Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them Review

I recently took the girls to the Redcliffe Hoyts cinema to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them. The new movie written by JK Rolling, the lady behind Harry Potter. What a fun movie! I haven’t read any of her books, nor watched any of the Harry Potter movies, so I was going in with no expectations, thoughts or assumptions at all.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them Review

I’m not sure I completely understood it but was a ride. As you would expect, Eddie Redmayne as Newt was good. He is always going to be great in anything. But I really loved the relationship between the gorgeous Queenie (Alison Sudol) and Jacob (Dan Fogler). I hope this follows though in the next one.

Oh, and hello to the very handsome Colin Farrell as Percival. He’s always so lovely to see on the big screen.

Visually it was stunning, the costumes, sets, the creatures … all of it.

The whole family really enjoyed it but after the movies (and for a while beforehand) our conversations were all about the newly renovated cinemas.

Redcliffe Hoyts Newly Renovated Cinema

Seriously awesome.

Leather reclining lounges, loads of leg room, generous arm and table space. No more bums in faces when people need to sneak out to pee. You have an individual electric button to raise and lower your seat!! The girls have insisted that this is the only cinema they will ever go to.

Great work Redcliffe Hoyts, I’m looking forward to many more hours curled up on your sofa seats!
