Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindewald
Visiting my family for Thanksgiving, we chose Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald as our post-holiday movie. I was a bit lost in the first Fantastic Beasts film, so I read the Wikipedia entries on both films. At breakfast my grandsons were a fountain of details and refreshers on the world and I felt prepared. As we watched the movie I felt so grateful for that conversation. After the film the chat around details and backgrounds was lively and detailed. It was delightful. The movie was OK. Not much plot, but all kinds of asides to the wizarding world which are more in the books than the films. I still enjoyed it, but more-so the conversation. Thanks to my family for enhancing my movie experience.
