I don’t care what Joe Morgenstern says about “Fantastic Beasts” movie

I LOVED it!  We went to see the movie of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them over the weekend, and it was great.  The characters were believable, the scenery of 1920’s New York was excellent, and the action was non-stop.  I admit that I had lots of peeks at the movie from reading on Pottermore over the last few months, and everything I read just whetted my appetite for the movie.  I especially like both of the actresses who played the Goldstein sisters.  I have the book of Fantastic Beasts, and I re-read it before we went, to make sure I knew what the beasts were.  Unfortunately, the book has no illustrations!  Someone needs to issue the definitive color-illustrated  “Fantastic Beasts” book. [Are you listening, JK Rowling?]  I know the beasts were all computer-generated, but they were very cute just the same.  Meet the Demiguise:


In any case, all you Harry Potter fans out there should hie yourself to the nearest theater and see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.  And there’s a long weekend coming up, so you have no excuses!
