Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald Reviews: What CinemaBlend Thought Of The New Wizarding World Movie

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald marks the second installment of the second franchise in J.K. Rowling’s larger Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them largely succeeded in carrying on the magic of the Harry Potter franchise, but does the sequel keep things going? Eric Eisenberg wrote the official review for CinemaBlend where he gave the film three and out of five stars. Eric feels that, while there’s certainly fun to be had in the new film, viewers who aren’t steeped in J.K. Rowling‘s increasingly dense mythology may find themselves a little lost. According to Eric…

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald feels like a movie for the fans — and at this stage in the game it’s hard to really fault it for that. With the exception of select characters who don’t get the focus they need, it’s a big, often fun dive into lore and history of the Wizarding World that feels like just the beginning for a larger adventure. Outsiders looking in are going to have trouble with it, and it’s really a “study up, or get out of the way” situation at this point.

To a large extent, it’s understandable that the new film might “play to its base” so to speak. The entire new franchise is based on ideas that were only briefly dealt with in the main Harry Potter franchise of books and movies. If you cared about who Grindelwald even was before the first Fantastic Beasts movie, then this entire series is pretty much for you.

If, however, you don’t quite remember all the various important wizarding family names, and how they connect to each other, then even simple conversations between characters could be a little perplexing this time around.

One of those people who might feel a little behind was our own Managing Director Sean O’Connell. He thought the movie was visually stunning but admitted that he’s not even sure exactly what happened in the movie. He felt like the larger story didn’t really go anywhere over the course of the film, largely due to significant script problems.

I’m not 100% sure what happens in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, but it all looked good while doing it. For real, the movie spares no expense in terms of special effects and creature design. The Wizarding World is alive! It’s just not “well,” because there are major story beats that happen in this movie that had no impact because the script fumbled them. I learned nothing about Grindelwald, and less about Newt or Credence, who’s clearly being set up to be an important piece… in what story, I have no idea. This franchise should be improving, but I’m not sure Crimes of Grindelwald took a step forward.

But if Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is really a movie for “the fans” then how does it work for somebody who is one? If you are one of those hardcore Wizarding World fans, like our own Video Team Lead Hannah Saulic, then you can probably remain fairly confident that you’ll still enjoy Crimes of Grindelwald, she certainly did, though, even for her, it was maybe a more difficult endeavor than she had anticipated. According to Hannah…

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is a mess, but if you’re a Wizarding World fan like me it’s still very fun…just nowhere near as much fun as you might be hoping. There’s MAJOR pacing and character problems throughout, but I’m a sucker for a good cliffhanger and the ending definitely delivers on that front.

You won’t get spoilers from us here, (you will here) but that ending is certainly going to get people talking. The movie even started its own Protect the Secrets hashtag once the first preview audiences got to see the film, revealing that there were secrets to be had, and those same fans of Harry Potter, whether they love the movie or not, will likely be talking about the end of this movie until the next one comes out.

CinemaBlend video producer Gabrial Kovacs ultimately felt that The Crimes of Grindelwald weren’t actually enough to warrant a movie of their own, as the franchise increasingly feels like its stretching too little material into too much movie.

J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World continues to be one of cinema’s most intriguing, and her creativity within it remains unparalleled. Unfortunately, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald feels like part of a movie stretched into one, and by the end, very little has developed beyond the events of the first film. Perhaps the third time will be the charm.

It has to be said that after two movies, it feels like the story this franchise is telling has only moved forward in small steps. It certainly makes one wonder what’s in store for us considering there are supposed to be three more of these films on the way.

While I’d love to be the one to break up this parade of mediocrity with an opinion that’s stronger in one direction or the other, I just can’t. My own feelings exiting the second Fantastic Beasts movie were pretty much the same as the way I felt leaving the first one. I enjoyed most of it. It feels like there’s some real potential here, and two movies in, I’m still waiting for it to be realized.

I walked out of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them entertained enough and interested to see what would happen when this new story really got going. I walked out of Fantastic Beasts 2 entertained enough… and still waiting for the story to actually get going.

