    More and more evidence is mounting that JK never wrote those books. May as well be another Bob Dylan situation.

    Rowlings has a lot imagination but no mind for logic. Just look at Quittich the win depends solely on which seeker catches the snitch it's as if the other players are just keeping the audience entertained in the meanwhile.

    I think the movies would have went over better if the American Wizarding world was as colorful as the English one. I always thought Bewitched would be like how the American Wizarding world would be in the Harry Potter Universe.

    Oh good, I'm not the only one who walked out of the theater in a state of sheer confusion. I enjoyed the spectacle of the movie but honestly, I couldn't make any sense of the plot. It actually somehow makes more sense (or at least I'm less confused than I was) after watching this since you broke down how ridiculous it all was and touched on some things I missed during the deluge of sudden twists in the final act.

    I'm mad that Credence didn't die the first movie. The only time where a fake death scenario made sense was watching Hannibal because he was a psychopath and deceitful. It makes sense that he had everyone trapped in his web of lies. Credence not dying on the other hand just doesn't make sense. I would like the character even more if he died. It's just more realistic and leaves you stuck with that feeling of hate towards the people who killed him and that he was just another kid trapped in the middle of an adults war. Therefore the only Harry potter related story I'm accepting is the first movie where Credence dies. The rest of the movies don't exist to me.

    Also I fucking love Jacob

    I just watched it, I am SURPRISED by how aggressively bad it is. I like plenty of bad movies but this one is plenty steps too far.

    All of this is spot on except for one thing: Anthony Goldstein actually actually IS in the books, he’s just not relevant aka the cheapest kind of “representation.”

    I mean in 2007 JK stated in an interview that Dumbledoor was gay. And Antony Gauldstien was in the books and he went out with Ginny

      Ok. But why did she state that? Did it change anything about his character’s arc in the books? Did it change anything at all? Not for me. His sexual preference means nothing to the story.

    Just tried to watch this. The evil wizard Roland Krump's plan to Make Magic Great Again by stopping magical Americans from mingling with
    non-magical illegals from Mexico was about as mind-blowing as the plot of all those Super hero series where good illegal aliens from the planet
    Mexikrypton are being persecuted by President Tronald Dump's plans to Make Earth Great Again and that Dr Who episodes where Mr Big from Sex
    and the City played a character who was probably called Nonald Kump and wanted to Make Arachnids Great Again.

    Why couldn't it just be about Dumbledore and Gridlewald? Especially since they'd be friends/lovers becoming enemies, but I guess that's be too hard for Rowling to write so lets make it about an irrelvant zookeeper.

    I feel like everyone is overlooking the big picture, she could be insecure about having another successful book series. She will always be known for HP and perhaps if she wrote a new book with a black lead and gay characters, she may think it will be overlooked, so instead, she rewrites part of a book series she completed to incorporate these ideas.
    Just a thought

    The only good thing is they did decide to push filming of the 3rd movie to help work on the story so that gives me hope that they can least try to make a good film.

    Great vid but sorry no. In the books is no mention of a white heromine sorry. Im with you it could be just fan pleasement, but canonicly it is perfectly right.

    • SaveMeMoon
      SaveMeMoon 2 days ago

      There is a mention of "Hermione's white face" sticking out from behind a tree in Prisoner of Azkaban. Apart from that though J.K took part in the casting process of the movies and she said so many times that Emma was her ideal Hermione, so I will still call her a hypocrite even if there was no mention of her skin colour in the books. If she thought Hermione should have been black she had the chance when casting the films.

    Seriously I don't understand why the first movie is so hated by hp fans. It's just amazing.. As you introduced it. Way better than hp movies ever been, and actually the story and characters are very interesting, screenplay is very good, acting too. the second one unfortunately is terrible. The plot inconsistent, the characters lost, the screenplay bad, Johnny Depp is useless.. to a point that to me it happened something in the production of this 2nd movie. Everybody blaming JK Rowling, but we can't be sure she is the one responsible...... You don't know how the production of a movie works

    i think most of the ppl will still consider Harry Potter original series as only canon, honestly after that, things got super crazy. I mean, why could not fantastic beasts be movie about crazy guy who just foking loved magic animals, traveling all around the world, doing shit, why, why everything has to be connected in some convoluted spider web of deep meaning, not mentioning the amazing tweets. I am really glad i had a chance to read the books and enjoy movies before Rowlings went bonkers.

    There is one thing you seem to forget: Grindelwald is a liar. When he says he wants to prevent ww2, it's very likely a lie to convince the other wizards of joining him. The Aurelius Dumbledore thingy is very likely a lie too just to convince Credence of joining the dark side...
