Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (dir. David Yates)

Published by USC Bedrosian Center on

2016 brought us back to the wizarding world of Harry Potter in the prequel to the beloved books and movies: Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. 6 fictional months and two real life years later, we return to in Yates’ Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Reviews have been decidedly mixed. What do our geeks think of the new addition to the Potterverse?

Voldemort-lite or complex look at the “Banality of Evil?”

If you haven’t seen the movie, beware, this conversation has spoilers.

Host Jonathan Schwartz is joined by Alex Ago and Aubrey Hicks.
