      I just want to say one thing. I have been randomly suggested your Sherlock vs Sherlock video, I really dont subscribe too often to these channels, but I subscribed to your just for the things you said at the end. It really hit me at the time of the life when I am falling more and more into depression because I need a change in my life and I decided that I want to support you to do what you love, even if I am 2 years late to the party and you grew ten folds since then...

    I feel like the true "crime" was that people decided to let JK Rowling solely write the screenplay. We've had lots of evidence that she's not a "great" writer other than the series (and even then a lot of the like for that is from worldbuilding and taking multiple years of work).
    What could they have expected? A team to help JK Rowling write it (with her cannon-world ability to approve concepts) would've been more responsible.

    I kind of feel like this franchise should have been purely about Credence rather than Newt, have the series be about Credence discovering his magical ability and honing it in a nom traditional way, leading to him being manipulated into a weapon by Grindlewal, that way the Dumbledore twist might actually mean something to the audience.

    I watched all the Potter movies (my ex and her daughter watched them a LOT)... Those I could watch and actually liked a few of them and the others were ok... I tried watching this movie (Crimes of Grindelwald) and found myself bored and hoping it ended soon. It was just boring and meandering... pretty pointless and dull.

  • Kirai

    Fair enough, movie aint that good. And Im a big HP fan. BUT, you're looking at the movie as single piece. This movie has no 3 acts because the movie itself is an act. First FB was the intro act, this One is the development, and 3rd One Will be the ending. Its like saying the 2nd lord of the rings is bad cuz there is no introduction to characterd or plot.
    Hating on a movie for the sake of hate is dumb. Movie aint good, true, but atleast come up with decent arguments.

  • Raurie Sime

    I was also disappointed by the movie because they basically made everything from the first one feel cheap and useless (i mean you left the first movie thinking the kid died) but for a movie about a guy who's whole thing was supposed to be about magical beasts it had almost nothing to do with magical beasts.
    to me what i was being sold just was not what I got. I really do agree that the story just seemed to be all the same till suddenly ending

    I always thought that it was because they took away the ending of the first movie. They basically said “you know Jacob? Yeah... let’s bring him back for no reason whatsoever” and “hey, remember Credence, let’s say he didn’t get defeated, just because”. They back tracked on an already told story for no reason

    Maybe this "if the scene serves no purpose, it can and had to be cut" rule is the reason I prefer all other media over movies? I like world building for the sake of world building, so a medium that has to reject it can't be one I love.

    Personally really enjoyed the second film but I do understand all the issues, however I feel all these answers will be revealed in the next few films. Harry Potter is very similar due or the nature of a film series, look at the first three films then look at the last set. The first three had separate stories with an underlying story building up within, then the last set merged into one story with underlying stories within each.

  • Danul83
    Danul83 7 days ago

    I mean, the Newt and LeStrange flashback was important, or at least would have been, if the story had decided to follow through on half of the build up which focused on the relationship drama, what with her being his past love and now his brother’s partner, and him now being in a sort-of relationship with the other lass whose name I’ve forgotten. If we were watching a movie focused on that, it’d be good to see that. But with Grindelwald doing his stuff on top of that, on top of creepy teen wizard dude, whose name I’ve also forgotten, struggling with his relationship struggles and the like etc etc.
    The overburdened story from characters, plot lines, and the like is likely the root cause of the crappy structure. They were trying to do multiple different tellings of the same story, and to do so they had to do way more exposition than they should have. That being said, spending so long trying to find the lass in question was kind of absurd and unnecessary. Could have easily added rising action on that search to drive them forward without actually costing much of the other stuff.

    i have never been able to finish any jk rowling film for some reason, lol .... I have watched too many films to count in this lifetime .. hers... I just fall asleep haha... I have tried watching harry potter a few times, tried reading the books ... i do not know what it is, I just get bored ... I have also read too many books to remember haha, 3 or 4 a week at one point ... sigh, really do not understand it... people seem to love them but I cannot, lol... I watch and read pretty much everything but her ?.. nope haha
    I am not trying to be edgy or different, I have honestly tried, lol... I have no idea what the problem is.... I even like all of the actors in it and love seeing them in other films haha

    p.s, this is from a guy that turned down a job on the lord of the rings films heh, one of my favourite series of books hah... it is not like I hate fantasy, and i did not turn it down because I hate tolkein, I just had other commitments and their offer was shit, lol... i honestly havve no idea why I cannot enjoy harry potter etc

  • Francisco Cantu
    Francisco Cantu 8 days ago

    I feel the structure problem with Crimes of Grindelwald is that the entire movie is act one.
    Rowling is writing these films exclusively for the screen and not to be as far apart as they are ending up.
    The first film was a complete story simply to build pans and create a want for the other films.
    The next one if ever made will probably feel mismanaged as well. Mainly because all the films are meant to be seen together as a single epic installment rather than the 7 installments telling a larger story like the HP series

    It almost like we could do the current star wars plots and it work better have the main current universe that ties in everyone tie off each exit to a separate plot and movie without effecting the main current story line and it be allot better fantastic beast main see Grunewald keep going on just there plot start grind. Plot in a separate chain of cross over movies and any other one off character who could be a movie seprately if the plot of content is enough to merit it.

