MY RATING: ★★★★★
THIS MOVIE WAS A-MAAA-ZINGG. Okay, maybe that was the Pottterhead in me who is biased BUT. BUT. I’m telling you, it’s worth it. All the critics had made it clear how Fantastic Beasts is .. BEEAAST ❤
The movie wins for sure, it’s such a great medium to introduce the beasts although the book is more like an Encyclopedia of Beasts ahah. I did a review of the book as my first post of the blog here. They just released the Screen Play version of the movie as a book too so you can purchase the pwetty version here.
They are so adorable ! The graphics were stunning, J.K Rowling’s creativeness will never cease to impress me. You sort of get attached to them too once you see them moving and interacting, it was so sweet. DEFINITELY WORTH WATCHING IT IN 3D AVX. I’m not much of a 3D fan but I have to admit, with this movie, it’s an experience you would want to see with those magical glasses.
They nailed the casting. I loved every single one of them, from adorable Queenie to the querky Credence (Ezra Miller) to the introvert Newt Scalamander. Jacob was such a refreshing character with his humour and muggle status. We all wish inside to be at his place. I mean, who wants to miss the chance to hang around wizards for several days ? GOSH THAT WOULD BE MY DREAMM.
Wait, what am I talking about? I’m a Wizard pssh. Sorry forgot for a while there.
Overall, the storyline was great, I expected less from J.K Rowling after the disappointing plot from The Cursed Child. But this one, damnn she was on fire! The darker vibe of the movie give the Wizarding World a new era, a new vibe. I’m happy that they didn’t force any Harry Potter references into the movie, I mean you don’t have to read all the 7 books or watch al the 7 movies to catch the references in this one. They didn’t try to force it into a Harry Potter sub-plot and that’s what I needed.
DOESN’T THE TRAILER LOOK MAGICAL? 🙂
DID YOU WATCH IT? What did you think?
