Fresh off of their Best Picture winner “No Country for Old Men,” Joel and Ethan Coen return to the screen with a pitch-black comedy called “Burn After Reading,” starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, John Malkovich, Richard Jenkins, and the lynchpin of the whole movie, Frances McDormand. Are the Coen brothers up to their old tricks again, putting desperate characters through their bizarre twisted rollercoaster ride? Scene-Stealers mogul Eric Melin and guest host Kevin Quinn from KRBZ 96.5 the buzz have the scoop in this on-camera movie review of “Burn After Reading,” featuring clips from the movie!

Eric is the Editor-in-Chief of Scene-Stealers.com and writes the Screen Stealers column for The Pitch. He’s President of the KCFCC, and drummer for The Dead Girls and Ultimate Fakebook. He is also Air Guitar World Champion Mean Melin. Eric goes to 11. Follow him at:

I think JD’s beard is way better than Kevin’s. It looks like he shaved Gary Coleman’s “Different Strokes” era afro off and glued it to his face. I say shave it. Rock fist down. Aside from that it was a nice pinch hit. Great review, can’t wait to catch the release. And while Lebowski is no “Blood Simple” it’s still a fantastic, and fun film and a favortie in the Coen brother catalog.

It’s a fairly pointless comment to make but I will agree with Jeremy with concerns to JD’s beard.

Great review. Can’t wait to see it with my girlfriend. How’s it measure up as a date movie?

Depends on what kind of sense of humor your date has…there is some pretty crazy sex stuff in there that could be either uncomfortable or very kinky!

Brad Pitt can be so funny, as long as he’s not taking himself too seriously… in any case, it’s about time someone made good use of his habitually spastic arm movements