If you love the world that J.K. Rowling has created then it seems you’ll likely find enough to enjoy about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. One simply wonders if you’ll find much else or if anybody that isn’t at least slightly obsessive about the material will find it entertaining at all. The world is just as magical as ever. The story, however, could use a little magic of its own.

Zayn Malik Says Taylor Swift Really Does Travel Inside A Suitcase

Those lucky enough to become a celebrity or popular artist tend to bounce around a lot. They don’t necessarily live in one location for long, and travel is frequent.Successful andfamous musicians are also constantly on tour, and asked to be in one place or another. That’s exactly the life Taylor Swift lives. She’s not one to stay in one place for long, and she’ll often be bouncing between locations on the dime. But there’s an added rumor about Swift using her suitcast in an unorthodox way. According to Zayn Malik, T. Swift avoids the paparazzi by traveling inside a suitcase.

Zayn Malik made the claim about Taylor Swift’s unconventional (and presumably uncomfortable) travel method during his recent profile piece with Vogue. There are many ways one could escape the gaze of the paparazzi, but you gotta give points to Taylor Swift for being creative in her methods. It is not as if the photographers and autograph seekers are going to think she’s hiding in a bunch of luggage (well, until now).

Qhile it’s not the most convenient or comfy way to travel, we suppose it does the job well enough. And it seems to work for Taylor Swift — until Zayn Malik let the cat of the bag. Yes, there is a pun intended here.

Admittedly, as Stereogum reports, there were rumors spreading in the summer of 2017 that Taylor Swift was possibly traveling around via suitcase. It is a piece of gossip that began when Swift’s bodyguards were photographed carrying a large suitcase to her apartment. The Internet being what it is, speculation began. But there were a few people believed that info was too ridiculous to be true. Alas, this time, this rumor might be the real deal.

If Taylor Swift is being carried from place-to-place via suitcase, that raises a whole lot of questions. For instance, are the suitcases custom made? Are there suitcases designers who have made suitcases that fit Taylor Swift’s … modifications? Do people inside her immediate circle know she will be coming via suitcase, or do they get the fright of their lives when Taylor Swift randomly pops out of a suitcase?

Furthermore, does she travel in a suitcase by plane? We doubt it, but going through airport customs via suitcase must be one hellish ordeal. It certainly makes the concept of flying coach seem more enjoyable.

We don’t know the answer to these questions, and it’s unlikely that we will ever hear from Taylor Swift directly on this matter. But thanks to Zayn Malik, the Internet has some confirmation about this particular nagging rumor. That’s all you can hope for. Not much else you can say, other than case closed.

What Ohio’s New Anti-Abortion Bill Could Mean for You

On November 16, Ohio state lawmakers voted to pass a bill banning abortions as early as six weeks, with no exceptions for rape or incest. But Ohio’s anti-abortion bill doesn’t just have implications for women in the state—it’s a threat to women’s reproductive rights around the country. The legislation effectively bans abortion after the point at which a fetal heartbeat can be detected. That’s as early as six weeks—a point many women don’t even know they’re pregnant yet.

It’s among the stricter abortion bans to pass in the U.S., considering the fact that it would make abortions illegal even in the case of rape or incest. “This is a real threat to abortion access,” says Gabriel Mann, communications manager for the Ohio chapter of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “It would be a traumatic thing to force women to carry unintended pregnancies to term.” (The bill does allow for exceptions in cases where the woman’s health is threatened to avoid “serious risk of substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function.”)

If the bill is signed into law by Ohio’s governor, there are two major implications for women’s reproductive rights:

First up, it will make providing an abortion in Ohio a felony carrying a potential one-year jail sentence for doctors. But opponents are particularly concerned with what the bill means for women. “This bill to ban nearly all abortions in Ohio is part of a larger movement to ban abortion state by state,” says Dr. Ghazaleh Moayedi, a Texas-based ob-gyn and fellow with Physicians for Reproductive Health. Earlier this month, Alabama and West Virginia voted to pass similar laws, restricting state-wide access to abortion and criminalizing the procedure for physicians.

