And So, The Harry Potter Trailer
You know...I don't know, you guys. As Jason said on his own blog, I'm going to need to re-read the book if I want to remember everything that went down in the sixth installment, but the main thing I do remember -- the numerous illuminating flashbacks into the life and childhood of Tom Riddle, aka Voldemort -- is the main thing I'm worrying about in the movie. It wasn't so much a problem in the book because you were just steam-training your way through to see what happened, but now that we know where everything shakes out, won't all those flashbacks seem a little tedious? The fact that I can't remember anything else happening in the book before its climactic final chapters is a problem, I think. This is probably the least excited I've been for a Harry Potter movie in a long time. Which sucks, because it comes off of Order of the Phoenix, which was my favorite movie of the series. Hrmph.
