“In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, though he’s unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.”
Hm, I don’t know exactly how to begin but lets start directly by stating that I’ve never been a huge Harry Potter fan, I’ve enjoyed the movies yes, but was never a hardcore fan.
The first Fantastic Beasts movie (Fantastic Beasts are prequels to the Harry Potter saga) was ok and enjoyable, liked the idea of exploring old characters in their youth but that was about it, this one however wasn’t that good at all and had almost nothing to explore, the plot was very confusing and I didn’t know exactly what it wanted to bring to the table.
The characters weren’t developed enough and the whole movie felt like a filler for an upcoming sequel to this one… it started fun and entertaining but stoped right there within the first 10-15 minutes.
There are plenty of special-effects and thats what the movie seems to be relying mostly on, because they are… good actually, but in terms of story and character development this movie has not much to really deliver on.
unfortunately, it wasn’t interesting enough… and I really y don’t think it’s because I’m not a hardcore Harry Potter fan, it’s just a confusing and pale movie overall, not so fantastic at all.

4K and Bluray Comparisons.
The biggest difference between 4K Ultra HD and traditional Blu-ray is that the former supports resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 (4K), while the latter caps out at 1920 x 1080 (1080p). 4K is four times better than Blu ray. HDR is also available in 4K UHD… HDR expands the range of both contrast and color significantly. Bright parts of the image can get much brighter, so the image seems to have more ”depth.” Colors get expanded to show more bright blues, greens, reds and everything in between.
