Jeff Garlin’s credits run from the notable (Toy Story 3) to the crucial (Arrested Development). He’s a versatile man, and no matter where you turn your eyes, he’s proving it. Tonight’s show is stand-up comedy; just a man, a microphone,…

Shut Up, Already

V for Vendetta (Warner Bros.) Illustrator David Lloyd calls this adaptation of the comic he made with writer Alan Moore "very good" -- so why did Moore beg to have his name removed? The intentions are noble, sure; name another…

New releases available this week

The Blues Brothers 25th Anniversary Edition (Universal Studios Home Video) Dan Aykroyd and John Goodman's modern-day revival of the Blues Brothers is less a stroke of comedy genius than a dose of karaoke night at Hooters. Fight off those thoughts…
