Culture Crash 18-49: The disappointing Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Last month, JK Rowling’s Wizarding World saw its latest installment, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes on Grindelwald be met with a low score on Rotten Tomatoes and countless disappointed Harry Potter fans across the globe. Count me among them. Not since 2009’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince film totally bungled its source material has a Wizarding World installment felt so misguided. Crimes of Grindelwald isn’t quite as bad as Half-Blood Prince, but it is poorly paced and difficult to follow, even for those who have spent their entire childhoods learning the universe forward and backward.
