Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - Honest Movie Review

Verdict - "A Visual Treat!"

Being one of the most anticipated films of the year, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald pleases the followers and surprises the muggles by acting more like a channel for the development of the story rather than independently being one. With highly renowned actors in the cast, the performances are enticing to watch and the visual effects and cinematography, enchanting!

Jude Law playing Albus Dumbledore maintains the poise as well as the playfulness of the beloved character, and Johnny Depp is flawless as usual. Eddie Redmayne connects Newt to the audience much more effectively than the previous movie while Dan Fogler and Alison Sudol manage to cheer the audience between intense scenes. The most impressive and fulfilling part of the film is Ezra Miller and Zoe Kravitz who were successful in giving impeccable and acute performances which were important because of the anticipation of their characters from the books.

The story picks up right from the beginning with grand escapades and entrances but towards the climax leaves you confused much like in the later Harry Potter movies. A few expected characters like Nagini (Claudia Kim), Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) are given less screen time and also Grindelwald resembles The Dark Lord a lot which is why it is hard to acknowledge his unique personality.

Enclosing I'd like to say that David Yates has done yet another spectacular job making this movie a visual treat and for JK Rowling, well, I have only one thing to say - the brightest writer of her age!

Rating - 4.5/5 | Grade - A+

Instant Movie Review #4 (The Grand Budapest Hotel)

Wes Anderson's - "The Grand Budapest Hotel"

1) Screenplay
2) Cinematography and Set Design
3) Performances and Characters
4) Film-making

Analysis: When it comes to film-making Wes Anderson has an unique style which can't be assessed by any director. His technique, elegance and bravura was inimitable and makes us feel like we're watching an impressive piece of cinema.

Set back in the 1930's, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" narrates you a typical cat and mouse story which takes place between two parties and is also accompanied with lots of affection, friendship and pugnacity. Complemented by few ingenious characters which differs from continence to ferociousness, Anderson's archetypal approach in filming the movie in a conventional way provokes you more and enlightens your visual experience.

Final Thoughts: Grand Budapest Hotel is a matchless attainment in film-making, absolutely one-of-a-kind. Ralph Fiennes implausible performance and Anderson's distinct flair can be witnessed all over the movie which makes it a must watch!
