Review: "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them"

It truly was fantastic.

Review: "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them"
Collider

For those of you who love Harry Potter as much as I do, I'm sure you've been looking forward to the release of "Fantastic Beasts" just like me.

I was able to see the movie with my family in the theater and let me tell you something: it truly was fantastic. Don't worry, I won't give away any spoilers or anything like that, but I will gush about how much I already love this movie.

I'll start off by saying that J. K. Rowling is an absolute genius and should be constantly praised and adored for her work. If you couldn't tell from all of the Harry Potter books and movies, everything is thought out so completely and intricately interwoven that there are absolutely no loose ends and there's a new, surprising connection after every turn, and that continues into this new film. It's insane.

"Fantastic Beasts" takes place 70 years before the first Harry Potter, but connections are made to information we already have from watching the Harry Potter movies and it's incredibly refreshing to see everything slowly coming together. It's like we can breathe a little easier already. (I promised that I wouldn't spoil anything for those who haven't seen it yet, but pay attention to characters' names when you do see it!)

I think it's also important to mention how great the graphics are. Everything is put together so seamlessly that everything looks incredibly real most of the time, which is pretty impressive for a movie about magic. A lot of times in other movies you can see where something has been layered on top of other pieces or when they use a green screen. I may have just been so absorbed in the the movie I didn't notice, but, after taking a few classes film and graphics, there were very few times where I thought something could have been done better or differently.

This film is one of the best movies I've seen and I'm not just saying that because I love all things Harry Potter. I highly recommend seeing it as soon as you possibly can.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
