    I bought the Cursed Child and realized just now that I never read it. Is it worth the read? I’m not huge on the stage style format so I could use the advice. ☺️

    I don't think it sucks at all, I'd say it's more unsatisfying or displeasing. I know that there are more than a few not well thought through things in it, but it's just the second part. I think, just 'cause of an unborn McGonnagall, a weird childswap story (which could be a lie from Grindelwald) and Queeny, you shouldn't doom an entire series. Like I said, it's just the second part and Rowling has three more tries to straighten out the story and to think things more through this time.
    And why is everyone making jokes about Dumbledore being gay, it was known all along.

    They have to fly Grindelwald to the other prison in Europe and it has been established that you can't use any form of teleportation to cover that distance, hence why Newt took a boat in the first film

    1. It's actually never stated at any point that Hermione is white. Her only description is her large frizzy hair and buck teeth. It's not "just to appease black fans" it's more of the fact that it was left open-ended to be able to interpreted as any race.
    2. Her "Random Tweets" often times come about because shes asked the same dang questions over and over and over again and so finally she decides to answer on mass. If she doesnt answer fans get upset, if she does answer everyone makes fun of her for it. As for why she didnt reveal that Dumbledore was gay, it's because it doesnt have anything to do with his character.
    3. The dont want him to take down Grindlewald. They want him to track and dispose of Ezra Millers character, because as you stated earlier, he wrote the book on monsters. Their only other viable option was what appears to be an unstable wizard with high magical prowess, so they would rather have a meek magizoologist that they can control vs a strong badass wizard they cant.
    4. It was HEAVILY hinted in the end of the first movie that Ezra Miller didnt die and even Newt knew that he didnt die.
    5. Jacob was under a heavy charm during that time of explanation. Chances are that Queenie got him to believe that was how his memories came back. We know at the end of the last movie some of his memories still existed but were viewed more like dreams or creativity rather than an actual memory. Chances are Queenie rekindled with him, and later charmed him to ensure he couldnt leave as well as spill the beans on how he got his memories.
    6. Shes a circus attraction because she isnt an Animagus, anyone can BE an animagus, Nagini was a malidictus. A person with a rare magical blood curse that forces them to turn. It's not so much a "oh look shes a snake" as much as "oh look at the freak with a rare disorder" very similar to bearded lady's, conjoined twins, contortionists, and just about any "non normal" humans in circus' and shows.
    7. The characters didnt end up there "randomly" each one found something out that pointed them in that direction.
    8. Grindlewald is using images of WWII as scare tactics to get others to his side, what's more grindelwald barely views those hes killed as people, even going as far as calling humans beast of burdens.
    9. We don't know how far the apparation ban extends, as well as when it was instated.
    10. Did you watch the movie at all? Like actually pay attention to it?

      TrainerBlue192 that’s such bullshit, the illustrations of the books depict Hermione as white, the covers of the book depict Hermione as white, Rowling backpedaling and using the excuse of saying “she was never explicitly described as white” is a pathetic excuse and was done solely to win brownie points.

    • TrainerBlue192
      TrainerBlue192 13 hours ago

      Regardless of the fact, it's never explicitly stated she was white. Ofcourse the merch will have Emma Watsons portrayal of her because that's what the fans want to buy. Just like how Harry Potter had green eyes but because Daniel was allergic to the contacts the merch and movies have him have brown eyes because that's just the movies continuity even if its incorrect.

    still dont really get it why people are so damn surprised Credence still lived. I mean, I can understand that its hard to notice because I only noticed it the second or third time I was watching the first movie but in the end of it it did foreshadow that the obscurus has definitely survived. For me I can say that I do not really know why the obscurus came back in the not-so-damaged body of credence but I figured maybe because the obscurus was heckin powerful he preserved the adult credence somehow in order to have a strong embodiement. For sure it had to seem like Credence and the obscurus inside of him died.
    Just my thoughts, kinda wanna know what yall think of it :)

    I would’ve liked the Fantastic Beasts series better if it didn’t try to be Harry Potter. I don’t want another overarching story about defeating an evil wizard and stopping a massive wizard war. I’ve already seen this story. I’d much rather have episodic adventures about Newt Scamander, his baker sidekick, and their respective girlfriends travelling around the world looking for and dealing with dangerous and fantastic beasts.

    No Grindlewad, no Dumbledore cameos, no Hogwarts fanservice.

