Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
“There is nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so” Hamlet
Nevertheless, if one does not find wizards entertaining, there is not much to enjoy in this motion picture, winner of an Academy Award as it is- for Best Achievement in Costume Design.
Apart from the costumes, the Production – winner of a BAFTA for Best Production Design – Special Visual Effects – also nominated for another BAFTA- Eddie Redmayne – winner of the coveted Oscar for The Theory of Everything – has the leading role in Fantastic Beasts.
In addition, the writer is the famous billionaire- the only writer to have that much money-…J.K. Rowling.
Having rejected this rather well received feature, with a good Metascore of 66, one must admit that the creatures – well, most of them – are endearing and the efforts of Newt Scamander aka Eddie Redmayne to find the missing ones and save the “innocent” creatures are laudable.
But only if you are a fun of the genre, you will love this movie.
