This Should Be Dumbledore’s Movie

Crimes of Grindelwald

The Crimes of Grindelwald (Fantastic Beasts)

Directed By: David Yates

Grade: C+

This is not to say that I don’t like Newt Scamander or think he could be a good hero. It’s simply I think the main flaw, the main problem, with this film was that the story is Albus Dumbledore (Grindelwald too) but it is being lost in the marshes of an overstuffed, over baked film.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

Director: David Yates

Grade: B+

All I really need is to hear the old Harry Potter music and you can get me into the theatre. Balanced against the fact that I’m not that big on Eddie Redmayne I was however a little worried about this one.

Redmayne plays Newt Scamander who comes into 1920’s era New York with a suitcase full of fantastic beasts. Unfortunately due to the suitcase not working all that well and a mix-up some of the beasts get released into the city and Newt and friends must find them before they get into trouble.
