Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald does overindulge on the ‘franchise’ moments and is rather plot heavy at times but it generally casts a decent spell. Characters are well grounded and the tie-in to the ‘Potter-verse’ is well crafted and shows that the truly gifted J.K. Rowling still has what it takes.
Murder on the Orient Express is an underwhelming whodunit. It takes itself way too seriously and doesn’t sell itself as a classic Agatha Christie tale. For its fantastic all star cast, it falls surprisingly flat in some moments.
The first trailer of the gorgeous Murder on the Orient Express looks dressed to impress, and with this star studded cast, not to mention Kenneth Branagh in the director’s chair, it might even beat the original.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is a disappointing entry in the lucrative franchise, hindered by unnecessary cheese and a ridiculous narrative.
