iDID Love it! I LOVED IT SO MUCH! It was so perfect all of the characters, the actors, the scenes, the time, the story, the LITTLE TINY DETAILS, the new information, the creatures! The funny bits and the sad bits and the scary bits. HOOOMG!

I absolutely ADORE Queenie. She was so amazing, lovely, empathetic, and brought the Legillimens to the screen. OH.
I loved the creepiness of Modesty Barebone, Credence, and their creeeeeepy mother. Seriously, she takes the cake. She and Umbridge should get together and compare notes.
Newt was adorable, and eccentric, and awkward, and lovely, and perfect. Just perfect. I don't think I could see anyone else BUT Eddie playing him, to be honest.
I loved the differences of Queenie and Tina, and the costumes popping their personalities.

I looooved the Obscurial part, it's haunting and it was just so dark in the movie, especially the bit in the subway tunnels. How they did it, I don't know, but the visuals were just amazing.

I went in really looking forward to seeing the Nifflers, but I think I was more excited about the Thunderbird.

I saw it yesterday and I like it, though at first it's kinda confusing but the more I watched it, the more I can follow it I love Kowalski, he's so hilarious and I ship Queenie and Kowalski together I love the creatures, especially the Thunderbird and the niffles gosh, never had a niffler around the city.

SPOILER!!: do NOT open this if you haven't seen it
I kind of think Kowalski's memory is not really... Gone? Although it's kind of heartbreaking when he decided to step into the rain andd when Queenie kissed him it's just ASBDCWYWIWJSGSY!!!!

It was amazing and Raven I fully agree, which makes me feel like it goes against everything I've looked up, but I'm so happy it went that way.

ALSO, I really want like all these creatures to be stuffed animals in stores like now so I can get them for my classroom! They are amazing to see on the screen!

GUYS. The movie is just...askdfjaskldfjkasldjfsad;klfjsdfj

I cannot...repeat...CANNOT stop Mordred from fanboying. THAT SUITCASE IS PRECIOUS. THere's literally another world IN THERE. sklajfdksdaljfkldsajfkasldfj SO GOOD!

Jacob is precious. SO PRECIOUS. He just might be my favourite character from the movie! And yes, it was heartbreaking when he stepped into the rain. You can see how much he didn't want to forget things. I mean...HE BONDED WITH A DEMIGUISE. And the ERUMPENT. And yeah okay, Queenie but she's too beautiful for Jacob to forget so I wasn't worried about that part.

And the bakery scene. That was bittersweet!

And who else here went 'WOO HOGWARTS YEAH!' when Newt and Queenie compared their schools?


...and...

I was the only one who let out a snort in the theater when Newt said, "Merlin's Beard..."

Clearly, I spend too much time RPing.

Stefan I felt that too, with the Illvermony/Hogwarts. "HOGWARTS IS OUR HOME!" haha.

It was just so perfect that they included a muggle (I'm sorry, I can't do no-maj). And I think he portrayed that bewilderment really well. I mean, how in Merlin's Beard would we ever react if we were Jacob? MAGIC IS REAL, YO!

Hehe I loved it too all the bits and pieces we do here, the Merlin's Beard, the creatures talk.. ahh just perfect.

how much did i like this movie?

oh not much. only saw it TWICE in a row in IMAX when i had no budget for a movie much less two

this movie is BEAUTIFUL! i've said it before it went out and i say it again after seeing it. the visuals are breathtaking and the MUSIC is just perfect. yeah few notes here and there to connect it to the previous Potter films, but for the most part it largely stands on its own

i love our new quartet-- Newt, Tina, Queenie and Jacob . they work so well together, all their varying personalities. if theres only one tiny complaint i have, is that Newt is a little hard to understand in some parts, like he mumbles too much and something about his accent thats tricky to understand (i guess Queenie was right about his accent lol!)

also i love that last bit in the end-- because his suitcase's lock keeps breaking, Newt just tied it up with rope

man i wanna see it again, maybe in 4D

I just finished it, and omg, my life is literally complete Nothing will ever compare to what that movie was, literal perfection.

The CGI was brilliant and the magic looked so real and beautiful. This movie sucked me back into the Harry Potter world in such an amazing way. And the best thing was that there was no book to base it on, so I could just enjoy the brilliance and beauty of it without thinking about all the things that they didn't put in from the book.

AND NEWT
I feel like Newt is my newest child, my socially awkward and adorably smol baby I just want to fangirl all over him.

MACUSA was just like *_____*
When I saw the first shot of it, I already loved it. That love dwindled a bit when we were actually introduced to the employees and the way that things were ran there. It was super stiff and unbearably organized, something that I never thought the Americans would be. And the intolerance and segregation of Wizards and No-Maj just highlighted how backwards things were back then.