    Just a globe-trotting adventure with magic animals.

    You know? Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

    Rowling is a genius, but this is why you eventually have to remove the Boss from the Board. They ruin everything because they don't know when to stop.

  • Adrijana Radosevic

    I um.. off topic, on the jews topic... I figured there really WERE no Jews in Hogwarts? Or Catholics, or Orthodox Christians, or Christians in general, or Moslems... I mean the books DO mention witch hunts - which is what actually drove the rift between the muggles and the wizarding world - and DO show Hogwarts students celebrating Wiccan hollidays like.. .Yule... and.. .the Solstice.. and... Yule... ok not TOO many details but I thought the books were rather CLEAR - ok, Implicitly - that these wizards and witches were you know... WIZARDS, and WITCHES? And sure they go home for christmas hollidays, but christmas is WAY older than Christianity, likely even older than judaism...

    Anthony Goldstein was a Ravenclaw prefect with Patil and was part of the DA. She didn't just retroactively add him in. He was a part of book 5 and popped up during the Battle of Hogwarts with "Both Patil twins were there, as were Terry Boot, Ernie Macmillan, Anthony Goldstein, and Michael Corner." Just because he wasn't part of the golden trio doesn't mean he didn't exist. Takes like five seconds to look him up.

  • Hecht

    Back in the day, when we were told that Dumbledore was gay, I didn't really think of it as a big deal. I mean, during Harry Potter he's an old, unmarried man, so his sexuality never mattered. I actually thought, it was a nice little trivia, nothing more. But, yeah, nowadays things are out of control. I'm not a big fan of the Harry Potter universe anymore. I read the books, saw the movies and I really liked them. I didn't see Fantastic Beasts, but I listened to what other people tell me about it (like my sister, who didn't speak as critically about the movies as they probably deserve). I did think about it, but when I learned that it was supposed to be a prequel, I immediately lost interest. They could have just made a funny, light-hearted movie about a slightly awkward guy, who's searching for a lot of cute and some dangerous fantastical beasts in a fantastical world. Heck, the main threat doesn't always have to be a purely evil guy that wants to murder a lot of innocents! Sometimes a raging dragon is enough.
    Anyway, those were my thoughts. Sometimes I just like to share an ramble on about what's going on in my head.

    The only fanfic change I agree with that Rowling made was Harry & Hermione being together.

    AND...... They should've just given us "The Life & Lies of Dumbledore" movie, ending with the badass, most awesome wizard duel of ALL TIME. 🤔

    My theory about that baffling twist ending is that it's given by Grindelwald. You know, the main villain of the series. Maybe he's not being entirely (like, more than 0.001%) honest there.
    Then again, maybe I'm also giving ENTIRELY too much credit to Rowling at this stage of her career as a writer.

    The opening scene with the prison escape was only included to push sales of 4DX Screenings. I work in a cinema, and it was heavily leaned on as a sale point for the film. It's the same for most block buster movies now they will include a 4DX heavy scene to push people into upgrading to 4DX seats as it costs twice as much and on opening week the film distributor gets 100% of the box office.
    More Gimmick, less story, more cash.
    *4DX being, Moving seats with rain, lightening, smoke, wind and snow.*
    Imagine watching Spy kids 3D without 3D, it wouldn't make sense. Many parts of this film were only made to be part of the 4DX gimmick.

    • E P W
      E P W Day ago

      @DanVzare Also if you want to check if this is an active gimmick in a movie, check for the 4DX logo in the credits at the end. If it's there then there is a 4DX based scene somewhere that will probably make 0 sense to the rest of the film.

    J.K. Rowling is an amazing World Builder.....just story wise not that good. Honestly, wasn't a big fan of the original books. Book 1-3 pretty amazing. Then book 4 comes about and it is overshadowed by Ron's drama. Then book 5 is overshadowed by Harry's hormones. Book 6 everyone is hormone crazy and in a bad mood. Book 7, kind of the thing, but it ends in an interesting way and makes the books as a whole a decent series.

    Great video - and I loathe to defend any aspect of this film, but I don't think Grindlewald's 'goal' was to, as you say, 'stop the Holocaust'.
    I believe the argument he was making was 'see what the Muggles will build if we don't make a move now' in reference to the Atomic Bomb, which is a completely separate development from the policy of extermination against Jews instigated by Nazi Germany.
