Perhaps the more appropriate title is ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Plans of Grindelwald’. I can guarantee that most of the duration of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be spent asking questions like me: Actually what happened here?
Even though I’ve watched all Harry Potter films and read almost all of his books.
This question can actually be a good testimony if the context is different. Yha, the magic in its essence is indeed beyond comprehension of reason. Wizarding World, as we have known since Harry Potter entered school almost two decades ago, is indeed a magical world full of magic. We are amazed at the things beyond our comprehension, these ordinary Muggle ordinary people. Unfortunately, Fantastic Beasts 2 seemed to offer very little. Instead, he is busy giving too many subplots and characters that — more unluckily — almost all are hard to understand and we can’t care about.
If you still remember, his first film titled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them tells the story of the adventures of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a magizoologist who loves magic creatures who will later write one of the guidebooks at Harry Potter’s school. In this second film that still puts on the main title “Fantastic Beasts”, Newt is still adventuring … like. It’s hard for me to say this confidently. To be honest, Newt doesn’t have a good place here. The story center is no longer Newt, but everyone except Newt. Every now and then fantastic creatures are tucked away, pretending to be like a story like having a relationship with the title.
Now about the subtitle of The Crimes of Grindelwald, I don’t think this is right. As far as I can see, there is no crime from Grindelwald who feels it deserves to be underlined as a title. Here he made more plans. Perhaps the more appropriate title is Fantastic Beasts: The Plans of Grindelwald.
