coming. (Also on iTunes) C+

Sparkle (2012, PG-13)
Jordin Sparks, Whitney Houston A mostly forgettable remake of a beloved 1976 musical about aspiring R&B singers. Still, Whitney fans will want to check out the pop diva’s swan song. (Also on iTunes) B-

Zorro (1975, G)
Alain Delon, Stanley Baker Long before Antonio Banderas donned a debonair black cape, Delon — another Euro smoothie — swashbuckled with panache. Blu-ray debut. B

The Boys from Brazil (1978, R)
Gregory Peck, Laurence Olivier An elderly Nazi hunter ventures to South America, where the Third Reich’s mad scientist, Dr. Josef Mengele, is breeding a new Aryan race. It’s hooey. But delicious hooey. (Available on Netflix instant viewing) B

Coming Soon
The Dark Knight Rises (2012, PG-13)
Christian Bale, Tom Hardy Batman squares off against the muzzled maestro of mayhem, Bane, in Christopher Nolan’s Caped Crusader coda. B 12/4

Hope Springs (2012, PG-13)
Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones A complacent couple try to spice things up and reconnect with the help of a therapist. B+ 12/4
