    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    ★★½

    One of the biggest disappointments of the year. "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" has a lot of things to like about it. There's some wonderful character moments, the third act definitely picks things up a bit and the performances are all great particularly Depp and Law. But the movies biggest sins are the convoluted storytelling and a lack of any real plot or conflict. Depp is great as Grindelwald but his villain honestly is stuck with hardly anything to…

    The Intern

    ★★★½

    It's predictable, cliched, and it does run to long containing some unnecessary subplots but "The Intern" is still a really sweet and enjoyable film to watch. Robert De Niro is terrific and Anne Hathaway is really good as well and the two of them do share some really good chemistry. The tone also balances drama, comedy and a little romance pretty nicely as well. It's nothing to special, but it's still a irresistibly charming crowd pleaser.
