Movie Review – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

I’m just 1 ½ weeks late with this movie review, but never mind! *lol* Seems like I’m already feeling the spirit of Christmas! Which is to say that I’m feeling the stress of the entire year packed into a four weeks countdown that reaches its height on the 31st of December.  I really don’t know about you ,but I’m still searching for that silent and contemplative time of the year, if I ever find it I’ll let you know! Scout’s honour! ;-P

Okay, moving on! XD Let’s get back to “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”! I really liked the movie, considering that I enjoyed all the other HP movies this probably doesn’t mean an awful lot though. Still, this second movie stepped it up a notch from the first one. Don’t get me wrong I loved the first movie and it was really awesome and sweet with all the fantastic beasts, but “The Crimes of Grindelwald” was so much darker and certainly even more intriguing.

For instance dear Nagini made an appearance and I wasn’t only surprised but also delighted to see her in this movie! I was always fascinated by Voldemort’s pet and boy, I’m probably even more fascinated now. I really wonder how old Voldy and she met and I hope to get an answer in one of the next movies. And don’t tell me there aren’t going to be even more, because I’m 99,9% sure that there will be at least a third “Fantastic Beasts” movie! 😉

Also can we take a second to appreciate Grindelwald’s manipulative and oh so very cunning nature?! That man knows how to work a crowd and damn did he make his point!! Whilst most of Voldemort’s Death Eaters are driven and motivated by fear Gindelwald’s talents lie in his eloquence and a rather uncanny talent to twist his opponents’ words. I swear, my inner faerie had a field day listening to his speech. *lol*

But enough of me and back to Grindelwald’s biggest adversary: Dumbledore! I think Jude Law played him really well and I liked that you got a glimpse of the Dumbledore he’s going to be when he’s older. I mean the defiance and cheekiness were still visible in the older Dumbledore and apparently those are traits he already had in his younger years. XD After THAT kind of ending I’m really curious about how things are going to play out in future though. I guess now all bets are off! *lol*

Anything else I want to add?

Oh yes, I love Newt Scamander because he is a PRECIOUS BEAN and needs to be protected at all costs!!! <333

What about you? Did you already see the movie and if yes what did you think?! Did you like it, hate it, wanted to eat Bertie Botts Beans and drink butter beer? Tell me! 😉

  1. Ohh I had so much issues with this movie.

  2. I have a lot of mixed feelings towards this movie. On the one hand I ADORE these characters! SO MUCH! But on the other hand, I think it actually has some problematic aspects. Also I just didn’t personally feel it was as strong a movie as the first one. And also I’m pissed about the reveal about the blood pact because it takes away SO much depth. And oops I’m ranting a little…

    But still… I was SOOOO engaged in it, and I LOVE THE CHARACTERS SO MUCH!!! So I have mixed feelings. I’m glad you enjoyed it!

    1. Haha! I can see that in your comment! *lol* But I hear you, I know there are some things that might be considered problematic. Maybe I’m unaware of most of them because I never read the book. Maybe that’s better the way it is, because it helped me to enjoy the movie? XD

      The characters are so precious! ❤ Especially Newt!! XD
