Martin Freeman's Bilbo and 13 Other Reasons to Love "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug"

There are a lot of reasons to see "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," but I thought I would cut it down to fourteen - thirteen plus one for luck. Beware of spoilers after the break!

Special Screening of "The Last Unicorn" at the Tower Theater with Peter S. Beagle

For the next couple years, Peter S. Beagle and his crew will be hosting special screenings of the 1982 animated movie "The Last Unicorn" all across the United States and Canada.  The tour happened to be in my city on December 2nd, and the event was a relatively intimate gathering of a couple hundred people.  The wonderful part about this was that Peter was able to stay and speak to/do signings for everyone in attendance who was interested.  In fact, when the movie was about to start, the tour facilitators walked down the line of fans waiting to get an autograph and assured us all that it was okay to go get a seat in the theater - Peter would stay as long as it took after the show to meet everyone.
