If they were trying to set a record for as many scenes as possible in a movie, i think they would win.

Each scene was about 30 seconds long, 100% dialogue and people's names that were impossible to keep track of unless you are a super nerd.

I am mostly kidding. The movie was okay. The visuals were nice and the acting was fine. There is a lot of theory/lore that you could talk about but I just don't find that super interesting since it's just a movie. I like movie's telling me their story.

I was telling a coworker that if i watched it again i would fall asleep.

Are you a big Harry Potter fan or just saw it to see it?
I've seen most of the Harry Potter movies, including the first Fantastic Beasts, but I've never been super into any of them. From what you said and other reviews I've seen, this is a movie more for the nerds.

I like Potter as much as the next guy. I've seen most of the movies and the Newt one from a few years ago. No desire to run out and see this one, especially after Crckrs review.

I LOVE harry potter. I don't care for FB very much. The HP universe has kind of run it's course for me.

Box Office Week - Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens at #1 to a pretty underwhelming $62.2M, the lowest domestic opening for any Wizarding World film. However, overseas it did much better opening to $191M.
