Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016): A Magical Potter Prequel

When I was dragged to the theater last weekend, my expectations for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” were extremely low. While I enjoyed the proper “Potter” films, my obsession over the books had waned by the time the money-grubbing finale was split into two films in 2010 and 2011. Unexpectedly, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” obliterates the money-factory mold that came before it and serves as one of the best “Potter” films of all.
