I’ve been having mixed emotions on this new Fantastic Beasts Movie. And we almost went to see it until my fear of it being bad took me over and we went home today. If anybody has seen it, I need honest ratings and reviews (no spoilers) and let me know if it is worth seeing in theaters or on DVD. For I’ve been seeing mixed reviews online about it either pleased or not pleased with it so I am confused.



She shall be the Chosen Child of Thor, given the power of Storms, and lead all Lightning Dragons into a battle that shall decide the fate of the Archipelago: Destruction or Freedom.


Welcome to my updated Signature. (With hopefully better images and links!)


My Viking, Firesome, is the legendary child of lightning and thunder, which is the Great God Thor's main element hence her steed being the mighty Skrill itself. She is destined in a prophecy to one day be the queen of Skrill, leading them into battle against Grimmel and his Evil Forces to unleash her full power of Lightning. And with her Skrill, Azyru by her side, almost nothing can take them down!

Title: The Phantom Skrill Rider


Name: Azyru

Species: Skrill

Gender: Female

Color: Gray with Purple Highlights

Bio (Firesome):

Firesome is a young girl who had been a slavegirl to Grimmel for ten years since she was stolen away from her family by him when Grimmel raided her home island, killing her parents. She finds her freedom after meeting a fierce young female Skrill who she sets free and calls Azyru after the two form a secret bond. They escape together outwitting Grimmel's Deathgrippers and going as far as they can away from their tormenter. While resting on a small island, Firesome receives a vision from her real birth father, the Mighty Thor, and he tells her to journey to an island of Dragon Riders.

After months of traveling and bonding, Firesome and her new bond sister dragon Azyru happen on the island of Berk, meeting Chief Hiccup who takes an interest in Firesome's strong connection, almost as strong as him and Toothless, and offers her to train dragons and ride alongside other students in their School of Dragons.



Bio (Azyru):

Azyru is a Skrill who once lived fierce and free, ruling the skies until Grimmel shot her down, the Deathgripper sedative knocking her out, and wakes in a cage. She befriends a strange young slavegirl that Azyru grows very attatched to after a time, and when Firesome breaks her free, she vows to protect her like a big sister. The two would fly together for a long time.

oh, easy

I liked it more than all the other harry potter movies, but FB 1is still my absolute favorite. Honestly, I like Newt WAY more than Harry. Definitely go see it, but just to warn you: it will probably leave you wishing he third movie was coming out next month as opposed to in two years.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them is Better

I just bought the screenplay and I didn't like it at all. Yes, it was funny at parts and the twists are great, but the structure of it feels as though this is only half a film and that this was completely unnecessary for the plot as a whole.

As a percentage? 30%

Hope this helped.

Contrary to the beliefs of

Contrary to the beliefs of those friends I saw it with last night, I didn't mind it.

It definitely has that "Harry Potter" feel to it, but it's DARK. Themes are much heavier than the first FB movie (which I love btw). I guess it gives off the vibes of Dea.thly Hallows Pt 2, whereas FB1 was more the Chamber of Secrets sorta thing.

And cinemas or DVD? Cinemas, 100% If you don't like it, you're not then stuck with the DVD eh? Also, depending on your TV size (Whether it's big or small) it'll look so much better in the cinema.

Plot twists are still there (although some are quite obvious) and it ties into the main HP series pretty well.


And if I were rating the 10 movies of this wizarding world, it'd look something like this:

1. Dea.thly Hallows pt 2

2. Goblet of Fire

3. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

4. Chamber of Secrets

5. FB - Crimes of Grindlewald

6. Prisoner of Azkaban

7. Half Blo.od Prince

8. Dea.thly Hallows pt 1

9. Philosopher's Stone

10. Order of the Phoenix


But that's just my silly opinion, you don't have to put faith in it.

I watched it yesterday at the cinema and as a Harry Potter fan, I really liked it. The ending was a cliffhanger. You will need to remember what happened in the Fantastic Beasts 1, so I suggest you rewatch it before watching the sequel. I also suggest you watch it at the cinema.

Ok to answer you first

Ok to answer you first question, here my list from most favourite to less. Remember this is only my preference and it maybe different from yours and the others:

1. Philospher's Stone

2. Deathly hallows part 2

3. Chamber of Secret

4. Goblet of fire

5. Fantastic beast and where to find them

6. Deathly hallows part 1

7. Crime of grindelwald

8. Half-blo.od prince

9. Prisoner of Azkaban

10. Order of the pheonix


Now as for my opinion on it (I will try not to be too spoily) I like it, me and my friend all have a good time in the theater but I can see why some people wouldn't like it. I haven't watch any review video yet but I've discussed with my sister who doesn't like it and I concluded that I like it because:

- I care about Wizard world world building

- don't remember the details in the franschires enough to catch the plotholes

The thing is...on it's on it's not really an enjoyable movie for the casual fan. It lacks the simple plot of the first movie, a guy chasing down magical creatures that people can enjoy and focus entirely on wizard world building and grindelwald dramas. The movie story structure is more similar to those detective movie with a lot of characters group with their own agenda to focus on and they're slowly come together which I happen to like.  So if you care about the world building, want to see what goes down in that time of the history, the deal with dumbledore and everything you'll like it but then again, I'm in the middle of the two thing I listed. My sister, who also care about world building more than me and remember every canon don't like it and said that it contradict with the harry potter universe too much and have a lot of plotholes (that I didn't recognize until she pointed it out). so there's that. Hope this helps!

TRACKING because Harry Potter. XD

Anyway, I'm also about to see Crimes of Grindelwald when I have time. For the FB's I can understand the mixed reviews, but I'm personally excited to see the new one. I liked Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them pretty much, so I guess if you enjoyed the first one, you'd probably like the second one too?

Hi! :)
  1. Prisoner of Askaban
  2. Fantastic Beasts 
  3. Half Blood Prince
  4. Deathly Hallows Part 1
  5. Goblet of Fire
  6. Crimes of Grindewald
  7. Philospher's Stone
  8. Deathly Hallows Part 2
  9. Chamber of Secrets
  10. Order of the Phoenix

Most people do have some problems with Crimes of Grindewald. I enjoyed it however I would agree a) it's a filler b) there were too many plot twists, confusing plot line (no direction), and introductions to characters and things we never saw again.

I'd say go watch SuperCarlinBrothers review on this movie because they do the best job at discussing this movie and everything about it.
