The film is being produced by David Heyman, producer of all eight of the blockbuster “Harry Potter” features; J.K. Rowling; Steve Kloves; and Lionel Wigram.

Hallmark Keepsake Harry Potter 2015 ornament giveaway

Hallmark continues to amaze us year after year with their Harry Potter Keepsake Ornaments, and this year is no exception. The Harry Potter Platform 9 ¾ Hogwarts Express ornament is jam-packed with detail. Just the wall alone, with its indented brickwork and familiar red Hogwarts Express sign to the golden embled above the famous 9 3/4 sign, brings you right back to the Kings Cross scene in the very first film – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

 

Hallmark Keepsake 2015 Ornament Harry Potter Platform 9 3/4 Hogwarts Express 

The ornament has Harry half in/half out of the platform wall, pushing his cart through, along with his trusted companion Hedwig inside her cage as she sits atop Harry’s belongings. Even his trunk is detailed with its straps and buckles crafted onto it. The same goes for Harry’s glasses - he’s actually wearing them instead of them just being painted on.

One of the coolest things about this ornament, however, is that it plays the actual dialogue from the scene where Harry is at the train station for the first time, trying to find Platform 9 3/4. We get to hear not only the voice of Daniel Radcliffe, but Julie Walters (aka Molly Weasley).

To enter for your chance to win this fantastic ornament,  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  and put HALLMARK ORNAMENT in the subject line. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends Sunday, August 16.

Those wishing to purchase the ornament can do so here.

J.K. Rowling's 'The Casual Vacancy' miniseries released on Blu-ray & DVD

 

The Casual Vacancy Blu-ray cover

 

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released this week HBO's three-part miniseries The Casual Vacancy, on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. It includes special features on the casting process and on adapting the screenplay from J.K. Rowling’s best-selling book. Michael Gambon, who played Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films, stars in the TV series, which was executive produced by J.K. Rowling.

The series itself is based in the town of Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind the pretty façade, however, is a town at war. The rich at war with the poor, children at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.

The Casual Vacancy can be purchased on Amazon.

Review: Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F

Dragon Ball Z Resurrection F theater poster 

 

My inner child is bursting with joy even before watching the much anticipated Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F. I was only expecting to receive a screener copy of the movie, but to my surprise, I was bestowed with a Golden Frieza Pop Vinyl, two cell phone charms of Goku and Frieza, a T-shirt and, last but not least, a four-star Dragonball stress ball! But enough about toys. 

DBZ:RF barrages you with nostalgia as you see familiar characters once again find the responsibility of saving the world sitting in their laps. Although I was excited to see what the movie entailed, I found myself slightly disappointed because they didn't choose to have cameos of some of my favorite characters. Regardless, this movie is quite entertaining and if you are a hardcore DBZ fan, it won't disappoint; there aren't any power up fillers that take up half the movie.

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F is playing in limited release now through Wednesday, Aug. 12. Find a theater near you.
