  • What were our takeaways from Crimes of Grindelwald.
  • Would this story have been better as books first, films second?
  • Big reasons why people liked/disliked the movie
  • How did we manage to appreciate the film the first and second time around? Were we able to catch more details after multiple viewings or were we still confused?

  • There is a clear division in the fandom and some fans are scared that will drive us apart.

  • The hosts agree, the screenplay provided a good amount of context for certain scenes.
