Is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Worth Watching

This movie is both a spinoff and prequel of sorts of the Harry Potter series. The movie, written by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling herself, delves into the origins of two relatively insignificant plot points touched on in the books. The first plot point is about the titular textbook that is part of the curriculum at Hogwarts, and the quirky author who wrote it. The second, and less prominent plot point, is about a dark wizard character that had close ties to Dumbledore named Grindelwald. While this movie takes place in the frightening landscape that was 1920s America it still manages to give some depth to the events of the Harry Potter series that didn’t take place until almost 60 years later, and a whole ocean away.

Pre order Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them from iTunes Store

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is absolutely worth your money, despite not quite living up the Harry Potter franchise. It is the first full-length Harry Potter franchise story that leaves behind childhood adventure and teen angst, and expressly deals with adult characters living in an adult world. And there has to be some appeal in that for longtime series fans. Read the movie reviews by film critics or movie fans before you decide whether to go to the theater. Or you can also pre-order it from iTunes Store.

Rowling has a voluminous imagination and Yates keeps things humming along, although, as was also true of many Potter movies, there is often too much of a good thing. by Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

With dazzling effects and wondrous new characters, J.K. Rowling's world of witchcraft and wizardry is back with a 1920s steampunk feel. by Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground

I was surprised at how good this film is, being an extension of the Harry Potter "Cinematic Universe," to borrow a phrase. I was expecting that familiar downward spiral of destiny, but this is more upbeat and unpredictable. by Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope

Fantastic Beasts leaps into ludicrous territory without regret far too often. Its formulaic and ridiculous display tarnishes a fifteen year old franchise that leaves you with the question. by Chris Sawin,
