Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a textbook at Hogwarts written by Newt Scamander, so we (viewers) were taken way back even before Harry Potter was born; making this movie a prequel to HP series. The story started with Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) walking through the streets of New York City with his suit case which turns out to be a portal to his menagerie of magical creatures. Due to some turn of events Newt mistakenly swapped his suit case toΒ a suit case full of bread that belongs to Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) an aspiring baker, a no maj (muggle). Jacob, not aware of what happened, opened the suit case full of magical creatures.

When some of the creatures managed to escape, Newt, sisters Tina (Katherine Waterson) and Queenie (Allison Sudol) – American wizards, worked together to gather the creatures. And on their journey to gathering the magical creatures, they discovered the ill motives of MACUSA head of security Percival Graves (Collin Farrell).

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them is a big feast for the eyes, it is thoroughly animated and perfectly edited. From watching the movie itself, everyone can tell that the animators did an excellent job.This movie is richly colored and is totally cinematic. The shots taken,the lighting, the backdrops were perfect for each scene. Plot wise, it is thin but it surely is laying down the foundation for the next 4 installments. Yes, there will be 4 more movie installments! Yaaaaaay!




Sausage Party

I’m sure almost everybody knows what this movie is all about so I won’t delve into the details of this movie for the sake of the others who doesn’t know about it. πŸ™‚

I have been wanting to see this movie for the longest time but my schedule and demanding school load won’t permit me. So last week, after midterm exams, I made sure to see this movie, thankfully I saw an HD copy of it online. It started normally like how most of the animated movies would start – with a song number. πŸ™‚ But then, when the characters or should I say, the foods started talking, it was like a curse machine and that is just the beginning of the movie. LOL! So if you are easily offended especially by profanity, I suggest you stay away from this movie πŸ˜€

I think the producers and writers of this movie are on crack when they came with this idea! It is outrageous and totally original. It is crazy but if you look past the craziness of it, there’s still a moral in this movie. πŸ˜‰

Sausage Party:Β A movie so bizarre, so profane and so quietly virtuous that it works.
