FILM REVIEW…Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Before we even start, ‘The Magical World’ by JK Rowling was the beginning for many things for me. Firstly Philosophers Stone was the first book I was able to read truly by myself without in any help and it was also the first film I ever saw at the cinema. My mother bought me the book and I sat for hours reading it over and over and then one day she woke me up at 11 pm and put me in the car, still in my PJs, to go to the cinema at midnight. My first book that I owned and read and the first-midnight showing I have ever been to – the beginning of my life really!!

I don’t own many DVDs or BluRays so I usually choose a film or program from subscription services such as Netflix or NowTV or from the purchasing app available on my digital top box, BT TV. I live in a fibre optic area so I never need to worry about buffering so I just cosy down in a nest of blanket and pillows that I will have prepared around me and enjoy the film.
