    Anthony Goldstein is in the books. They couldn’t apparate out of the prison because it isn’t possible in there, there wasn’t a port key in the prison, and there wasn’t a fireplace so no flew powder either.

    What really bugs me about JKR is that if she genuinely cared about making the Harry Potter stories more diverse... it'd be really easy for her to just revise the text itself and republish it as a new edition. It'd probably make her a ton of money, too.

    It's funny how the edgelords hate Rowling because she introduces diversity, and then how the rest of us hate Rowling because she's cheaply retconning her straight white characters to pretend that she's progressive. The irony is hilarious.

    i just don't get why she just doesn't say "Yeah, I'm white and diversity wasn't a thing when i wrote the books, so this is a straight white book. I've have now learned and have a more diverse view of life and I will make sure that my next works are full of diversity" Like common, It's not that hard

    What annoys me the most about Fantastic Beasts is that there will be five movies. FIVE!!
    That's like...way too much for a prequel this irrelevant.
    The first movie is pretty good. The second one...wasn't good, but I didn't hate it either. I actually like the Johnny Depp aka Grindelwald twist so far, but we'll have to see where they take it in the future movies.
    Also, I never saw anyone else talk about this, but I personally don't feel the magical Harry Potter mood in Fantastic Beasts and even though it's set almost 70 years before the HP story begins, it feels more...modern. Not as cozy. Since HP has been a very big part of my life since childhood I was expecting some goosebumps but I was disappointed.

    coming out of the first fantastic beasts movie, I was like “wow, that movie was great! I loved how different it felt, it was a cute supplement to the original films, and I appreciate how well it expanded the universe in just one simple, self-contained plot line!”
    when my friends told me it was the first movie in a series, I made the logical assumption that the other movies would be like origin stories for the OTHER iconic textbooks, because that would a) be cool and b) make sense considering that the fIRST FANTASTIC BEASTS MOVIE E N D S THE ARCS FOR ALL OF THE CHARACTERS IN THE FILM

    I can see why Rowling wanted to be in charge of everything. Most times movie adaptions don't do the books justice, but it seems like she's forgetting a lot of the information that she herself made canon and switching it up making all the Harry Potter fans upset. Seems like she should've gotten more people to help her with the movie (namely people who know the Harry Potter universe) so that she didn't end up making mistakes that led to do many different people making videos about why her latest movies suck. Seriously, this is the 3rd video I've seen talking about how much the movie sucks and there's more that I haven't even watched.

  • Riri Pari
    Riri Pari 2 days ago +1

    Sounds like J.K. Rowling should've just wrote the Crimes of Grindelwald and then left the adoption part to some actual professionals. I know some people don't do the book justice like with the Shining which Stephen King was actually upset over because they didn't flesh the story out right, but sometimes they can get it right.

    personally i don't even count this series as a part of the HP world. the movies were just both incredibly badly written and directed - half of the characters weren't even introduced by name and the whole plot felt so implausible and scattered it was just like everything was happening just so they could make a movie out of it, while the main character's journey through the movie felt like the most lame psychedelic trip where everything was happening for him directly just to raise the most shallow kind run or fight type of emotions and excitement. meanwhile every single character felt like they had overly exaggerated their only personality trait to hide the fact that in reality they were all painfully single layered and had only that one personality trait that made them recognizable from each other. It's nothing but bad fan art, just like the hobbit movies.
    it seems that Rowling pumped out every single drop of creativity and imagination into the original HP series and now all that's left is a low self esteem and scandalous SJW who just loves to shock people with the power she has over the franchise - and who has gone totally blind on her own work because of the success of the original franchise she wrote.

    Hot take, I thought crimes of Grindelwald was pretty good. Newt Scamander was wanted by the ministry to control him more and give him bigger punishments when he does things like the last movie. They gave him a travel ban to try and stop these things happening even if he doesn't conform to them. So on, so on

    I agree with a lot of what you said, but I think the reason for moving him in the beginning was quite believable. He was a European magical terrorist. His crimes that occurred in Europe were far worse than those he committed in the US. Therefore, obviously they would want him to be charged and punished in Europe, where he had more victims, rather than US.

