So Julia surprised me this week with going to Fantastic Beasts. You haven’t mentioned seeing it so I’ll take First!
EDIT: Definitely Spoilers!
I’m going to separate things into pros and cons because some things were really fun and others just don’t make sense.
- It is SO nice to be back in the world in Harry Potter
- There are some really cool effects, magic is active and doing things
- Newt is a really interesting character
- I NEED a Niffler
- Character casting was really well done
- The movie uses the Harry Potter movie rules for magic and history which is inconsistent.
- NoMag it is dumb way of saying muggles
- My wife wants a Niffler
- Obscurus/Obscurial… is it a dementor? why does it look like a dementor? Also why have we never heard about this at all before? Yeah, they makes sense sorta, but it catches me off guard a little when I’ve been learning about this universe for the last 15 years and no one has ever mentioned this? Also, it is a fundamental thing. If this is what happens to all muggle-borns who do not get training and pure-bloods have been not wanting to train them. It makes sense why so many people are against that kind of thinking, they would effectively be sentencing untrain muggle-borns to kill innocents and then die.
- Child abuse
Yeah it was a very interesting movie. I hope you have a chance to see it soon.
