THE FLAWS OF GRINDELWALD


This movie is regretfully flawed. There are numerous sub-plots making it difficult to figure out what is going on. On the one to ten scale, I rate it seven.

UPDATE: I noticed a continuity error. In the movie, Queenie tells her muggle boyfriend "People like me can't marry people like you." In the Harry Potter book and film series, though, there is no such prohibition (remember Seamus Finnigan, the self-described half-in-half?) or suggestion there is one.

From what I remember of the first film, I believe the prohibition on inter marriage was only in America, unless I'm remembering that wrong.

reply

If what you say it true then Queenie, who was now in Europe, should not have let it concern her.

reply

Yes, it is true. The prohibition was an American thing only - certainly an allusion to the ban on interracial marriages that existed at the time in the USA.

I kept expecting that someone would suggest exactly that on the second movie - "Why don't you just move to England then?" - but I guess that would screw up the story.

The all time line is completely wrong, nothing really make sense. Jude law is miscast as a Dumbledore, the clothing are wrong he totally look out of chara with that 3 piece suit, on the half blood prince the jK tells about a young Dumbledore with auburn hair running around in robes. He was never a teacher of Defence against the dark arts, but a transfiguration teacher. Did they forget the previous books?!
I hope the next movie concentrate on how to e plain the massive amount of plot holes.

reply

Maybe he taught both (the dark arts and transfiguration).