    Your wrong on many accounts.... 1. Newt Scamander, is not a normal Wizard. He is not weak, and probally one of the most powerful wizards in the wizarding world at this time. He is a Beast Master! He know a variety of different spells in his arsenal along with numerous magical beast, that he know what they do and how they do them. With a special connection to them like no other Witch or wizard. 2. I do agree with you on the curse child screen play, making Hermione Black makes no sense. "actually #2." Goblet of Fire (2000) The Order of the Phoenix (2003) The Half-Blood Prince (2005) The Deathly Hallows (2007), Fact check your stuff man. Dumbledore also was revealed to be Gay in 2007, and when creating his story it pretty clear that he was infact meant to be gay. #3. Abernathy and Grindwald did the switch prior! AT no point was his tounge taken out, Abernathys tounge was. TBH I understand why this is confusing for you because it took me a little to really understand what all happen. Check out Supercarlinbrothers to understand the full explanation, they do a pretty good job why everything in the begining happen. But on the point that he didnt escape and saved ABernathy even though he clearly doesnt care about people, is also un true. He killed his lizard because he doesnt value its life, its a lesser species than Wizards. Thats why he hates muggles because he finds them as animals. #4. Also a prison transfer is common even among today. He is a citzen to Europe there for his trial and what happens to him belongs to Europe, not America.... DUH... #5. WHy did they take a carriage, and not teleport? Well Apperating has to many chances of something going wrong, along with portkeys. Its to much of a chance that Grindwald can escape. There for they have to make sure he is transfered, when nobody not even Grindlewald can interfere. But they fail... Remeber ITS A MOVIE. #6. They want to recrute Newt as an arua because hes actually amazing... A BEAST MASTER to remind you. #7. The video being to close to peoples faces is to show us the veiwer how Newt views things and people. But I understand that you didnt get that. #8.Zookeeper is not true, and infact I think Newt would hate zoos.... Hes a BEAST MASTER.... #9.Essra Miller survived in the last movie and you can see HIM SURVIVING , a little wisp of him flew away and we clearly see this and understand that he probally isn't dead. This was not a shock to people who payed attention. #10. He didn't kill the baby... But sure we can blame him for this. #11. Grindlewalds eye is explained in probally a different movie that will come, its a theory for us the viewer to figure out whats up with his eye. "hint" Made-eye. #12. Queening is crazy, and is obsessed with Jacob and wants to marry him. which is why they are in LOndon because she knows that in London its ok for her to marry him and not illegal... Idk what else needs to be explained about that. #13. I do agree with the whole jacob memory thing .. But i always remeber its a MOVIE. # 14. Nagini... Has a blood curse... Jk rowling made that a thing... Because well its her freaking story?? #15.Shes a circus attraction because, its a blood disease like being a warewolf.... or Half blood- or being muggle born... Back then discrimination was probally alot more. #16. Grindlewald didnt want to approach Ezra MIller till the right moment, laying the foundation of what will make Ezra Join him. #17. ITS NOT A VAPE, clearly its a Hooka... The last thing I'm going to mention because im tired of writing and I doubt anyone will read all of this anyway... The accio on the creature, stumped me at first as well, because that cant really happen... But after watching it again and thinking about it, I realized the creature is a miffler... Think about it... its not that hard. The Miffler has a ton of gold and jewels all in his Belly, this is the only way that this is possible, and if it was any other beast it would have been a huge mistake but it wasnt... Okay... Im done.

    My family thought I was crazy for not liking this when it came out. You hit a lot of the points that I felt as well. One of the major things I though was severely missed in this movie was the development of newt and tinas relationship. They seemed to be really good together but we don't even get a conclusion until literally the end of the movie when they get to the crypt. I also hated that they had flamel in the movie and the transformer style spell casting. It all feels like Micheal bay directed the movie. Really a travesty because the first one was good.

    I don’t really agree with the idea of a film or a season of a show ruining a franchise because the original product that made everyone fall in love with it in the first place is still there, and you can still enjoy it. At least in most cases that’s not my thought process. I don’t think The Last Jedi ruined Star Wars, I don’t think Teen Titans Go! is ruining Teen Titans, I don’t think that season 8 ruined Game of Thrones, and I don’t think that Michael Bay ruined Transformers or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Why? Because the original films, and shows are still there. It’s the same with this movie. The original Harry Potter books and films still exist in their unaltered form, and nothing is going to change that. So just enjoy what you enjoyed before.

    They really should have separated these two concepts. Let Newt have his own movie that's fun and whimsical with magical creatures, and THEN make a series about Grindelwald with Dumbledore as the main character coming to terms with someone he loves turning to the dark side and being the reason his sister is dead. That would have been the better idea and I would watch the shit out of those movies. Instead Rowling once again wrote herself into a corner and now has to think of reasons why Newt, a zookeeper like you said, is supposed to be important in these movies.
    In conclusion, Rowling really needs to embrace the concept of death of the author.

    Idk why everyone’s so surprised Rowling started retconning shit. She probably receives death threats from extreme leftists on a daily basis. The USclipr makes a great point, and I agree with him, but unfortunately there’s a small group of people that are both righteous and stupid
