Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
9 hours ago via Rotten Tomatoes

More a fantasy movie then a Harry Potter (HP) copycat, the movie is set in an earlier timeline of HP World and that besides few mentions of Hogwash is all the connection it has to the HP series. The periodic setting of the magical world in America with the focus on magical beasts keeps the movie fresh. The CGI effects of the animals are great, the storytelling a humorous adventurous one, it's more fun and less dark then the later HP movies. With most of the characters being adult, the story-line come across better for the grownups while the kids can enjoy the magical visual world.

Did feel the side characters in the movie are more awesome then the main leads, the end duel of Gellert Grindelwald makes Voldmert look like a noob, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalskiis & Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein are by far the most fun character in the magical world. On the other hand Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander is way too awkward but this does separates him from other wizards, still really looking forward to the next adventure of his.

Liked the originality of this science-fiction superhero teen thriller but the style was too grim, needed lighter moments and humor, probably the only time I chuckled was right at the end. I ended up knowing and watching the movie cause of Maisie Williams , she was good delivering a strong performance and being the true star of the movie. Great effort for the low budget and young star cast, but did feel the story deserved a bigger production value.

Beauty and the Beast

The movie is as good as the original if not better, it was very faithful to the source material, hardly any changes made, even felt the script was the same. The CGI special effects were magical, the sets gorgeous, the songs fun, the voice over for the enchanted items spot on, everyone fit their role perfectly especially Emma Watson, she was made for Bella. The only complain if any was I did feel Luke Evans was not an idle Gaston or it might be the more aggressive characterization which didn't sit well with me.

Kong: Skull Island

This is an entertaining Monster movie, great CGI effects and Man vs Beast moments. It's even able to spin a decent tale with good drama, dialogues and humor. The movies star studded casting does seem underutilized while giving top class performances. Overall I enjoyed it more than I expected, would have been even a better experience if I would have got to watch it at an I-Max.

Wow, expected it to be another fantasy flick for kids, it was so much deeper, not sure if its even suitable for kids or for that matter boys, way too dark and grim. Cover adult's topics and doesn't shy away from emotionally traumatic issues, not sure if the movie is for all. Its visually stunning and has superb casting & performances, one of the best storytelling style I have come across.
