I am with you on the characters, but it's Newt who takes the cake uselessness-wise.

I meant Jacob...

I just saw this am so on board with the new American world building.
1SO is dead on with the bit about Dumbledore's sister (I thought of that while watching the film) and I like the idea of Rowling possibly using these films to flesh out other bits and loose ends from the HP series. Curious as to who they might get to play a young Dumbledore. This is before Grindlewald has the unbeatable wand from the deathly Hallows so I bet that will figure prominently in later films.
BTW, I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes with the niffler. My favorite fantastic beast.

Not at all disappointed as many seem to be.

He may not have the wand yet, but the symbol of the Deathly Hallows already featured heavily, providing those implications. But yeah, I think the world is strong enough to support a lot of stories and Rowling a masterful enough world-builder to make them strong. Notably, it seems she was slightly less involved in the play currently on the West End (which I wasn't a huge fan of in script form), but is more centrally involved with these screenplays (as the sole credited writer).

Cursed Child read more like fan fiction to me.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Eddie Redmayne plays a boring character the most boring way imaginable. Ending like a wet fart.
I would write a rebuttal, but I don't know how to tackle that opinion.

Well, Redmayne does play a poorly written character with the same mannerisms of all his previous roles, so he has a point. Don't know what he's talking about with the ending though.

Some generic Auror's kill an amorphous blob while our heroes and villain just stand by and watch. And then they reveal that Colin Farrell is actually Johnny Depp and the one good thing about the film is obliviated.

Colin Farrell still has a chance to come back much like Brendan Gleeson in Harry Potter. Could be locked in a cage somewhere but he would be a different character so i guess there's no point.

Doesn't Grimwald say he's killed him?
