Take-aways from Fantastic Beasts

  • The world can easily steal the scene if you let the special effects department get the bit between their teeth.  Absolutely gorgeous production.
  • The wizarding world is a waking nightmare full of capital punishment-happy, incompetent authoritarians.  Apparently political flavors come in “wizard supremacist” and “violent autocracy.”  So that was… fun?
  • The whole universe is one loopy specialist’s bright idea away from permanent brain damage.  I’m not entirely sure the American wizards’ embargo on magical animals so the mundane world doesn’t find out about them is coming at it from the right angle, there.
  • Still worth taking the family to go see, if you get a chance.

Enjoy your holiday, folks!
