    ★★★★

    This is legit. Way better expected. It's so pure and simple with the intention to tell a story from 20,000 years ago, but in a visual way that really works well.

    A magical mish-mash of half baked, "wait, what just happened?" ideas and a roster of characters few can remember. It's such a weird movie, very somber and honestly quite depressing, with so much going on that none of it seems to really matter. I kept thinking, "huh?" So much passes by and I really only cared about Newt and his fantastic creatures.

    My only hope that something cool might happen was when Grindelwald took a huge hit of his skull…
