S2E1: A no-spoilers episode to kick off season 2. I give you a review of the latest Fantastic Beasts film that contains absolutely no major plot giveaways – beyond what your local cinema might have in their description blurb.

I talk about what’s good and not so good about The Crimes of Grindelwald so you can decide for yourself. I talk about where I disagree with the criticisms levelled at this movie – and where I think the naysayers are right.

In particular:

*The issue of exposition in a prequel and where the film fell down

*Where I thought there was real emotional depth

*How Leta Lestrange was portrayed

*Johnny Depp as Grindelwald – total dud or just right

*The problem of Dumbledore being played anew by a third actor

*What we all need to remember about exposition in the Harry Potter films

*My favourite special effects

Make sure you subscribe so you don't miss the full spoiler-filled review coming later this week.
