    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    ★★★½

    The time's coming, Newt... when you're going to have to pick a side.

    Another fun magic filled ride through the Potterverse is something I'm more than happy to give myself. This movie, on most accounts, delivers that. By most I mean that there's some real issues here, but it's still a solid ride.
