J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World is one that is so special and creative, we are immediately transported there with a simple swish and flick. There’s no one way to surmise just how fantastic this world is, but I am here to explain to you why so many love it, why it persists, and what makes Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald so enchanting.

The Crimes of Grindelwald is a direct sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and a prequel to the beloved Harry Potter franchise. The worlds are vastly interconnected and we begin to see their ties more and more as the Beasts world progresses. In follow up to the last, after being recruited by Albus Dumbledore, we are to follow Newt Scamander, Tina, Jacob, and Company as they fight the battle against Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) – one of the most powerful wizards who seeks to dis-empower muggles (non-magic folk) by using Credence (Ezra Miller)… Once we can understand who he is, that is. Credence is one that has survived as an obscurial and contains much power, as we began to see in the first Fantastic Beasts.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

Ellie (Byrne) and Pete (Wahlberg) have reached a very comfortable spot in their lives. After years of struggling to turn their remodeling business into something profitable, they’re now at the point where they can sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labor. So when Ellie suggests that they look into adoption as a possible next step, neither of them are too daunted by the idea of bringing a small child into their lives. It’s only when they are smitten with 15-year-old Lizzy (Moner) and her two young siblings that they realize how simple things were before and how difficult their life is about to get.

Based on the real-life adoption experiences of writer/director Anders, Instant Family sets out to soften the edges of a difficult process for multiplex audiences across the country. There’s no shortage of charm on display throughout the film; as a couple, Pete and Ellie offer the right balance of compassion and ignorance, and co-screenwriters John Morris and Anders’ script never shies away from showing the most selfish parts of their transition from self-reliance to parenthood. There's also a slew of likable and recognizable performers (actors like Octavia Spencer, Margo Martindale, and Tig Notaro) in supporting roles, who move the story along considerably just by being amplified versions of themselves onscreen. As the story of two parents going through the adoption process, the movie has a few nice things to say about stepping outside your own comfort zone to make a difference in the lives of others.