“When women do not have access to safe, legal abortion nearby, many women will do whatever they can to try to access care,” says Dr. Daniel Grossman, an abortion provider and director of Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health. “Some women may travel out of state to access legal services. They may be delayed in the process and end up obtaining the abortion later in pregnancy, which may increase the risks and cost of the procedure.” With that in mind, it’s no surprise abortion bans like the one passed in Ohio are especially harsh on women of color, low-income families, and younger women.

Bans like the one passed in Ohio challenge abortion rights nationwide. Ohio’s bill previously passed in 2016 but was vetoed by the state’s governor John Kasich who argued it was “clearly contrary to the Supreme Court of the United States’ current rulings on abortion.”

So, what’s changed? Thanks to Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who expressed anti-abortion views during his confirmation hearings, the U.S. Supreme Court now has a conservative majority—and it’s giving supporters of Ohio’s abortion ban reason to get excited. Rep. Ron Hood, a republican state representative, told Cincinnati.com he’s he’s optimistic that the Supreme Court would back Ohio’s ban if challenged. “I am very confident that we would have a favorable ruling,” Hood said.

These statewide bills restricting women’s reproductive rights aren’t just isolated events, Dr. Moayedi says—that’s important to note. “This something that we see nationally, where these kinds of bills are introduced simultaneously in multiple states,” he explains. “They are very much part of a movement to restrict access through all sorts of avenues and realms.”

In other words, even if you don’t live in Ohio, it’s worth paying attention to—experts on the Supreme Court have suggested laws like this one that directly contradict Roe v. Wade won’t be uncommon.

How Much Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald Made On Opening Night

Crimes of Grindelwald picks up months after the shocking events of 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which revealed Johnny Depp to be the main villain of the franchise, as dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. While the 2016 release attempted to get fans invested into a world without any of the familiar and beloved characters of the Harry Potter films, this sequel connects them by introducing Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore. The imaginative film also includes the characters introduced in its predecessor, including Newt (Eddie Redmayne), Tina (Katherine Waterston), Jacob (Dan Fogler), Queenie (Alison Sudol) and Credence (Ezra Miller). The film also introduces plenty of new characters, including Newt’s brother Theseus (Callum Turner), Leta Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz) and Nagini (Claudia Kim).

Kim Kardashian Called Out Tristan Thompson for Not Feeling Bad About Cheating

We know from a Keeping Up With the Kardashians clip released earlier this week that Kim Kardashian was not pleased with Tristan Thompson after news of him cheating on Khloé broke in April. (If you forget, Khloé was just days away from giving birth when this happened.) Kim was literally ready to fight Tristan when they first came face to face in Khloé’s delivery room after the scandal, but she held her tongue and kept the peace.

She didn’t hold back, though, during a conversation the family had off-camera with Tristan shortly after Khloé had her baby. In a new KUWTK clip, Kim recounts exactly what she said to Tristan during that heated discussion.

“I told him, ‘I think you’re more remorseful because it’s affecting your job,'” Kim said, referring to how Tristan was booed at Cleveland Cavaliers games after fans learned of his cheating. “I think he’s more embarrassed that he looks stupid. I think it’s more of that than anything.”

Watch Kim say all this for yourself, below:

Kim said that off-camera convo was “OK at the beginning.” “And then it got heated. It kinda took a left turn…Overall I think it was definitely necessary for us to just let out how we all felt.”

She continued, “He got mad because [Kris] was like, ‘You can make your decision. If you want to live this life of dating these Instagram [girls] and doing your thing, live that life.’ Mom’s like, ‘If this doesn’t work out with you guys, we’re always going to rise up.'”

Tune into this Sunday’s episode of KUWTK at 9 P.M. ET on E! to see how this all plays out.

Melania Trump’s One-Day Toronto Trip Cost $174,000 In Hotel Bills

Melania Trump‘s travel costs are once again making headlines. Her October trip to Africa included a $95,050 bill from a Cairo hotel where she didn’t even spend the night. And now another short trip is coming under scrutiny.