The creatures gave me life, like that Niffler, and omg the Demiguise was the most precious thing to ever exist ;-;

I also loved how this movie had a little bit more of a catering to the older audiences, since the demographic of people who watched it grew up with HP and are all mostly adults, so that was great too.

Also, Jacob Precious, little Jacob. Him and Queenie had such a cute thing going on, and it didn't feel like it was forced at all. They had like this super cute Romeo and Juliet thing going and it was just such a nice break from all of the more serious things going on in the movie.

I was super convinced that Modestly was the Obscurial and was just hiding her powers because of that absolutely awful mother of hers. I literally hated the New Salem Philanthropic Society. Both them and Grindelwald were the worst. And how clever was it of Grindelwald to disguise himself as the DMLE Head to get close to the possible Obscurial-kid?

That reveal at the end was like such a cliff-hanger, and it seriously makes me want to pay billions just to see the sequel.

Maybe it's because we all went to Hogwarts? It's our home!

Yeah it does. I can't do no-maj too. It sounds derogatory to me so I'm sticking with the term muggles. We were laughing our butts off when Jacob came into the scene. He's us in a way y'know. It made the movie relatable somehow.

Right?! I had to slide down my seat a bit when I made the sound. I felt genuinely amongst muggle that very second.

This was an absolutely amazing movie! I want to go back again and again I couldn't get enough of it! The creatures were amazing as were all the actors/actresses. I can't wait for the next one to come out, I haaaaate cliff hangers and it left sooooo much!

I seriously was trying not to shout towards the end, in the theater! Gosh.....why?!?!??! So many feels!

....

Yes, I enjoyed it

I haven't just seen it -- This movie was so incredible (Especially in IMAX!) that I feel like I snapped right into the movie and LIVED it.. and I can't wait to re-live it again and again and again...

My thoughts are all over the place but I just have to talk this through with someone. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it so to anyone reading, please do add your two cents!

SPOILER!!: My WTF moment


Ariana.


I could not help but think of Ariana almost instantly when I saw Modesty. Don't ask me why (let's be real, I secretly wanted Dumbledore to pop up..)..I just did and as the story progressed on and we realized that Graves was Grindewald.. (BTW, I just KNEW that Colin Farrell couldn't be Grindewald or evil.. The scene where he slaps Credence felt so..off. Although I'm still not sure how I feel about Depp either..) and he revealed that there's a girl he's looking for that has tremendous power... the Ariana storyline just seemed far more feasible. I know, I know, he was describing Credence but it just felt like there was more to that *vision* than what he revealed. She's described as unable to control her magic..and Aberforth constantly talked about having to calm her down during one of her rages...

Quote:
Originally Posted by Aberforth in Book 6

"She wouldn’t use magic, but she couldn’t get rid of it; it turned inward and drove her mad, it exploded out of her when she couldn’t control it, and at times she was strange and dangerous. But mostly she was sweet and scared and harmless."
If that doesn't fit the obscurial description-- I don't know what does. It fit...almost too well. I instantly went to google after and it seems like I'm not the only one who thought of Ariana. I can't wait to watch it again so I can look for all the fine details. I also wasn't buying that Grindelwald just wanted to start a war with the No-Majs with an obscurial. Clearly the death of Shaw means that an obscurial's attacks can be deliberate but..how does a person control the host? There's WAY more to the Grindewald's backstory and that vision he was talking about..

EDIT: Just realized I said nothing about the new characters or the new plot-line.. lol. Sorry y'all. In reference to the timeline, it seems like Grindewald first became aware of obscurials and first realized his mission with the death of Ariana as the famous battle took place in 1899. It makes sense that using Ariana for their "mission" was an absolute no-no for Dumbledore and the disagreement led to the death of Ariana (I always wondered what the heck Ariana was doing there as she seemed like such an innocent/helpless victim..) Anyway..still talking about the past..darnit. Moving on..

I LOVED NEWT. The fact that he's Hufflepuff just makes him that much more lovable. I liked the characters (still unsure about Tina..) overall.. but considering that we know how things will play out..I don't really feel as invested or interested in their little romances or character development...at least not like I was with HP characters. I'm hoping that will change as I learn to love them more but for now, it's the plot that really has me up at night...

i'm with you there. all the aesthetics of MACUSA i completely love how it was run in 1926 leaves much to be desired though. then again this is a Wizarding world where the Magical persecutions was a major historical event for both Wizards and Muggles, so yeah i understood where the story was coming from. kinda ruined Seraphina Picquery for me a bit too. but again i love her look so

haha i took the bait too all the proof was that that Obscuriel was from a kid (what with Newt and Graves harping about it all the time) that i didnt think Credence would figure in it at all. i kept waiting for what that "meaty" (as per Ezra's words) role was for Credence, i thought whatever it was, it was gonna be revealed in the next movie (because again Ezra said next movie).... but then BOOM-- adult Obscurial witches! his Obscurial was terrifying btw

theres a part of me that really WANTS to see more creatures i want to know more about that Swooping Evil and i know theyre kinda on the wrong continent, but i always wanted them to explore what Lethifolds are-- in fact i thought it was a Lethifold that Jacob was looking at initially.

