Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an interesting book vs. movie to review. It is actually an original and entertaining screenplay that spins off of a Hogwarts text book of the same name from the Harry Potter series that describes and accounts for all of the known magical beasts in the wizarding world. In this film, viewers are introduced to the quirky Newt Scamander and quite a few of the incredible beasts that Rowling has imagined. The acting is impeccable and this is the storytelling that can only come from an author like J.K. Rowling. Continue reading

Gretchen Meyers doesn't know exactly what went wrong, but life in the tenth grade is beginning to suck. As if having a semi-nudist, food-obsessed family wasn't awkward enough, she has lost her best friend to the fanatical school swim team, and her math grade is so close to negative digits that only emergency tutoring can save it. So far, so high school. Then James/Dean rolls into her life — also known as her zit-faced chemistry tutor James and his slightly less zit-faced cousin Dean. Kind-hearted rebels without a cause, they draw Gretchen out of classroom hell, and briefly the world seems full of possibility.
