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

It was such an honor finally meeting Robin Williams. I’ve been a huge fan ever since “Mork & Mindy” so it was a thrill talking to the Academy Award-winner about his role in “Happy Feet Two.”
In this interview, we talked about:
*** His honeymoon in Paris
*** Why he returned for “Happy Feet Two”
*** Voicing the roles of Ramon and Lovelace
*** The messages of the film
Watch “Happy Feet Two” when it comes out this Thursday, November 17th!
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.
