Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

IN THIS sequel, the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald escapes from custody and starts gathering followers as he plans to raise pure-blood wizards to rule over non-magical beings. To stop Grindelwald’s plans, Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander to help him. Directed by David Yates, the movie stars Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Ezra Miller, Zoe Kravitz, and Katherine Waterston. Empire’s Ian Freer writes, “The second chapter in J.K. Rowling’s five-part story, it’s a film stuffed with characters, big moments and impressive spectacle but still feels bizarrely underpowered. There are twists and revelations, but very few that alter the outcome of the film you are actually watching.” Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 57% rating.

Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams

Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams




FROM performing in pubs to sold out concerts in stadiums, the members of Coldplay — Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, and Will Champion — share their story of success in their own words in this documentary, which was filmed during the A Head Full of Dreams Tour, the third best-selling concert tour of all time. Directed by Mat Whitecross. “It’s in the recording studio and on stage where these four rather ordinary blokes function as an extraordinary whole. And it’s also where Whitecross’s film really reaches out to the fans,” writes Jamie Healy of Radio Times.

Don’t Leave Home

A SCULPTOR who has just had an exhibit on Irish urban legends is approached by a priest for a special art commission. She accepts eagerly, not considering the possibility that the urban legends that are her subject might be true. Directed by Michael Tully, the movie stars Anna Margaret Hollyman, Lalor Roddy, and Helena Bereen. Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney writes, “While this twisty tale of an ‘evil miracle’ connected to a self-exiled former priest ultimately withholds too much to resolve all of its enigmas, the atmospheric mood and persuasive performances keep you watching.”
