Universal Studios Hollywood: Tips and Must-Dos for the Movie Lover’s Theme Park

I love movies. If you know me, you know that I quote movies (and TV shows) a little too often. I am not sure where this love started. Maybe it was with my earliest movie memories (E.T., Cloak and Dagger, Smokey and the Bandit). Most likely it was … [Read More...]
