Harry Potter fans were clamoring for Fantastic Beasts, and we sure did want to know where to find them. The director returned, the new cast is great and everybody loves monsters, so what the heck happened? What does Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them suck so much?
Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are back with another episode of The B-Movies Podcast to dissect these beasts and tell you what went wrong. And a LOT went wrong. They also take you on a journey through the infinitely more interesting other films that came out this weekend, including Manchester By The Sea, Nocturnal Animals and The Edge of Seventeen, and tackle the biggest news stories of the week.
Plus, we keep getting your letters, so we’ll keep reading them on the air! Be sure to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments, opinions, suggestions, the films that inspire you, your picks for the best films of the decade (so far) and your questions about Bibbs and Witney.
Why does Saving Mr. Banks still piss us off two years later? We’ll be sure to tell you on The B-Movies Podcast #299: Not-So-Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!
