Check out the New Harry Potter Trailer: Deathly Hallows part 1.
This film is likely to be
Never a good sign if I'm bored to death BY THE TRAILER. Also, if they don't pull their finger out and make Part II, poor Daniel Radcliffe is going to look like The OAP Who Lived.
Also, the Voldie makeup always cracks me up. "My Evil Overlord has no nose!" "Then how does he smell?" "TERRIBLE!"
It may be that I am bringing to it a whole history of watching the films and reading the books over the years with my daughter. The theme in particular brings all that rushing back.
He's only 21 - three years older than his character. And I believe filming wrapped in March on the whole thing.

Enjoyable if you're in the right mood, I suspect. I intend to go in with full rose-tinted glasses and fandom goggles and so on, determined to enjoy it.
Yes. I really couldn't get on with Order of the Phoenix at all. I saw it on telly recently and it wasn't that bad by any means. Of course we are spoiled by Prisoner of Azkhaban which was far better than the rest.

Yeah--I think PoA is still the best movie HP, although it does of course omit bits of plot that niggle at me.
And fandom can (I find) redeem a slightly disappointing HP movie. I rewatched Half-Blood Prince not so long ago, and found it immeasurably improved by having read Sarahtales's mockery of it
in the interim.
I plan to see it our locally-owned cinema and have no great expectations of it and be in the mood to enjoy it thoroughly, and also enjoy being part of something that lots of other people are also enjoying.
Sounds like me with the World Cup (sob)
Exactly! I might have no interest in football but I enjoy the way you write about your experience of the World Cup.
I think it will be very handsomely made and I will go and see it but it won't overcome the shitness of the source.
I might post something about the new Doctor Who season. I think where things like Potter and Who work is when they manage to suggest something different from themselves, and bigger, as if hidden behind them. I think that's where the fan enthusiasm comes from (as opposed say to Twilight, which I think suggests nothing at all).
