1. "Top Gun: Limited 3D Edition"

Surprisingly deep aerial thrills in the new Blu-ray 3-D transformation. An upgraded surround-sound mix helps. (Paramount)

2. "Jack Reacher"

Tom Cruise plays a death-defying, lone-wolf maverick here, too, with an even better (sleuthing) story line and spectacular car chases. (Paramount)

3. "Trouble with the Curve"

Baseball scout (Clint Eastwood) in the autumn of his years bonds with game-lovin' daughter (Amy Adams). And you with yours? (Warner Bros.)

4. "Real Steel"

Silly premise, sharp execution in this rock-'em, sock-'em futuristic "Rocky," where giant robots pound it out in the ring. Blu-ray transfer makes the most of computer-generated effects. (Touchstone)

5. "Argo"

Amazing (because it's real) saga of the ingenious CIA plot to rescue Americans in nutty ol' Iran. (Warner Bros.)
