New on DVD & Blu-ray "The Apparition" What's It About? Ashley Greene and Tom Felton star in a schlocky, predictable and neutered ghost story. This is not the "Twilight" / "Harry potter" crossover we asked for. See It or Skip It: Skip it.
"Lawless" What's It About? Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy star in a true-story gangster tale of bootlegging brothers who cross the paths of mobsters (Gary Oldman) and corrupt cops (Guy Pearce). It looks like a gangster movie, but it's mainly superficial pulp. See It or Skip It: See it, but don't expect a classic.
"Men in Black 3" (Friday, November 30) What's It About? Will Smith returns as Agent J in a time-traveling adventure that teams him up with a young Agent K (Josh Brolin). It's better than "MIB II" but that isn't saying much, and it still pales in comparison to the original 1997 blockbuster. See It or Skip It: See it, if you're a Will Smith completist.
"Sparkle" What's It About? Jordin Sparks stars in a "Dreamgirls"-style drama of three sisters, whose musical careers are challenged by the pratfalls of fame. It's filled with cliches and the story has been done before (and better); the most interesting aspect of the movie is the fact that it stars the late Whitney Houston. See It or Skip It: See it for Whitney, but that's it.
"Step Up Revolution" What's It About? They made another one of these? See It or Skip It: Skip it.
