Play-by-play random thoughts as I watched the trailer for the first time:
Dumbledore's intro: I wish that he didn't seem so harsh. His voice and mannerisms in the trailer are really...well, unRichard Harrisish. Yes, I happen to be one of those "stuckontheoldDumbledore" saps.
Lovely Ladies of Beaubatons: Butterflies?? What's with the sigh? God, tell me that they don't make every intorduction that way. Lol. Also "Bow-bat-uns"? Have I been saying it wrong all these years?
Harry can't hold his liquid: This scene is a must-watch in slow mo. I have dialup and poor Harry was stuck for a minute or two with a long drip hanging out of his mouth. Lol. Must be spitting it out in front of Cho. And "NO!" all you Cho haters, it's not because she's ugly.
"Where?!": Lol! The blurb where McGonagall is teaching dance is my favorite piece of the trailer. Very genius add on.
Fraternizing with the enemy: The Great Hall looks fantabulous. Very cool. Maxime doesn't look as "horribly oversized with bad special effects" as I thought on the first trailer. I swoon over Ron's jealous face. The dance sequence will be fun, and I personally think that Hermione is a total babe.
The champion selection: Victor is a babe. Cedric is a babe. Fluer looks awfully toothy in her smiling scene. Eek! And I hate the way that Dumbledore screams maniacally, "Harry Pottah!!!" while Snape and Karkaroff and Crouch look on in seething surprise.
Moody: Okay, so I am one of those extremely canon fans that thought Moody, at a first glance, looked, well, Meep! Not quite right. But seeing this...I think he'll do a bloody good job. His class looks wicked cool. One of my favorite moments in the book, actually. Teehee. Ron's scared face - I love it!
"People die IN this tournament": (say that with a raspy, scary voice) The dragon. Schwew. Amazing.
Face in the Fire: Hmmm...Really not what I pictured it. When I first saw the scene, I thought, what the hell? Lava face? And then...who is that sitting with Nagini in the barely opened door. Doesn't look familiar to me. That must be Sirius creeping back toward the castle in the rain.
Of Evil: (shudders!) That graveyard is so wicked cool, and the dark mark very realistic. Loooooooove it. The quick scene of McGonagall putting her hands to her mouth, the twins are crying in the background. Maybe the scene where Harry comes back with Cedric's body. Oooh. And the World Cup mischief is going to be fun.
The fandom that would never be: The Harry/Mione hug. Ack! I love it despite being a Hermione/Ron promoter! Sorry, all you H/H shippers, that you're being teased by this tantalizing embrace. It is freaking hot, though.
Wrap-up: There are too many fast lil flashes of scenes near the end. But it's all so incredible I could pee my pants. Lol. Can't wait. My favorite book is about to be my favorite movie. Schwee!
