What the actual flip?! Can someone please explain the big twist????
I’ve just got back from seeing this and have to write this before my head explodes...I just cannot understand the ludicrous ending! BTW I went to see the film because I saw the first one, I haven’t read the books and don’t intend to; I like the visual.
So.... Creedance was supposed to be Corvus Ravenclaw. But in the end he wasn’t. He was just some random baby that his sister swapped him with because she couldn’t put up with the crying little shit anymore. However, at the end it turns out he is a relation (Son? Brother? What?) of Dumbledore.
This news didn’t even shock me...in fact, it made me laugh...I was appalled at this drastic twist because...how the actual flip would that have even happened?!
Ok, so let me try and work this out. There’s some kind of history already about the Ravenclaw house and the death of the brother/son Corvus, and everyone knows about it. However, if I’ve got this right, how could the brother have died in the first place for this to be a thing? His sister swapped her brother for another baby....so there was still a baby....the baby still got to USA and was, for some reason adopted by Samantha Morton’s character. Now, forgive me purists, for I don’t know the ins and outs of it...maybe it does make sense.
And another thing....so this ship going to USA was full of magic babies was it?! And the Ravenclaw girl just happened to swap her magic baby brother with another magic baby of the right sex and age?! Oooooh please!!
Surely it’s even too crazy for Grindelwald to make up...the fact that Creedance is not Corvus, but a Dumbledore!?
Or is everyone dumb.....or am I dumb? Have I got this right?! Help!!
I liked the unidentified homoerotic undertones between Creedance and Colin Farrel’s character in the first one....but in this one, not a sausage between him and Grindelwald for me (no pun intended). Obviously Grindelwald had changed this aspect of himself also as well as his face...but wait...surely he was the perfect homosexual specimen in this film? I’m sure Johnny Depp could have played him gayer though. Were they going for that theme?! Dumbledore and Grindelwald were lovers, that’s why the pact was made and that’s why Grindelwald was so pissed off and wanted them all to live free?!
There was plenty of other things too that got my goat....but on a happier note, it was of course visually impressive, if a little repetitive....oh look, there’s Newt riding on a big dragon thing....
