The Washington Post has compiled a list of entertainment opportunities out now:

TOP PICK

“The Dark Knight Rises,” on DVD and Blu-ray

The final installment in director Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” trilogy didn’t quite hit the box-office numbers of the second, but critics loved it, including The Post’s Ann Hornaday. She said: “Nolan, together with the team he has been working with so profitably since 2005’s ‘Batman Begins,’ has made a completely satisfying movie with ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ one steeped enough in self-contained mythology to reward hard-core fans while giving less invested viewers a rousing, adroitly executed piece of popcorn entertainment.” Blu-ray extras are plentiful, including a making-of featurette and a look at the Batmobiles over the years.
