Gayle On Film: 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald'

While this story exists in the Harry Potter universe, it would be a mistake to expect the same kind of story. The film opens with an intense and daring prison escape and settles into becoming what most second films in a trilogy are — lots of exposition becoming a link to the big denouement in the final film. Gone is the whimsy of our favorite magical creature lover, or as we mere muggles would say animal lover, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). The creature hunter is asked to skip his day job and hunt for someone — a little difficult as Newt has been forbidden to leave England for nearly destroying New York (see the first Newt film "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" for a full explanation of that). More importantly, Newt is asked to choose sides in a political battle. As this is decades before Voldemort is on the scene, the villain Grindelwald (a non-pirate version of Johnny Depp) is the one causing lots of mischiefs. Grindelwald is sneakier and more polished, but he's just as evil as "He Who Must Not Be Named." Now if all this is lost on you, you may be lost seeing this tale. Heavy are the doses of magical family lines and characters that will the uninitiated flummoxed. However, for diehards, it's just another film to bide your time until the next one rolls out.    View Now
Gayle on Film: 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them,' 'The Edge Of Seventeen' & 'Nocturnal Animals'

Gayle on Film: 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them,' 'The Edge Of Seventeen' & 'Nocturnal Animals'

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - ★★★★ J.K. Rowling’s book of the same name is a short encyclopedia of creatures in the magical Harry Potter world, written by the movie's protagonist Newt Scamander. However, in her screenplay the creatures are secondary to the story of wizard Newt played by Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne. This wizarding story takes place many years before Harry Potter in pre-depression New York City. Newt’s not only got to get a hold of some escaped creatures, he’s got religious zealots and a very powerful force that is tearing up the infrastructure of the bustling city. Though uneven in parts, the film gets its wings around the second half and becomes well worth the price of a ticket. The Edge of Seventeen - ★★★★ Expect this film starring Hailee Steinfeld, Woody Harrelson, and Haley Lu Richardson to become both 2016 and 2017's seminal teenage angst film. Steinfeld stars as Nadine, an outsider who can’t seem to connect with her widowed mother, her popular and handsome brother and most people at her school. She becomes exasperated when her best friend starts dating (gasp) her brother. Some of the best scenes in this film are when she seeks out her teacher (Harrelson) for advice and hangs out with her awkwardly charming suitor. This is a well-written and not overly sweet dramedy, well served by its high-quality levels of acting. Nocturnal Animals - ★★★½ At its core, “Nocturnal Animals” is a romance gone wrong. A deeply unhappy Amy Adams laments her well-cushioned life in the arts. As financial realities and a troubled marriage plague her, her mind wanders to her first husband played by Jake Gyllenhaal, a struggling writer whom she betrayed. The book that he ultimately writes and sends to her - which is dramatized throughout the film - is a violent, tense thriller that documents how her leaving made him feel. The artsy parts of the film that has Adams lamenting her life can’t rise up to the drama revealed in the book. But it’s definitely watchable. View Now
