Kitchen Nightmares Season 3
Sloppy restaurateurs, take cover. Chef Gordon Ramsay is back for another round of sniffing out rogue eateries and tongue-lashing their staff into serving up better fare. Premieres Tuesday on Fox at 8 p.m. E.T.

Sundance Film Festival
So what if it takes place in faraway Utah? If you are a film fan, you will be keeping an eye on this indie showcase. Howl (starring James Franco as Allen Ginsberg) and Restrepo (a documentary on Afghanistan) open the fest this year. There’s plenty of Canadian fare too, including Grown Up Movie Star and Splice, featuring Sarah Polley.

Dark Void
The jetpack’s alive and well. In Capcom’s new sci-fi title, humans battle aliens in an alternate world with a little help from Nikola Tesla’s uplifting invention. The game flies high on the strength of its aerial battles, which takes the find-cover-then-shoot style of Gears of War into the third dimension.

Creation
You could go to theatres for Extraordinary Measures (if you are eyeing The Tooth Fairy there is little hope for you) this week. But you’d probably be better served with this little film about Charles Darwin and how his evolutionary ideas took their toll on his family. Starring real life husband and wife Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly.

Three Days Before The Shooting: Ralph Ellison
When the acclaimed African-American author (Invisible Man) died in 1994, he left behind a 2,000-page unfinished manuscript. The writing was condensed to 368 pages in 1999 for the posthumous novel, Juneteenth. Finally, Modern Library is putting things right by publishing the mammoth work in its entirety.

Transference: Spoon
They were listed as Metacritic’s most acclaimed band of the decade. They even made it to the Top 10 with their last album, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. Heck, can you even call the Austin, Tex., band indie any more? But they might just reclaim their alt-rock status with their latest effort – an off-kilter take on their own perfect-pop template.

SAG Awards
Perhaps the only Avatar-free awards gala you’ll see this year. The Screen Actor’s Guild honours its members for their thespian skills tomorrow with Inglourious Basterds, Precious and Up In The Air leading the race with three nominations each.
