  1. A weird statement to make in a thread like this, but okay?
  2. Surprisingly his performance is not getting as much flak as I thought it would. Most of the critics just thought he was just kinda "there" in this movie, a few still don't like him of course, and then a couple have said they actually enjoyed his acting here. The fan response across social media for now seems to indicate that most people actually liked him or at least thought he was okay.
  3. I'll just leave this here https://variety.com/2017/film/news/rotten-tomatoes-scores-dont-impact-box-office-study-finds-1202554546/
  4. Might want to just see it alone if you can. If she's not the least bit interested in HP then she won't like this at all.
  5. I think demographic wise this movie will be more popular among the younger crowd, those currently in their 20's to early 30's, those who grew up alongside the Potter films/books as they came out. The people most obsessed with the Wizarding world tend to be on the younger side anyway, at least in my experience.
  6. There's not as much vitriolic hate towards this movie compared to movies like Venom or The Predator, but there is a lot of confusion, disenchantment, and just plain old "why did I have to see this?". I even saw one critic say that this movie prevented him from seeing Creed 2 which irritated him. But the reactions I've seen from non critics on facebook, letterboxd, and even twitter have been pretty positive. I do think this film will resonate with those fans who just like being in this world, but if you want a good movie then......you may be disappointed.
  7. Brace yourselves y'all, the reactions from twitter seem rather negative, mostly negative from critics who went to one of the screenings tonight. Now I expect the RT score to go down to 50, but who knows. I am a bit worried though. Saw someone even say they found this worse than both Hobbit or the Star Wars prequels.
  8. Seems a bit hyperbolic. I'd say most people actually don't mind. I've only seen a very minuscule amount of people complain about the beasts on the internet. Way more people have complained about Johnny Depp than Eddie Redmayne being in these movies, neither of which will be going anywhere anytime soon.
  9. So far I’ve noticed about 3 articles on the internet talking about “the most brutal reviews of FB2” and “why critics hated FB2”. Now I’ve read a fair amount these reviews and nobody really seems to hate it, more like they were confused or unenthused but not hateful.
  10. EW just gave a fairly positive review, giving this film a B- https://ew.com/movies/2018/11/11/fantastic-beasts-crimes-of-grindelwald-review/
  11. I really wish Steve Kloves would come back and help write these movies, as he has both the screenplay writing experience and the experience with this world. I'm sure he gave Rowling a few pointers on script writing but he needs to actually be her partner and help her structure this story.
  12. I get what you’re saying and agree to an extent, but I feel like this film would have to get The Last Jedi level of dissatisfaction amongst the viewers for there to be any massive shakeups in production. Also getting bad scores is no guarantee for improvements down the road, the Transformers series is a prime example of this.
  13. I don't think this movie will turn out like Solo did at the box office, the marketing for this has been solid and even amped up a bit in this past month. It may make less than the first one but nowhere near flop territory.
  14. Aaaaand it's back to a 59%, putting it right next to The Grinch but with 50 less reviews. But which one will overall get the better reception?
  15. There certainly is more meat to the story here, the problem a few people seem to be having is that there's too much meat. But if you find that meat tasty then you're likely to enjoy the meal as a whole, if you get what I'm saying.
