Feeling a little reluctant, I joined my church mates to catch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The reluctance came from the tiredness I would experience after the movie because later at night I have choir practice. Still, I went ahead anyway
It was, I think, the best movie in 2016. Perhaps on par with Civil war hehe. but man, this movie was so so good. Since the 7th installment of Harry potter ended eons ago, I've stored the harry potter jargon and its characters way back in my memory space. But this movie, they throw the jargon in their speech like *snap* *snap* so fast. And i found myself gasping and uttering, "ooooh so she's related to bellatrix lestrange", and "oooo that's (a) squib/auror/Grindelwald". love it. These references made a tiny electric jolt in my system. Ahhh i will always love Harry potter. The best trilogy i've read in my lifetime.
And the feels in this movie!! I can't even. I shed a tear or two :'( So so sad because I have a soft spot for the misfits because I was one of em too (surprise surprise) in my own way. Now looking back, why did I even bother fitting myself, a square peg in a freakin round hole? cant square pegs just stand out on our own and be ourselves? Why should people shun/mock us for being different? And whose standards are we measuring ourselves to? The round holes? But, who appointed them to be the "standards" anyway? Why should square pegs seek approval from round holes? Who're the round holes to call the shots? ... meh.
All in all, this movie is worth watching. You won't regret it, trust me. Great plot twist at the end. I was like, "Huh?? Wow! no way!" :D enjoy!
