I was super lucky to have some cinema time just before the new year. I went to see Fantastic beasts and Moana. Moana will have her very own post later but for now let me tell you about the Fantastic beasts.
I know I was very late to see it, and managed to actually stay away from any plot spoilers too.
There were some nice twists in it.
I am glad this film came out now and not earlier. The special effects were truly special and the creatures were more than magical.
I truly admire the JK Rowling mind, to imagine all these creatures how they look and act. Put the entire universe together. Magic!
I am actually making my mother to read the Harry Potter books.
Oh that's another thing about the Beasts, it is totally independent film and I guess the book from HP story's. personally I actually preferred this timeline, shiny roaring twenties in NYC. Beautiful costumes, oh I loved Queenie way to talk... "Oh honey..." she says...
and it didn't feel outdated, like some to the HP costumes, or at least how I felt about them in the books.
It's a great reboot and rework of the series I very much look forward the next instalment of this saga.
Would I recommend it? Well yes, honey, even if you have no idea about the Boy Who Lived and the rest of Hogwarts stuff.
