    Sure Crimes of Gindelwald is bad, but don't let that distract you from the fact Brad's wife was fired from Crackle Barrel after 11 years of faithful service.

    Anthony Goldstein is in the books not the films but was never described as Jewish

    I am a middle class Mexican bisexual living in Texas and i do believe that certain people are under represented

    That being said, you better believe when say that very little things piss me off more than movies/shows/stories are inclusive just for the sake of being inclusive and nothing else

    They really should have separated these two concepts. Let Newt have his own movie that's fun and whimsical with magical creatures, and THEN make a series about Grindelwald with Dumbledore as the main character coming to terms with someone he loves turning to the dark side and being the reason his sister is dead. That would have been the better idea and I would watch the shit out of those movies. Instead Rowling once again wrote herself into a corner and now has to think of reasons why Newt, a zookeeper like you said, is supposed to be important in these movies.
    In conclusion, Rowling really needs to embrace the concept of death of the author.

    Idk why everyone’s so surprised Rowling started retconning shit. She probably receives death threats from extreme leftists on a daily basis. The RUclipr makes a great point, and I agree with him, but unfortunately there’s a small group of people that are both righteous and stupid

    What they should've done is have the film's function more like Doctor Who with Newt appearing at various events in history and then moving on. It would've been a fun anthology series and given them more artistic freedom.

    Honestly, I kind of think that's where they were going with it in the first movie and then changed their minds (or more accurately lost their minds) in the second one.

    Yesh, she dropped the fuck out of that ball. It's like she said "fuck yooouuu" to her past self and murdered a decent movie. A decent movie mind you that was a cash grab of its own. She could have just started a movie series of random characters that had small things to do with Grindlewald. Maybe the movie could have been about Zoe Kravitz? She seems to enjoy black women. The movie was convoluted enough. Could have been sold as "Here's how black women were treated in the 50s? Or was it 40s? Idk" and young kids/adults would have gobbled that shit up. Hell make the woman gay. They'd love that. Then have that stupid ass baby sequence play out and then reveal they stumbled upon Grindlewald. Then kill her off. The next movie would have me like "I wonder what next random character they're gonna tie into this!" and I'd be excited for a new Harry Potter franchise that'll only disappoint because that Dumby fight is gonna be lame as hell and not worth the 10 movie wait. Also the holocaust? lmao really?

    One thing I disagree is that Dumbledore wasn't intended to be gay in the books. I agree it should have been said in the text, but honestly, his relationship and backstory with Grindewald makes a lot more sense that way.

    Rowling is done. None of us (except Mark Twain) is infinitely creative, and she has reached her limit. As someone who reached her own limit at 7 with the epic saga of Turkey Lurkey and his thrilling escape from the pilgrim hunters, I recognize the signs. She needs to find another hobby.

    They did with Grindy what happened in real life with Hitler. Just by looking at the asshole any rational thinking person would place a high probability that the fucker is off mentally... yet they gained blindly devoted followers regardless of the fact that they both looked like they actually eat babies and draw pictures on the walls with their feces.

    17:28 then how does Harry use it on a toad in Order of the Phoenix? When or where is it even mentioned that Accio doesn't work on living creatures? The first time it comes up in the books is when Harry is desperatly trying to learn it in Goblet of Fire. Then again in OotP, where he uses it on a freaking TOAD. Then it comes up a whole lot more, but as far as I've come with my rereading of Harry Potter (right now I'm at Snape's memory at the end of Deathly Hallows), this arbitrary limitation of the summoning charm has never come up. And here's this part straight from Pottermore: "[...] you can summon any book, instrument *or animal* with a wave of the wand and the word Accio!". So I'm left to wonder, why do people claim that? It's like, really wrong.

    In defense of JK...
    I actually thought Dumbledore was implied to have been in love with Grindelwald when I read seventh book. Although, an intense sexual relationship was not at all what I was thinking. And it isn’t necessary to tell us about it either.
    Anthony Goldstein was mentioned at one point, I think. It barely counts, but he does exist.
    Nagini’s curse sounds like something JK would have wanted to put in the books but dropped because it served no purpose, so it might have already been planned.

    I think a way they could have incorporated newt into the movies is to have Grindelwald try to use a massive fantastic beast in his war and that they need newt cause he is an expert on magical creatures

  • coolguyhino92

    Although your opinion is valid, all I want to say is: Dude, watch the movies. Listen to the small details. Instead of just asking, "why is this happening", and leaving it at that, put some effort in and try to answer it.
    Q: Why did Grindelwald go back to save his follower when he was free, especially when he threw the lizard thing out the window?
    A: If you look at the scene right as they're about to leave, the real GW(who is pretending to be the other guy) hands over the box with his 'wand'. Right after, the woman tells him to give up the blood pact. GW was planning on only giving up the wand box that really had the lizard in it. not the blood pact. So he had to go back to get it. And yes, part of it was to help the fake GW. He rewards him with a new tongue, and thanks him. So why did he throw the lizard out the window? "So needy" He had just thanked the lizard, calmed him down, and embraced him. It then motions to get more affection from GW, so he tossed it. He's not there to baby.

    Q:Why does the government want Newt to be an auror?/go after GW?
    A: They don't. They know he he wants to travel. Theseus got him an appeal. They hold the promise of travel over his head unless he collects Credence. NOT GW. Nothing to do with permanently joining them.

    Q:Why can't Newt travel?
    A: They think the trouble he caused in NY was under the orders of DD. And they know there is some link between DD and GW. Until they get answers, or do what they want, no travel.

