A Film Diary

+ high-res version

Watched: 15 August

Given that I’ve never watched a single Harry Potter film, and have never read a JK Rowling book, it’s no wonder that I was a bit lost during this prequelly, originy, shared-universey thingy, starring Eddie Redmayne (a man whose name I will forever pronounce in the same style employed by his absurd villain in Jupiter Ascending). It’s a typical modern Hollywood family-oriented blockbuster: loads of monster/smashy-smashy effects and plenty of patronising audience reassurances via the appearances of familiar, famous faces, with everything hurtling along at a fair old lick. There’s some fan service for Potter-lovers, as you’d expect, but it’s not for me, Harry. (**)
