Do people actually think that.

Lack of attention to detail only proves the fact that Fantastic Beasts is one of the dullest franchises in the history of movie franchises. Seriously each episode following the ginger Magizoologist and his pals from 1920's New York as they capture mythical creatures has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of acceptable casting choices and ineffective use of plot consistency, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.

Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of anyone but Yates directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody, just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her other Wizarding World ventures. The Fantastic Beasts series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-Harry Potter series in its refusal of originality, storytelling and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.

>a-at least it's good for a spin-off though
"No!"
The writing is dreadful; the concept was terrible. As I watched, I noticed that every time a character looked like they were advancing the plot, the script would instead push in another scene about "magical creatures."

I began marking on the back of an envelope every time this was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of scriptwriting. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Fantastic Beasts by an anon on /tv/. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these manchildren are watching Fantastic Beasts at 23 or 26, then when they get older they will go on to watch whatever excrement Rowling shits out next." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you watch "Fantastic Beasts" you are, in fact, trained to watch rehashed garbage.

>>100970616
What are you on? These thing isn't that vague with it's timeline.
The Fantastic Beasts movies are set in the early 20s.
Voldermort was born in the late 20s to be exact, with Harry being born in the 80s.
Dumbledore is really old, yes, being born in the late 19th century, but Hogwarths dates from the middle ages or around that time.
>>
>>100970511
Probably around 110 since DUmbledore is supposed to be ~40 in this movie. Don't you know wizards live a lot longer than average humans? I learned this from LotR.

>>100968473

Google says Voldemort was born the same year the first Fantastic beasts film was set: 1926, that flashback from Chamber of Secrets was to 1943, no idea when the second fantastic beasts is set though.

>>100970511
According to the EU stuff, Dumbledore was born in 1881.

why was dumbledore looking so old in the chamber of secrets flashback?

Jared Harris from The Terror is the son of Richard Harris from Harry Potter. There's a great family resemblance but Richard sounds evil in his natural speaking voice, it's very rare for him to be cast as a role as sympathetic as Crozier.

He was in love with Grindelwald but this movie won't make it a plot point. That's already confirmed.
His love of Grindelwald causing his inaction against Grindelwald's schemes will very likely be a major plot point in the final Fantastic Beasts movie.

These movies will span the globe. They're designed to extend and expand the franchise under the guise of being prequels. They have to keep making new stuff to keep the franchise healthy.

Fantastic Beasts is the perfect example of the modern Hollywood movie. It casts the hit Hollywood star of the minute and it's loosely connected to a wildly successful franchise. This movie was made for the sole purpose of making money. There is no other reason. Rowling, Yates, the actors, everyone... all in it for the money.

It's easy to imagine the pre-production meetings... You know, that cute tree in Guardians of the Galaxy was really popular among audiences, let's have one of those. And people really liked that dive bar with lots of goofy creatures and fun music in Star Wars, let's have one of those too. It's frustrating when I hear people call this film imaginative. There's a reason all the fantastic beasts look so cute. Because toys.

Yet again we see Eddie Redmayne overact, taking the role of "autistic British wizard" to a level not needed. There was no chemistry between any of the actors, which made for awkward moments throughout the whole 2+ hours runtime. The relationship between Colin Ferrell and Ezra Miller especially seems unintentionally predatory.

There are two completely separate plots that are sloppily connected. One of the plots is pushed so hard and is used only to create a franchise of this thing. If they focused on only the fantastic beasts instead of the bizarre possessed horror aspect with a cheap twist, the film might not have been half bad.

In the end, yet again, almost a whole city gets destroyed in the climax. By now it is beyond tiring and by my count that is how FOUR big budget movies have ended in 2016. And by what, a fucking dark cloud. The whole film, each and every scene, is predictable, features terrible CGI, obvious blue screen, lifeless sound stages, and is riddled with plot holes
>>
>>100976502
No it's not, you fucking idiot. Dumbledore was born in 1881. He had siblings and shit. And he didn't have the Philosophers Stone for long. He took possession of it to protect it from Voldemort at the same time Harry was coming to Hogwarts.

Some of us are a bit more progressive and don't assume a character's sexuality based on their clothes. Apparently Rowling is less so

It was originally going to be 3, but supposedly Rowling couldn't condense the story into just 2 more after the first. The "Fantastic Beasts" bit is just a cynical conceit to have another evil wizard Hitler story. As the series progresses it will cease to be about Newt and magizoology and just be Dumbledore vs Grindelwald.
