Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them

We enjoyed the movie very much. The beasts were fantastic indeed - the niffler was charming and the massive rhinoceros beast was gorgeous. I appreciated J.K. Rowling wrote this script herself - the themes of the film feel like classic Rowling ideas. Eddie Redmayne was too twitchy and introverted for our taste. We could literally understand about 15% of his dialog. Of course he spends the whole movie explaining stuff you don't have to know, but it was damned annoying regardless. Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury) was charming and hilarious as a Muggle, erm, I mean "No-Maj". Thanksgiving weekend at Belmont Studio Cinema; Date Night with my wife! Thanks Debbie D for babysitting.