    Q: Why does DD ask Newt? Why not someone else?
    A: Other than is being said that DD literally cannot move against GW because of the blood pact, he asks Newt because: 1. GW and his colleagues are under surveillance. 2. DD knows Newt will do it because it's the right thing to do. Not for gain or compensation. 3. DD knows Newt really wont ever say no to him.

    Q: Why does the memory wipe potion have such a specific circumstance? It's such a bad retcon.
    A: Ok, 1. It's not a potion. It's a venom from one of the beasts whose SIDE EFFECT is loss in negative memories. Not some potion with an overly specific loophole. 2. This was stated in the 1st FB movie. So it wasn't just something they came up with last minute in this movie to explain why Jacob had his memory back as a retcon.

    Q: Why does accio work on the niffler? It can't be used on living things.
    A: Yes, but he wasn't using it on the niffler. He was using it on all the stolen goods in its pouch. Look at the scene. See all the crap being pulled out of its pouch? That's what's being pulled. The niffler is along for the ride.

    Q: If Leta and Tina are government officials, why can't they get out of the record?
    A: Tina is there under false pretenses with Newt posing as Leta and Theseus. Plus Newt is kinda wanted atm, so they can't really just waltz in and out. And as for Leta, although she is in HER records, she drew 1st blood with those big eyes protector cats. Newt stated that as imposing as they are, they won't hurt you unless you attack them...since she didn't know that, she attacked. So she ran.

    Q: Why is every character at the crypt randomly?
    A: Seriously? Each person is there in some way do to GW.
    -Leta because she was going nuts about the Credence Corvus rumors, and needed her family tree to prove once and for all she's not crazy. But it was moved to the CRYPT. She even found a card plainly stating as such.
    -Credence because he wants nothing more than to know who he is, and GW subtexed him into going to the CRYPT when he visited him on the roof.
    -Nagini because she followed Credence.
    -Kama because he was tracking Credence to kill him.
    -Theseus because he was sent to the CRYPT along with other government people to apprehend GW at his rally.
    oh, not to mention the BIG BLACK MASS IN THE SKY that was stated to be a beacon for GW's followers to meet at the CRYPT. GW put bread crumbs for everyone who ended up their.

    Q: If GW says he's not a killer, why does he kill so many people, magic and non magic, then try to convince everyone to join him to kill muggles?
    A: GW states he doesn't 'hate' muggles. With every horrible thing he's done, none of it was because of hate. He's doing all of this because he sees it as, it is in HUMAN nature to kill and destroy and bla bla. As in, humans aren't choosing to do what they do. So he won't hate muggles for what is really a genetic defect in his eyes. He's above hate for something he sees as not in their control. He's trying to stop an attack he's sure will happen well before it does. Yes, he'll kill anyone who gets in his way, tries to stop him, or is NECESSARY for his plan. He is out right livid when one of his followers is killed during his rally. She did not need to die for his plan. He shows remorse for her. Apologizing to her body, and demanding her remains be returned to her family.

    Q: Why does Queenie side with GW? It is SO out of character for her.
    A: GW has a silver tongue. The gift of gab. Remember at the beginning where it was said he had to have his tongue cut out because he was VERY PERSUASIVE? That's how he got her. He appealed to her by explaining that his true end goal is to live in a world where magic and non magic can live freely together without persecution. She wants nothing but to be with Jacob. She can't do that....unless the world changes to allow it.

    Q: Why do all the characters stay at the rally and during the fight in the crypt? "The strangest thing is that these characters can just leave this battle if they wanted to"
    A: ok, Wtf. This is some CinemaSins level ignorance. They stay for the rally because they have to. The second they walk in, they realize it was a trap to get them there. All the doors close, and followers stand guard. But AS SOON as the blue flame circle appears, they're trapped. It very clearly shows that when the followers apparate out, they're fine. But when ANY of the Gov. people try it, death by melting blue flame. It even shows some trying to run up the steps away from it, death by melting blue flame. Even getting a comment from GW stating 'No cheating. play by the rules.' Followers leave unharmed. Non followers either join or die. Period. Even the emo hair follower melted when he tried to jump through the ring. Either because he wasn't a true follower, or because he questioned GW enough to be deemed not loyal. Even Queenie. It started hurting her when she jumped through. She despised the man until that morning. But even though she may not be 100% on GW methods, she agrees with what the outcome will be, and is allowed through. Even Leta's plot armor fails when she refuses to join him.

    Everyone else is only able to apparate out when GW turns into the blue fire dragon and leaves.
    ps, GW doesn't 'summon' the 'fire elemental', it IS him.

    Q: Why can they apparate on Hogwarts grounds. It was stated they couldn't.
    A: The validity of this has come up before, but the rule has clearly been either broken, not true, circumstantial, or biased depending on the one who is doing it. DD does it many times in Half-blood prince. Even bringing Harry along. At one point saying, "Being me, has its advantages"
    So remember the flexing magical affairs leader guy who says he can do whatever he wants? I'm sure he has a high enough paygrade to apparate on school grounds. And with him being the one actually doing the apparating, there's no reason everyone can't hold on and tag along. Why the fuck they're all there in the 1st place is another matter entirely, but my point still stands.

    Dude, no kidding. What's the motivation for wanting him to help take down Grindelwald? He already dueled Grindelwald, and there's no semblance of ambiguity as to who won. He got his ass handed to him on a silver platter. And on top of that, he has zero interest in any of it. He's not even an asset, he's just a liability. Why the fuck would they want him?

    Now, I was a big Harry Potter fan as a kid, but I got older and didn’t read beyond book 4. I started to see through the cracks of the writing.
    This film only proves that JK really can’t write. She didn’t know how to write a protagonist beyond ‘the chosen one’.
