Mike Newell

Charming British chap.

Like It Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994) -- I don't remember this movie completely rocking my world or anything, but I think I was as charmed by it (and Hugh Grant) as you are supposed to be.

Like It Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) -- I'd almost given up on watching any more of the series after the third one, and the first twenty minutes or so of this one didn't seem too promising either.   It was just kind of confusing.   But then the whole tournament idea started up and the movie got better, even if it didn't do anything incredibly special.   But it didn't do anything incredibly stupid either, and the simple plots (including the "who will take Hermione to the dance" kind of stuff) were fun enough to watch.  (See Alfonso Cuarón for the predecessor, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.  See David Yates for the sequel, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.)
