Did the three of you go to the movie? If so, did you like the movie?

I admire the cinematography of The Dark Knight. The movie was very well cast and all the leads gave strong performances. I really liked the costumes and the makeup.
That said, the movie was philosophically confused. The filmmakers seemed to be trying very hard to make an Important Point about justice and authority, but it was far from clear what they were trying to tell us. The Two-Face origin subplot wasn't very well developed and, frankly, didn't make a lot of sense.

Haven't seen the new batman movie yet. One of the earlier ones had the penguin played by Danny DeVito who, to me, is the acting equivalent of fingernails on chalkboards. At about eleven or so, I had about a wheelbarrow load of DC comic books, which, if I had kept and posted on ebay, would probably pay for my retirement now.
Turns out that the wasabi we know and love (and do I ever) is not the real article. It's actually horseradish. In Japan they've got wasabi as we know it and they've got the original stuff that the faux stuff we and most Japanese eat is based on. The original comes from a plant that grows along mountain streams in forest dappled light in soil saturated by clean, cool, flowing water, which environment is obviously limited. Not to worry though, we're producing the real McCoy now right here in the Pacific Northwest.
Phantom – Yeah I'll go see this man on wire flick. Nothing like a safe vicarious thrill. Claustrophobia, no problem – I can crawl through a quarter mile of two foot, pitch black, cobweb-clogged pipe without a moment's hesitation. Get me on a ladder though . . .

I'm not unusually afraid of heights. But I was almost afraid to look at some of these scenes. I admire those like Petit who have the talent and courage to get up on the wire but I could never consider doing anything like it.
When we first moved into the WTC, I was wary about getting too close to the window of the 103rd Floor. To even think about going on a cable that high up, with the winds that funneled through those buildings....incredible, and beautiful

Sounds like the Batman franchise to me.

Remember, you're saying thanks to a "fuck them ragheads" bigot. Glad you can live with it. Foolishly.