While most of us may remember the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto as the first time Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially appeared in public together as a couple, it was also the first time Trump and the British royal met. The First Lady was on hand to lead the U.S. delegation at the annual event for wounded veterans and also took a meeting with Harry.

Government records obtained by Quartz show that the First Lady’s hotel bill totaled approximately $174,000 of taxpayer money. According to Quartz, the total does not include costs for her advance team ($18,000) or any transportation costs ($21,000).

The First Lady’s itinerary for the Canadian trip shows her arriving in Toronto close to noon and back in Washington, D.C. around midnight, meaning she did not spend the night at the hotel in question.

“What I can tell you is that when the President or First Lady travels, there are people who travel ahead on the advance team to ensure safety measures, medical care, communications, motorcade needs and logistics are all in place,” said Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham when asked about specific expenses by Quartz. “Mrs. Trump travels with a much smaller contingent of staff than that of her predecessors, but the entities I mentioned above are legally required for all official travel.”

Maybe there’s a more complicated explanation for the hefty bill, but we’re quite sure that every trip FLOTUS takes going forward will be analyzed closely. And it’s certainly not going to help quell criticisms that have run rampant since the “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” jacket incident.

Jared Leto Has Shaved His Beard Ahead Of Shooting Morbius

Following the success of Venom, it appears that Morbius will be the next film out of the gates in Sony’s burgeoning Spider-Verse. Set to star in the film as Dr. Michael Morbius is Oscar winner Jared Leto. To get ready for the role as Marvel’s living vampire, Jared Leto had to shave his beard and he made quite the hilarious ceremony of doing so. Take a look:

If Jared Leto had to lose his beard, at least he had a good time doing so. This goofy Twitter video begins somewhat ominously, with the music seeming to tease the profound event that is about to happen before Jared Leto says “Fuck It” and begins to shave. Then, as one does when shaving off a lot of facial hair, he plays around with the various stages of facial hair, while seeing how ridiculous he can possibly look and act.

I’ve got to say, I would have thought Jared Leto as the kind of guy who would use a straight razor. But he’s not Morbius yet so he chose to forego that potential bloodletting. This is a very cinematic eulogy to one’s beard, and with that clean-looking shave, Jared Leto should probably just sell this to Gillette as a commercial. That is, if the shaving giant didn’t sponsor his new look already.

In the comics, Morbius traditionally is clean-shaven with the exception of a thin, and ill-advised goatee. We didn’t see Jared Leto’s final look, but he did have shaving cream all over his face so that means his Morbius might be completely clean-shaven.

It originally appeared that Silver and Black was the furthest along of the reported Spider-Verse movies, but that is being reworked. Now it seems Jared Leto’s Morbius will be next up, and should arrive in theaters to continue the infant franchise. There is no official release date yet, but Jared Leto is clearly already prepping for the role– and you’ve got to think that Sony wants to keep going and soon to build off of the success of Venom.

Not long ago the idea of a Morbius movie seemed rather ridiculous. After all, this was a Spider-Man character with very little public awareness in a film that wouldn’t feature the web crawler himself. But in the wake of Venom crushing at the box office, Morbius seems far more viable. In the same vein as Venom, Michael Morbius is an anti-hero who is not all good or bad but is more than willing to spill the blood of his enemies.

Safe House and Life director Daniel Espinosa is set to direct Morbius, based on a script by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. The film is expected to tell the story of Michael Morbius, a scientist with a rare blood disease who accidentally transforms himself into a living vampire. He then uses his newfound powers and need for sustenance to prey on the wicked.

A Walt Disney World Roller Coaster May Be About To Undergo A Major Change

The one constant at Walt Disney World is change, and it looks like another part of the theme park is about to undergo such a change. A new report claims that the Rock N’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is set for a major retheming, so it may not feature Aerosmith much longer.

The detail is little more than a footnote in a story about all the money that Disney is set to spend on its global theme park business over the next few years. Walt Disney World just saw the recent opening of Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland next year, and a new Marvel-themed area is set for Disney California Adventure the year after that. Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong are also set for new lands and attractions featuring everything from Frozen to Ant-Man and the Wasp.

