A Hollow Mockery of it’s Predecessor: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

I had the chance earlier today to sit down and watch Kingsman: The Golden Circle. For those unaware, this is a sequel to the hit spy movie Kingsman: The Secret Service that came out in 2014. Both films were directed by Matthew Vaughn, who is also a credited writer for both films. The Golden Circle stars Taron Egerton as Eggsy, and also features Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Pedro Pascal, Channing Tatum, Hanna Alström, Edward Holcroft, Halle Berry, and Sir Elton John. Golden Circle’s story follows some time after the events of The Secret Service and while everything…

The Best Burger in Provo: Me

The time has come for the thrilling conclusion of my quest to find the bets place to get a burger in Provo, Utah. While technically there are still other burger joints that exist in Provo, I only meant for this to be a summer thing, and we’re halfway through September now… so gotta wrap it up. Why finish with me though? Do I really think that I have a shot of making a better burger than all of those establishments, most of which have been open longer than I’ve been alive? I mean yeah, kinda. I’m the only judge here…

Best Burger in Provo: Mooyahs + Others

Alright, Summer over and I thought I’d be well done with this thing by now, but to my surprise there are an awful lot of burger places in Provo, Utah. As of this post I’ll have been to fourteen different burger joints and there are still at least a dozen to go. Frankly though I’m kind of done with this, especially since I’ve found a number of really good places and I haven’t been able to go back and eat at them because I always feel kind of guilty that I’m not going to a new place and being as…

Nostalgic Eating

I need to start this blog post with a disclaimer. The burger place that I ate from for this post was Brigham Young University’s (BYU) own Creamery outlet. I’m not biased towards this establishment because I’m currently enrolled at BYU, rather I’m biased towards it because when I first attended BYU all the way back in Summer/Fall of 2011, I ate there a lot and have quite a few memories attached to the place, and even more memories attached to the burgers I ordered so frequently from there. I would think that aside from my mother’s roasted potatoes (they’re actually…

Da Big Mac

I don’t think anyone would or could even argue that McDonald’s is a classic American institution. The golden arches are a fundamental piece on how both American’s and the rest of world look at American culture. I’m sure a rousing discussion about how a fast food chain influenced the culture of the most powerful nation in the world sounds fascinating to you, but I’m not here to do anything like that. I’m here to ask a much simpler question. Does McDonald’s have the best burger in Provo? It’s a long shot I know, but it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t…

Movie Time with JonnyT: Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde is a film directed by David Leitch and stars Charlize Theron and James McAvoy. In short: Not a fan. Story is beyond bad. Like bad bad bad. No good action can redeem this hot mess. To elaborate, Atomic Blonde has some really great moments. Okay one really really good moment, for those who have already seen the film, the staircase sequence. It’s one of the best fight scenes I’ve seen in a long time, but a single scene does not a movie make ya know? This one marvelous moment wasn’t enough to compensate for the total and unapologetic mess…

The Best Burger in Provo: CHOM

Hey just cause I went out to Canada last weekend doesn’t mean I forgot about my true quest in life, to find the best burger in a small city in the middle of Utah. Ahh a truly grand destiny. CHOM is a restaurant located just a few blocks north of Provo’s city center temple and features a potato bun in place of a normal one. Don’t ask me what the difference is because I don’t really know. It’s not the taste though. I ordered a BBQ bacon burger because it has three of my favorite words in it’s name. First…
