Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog! It’s time for a film dose, so keep reading to discover my opinion about the two big releases last year.

Yes, I’m talking about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. If you haven’t heard of them before (which is pretty weird, because they have had a huge blurb) you don’t know what you are missing! And for all the fans that have already watched it, don’t forget to tell me your opinion.

During the last months I have seen these two films and today I’m here to share them with you. So let’s start the post!

We will first talk about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them because is the one that first came up. This is suppose to be a prequel of the much fame movies Harry Potter, but this time the adventure takes place in New York and in the 20’s.

In America things are very different between wizards and No-Majs (the name for Muggles in United States) and this is what discovers Newt Scamander with many other things when he arrives in America.

Newt Scamander, is a wizard that arrives in New York, a city where things are getting more and more complicated for wizards and witches. He is wearing with him a magical suitcase that contains fantastic creatures and here is where the adventure begins.

Holding a mysterious leather suitcase in his hand, Newt Scamander, a young activist wizard from England, visits New York while he is on his way to Arizona. Inside his expanding suitcase hides a wide array of diverse, magical creatures that exist among us, ranging from tiny, twig-like ones, to majestic and humongous ones. It is the middle of the 20s and times are troubled since the already fragile equilibrium of secrecy between the unseen world of wizards and the ordinary or “No-Maj” people that the MACUSA Congress struggles to maintain, is at risk of being unsettled.

This film is such a good one to see when you want to spend a good time and it’s a most if you are a Harry Potter fan. I have heard many opinions about it and most of them are positive. In my opinion, I liked watching it, but I still prefer the Harry Potter films, there is more magic and friendship involved.

On the other side, some people prefer this film instead of the Harry Potter series because they love the Magical World of J.K. Rowling but they don’t like the Harry Potter character.

So I think is a good film to watch and have fun with your family or friends!

And now we move into Star Wars, as many as you know last December a new film from Star Wars came up and its called Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The new film, it’s located between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope.

It’s about the group of people who stole the Death Star plans to then be able to destroy it. The main character of the film is a young girl called Jyn that was separated from her father since she was young. Now it’s time for her to learn what to do and try to choose the right decision that it’s not always easy.

And as they say in the fourth episode of Star Wars, lots of people die to get those plans.

All looks lost for the Rebellion against the Empire as they learn of the existence of a new super weapon, the Death Star. Once a possible weakness in its construction is uncovered, the Rebel Alliance must set out on a desperate mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. The future of the entire galaxy now rests upon its success.

Although I’m not a huge fan of star wars, this film has surprised me positively. I was expecting to be more a slightly bad film just made to make money and put it in between the two films to make something. But no, it’s such a good film that I really enjoy watching and it has a little bit of all, adventure, family, friendship…

So I totally recommend you to watch it!

And that’s all for today’s post! I hope you like it and that you enjoy reading it! Now you have more films to add to your list if you haven’t watch them yet.

Share in the comments if you already watched one of these films and if you liked them. And if you haven’t yet, go, watch them and tell me how it was!

    I agree with your review on Fantastic Beasts, it was good but didn’t give me that “harry potter” vibe, although shame of me for comparing, obviously it was going to be different but I just love the Wizardry world so much I was hoping for more of that..

    xo, JJ
