The Silliest Chase of All Time
You know we here at DRB love a good chase in a movie, but this... this... is as atrocious as it's royally silly. It's also captivating in a weird way and has to be seen to be believed - taken from "Alluda Majaka" (1995), India.

The magical transformation continues. Although still very much a work in progress, the magnificence of Hogwarts castle is beginning to take shape above Hogsmeade as work continues on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Hogwarts will be the home of a thrilling, new, state-of-the-art attraction - Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey - that uses ground-breaking technology to bring the magic, characters and stories of Harry Potter to life in ways never before experienced. Set to open in Spring 2010 only at Universal Orlando Resort, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will feature multiple themed attractions, shops and a restaurant.
Imagine the pride of ownership... and the ease of use!
Space travel never looked so cute (this flying saucer piece is called "Marty and Otto's Joyride"). Here is new art from Mike Rivamonte:
