Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, 2016 - ★★★

An enjoyable New York-based spin-off/prequel of the Potter Universe, this was a fun couple of hours, without a lot of substance. The fantastic beasts were, well, fantastic, and I enjoyed Newt’s quiet empathy with the animals in his care. However, the rest lacked a bit of depth and backstory, and it was difficult to really engage with the characters.
