Thor: The Dark World
The Marvel sequel that made more than $200 million—almost enough to cover the cost of maintaining Natalie Portman’s hair, which looks spectacular. Chris Hemsworth’s, however, suffered due to the budget drain. Still, decent flick. (Marvel/Disney)

Gravity
A doctor (Sandra Bullock) and an astronaut (George Clooney) are set adrift in space when their shuttle is destroyed; now, it’s a race against time before the oxygen runs out and/or someone asks “Why’s it called Gravity when there is none?” (Warner Bros.)

Hollywood & Wine
An nobody actress (Nicky Whelan) impersonates a famous movie star to help her boyfriend (Chris Kattan) get out of debt from a mobster (Chazz Palminteri). Also starring Pamela Anderson and other movie-star impersonators. (Green Apple)

L.A. Law: Season 1
The 1986 debut season, finally on ‘Merican DVD! The groundbreaking drama about Los Angeles attorneys with great suits inspired a generation to pursue legal careers, which in turn brought about the demise of the country. So, yay? (Shout Factory)

Legit: Season 1
The first season of Australian comic Jim Jefferies’ Legit starts off shaky, but gets better over the course of 13 episodes—hell, even DJ Qualls in a wheelchair couldn’t ruin it. Season 2 starts Feb. 26 on FXX; start looking for that channel now. (Fox)
