This is probably an unpopular thing to say, but I liked Batman Begins better.  Don’t get me wrong, The Dark Knight was more than worth the price of admission, but the movie got a little slow toward the end.

I think The Dark Knight was probably a better made movie, as far as production value, but I thought the Batman Begins story was a lot more interesting.

That said, and I don’t want to seem like I’m jumping on the bandwagon here, but I call it like I see it, Heath Ledger will win an Academy Award for his Joker performance.  It was the creepiest movie villain I’ve ever seen.  Creepier than Hannibal Lecter.

Who else has seen The Dark Knight?  Did you love it or hate it?  Was it better than Batman Begins?


I actually make these myself quite bit, but the wife gets burnt out on them pretty fast — something about being too heavy and greasy or some such nonsense. Anyway, to the point of this post — the BBQ nachos at Rolla Smokehouse (RSH).

They’re smoky. They’re meaty. They’re BBQ-y and they come with lots of jalapeños on the side. RSH has three or four sauces to choose from. I couldn’t tell you the names off the top of my head, but the sweet, smokey sauce mixed with a little of the spicy sauce is my poison of choice

Having traveled extensively across the South, I think I have a pretty sophisticated BBQ palate. This place didn’t impress me at first, but it gets better every time I visit. I recommend the BBQ nachos.
