For as financially and culturally successful as the Harry Potter books and movies were, the first Fantastic Beasts movie seemed to have the shelf life of a forgettable CBS procedural, which might actually be redundant. It was somehow really successful but it seems to not really have any cultural relevance. Like I remember seeing it, but in the words of one of my favorite podcasts, Blank Check with Griffin and David, it’s not a movie that exists. This theory is also supported by the fact that that no one else seems to ever talk about it enough to stand out in anyone’s memory. Aside from the beasts, Colin Farrell as the villain, and Dan Fogler as Jacob, I’m hard pressed to find anything that stood out in that previous movie.

I’ll be honest and say that the Harry Potter series is not ‘sacred’ to me in any way, but the books were a strong part of my childhood and the films even more so. So I’m a definite fan of the franchise and even enjoyed the first Fantastic Beasts film bringing us back into the Wizarding World. So it’s difficult for me to call The Crimes Of Grindelwald a bad movie when there’s little to say that it isn’t.
