REVIEW: “Fantastic Beasts” is a wild ride without weight

Reviews

How Eddie Redmayne can take himself seriously playing magical zoologist Newt Scamander is a mystery to me. I lost all composure at the sight of him flipping his waistcoat over his hip and crab-walking to attract a loose rumpant in Central Park in a vague approximation of itsĀ mating dance. And if that’s what you’re looking for, thenĀ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them might be the movie for you.
