My Fun Adventure at the DVD/Blu-Ray Premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2!" 

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” is one of my favorite films this year, and it’s certainly one of the best to come out in theaters this past summer. So I was thrilled to be invited to the DVD/Blu-Ray release of the movie that took place in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Orlando.

The series took us to a rollercoaster ride involving the life and times of our favorite boy wizard, so it’s just fitting that there’s now a theme park built in honor of Harry Potter. The rides are fun, but most importantly, it was bittersweet to say goodbye to the franchise, and to the actors Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint. So dear J.K. Rowling, please write another Harry Potter book, please? :happy

Take a look at my adventure inside Harry Potter land as we bid adieu.

Are You Excited for "The Iron Lady?" Check Out the Full Trailer! 
It is pretty safe to say that Meryl Streep will score a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher. The film looks interesting, but I hope this will not suffer from the "J. Edgar" biopic unsureness disease -- is the personality in question a hero or a villain? The trailer sure looks like it's either or, but one thing is for sure, Streep's performance will anchor the movie and will make us at least watch the whole film from start to finish. Right?

Here's more info on "The Iron Lady" from Yahoo:

A surprising and intimate portrait of Margaret Thatcher, the first and only female Prime Minister of The United Kingdom. One of the 20th century's most famous and influential women, Thatcher came from nowhere to smash through barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male dominated world.

Here's more info on "Happy Feet Two" from Yahoo:

Mumble, The Master of Tap, has a problem because his tiny son, Erik, is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away and encounters The Mighty Sven -- a penguin who can fly! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model. But things get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik learns of his father's "guts and grit" as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures -- from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals -- to put things right.
