    Looks pretty nice and I did enjoy the first one, but I can't help feel it's missing... something. Kinda like the Hobbit movies vs. the Lord of the Rings trilogy. They wanted to do "more of the same" but somehow, perhaps inevitably, it ended up being weaker than the original. Fantastic Beasts is like that: You get more stories in the HP world so it's enjoyable but it's just not the same :/

      I grew up with the Harry Potter books, so I was hesitant about a series of movies that are only loosely based on the books. But J.K.Rowling is heavily involved in the movies and it shows.

      It wasn't breaking any new ground in cinema but it was a fun potterverse romp. If you liked the other films you'll dig the new franchise.

    Really enjoyed the first one, but I wish Colin Ferrel and Johnny Depp's roles had been switched. I feel like Johnny Depp is just too schticky for that role. Especially in multiple films.

      I am on the fence about Depp, but I guess we will find out if he is a good fit or not soon.

      Same universe, the Fantastic Beasts movies are set a few decades before the events of the Harry Potter series.
