Going gaga over Goblet

Ok, it's happened a lot of times before. The previews, the trailers and everything else look absolutely awesome. The build up is excruciating! It seems like its never going to get here!

And then when it does, everyone goes, "What the...?" All the good parts have already been shown in the trailer; the best jokes, the best special effects, everything!! The rest of the movie is just filler! The greatest example: The Matrix - Reloaded.

So, why am I falling for it again with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire? Ok, so the teaser trailer looked brilliant! All the stills they have been releasing look astounding in their detail! The important new cast members (Ralph Fiennes as You-Know-Who and Brendan Gleesen as Mad-Eye) seem inspired choices. For the first time we have a director who actually respects the material (Mike Newell is a big fan of HP books), who's talented and not unimportantly, British (I think non-British directors do not understand how British actors can make even the most pedestrian dialogue sound majestic). He's also mentioned that he approached the movie as a thriller and compared it to how a Hitchcock movie would be.

Ok, so I AM going gaga! Its my most expected movie of the year, has been since the teaser got here a few months back. Now there is almost a full-length trailer sort of a clip, available through Mugglenet. And that only reinforces my convictions about this!

After all, it can't be that bad, can it?
