BIF #3: Hambuster

Burgerac



Hitherto on Burgerac, we've posted clips from Falling Down and Pulp Fiction which feature or mention burgers. But in this short animated film called Hambuster, we've found a film that doesn't just mention burgers in passing. Oh dear me no. In Hambuster, burgers form the central pillar of a frankly terrifying plot...

Think the film is good? Well made? Well check it out – it was made by five students (Paul Alexandre, Maxime Cazaux, Dara Cazamea, Romain Delaunay, and Bruno Ortolland) at Superinfocom Arles in France. Amazeballs! Well done guys!

Limited edition Byron burger: Royale with Cheese

Burgerac


This isn't a review, merely a heads up that this Friday (tomorrow) London restaurant chain Byron will launch a new limited edition burger across it's various branches "to celebrate the forthcoming wedding of Wills and Kate"...

The Royale with Cheese is a double cheeseburger comprising two six ounce patties and that most tasty of British cheeses, Montgomery Cheddar (which, regular readers will remember, is the one of the ingredients that helps make Shoreditch's Rivington Grill burger so damn tasty). It's served in Byron's standard bun with lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickle and mayonaise and priced at a regal £10.75.

Of course the name of this limited edition burger doesn't really make us think of the Royal Family (thankfully), but instead conjures up the scene from Quentin Tarantino's 1994 cult classic, Pulp Fiction, in which hitmen Vincent and Jules discuss Dutch law as it relates to marijuana, and the "little differences" between US and European culture – as observed by Vincent during a visit to a Parisian branch of Mc Donalds...



The Royale with Cheese will be available from April 15 through to May 2. Visit byronhamburgers.com to find your nearest Byron restaurant

BIF #1: Double Whammy Burger with Cheese

Burgerac


This is the first in a series of Burgers In Films (BIF) posts where we dig out great movie moments featuring burgers or burger-related awesomeness. Remember this burger from Falling Down?


I've been thinking a lot recently about formulating an equation that perfectly describes how Hype and resulting High Expectation directly relates to and effects the potential to enjoy a particular Experience. However, all this thinking has made it very clear to me that maths - and equation formulating in particular - really isn't my thing. So I abandoned hope of a mathematically perfect eureka moment and instead headed to YouTube and revisited the awesome burger joint scene from Falling Down (1993, dir. Joel Schumacher), in which the increasingly disillusioned William Foster (played brilliantly by Michael Douglas) has some beef with Whammy Burger's attitude to customer service, before questioning the difference (with a gun in his hand) between the limp, pancake-like Double Whammy Burger with Cheese in his hand, and the considerably plumper looking burger that appears in the product shot of said burger on the menu...




I loved this movie when I saw it in the cinema back in 1993 as a student. And guess what? I knew absolutely nothing about it when I took my seat. It was the first film in an off-the-cuff, double-bill cinema trip with my then girlfriend. After Falling Down (my choice - Michael Douglas was holding a gun in the poster) it was the lady's turn to select a film – which was another film I knew absolutely nothing about: some lame-sounding Christian Slater film called True Romance...
