Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

I seriously cannot wait for this movie. Having more than a little bit of an obsession with all things Harry Potter, this is going to be a great extention to my magical world and I couldn’t be happier.
From what I can tell, we are going to once again be treated to some unique personalities and some even more unique creatures and while this is definately a tale on it’s own, the connections to Harry Potter are going to tie the two together, no matter how subtle.


  1. I always find it hard to write a review without giving too much of the plot away, because a review is telling you about something, but with a movie review, you don’t want to be putting spoilers up that will ruin it for those that haven’t seen it yet.
    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them – Well first off, let me say that I totally loved the movie which was hardly surprising. I already knew a couple of spoilers going into the movie which didn’t really ruin it for me luckily, and the biggest spoiler didn’t come as a shock because we had picked it anyhow. That was the only part for me that was predictable. As expected, we were treated to creatures that are certainly beyond my imagination and I often wonder what drugs someone must be on to dream up these weird and wonderful beings with my next thought wondering how I could get one…

    Loved Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, his mannerisms etc seemed perfectly fitting for the part. The out of place ‘hero’ so to speak who seems to care more for his creatures than he does for people (something I totally understand sometimes).
    Newt arrives in New York and is instantly out of his depth and what continues on from there, is just one event after another as more and more personalities (and creatures) are introduced.
    If you love a movie that takes you out of this world, then this is a movie you’ll enjoy and I can’t wait to take my 10 year old twins as I know they’ll love it too.

    The only part I’m not sure was the ‘villain’
    I can’t go into too much detail but lets just say I hope it doesn’t take too much away from what could be yet another amazing movie franchise.

  2. Without giving too much away, Fantastic Beasts was a good movie. It had a few plot twists and it had more than one small detail that makes you think. I really enjoyed it. It was less about “beasts” than I imagined. But even with that knowledge the beasts they do have are truly fantastic. I highly recommend watching it.
