Happy Thanksgiving...and Dragons!

OK, so maybe not dragons (sad face, sniffle), but we went and saw THIS yesterday:

(Totally snagged this image from the movie poster at the theater. 
Yes, kids, I took this on my phone. No credit necessary :))

This movie is beautiful. It was so well done and J.K. Rowling proves again why she's such a master storyteller. And I realized some things about storytelling that I hadn't paid attention to before. Things that I understand now makes great storytelling possible. What are they? Well, I'm going to wait on that. In fact, I'm going to let YOU go see Fantastic Beasts for yourself and let you see if anything speaks to you. There are many things Rowling does that confirms her gift and they are ALL present in this film. Yes, kids, she wrote the screenplay. The cast is superb and HOLY COW!! The BEASTS! I kind of need them. All. Well, OK, maybe not the giant dung beetles but everything else is a go!

Sorry for the lack of depth in todays post. Last week was a doozy and this week is a short work week. Thanksgiving is a'coming and we're hosting a couple of family members this year. I'm SO happy to be able to open up our little home to others. I'm also really glad we don't have to do any traveling :D. For all you HOSTS and HOSTESSES out there, HAVE FUN! Enjoy the day and remember: perfection does NOT a happy thanksgiving make. For all you GUESTS and TRAVELERS: be safe, enjoy yourself, don't overstay your welcome, and take a good bottle of wine.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone! Have a wonderful week and I'll see you here next Monday.

Cheers,

  1. I went to this movie as well with my family. We enjoyed it but we all thought the different subplots felt a bit disjoint. After Creedence dies, there is nothing said or mentioned. That seemed odd. Plus there is no mention of what fate befell his younger (adopted) sister. Loved the special effects and the beasts. Thought the non-mag fellow stole the show in terms of acting.

  3. I'M SO HAPPY! :D I'm glad that you enjoyed it so much. I have been so pumped for this, but then I heard that it was going to be five movies, and ordinarily I wouldn't mind that but I suddenly felt tired just hearing that. But I knew I would be down for it if the first one was good. Can't wait to go see it.