These are all changes that were known, but among all of them is listed one item in the New York Times story that hadn’t been previously reported. A map of Disney’s Hollywood Studios is included which, along with items like the upcoming Mickey Mouse ride and Galaxy’s Edge reads “Re-themed roller coaster (overhauled).” The spot on the map where this note is made is over the current location of the Rock N’ Roller Coaster.

There are two Rock N’ Roller Coasters in the world, though the one at Disneyland Paris we already knew was on the way to being replaced by an Iron Man/Avengers roller coaster. It’s possible there’s been some confusion and the NYT is claiming the Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ version is being replaced when it is not, confusing it with Paris.

However, if one version of the ride is being taken out, it could mean that Disney Parks has eyes on replacing both. The roller coaster is nearly 20-years-old at this point, and the last time it made any sort of news it wasn’t for a good reason. Disney had to deal with what was viewed by some as an obscene gesture from Steven Tyler in one of the video clips played as part of the attraction. Even though the moment had been part of the ride for over a decade, it became “a thing” a couple years back.

The current attraction sees guest move through a queue designed to look like a recording studio. Guests are supposed to be special guests of Aerosmith at a concert, but you’re running late, so your limo needs to floor it. Your limo, in this case, is the roller coaster vehicle, themed to look like a really stretched limo. The coaster uses a magnetic launch, which means there’s no need to go up a hill to get moving quickly, the ride hits full speed immediately. It also immediately goes into a loop. It’s the only coaster at all of Walt Disney World that has an inversion. It has three in total. Of course, Aerosmith music plays loudly over in-car speakers throughout the ride.

The fact that the note states the ride is set to be “overhauled” means the change, if it is, in fact, happening, means more than a simple retheming. If whatever deal Disney has with Aerosmith was coming to an end, the park could record new material with a new band, and simply replace who was “starring” in the attraction. But overhaul makes it sound like the whole concept is being reset.

It’s not all that shocking an idea. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been undergoing some serious changes in recent years. It’s the one park at Walt Disney World that has been underperforming in the eyes of the company. The inclusions of Toy Story Land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and the new Mickey Mouse ride are part of those changes. It’s unlikely any part of the current park is really safe. And with the two new lands being open a year from now, if any other part of the park was going to close down, that would be the best time to do it.

It will be interesting to see what the plan is if indeed the attraction is being replaced. It’s unlikely that Disney’s Hollywood Studios will see the same new coaster that Disneyland Paris is getting. previous deals that Marvel made with Universal Studios prior to being purchased by Disney limit what Marvel characters can appear at Walt Disney World, so unless Disney is in negotiations to end that deal, its language basically allows Universal to keep using Marvel in its parks for as long as it wants.

It’s possible we could see some other sort of Marvel coaster though. The Guardians of the Galaxy coaster currently under construction at Epcot is open to Disney because Universal never used those characters in its park. If there are other Marvel characters that are available for Disney to use, they might try to theme a new attraction around them.

With the coaster being on the opposite end of the park from where Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and the fact that the new area will include it’s own thrill rides, we can guess it won’t be a Star Wars themed ride.

Recent rumors have implied Indiana Jones could be in line for his own area of the park, but those rumors are focused on the part of the park currently home to the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular, which is in more or less the middle of the park.

This would seem to limit the options to more traditional Disney animated properties or a non-Toy Story Pixar brand. Maybe Hollywood Studios will see its own, indoor, version of the Incredicoaster.

Disney is having a major event in Florida right now for its D23 fan club members, Destination D. We’re expecting to get some news about the theme parks over the course of the weekend. It’s been rumored that the same Mickey Mouse attraction going into Hollywood Studios will also be coming to Disneyland and that the official announcement will come this weekend. Perhaps we’ll get some confirmation of this change, one way or the other, very soon. If the change is happening, we’ll likely find out what will be replacing it as well.

