Someone at Magnolia Pictures must hate Christmas, because for the second year in a row they've dropped a rather dark and nasty little film into your local theatre in time for the holiday movie-going season.
THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
I love Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol". There are Trekkies, LOTR's, Twilighter's, and other fan-atic's...mine is the cinematic world of Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Cratchit, et al. I love them all (I'm a bit of a snob, I must admit) and with the Spirit of Christmas upon us, I'll give you the run-down of my favorites in film.

If you have something you really want to say, why call a talk show and bother us digitally when there are living, breathing human beings willing to listen in person? Who might that be, you ask? Well, someone like tonight's guest - Benjamin Mathes from UrbanConfessional.org. What is that, you ask? It's an organization of artists who believe people need to be heard.

It's no wonder that ever since John Lasseter of PIXAR took over Disney's animation dept., their movies have improved dramatically both in story content and look. Using his formula of "make 'em laugh; make 'em cry", this CGI animated tale of an 80's video game character going rogue is no exception.

Mark your calendars, because I'm predicting that Anthony Hopkins will take home the Academy Award for Best Actor for this role. He deserves it!
To set this up properly -
I was pretty sure, but not positively sure, that I knew where Mr. T lived. I needed proof.....so Jon and I did the only thing we could think of: On Halloween night, with the help of my friend Morgan, we used our children as props and went to his place for candy. This was all to verify whether or not he even lived there. Enjoy.
