I want to be up front with Harry Potter fans - this movie is not Potter caliber. But I still found it to be absolutely lovely and enchanting, with much to admire.

When it comes to wizards, J.K. Rowling can do no wrong.

One of 2016's best blockbusters, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a lot of fun and a, well, fantastic start to what looks set to be a franchise every bit as exciting as, and perhaps more so, than Harry Potter.

The perfect compliment to children who grew up with Harry Potter and are now adults ... The series looks back with the trappings of a film more tailored for adults in tone.

Director David Yates knows this world well and is able to bring this world to life with the same sense of wonderment.
