Let’s Talk About Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2

Okay, so I’m four days after the fact, but whatever.  I’ve been busy busy busy preparing to leave for San Diego Comic Con 2011 today! Woot.

Thru the Looking Glass Pensive

I never was too into the “Harry Potter” movies until Jay started getting into them, but now I’m a fan. That said, I think the final movie (out July 15) is going to really feel like a loss to me. First Harry Potter, then Lost, now Harry Potter again. The following is a letter from […]