Manolo Blahnik Is Re-Releasing Carrie Bradshaw’s Iconic Blue Wedding Shoes

There was a lot to take in with Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding look in the Sex and the City movie: Her bespoke Vivienne Westwood gown, her vampy makeup, and whatever that blue “bird” thing was that she wore in her hair… But of all of the pieces of her statement-making bridal look, the one piece that has stood the test of time is actually one she wore at the end of the film, paired with her simple white suit at her and Mr. Big’s courthouse wedding: Her blue Manolo Blahnik stilettos.

In honor of the movie’s 10th anniversary—which also marks the 10th anniversary of the shoe’s debut—Manolo Blahnik is re-releasing their “Hangsi” high heel as part of a special edition collection.

The “Decade of Love” limited launch includes seven styles, all inspired by Carrie’s iconic wedding shoe. There’s a blue high heel and flat embroidered with the phrase, “A Decade of Love” in script; A cream high heel and flat emblazoned with a map of New York City; Blue, pink and white checkered high heels; And black and white heels and flats with the word “love” calligraphed multiple times across the silk. Prices range from $985 to $1065.

“The Hangisi has since transformed from fashion fantasy to the quintessential, instantly recognisable silhouette it is today,” the brand writes on its website. “The capsule collection, A Decade of Love is inspired by New York City in dedication to the ‘Manolo’ woman and her long-standing love for this special shoe.”

Since Carrie Bradshaw selected the Hangsi as her “something blue” a decade a go, a number of brides have followed suit for their own big days. Olivia Palermo famously paired the shoe with a white sweater and princess skirt for her 2015 wedding, proving that the shoe works just as well for a bridal look now as it did back when Carrie was stood up at the altar (a move we still haven’t forgiven Mr. Big for, by the way).

The movie gained the shoe a notorious place in fashion and pop culture history, which designer Manolo Blahnik says happened by happy accident. “It’s torture—it’s a horror story. It just goes on and on,” he joked to Footwear News of the shoe’s mass popularity. “It’s one of those things that I cannot explain, but I do thank God for it. I never do things thinking they are going to be iconic. It was just a coincidence.”

The collection is available for sale now in stores and at Manolo Blahnik‘s website.

Armie Hammer Issues Apology After Comments After Stan Lee’s Death

We all make mistakes; it’s human nature. Sometimes, we’re bound to slip up, speak out of turn, or say or do something that we ultimately regretted. Armie Hammer had one of those situations this week, and it got plenty of media attention.

Upon the death of Marvel mastermind Stan Lee, thousands of fans and work colleagues of the late comic book creator posted pictures of themselves beside Lee, and Armie Hammer felt people were directing attention onto themselves instead of the person they meant to mourn. Hammer posted on Twitter about his anger and he got a lot of angry responses in return. Now, Hammer admits he did the wrong thing, and he apologized for what he said on social media. He even thanked Jeffrey Dean Morgan for calling him “an asshat.”

The Twitter apology finds Armie Hammer owning up to his mistakes, confessing that he was being a real “asshat,” and hoping folks forgive his misstep. It was a mindful and considerate apology, and it should hopefully make amends with the people who were offended by Hammer’s original dismissive tweet.

It takes a lot for one person to admit that they are wrong, and it also takes a big man to apologize in such a public forum. It seems like Armie Hammer has learned the error of his ways, and he should hopefully learn to think before you tweet. It’s a lesson that many celebs have learned the hard way.

Here is the since-deleted tweet that Armie Hammer sent out to the world, which the actor is now apologizing for.

Stan Lee passed away at the age of 95 on Monday, leaving many fans of the comic book mastermind to mourn his death but also celebrate his life and his deep love and appreciation for his fans. Lee has taken thousands upon millions of photos with fans over the years at conventions and other public events. Therefore, tons of people have pictures of themselves alongside the famous face of Marvel.

Armie Hammer felt these selfies were people trying to make the death of an icon about themselves, but he learned the hard way that it’s the way people choose to remember the legacy Lee left behind. This included being name called in another deleted tweet by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
