I’m sure you all have certain friends who you meant to call at one point, and you just never got around to it, and suddenly a week turned into a month and a month turned into a year and suddenly you haven’t spoken in two years, and it’s just too awkward to deal with. So you just write that friendship off, until a wedding or a funeral or some other events transpire to bring you back together. (Aside: That’s the exact relationship I have with my mother, who I haven’t spoken to in three years. It’s not that I’m angry with her, I just waited too long, and now it feels like I need a really, really good excuse to justify not speaking to her for three years).
Anyway, that’s also how I feel about this new Harry Potter trailer, which came out two days ago, and which anyone who cares about Harry Potter has probably already seen. It’s not that I didn’t like the HP trailer two days ago; I just never got around to posting it. And now it’s awkward. It’s even more awkward because it’s a really stupendous trailer. But, then again, Harry Potter movies (and even the marketing) is a lot like those creatures in the new season of “Doctor Who.” They’re great while you’re watching, but as soon as you turn your head, you’ve completely forgotten about it. I barely remember what’s in this trailer, and I watched it three minutes ago. It’s like invisible ink.
Here’s the trailer:
