Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Reviews
As a huge Harry Potter fan, this movie is a bit of a mess. I am kinda disappointed. Kind of. This is easily the worst Harry Potter-Fantastic Beasts movie in my opinion. It crashes my heart a little bit (obviously in a bad way). I´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)m not saying it´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s a complete disaster. The story line is just hard to follow due to its excessive plot twists and sub plots. It is occasionally boring. I feel like the story is better off on paper bound to create a book than on a 2 hr+ film. Wizards and Paris don´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)t go well together as compared to Europe and America as impressively delivered by its predecessor. In general, the movie is OK though my wizard self is trying to convince itself to go wow about it but unsuccessful. Nevertheless, this movie will still appeal to a lot of people. The characters are distinct and likeable, not to mention Eddie Redmayne´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s charm. The new beasts shown [together with the old ones] are showcased in a proper level though I still feel like more beasts should be present, hence the title. There are parts that stun you on a visual standpoint. Some parts also have action scenes that are bold and gorgeous.
I´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)m dreading that my queen, Jo Rowling is slowly losing her mojo or perhaps, it´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s a mere phase of transition from literature to screen writing. I feel like I need to mention again that the script (written by her) looks phenomenal if it´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s in a novel form rather than a movie´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s screenplay.
Yes. I´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)m still looking forward to see the third chapter of Fantastic Beasts. I cannot just discontinue now that the audience is given a peek of more revelations in the future. It expands the Harry Potter universe we used to love
I would like to know more about Lita's relationship with the Scamander brothers, but I can't see that happening now given the film's events, but you never know.
I've seen people bashing the timeline because there's a Professor McGonagall in it despite our McGonagall not being born until after the film's events, but that doesn't mean to say it is our McGonagall, it could very well be a relative.
What we must remember is that JKR had a huge hand in writing this and we know how great she is at leaving little breadcrumbs that you don't even notice until going back through content a second or third time. So I don't believe for a second that she's taken a dump on her own timeline.
Between leaving the cinema and reaching the car I already had 3 semi formed theories about the twist at the end.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for the next instalment.
This movie has NO MAGIC .... Put it out of it's misery
