Newt's movie review

It's a much darker movie (in a number of ways) than the first two but it was entirely appropriate. The scenery was excellent, the effects were amazing (especially the hippogriff), the acting very good, it stuck well to the book, and I liked it. Check it out.

Ripley's movie review

It had the usual cool effects and the usual fine acting but the story didn't do much for me and I didn't like it as much as the first two.
