Sequels are unnecessary. They're only doing it for the money

I am somewhat of a diehard fan and like 99,9% sure Anthony Goldstein was mentioned in the books. Also, i visited england lately and was rather impressed the screenplay wasn t as shit as i expected, but really good. Black hermione was totally unnecessary in my opinion and sucked. Eddie Redmayne is a brilliant actor in my opinion and makes for a great newt scamander. That would be all fine and dandy, but more movies are way too much. Sad to see my favorite childhood universe getting abused by it s original creator that badly.

im not a harry potter fan, ive watched pretty much none of the movies, but i hated the ending. i dont know why but all i could think of it was "oh theyre copying infinity wars end.", mainly because of how many people died, then it just ends after one final scene.

I've never watched or read any of the books or movies of Harry Potter or Fantastic Beasts, so when everyone wanted to see this movie I was just as confused. I just slept all of the time, not the best critic but it sucked.

Stop. Think. Has Rowling ever written anything she hasn't thought through? (Barely involved with Cursed Child btw, she only wrote the skeleton and contributed ideas and post war facts like names of the Kid's and occupations etc) look up the meaning behind the name Nagini. You'll be given hope :) c'mon guys... It's becoming too trendy to complain for the sake of complaining. Let's remember that we're fans. Who cares about Dumbledore being gay? Did you ever want to stop and think about the mans sexuality? Lol if we dump on everything, we will be left with nothing. Maybe it's not the best work she's done. Just don't ruin the rest of it all by making it so muddy you know? Let her tell HER story. HER... Story

now i loved the first fantastic beasts its my fave harry potter film (harry potter being my faveorate book and film sereise) but i came out of cog more confused then anything else like i couldn't tell where anyone was in a fisical sense or what anyone's plan was like why the ministry went to take down grindalwald so slowly or why no one stopped them on there way in and then throw in a bunch of visually overwhelming cgi and to me it seems like having flamelle in the film was them just pandering as hard as humanly possible and i have 0 issues with newt as the main charicter in a larger scale setting but it cant be presented like he was a majour player he wouldnt have been give him a background mission revolvong around credence AND THATS ALL WITHOUT MENTIONING THE BULLSHIT THAT IS NAGINI AND QUEENY IN THIS FILM AS WELL AS THE SCENES THAT ONLY EXISTED FOR THE TRAILER TO MAKE THE FILM SEEM LIKE SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THE TRAILER MADE IT SEEM LIKE IT WOULD BE ABOUT THE CREATURES A SMALLER SCEME IM GETTING IRRATIONALLY ANGRY SO IMA STOP THERE

The crimes of grindlewald doesn't suck you idiots are just so stupid you don't understand that this movie is apart of a new saga and isn't meant to answer every question. Take a moment to pull your heads from your asses and stop crying over JK Rowling giving fans literally what they asked for and go actually read the HP books.

No, this is not a Harry Potter fan review why this movie wasn't good. Someone please redo this with proper research before I lose my shit and do it myself
Raimonda Šakytė
BORING. Stopped watching before reason number one. If you start from Harry Potter and JK, you just explain for people who do not want to watch it in the first place. Everyone I know liked the movie. I wanted to see if this hate had anything to do with Amber of many lies. Time totally wasted.

Anthony Goldstein has been in the books. The 5th book, to be precise. Did you even read them, lol? Do some research, geez. Was it too much work to type the name into google search? And yes, my first thought when I read his name back when I read the book was: Goldstein? A jewish kid in Hogwarts, lol? Because as you said. Goldstein is a stereotypical jewish name.

The only thing I will say is that he seems to be very experienced and knowledgeable and everything except how to pronounce JK's last name. It's just like Kelly Rowland. It's a pretty common name. It's pronounced "Roe-land."

I loved all eight Harry Potter films and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was the first Wizarding World film I actually hated.

