Nerdy Show Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.
In this case the specific discussion at hand is a stand-alone film review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - the first film set in J. K. Rowling's Wizarding World not revolving around Harry Potter. You might recall back in 2013, our lukewarm feelings towards a film adaptation of the in-universe textbook, followed by a rising enthusiasm earlier this year when details of a more elaborate story came into view and the article series History of Magic in North America began its release, leading up to the film.

Join Doug and Nina as they share their feelings on the film, fresh from an early screening - opening with a spoiler-free review and then switching gears to unrestricted discussions about what transpires and modern film's ever present nemesis: the clunky third act.