Thoughts?
omg its you! WELCOME BACK!!

ohh i want to talk so much about the Obscurial (because really its a big topic that deserves its own thread)(waiting for thread approval on that too )

yeah i definitely see a solid connection with Ariana's sickness and the Obscurial, pretty much everything from the book is what we saw onscreen. and Grindelwald-- another common denominator between Ariana and Credence. makes me wonder what is it about ol Grindy and Obscurials eh?

yeah i definitely see a solid connection with Ariana's sickness and the Obscurial, pretty much everything from the book is what we saw onscreen. and Grindelwald-- another common denominator between Ariana and Credence. makes me wonder what is it about ol Grindy and Obscurials eh?

Hi!


I know - I looked for it before I came here but didn't find one. I think it may be linked with the Inferius. Imagine how powerful the corpse of an obscurial turned inferius could be! Would that even be possible? I kept thinking about how Grindelwald was said to have wanted to create an army of inferi when I saw that black mist escape after Credence's demise.. That and the fact that Newt had managed to remove one from that little girl in Sudan means that there's something more to the nature of obscurus than what was revealed. Where's Hermione when you need her to make a library visit?!


I have absolutely no clue how I'm going to survive the next 2 years.

I saw this about a week ago and I LOVED it. I will never get tired of Harry Potter related goodness (even the Cursed Child which is still a sore spot for me but whatever that's not what this review is about )

I LOVED Newt. I saw someone complain that Eddie didn't enunciate enough but I think he kind of did that on purpose? Because he's an awkward little fluffball and that would totally make sense and I love him. I LOVE HIM. TINA CAN'T HAVE HIM. HE'S MINE. And of course HE'S A HUFFLEPUFF although I wish it would have come up in the movie. Mostly because I just want to stick my tongue out at all the righteous people who said Hufflepuffs don't matter

The niffler though. I WANT A NIFFLER. By far the best beast in the movie for me. I wasn't expecting him to look so much like a platapus (that's what I kept thinking when I saw him haha) but he was just SO CUTE. And smart too, trying to trick Newt by acting like a mannequin Ugh he was so stinking adorable.

Speaking of adorable, I LOVED Jacob. I had no idea what to expect with his character, being a No-Maj, but he was just the best. I was tearing up when he had to step in the rain and forget everything. I can't wait to see him in the next films, because I'm sure Queenie just said whatever to the Magical Congress and told him everything he had forgotten and probably ended up bringing back some of his memories

As far as Grindelwald goes, I knew SOMETHING was up with Colin Farrell as soon as he gave Credence the Deathly Hallow necklace, but I wasn't expecting JD to show up in this one. I really liked this look. The bleach blonde undercut? It weirdly worked for him. I'm still not sure how I feel about him playing Grindelwald, but we won't be able to fully judge until the next movie. I want to know what happened to Graves, though. Did he pull a Moody and stick him in a trunk somewhere? I'm going to guess the outcome for him is...not as fortunate as Moody's, though. This IS Grindelwald we're talking about. I JUST WANT TO KNOW.

Two things that bothered me at the end of the film though. One - Newt didn't ever get that Billywig. We're just gonna let it flutter around New York then? And two - WIZARDS ARE NOT IMMUNE TO OBLIVIATION. So how come everyone was able to walk around willy nilly in the rain at the end and still be ok? Or did all those people volunteer to forget everything as they repaired New York? I doubt it. IDK. Maybe the potion thing he used is only good for Muggles and therefore is different.

Overall, I loved it and I liked that it basically set up the whole Grindelwald vs. Dumbledore plotline, which I wasn't expecting when the movie was first announced.

Yeah it was confirmed-- the real Graves was disposed of as soon as Grindy took over his position at MACUSA. and i so wanted to see real Graves too

was that the "moth" thing Newt said as they were looking for Jacob and his case? initially i thought it was one of the creatures that got out of his case but he wasnt catching it. maybe its a native creature of the NY area?

haha yeah the Obliviation rain. Either the Wizards placed a shield spell or something to protect themselves from the rain or this only works for Muggles, since its not an Obliviation coming from a wand. then again Queenie made the effort to shield herself from the rain so.... hmmmmm. plot hole?

Hmm, I missed the line about the moth (damn you Eddie and your mumbling!) but I thought it looked like a billywig? That was what I immediately thought when I saw it haha.

That's what I figured happened to Graves. BOOOOO.

And I took that as just...Queenie didn't want to get her hair wet haha. But yeah that annoyed me so much. I think it's the former DMAC Department Head in me, though
