I don’t remember what the reviewers thought about this second edition of Fantastic Beasts, but gosh I thought it was cool! While I wasn’t a Potterhead, I did catch those movies occasionally and can honestly say that I enjoy the Fantastic Beasts series a lot more, maybe because the cast is more grown-up, cooler and, I think, quite stylish. Plus, what’s there not to like about Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law?
There’s also good story progression in The Crimes of Grindelwald, although we don’t see a lot of the actual ‘crimes’ in this movie. The unveiling of who Credence is was very well done, and I am definitely excited to see what comes next.
