Just curious if I'm likely to enjoy if a HP fan.

LauraPalmersBodybag Wed 08-Mar-17 21:08:03

Nope. It's awful

FreeNiki Wed 08-Mar-17 21:08:43

I liked it. But then I am not a HP fan.

SweetChickadee Wed 08-Mar-17 21:09:03

It was ok. It's no Harry Potter...

DH fell asleep blush

I liked it too but I hate Harry Potter with a passion so I was pleasantly surprised by this.

VanillaSugar Wed 08-Mar-17 21:12:28

I liked it very much and I preferred it to HP.

FreeNiki Wed 08-Mar-17 21:18:04

The acting is far better than the abysmal Daniel, Emma and Rupert et al too.

TrinityForce Wed 08-Mar-17 21:19:41

yes definitely worth watching!

Massive HP fan here.

Lovely movie.

No, it was awful and just made me feel cross.

FreeNiki Wed 08-Mar-17 21:21:51

Oh and it's interesting to learn about MACUSA as opposed to The Ministry of Magic etc.

Massive Potter head here. I enjoyed the film. It's not on par with the Potter films, but it's definitely worth a watch.

I'm an avid rabid HP fan and I loved it. Went to see it with my equally HP loving sisters and one loved it and the other thought it was meh. Go figure.

I liked it - 7/10.
Family LOVED it. my parents liked it better than Harry Potter and we are all big fans in our family x

ItsReginaPhalange Wed 08-Mar-17 21:29:48

I liked it and have never seen HP.

MrsDmitriTippensKrushnic Wed 08-Mar-17 21:36:22

I'm a massive fan of the HP books, and I like the earlier films and love the last few. I really liked Fantastic Beasts, enough to have the blu-ray on preorder and despite getting narked by Eddie Redmayne's bloody mumbling. Speak up and enunciate for the love of all things holy. I'm looking forward to subtitles.

I liked it but have never seen HP and have only read the first one.

I took my youngest to see it, DS aged 9. He absolutely loved it, has become a tad obsessed with newt and was desperate for a suitcase. I managed to get him one. I thought it was great. I loved the whole look and feel of the film. It's quite bonkers.

I like Hp but fell asleep through this, wouldn't recommend

FrancisCrawford Wed 08-Mar-17 22:27:00

We loved it!

TizzyDongue Wed 08-Mar-17 22:27:47

Harry Potter fan - I loved it. DS is the same.

bruffin Wed 08-Mar-17 22:28:33

Went to premiere with dd ds dn all avid HP fans who are 19, 21,25 and they all loved it.

I really enjoyed it. Especially David Archer appearing for about 30 seconds early on (mahoosive Archers fan).

We all enjoyed it and will be getting the dvd.

Agree about redmayne and his funny mouth thing though. Annoying.
