    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    ★★

    We're living in precarious times. The age of absolute fanservice. Although it can seem exceedingly exciting to have shared universes, spin-off movies and sequels and prequels to every known property and fanbase known to man, they can also really backfire.

    Newt Scamander, a wizard and magic zoologist, comes to New York City with a mysterious briefcase full of fantastic beasts and creatures, and it isn't long until he loses it due to a mixup, and they begin to roam free…

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
