I thought it was pretty boring.

It was a horrible, awful misstep.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a genuinely interesting, sometimes thrilling new world that still feels vaguely familiar.

If it is a fantasy story that includes historical elements but isn't strict about accuracy then there is no reason for the casting to not reflect the diversity of modern audiences...

The film is lush and Rowling-esque enough - with plenty of wonderfully animated fantastic beasties - to satisfy Potter fans.

Everything is built to draw you in, enthrall, and connect you to the action.

An immensely entertaining film.
