It could be, maybe you're right.  It's been way too long since I've seen Magnolia.  I've only seen it twice, both times on DVD, but I've watched that Magnolia diary so many times.  Greatest extra ever.

The movie itself wasn't by any means a cinematic masterpiece, but I have to say that the trailer for Not Another Teen Movie was the best because it started out with the deep, raspy guy voice saying...

"If you liked Scary Movie...
Who gives a damn?"
"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye

I've probably said it before in this very topic, but:

Best trailers ever=The Shining, Clockwork Orange (and Rules of Attraction's affectionate rip-off trailer), and Magnolia.

I love old-fashioned movie trailers, too. All That Heaven Allows has a fantastic trailer.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

'MI III' Gets Award for Best Trailer

The full 126 minutes of "Mission: Impossible III" probably won't win best picture at next year's Oscars, but it had the best two-minute trailer at the 7th annual Golden Trailer Awards.

A jury that included directors Quentin Tarantino and Guy Ritchie chose the "Mission: Impossible III" trailer for best of show. It also won for best trailer of action movies over the past year and among 2006 summer blockbusters.

The Golden Trailer Awards, founded in 1999, bills itself as the "world's fastest awards show." At a recent New York ceremony at the Directors Guild of America, miniature movie star trailers were handed out as trophies.

Other winners included the trailers for "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," "Wedding Crashers," "March of the Penguins," "Good Night, and Good Luck," "Match Point," "Thank You for Smoking" and "Transamerica."

I had the song from that trailer playing on repeat for about two and a half weeks straight last year. No regrets.