I agree with you. This film is one of the worst movies of 2018.
Jenna Day ago
I mostly agree with you, athough Grindelwald went back for the blood pact, the one that was stopping Dumbledoor from fighting him (that he told no one about for some reason, letting them think he just didn't want to fight his old bf). Didn't like that much, I prefer the idea that he was afraid/ guilty over the whole Arianna/Grindelwald issue and couldn't face it... Also, the Ministry specifically wanted Newt to find and kill Credence, due to Newts familiarity with magical creatures and having met Credence before... Also when Credence 'explodes' a little piece of the obscurial escapes, its seen clearly on screen... Also, I think Newt says in the first movie that the Swooping Evil feeds on negative memories first. All the muggles but Jacob associate all the chaos with purely negative things soo (but yeah, its pretty weak...). Also WTF!! Aurelis-Credence-Barebones-Dumbledoor?!?!?!?! No. Just no.
Lieutenant Newbie
I though it was dumb the way they killed off what’s his name... well Leta’s bro. i SwITcHeD tHE BaBIeS aROuNd.
Booper Dooper
Also Leta HERSELF. Like, she's in this entire movie, a promising new character, and then they just decide to kill her off for literally no reason, as stated in this video. I mean, she literally has like fifteen minutes of flashbacks, which we can now consider to be WASTED TIME, because she's fecking DEAD ALREADY.

me before 26:05 oh okay its pretty bad but it still might be fun to watch. me after 26:05 (to be honest there is no meme, reference, or quote i could say that could accurately show my anger with JKR. after cursed child this was my last chance for her and she magically made it disappear along with all of the other shit in hogwart's halls before they added plumbing.)

"we have magical sex crimes in harry potter" technically, we always did. merope gaunt wants her plot line back. I spent half of this video barking out laughter because of the jokes and the other sighing because I spent money to see this movie opening day. Christ this is really this bad and remembering half of it makes me angry because you do forget how your universe works to the point your fans are sitting there watching a movie and going "that's not how that works!". aoigtbjaeuthaj that stupid love potion plot line played for the lols I hate it.

Really cracked me up in this vid, though I did some digging. Turns out, Anthony Goldstein was not retroactively written into the story. He was mentioned in the fifth book, meaning he is as old a character as Luna Lovegood. It is nothing major as he only receives a mention by name, but he was not created later on at least.

When the book series is over, J.K. tells us that Dumbledore is gay. Okay. She lets some people write a Harry Potter play, and we learn that Hermione is black. That's funny, because in the books, every time we meet a non-white character, J.K. makes a point of telling us that the character is non-white. AND she let Warner Bros. cast a white girl to play Hermione in 8 films. Plus, in the play we learn that given minor provocation, Cedric Diggory could've become a Death-Eater, even though "The Goblet of Fire" portrays him as perfectly noble and decent. Now we have a couple of new films that introduce a previously-unknown Dumbledore brother AND imply that Professor McGonagall is decades older than the books claim that she is. So.....has J.K. just given up? Does she simply not care anymore? Has she caught whatever the disease is that made George Lucas make the Special Editions and the Prequels? Should we call it "Greedoshotfirstitis"?

the memory part is all about the last movie , when she kissed him in the rain (the memory potion didn't work on him well) thats why he is getting back his memory gradually. the kiss had some spell that negate the memory wiping rain bull shit, anyway the movie sucks however. JK RAWAULING !? you just should stop writing 1 week a month, cuz if u do , u might end up with a bad story.

I like the character of Newt and like seeing him in the movie but yeah, he didn't need to be on it, but hey, fantastic beasts can't be fantastic beasts without beasts 😂 Also, we know for sure Dumbledore is defeating Grindelwald or whatever because it's on Dumbledore's card thingy along with the zombie alchemist guy xd

You can't kill something that was already dead. This was an attempt to create a new franchise off an old theme. It's amazing it got two. Normally it would of died after the first. Hint, no Harry Potter. Trust me there will be a third. The real problem is the fans are growing up and they are not attracting a new generation.

I feel like it's only important that Newt is in the movie because they wanted to have more Hufflepuff characters seem important cause they weren't really important to the main story. Plus people, such as Myself, Like Newt. And it's just easier for Jk to piggyback after another story.

Rowling is suffering from Lucas syndrome: 1: Create a successful original series that everyone loves 2: Start retconning the original series by adding bullshit that no one cares about 3: Create a prequel series that feels like cashgrab and can't reach the quality of the original And the last part is going to be.... 4: Sell the rights to your series to Disney

This is what happens when you try to make 10 movies/too many fucking books to count about a world that's just ours except there's one school for magicians. Worldbuilding requires a WORLD. A singular place is not a world. It's the equivelant of making a franchise where the local McDonald's sells furniture.

Write your own darn book then. When they're as successful as Harry Potter, you can then produce a prequel as good as your standards. See, there's always 2 paths. Either you support what you love or go on and become a critic of you don't approve. The answer to your problems is rather simple: stop watching Harry Potter universe movies. Not gonna happen is it?
