“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” Directed by David Yates

J.K. Rowling has written the screenplay and while it has some issues it is a solid movie. The base story focuses on Newt Scamander (played by Eddie god I have no idea why, but I just hate you so much Redmayne) a wizard with a fascination for creatures that everyone else would call strange and dangerous. Some of those creatures get loose and he teams up with an American Auror, her sister, a Muggle to catch them. Intertwinded with all this is a dark sub plot about people who demand another Salem Witch hunt (Little did they know there was another one 30 or 40 years later) and politics of the Congress of Magic (American version of the Ministry). The effects for the creatures look great and they all have unique and cool designs. However this is a general gripe I have with a lot of movies, but they could have used SOME practical effects instead of just CG. I have some story issues with stuff that could have been cut or the twist I have an issue with, but considering they’re milking this for about 5 movies I won’t complain yet. I liked it and if you liked Harry Potter I highly recommend it. Final Verdict: 7/10 Wands
