Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is not burdened by a lot of source material (beyond the "textbook") to muddy the waters. Just lovely to see an unexpected backstory that (eventually) ties into the Harry Potter series without having a predetermined image in my mind of the characters or how the plot was handled/interpreted by the film makers. Also adds depth to our understanding of the background in the main Harry Potter canon. Looking forward to revelations as the remaining adventures unfold in future films.
I've also found that this film is much easier to watch with those who aren't familiar with the Harry Potter series as it truly is a charming, stand alone story.
My only complaint and the reason for the 4/5 instead of 5/5 stars is the uncomfortably forced romance between Newt and Tina. Tina causes the major conflict at the end of the story by repeatedly persecuting Newt despite him wanting to do nothing but preserve the misunderstood and unfairly persecuted magical species and being his own special and sincerely awkward self. And somehow, despite it being more logical for him to hate her and never want to deal with her again, he somehow feels romantically inclined towards her! And despite her being a terrible person and causing so much havoc in such a short time span FOR HER OWN PERSONAL GAIN she somehow has the balls to feel the same way! If this happened over a longer time period it would have been far more believable than what they portrayed in the movie.
into the Harry Potter books. Started out slow and I thought this is dumb, but I paid money for it so I stuck it out. Well about halfway
through this I was hooked. It was cute and sweet and great for a change with all the doom and gloom happening in the news.
I don't have kids and I'm not a fantasy kind of person but I did like this movie. So if you can still get a warm fuzzy from a movie watch it.