  • Eric Raju
    Eric Raju 9 days ago

    Your point about there being a no second act made me think about how the original trilogy was extended to become 5 movies. So there is actually a reason there is no rising action or second act: this movie is entirely an advertisement for the third movie. Which is less of a problem with Rowling I think (FB1 had similar flaws but was more enjoyable as a stand alone film, despite being written also by her) and more of a Hollywood systemic problem as we see nowadays with the endless supply of reboots and sequels.
    I personally think JK Rowling has a lot of problems in writing which were evident in Fb1 and I think the lack of a second act here was ironically one of Rowling's least flaws and more on the style of writing franchises today.

    I agree with nearly all of this, however I personally think that Dumbledore withholding that one line of dialogue is, while an annoying delay story-wise, a very character-accurate move. Dumbledore gives out as little information as possible, seemingly believing that nobody but himself can be trusted with such dangerous materials. It’s entirely accurate to his characterization to keep this pointless secret right up to being handed the thing he wanted all along.

    If you want to show that Newt and Lestrange have a childhood connection, why not have Newt go through a picture book, reminiscing on his adventures with Jacob and pawing longingly at a picture of Tina. And somewhere in there he comes across a picture of himself and Lestrange at Hogwarts and the caption "friends forever". Use some similar iconography as has been established with Hermione/Ron/Harry in the Potter movies to help efficiently convey the meaning of this scene.

    its sad because as a book fan ive always wanted her to write and direct the films as i see them as rushed and with too little of the source material used. now this comes along and i have to say that it was a mistake. maybe this franchise isnt meant for the big screen at all tbh. the other movies were "better movies" in a technical sense but story wise they were incomplete at best but i cant say COGW or the first film were better in that regard. cancel this as a movie franchise all together and go back to the books.

      3:15 I plan to respond further about your Act1/2/3 archetype and how arbitrary lengths are wrong but let me first say: you mean the movie ran for 2 and a half hours and you thought it was only getting started?

      0:40 the origin of Creedence's character was THE ENTIRE POINT. You couldn't predict anything because there was zero backstory to begin with. He was an orphan in the first movie "maybe" a wizard. Presumed dead until about 10m into the film. I'm not sure how you could fore-shadow anything without wiping away the first movie's ending with a narrator which is a horrible plot device.

    Honestly, I think I would have enjoyed Fantastic beasts more as a show, with each episode focusing on newt encountering a new creature. That would easily allow for a lot of world building, with Newt traveling across the wizarding world, without feeling unearned and forced. Hell, they could even dedicate a couple of episodes to the Credence thing, Leaving them more time to set up and unveil their twist. Honestly I think folks could really enjoy something based off of the source material (the actual fantastic beasts book that is) explaining how Newt managed to survive encounters with all the crazy stuff running around the wizarding world. It’s a shame, what happened to Fantastic Beasts, it definitely had potential.

    AlexandrosGray 20 days ago

    I fully agree with you analysis and it left me thinking: could it be the reason that Crimes of Grindelwald doesn't have a second act is because the movie was conceived as the second installment in a five arc story? This would explain why the rally scene actually feels like the beginning of the second act (or middle of the story) and that would be because in the bigger overarching narrative it actually is.

    Mind you, I'm not trying to defend the movie in no way, I'm just attempting to come up with a reason as to why Crimes of Grindelwald ended up being the way it is (apart from Rowlings' poor screenwriting)

    I don't really care about this movie but what you say about it is in all Harry Potter movie and books so it doesn't bother me at all because all the JK Rowling story got these strange breathing like rythm which is kind of strange but match one of the characteristic of this universe it's strange but fascinating and that's why you point here is symptomatic of people who doesn't really like the Harry Potter saga. No problem with that. But what do you think is a bad thing for an efficient movie is what make those stories really great.
    Ps : oh and that's how a 3 act structure work. It's in French but it got diagrams

    No country for old men i suppose is a good example of a story that works wonders without what people would call "climax", at least it very, very slowly declines after what you would call the climax, but that said climax doesn't have an ultimate outcome anyway so it feels strange and metaphorical

  • Mi- Chan
    Mi- Chan 21 day ago

    I think people misunderstand show dont tell. I think of this less as ' have a scene instead of dialogue' and more ' make sure all scenes and dialogue are natural'
    In writing, 'tell' is tagged by action ' they did this, then that, then this' no insight, no emotion, no thoughts. 'show' involves alternate factors, ' they felt this, thought this, then did this.'
    By what most people think, dialogue would naturally fall under 'tell' because, well, it is telling. But I believe dialogue can fall under show if it occurs naturally within a scene. Thus, even exposition can be shown through natural dialogue

    J.K. had a really good run for a little over a decade, after that she tried to do too much, she is constantly adding little details for irrelevant things to the point where a lot of the characters have just been a jumbled mess and the Fantastic Beasts series is adding more knots to this tangled mess.

    I don't feel bad buying the screenplays just for the design. I don't care about the story cause it's gonna be crap anyways. All Rowling did lately was destroy Harry Potter and create money generating stuff and franchise.
