in honor of all those sweaty, surly, hard-working, knife-wielding food whores out there, and the filmmakers brave enough to feature them prominently in their flicks, Scene-Stealers is offering up an arbitrary ranking of the best chefs in motion picture history.
Red 2 may have some fun moments, but the trainwreck of a sequel simply can’t hold enough good scenes together to keep the film from floundering through most of its nearly two-hour running time.
Trevan and Eric work through Amour, Side Effects, Identity Thief and Warm Bodies while Trey sweats it out boating in some tropical paradise.
In the end Side Effects isn’t a magnum opus. It doesn’t stand in the same class as Traffic or Out Of Sight, but it does speak to Soderbergh’s talents that the film not only works, but is an overall solid thriller.
Eric, Trey and Trevan talk about two new releases (Mama and Broken City), discuss disappointments and pleasant surprises of The Golden Globes and The Critics Choice Awards before speculating on The Oscars, and finally recap some of their favorite moments from 2012 in film.

Revisionist rock history. Absurd Musical Numbers. Tom Cruise serenading Malin Ackerman‘s ass. Even Bryan Cranston shows up in his tighty-whities. Rock Of Ages does indeed have something for everyone. This week Eric, Trevan, Clair and guest Alan Rapp talk about the ’80s music homage/parody/something-or-other. Subscribe to The Scene-Stealers Podcast on iTunes or our RSS.
Rock of Ages is a movie that imagines a mythical time and place as seen through the eyes of an audience who was perhaps only able to experience love, heartbreak, and hedonism through the lyrics of 80s hair rock/pop songs.
Two gritty docudramas make their way to Blu-ray and DVD, but each take a different approach to worthwhile bonus content. This review is of the new Rachel Weisz thriller ‘The Whistleblower,’ and Steven Soderbergh’s Oscar-winning ‘Traffic.’
