This Single Movie Scene Will Make You Crave A Slice Of Pizza SO BAD

Cheese-Pizza-Stk-01

Everyone’s got that one movie scene that makes their stomach growl. I sure do. It’s that one moment that, now matter how full you are, makes you crave a food so desperately that you won’t stop until you satiate your cravings.

For me, that scene comes from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze.

You won’t have to sit through the entire movie to find it either (not that you shouldn’t, because it’s an absolute classic). The scene I’m talking about takes place one minute into the movie.

Here it is:

Nothing beats that opening montage of New Yorkers happily eating pizza slices. It’s probably the reason why I grew up loving pizza and Ninja Turtles so much.

A close second is the sandwich-making scene in Spanglish.

This Restaurant Chain Created A Burger For TERMINATOR GENISYS

Red-Robin-Genisys-Burger

The fifth installment in the Terminator film series, Terminator Genisys, is hitting cinemas soon. Red Robin is pairing up with with the machines from Skynet to create a new burger that’s supposed to terminate your hunger.

Get it?

Red Robin’s new Genisys Burger features jalapeño aioli, roasted jalapeños, Pepper Jack cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, avocados and bacon. It’s topped with a jalapeño-cornmeal bun. Like the robots from the future, expect this burger to pack a lot of unnecessary heat.

Still sounds bomb though.

Available beginning June 15, the burger will be on Red Robin menus for a limited time. Probably just as long as the new Terminator film will be around. Terminator Genisys hits theaters July 1.

This Is What A Wes Anderson Bar Would Look Like

wesand-cafe

Director Wes Anderson is often praised for his unique visual approaches when creating movies. Anderson is best known for films like The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Royal Tennenbaums and Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. We’ve joked around at the office that the minute they announced a Wes Anderson theme park, we’d be the first ones in line.

Turns out that dream isn’t TOO far off. At least, for now, there’s a Wes Anderson bar out there.

Designed by Anderson himself, Milan’s Bar Luce has all the quirks that the director is known for. Sure, there’s no anthropomorphic foxes for Bill Murray in a beanie, but it definitely looks like something right out of an Anderson movie set.

The bar is reminiscent of Italy in the ’50s albeit with Anderson’s signature style.

Pizza Hut Teases Cheesy Bites Pizzas Coming July 7

cheesy-bites-7

In honor of those pizza loving reptile heroes, aka, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pizza Hut is advertising new Cheesy Bites Pizzas that are set to debut July 7. As we reported last Fall, these Cheesy Bites Pizzas replace the crust with mini crust bites filled with cheese.

The official Pizza Hut website is just teasing the new pizza lineup for now, but if it’s anything like the version Grub Grade reviewed a few years back it’ll probably fare better with patrons who are trying to sober up, or Ninja Turtles fans who have a sick case of the munchies. We’re betting the official Cheesy Bites Pizza line up will include the usual suspects such as pepperoni and cheese.

If you’re looking to really get into the TMNT spirit why not just make some actual pizzas from the show? Oh wait, we already did that for you.

FOOD HACK: Why You Should Butter Your Popcorn with a Straw

popcorn-straw-hack-lead

It all started so simple: go to a movie, buy some popcorn, have a good time. So how did you find yourself spending five minutes furiously trying to get your butter on while a line forms behind you? They said that you were dreaming too big, that you were reaching for the stars. They said you could never evenly butter all your popcorn. Well, now they are wrong. Thanks to this new Popcorn Hack, the internet has provided a way to leave no kernel unbuttered. Using just a straw, you can penetrate the surface of the popcorn and butter every part evenly, rather then it all piling up at the top .

Boom: You’re welcome. Now, go forth and flex that popcorn butter swag.
