“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” has fantastic special effects, fantastic casting and fantastic acting.
As for the storyline: not so fantastic.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is a big disappointment and isn’t much better than the reboot, or “Harry Potter” prequel, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” (2016).
To say that “Marvel Universe Live! The Age Of Heroes” is not your son’s or daughter’s Marvel Comics is an understatement.
“Marvel Universe Live!,” seen opening night, Nov. 29, at PPL Center, Allentown, where performances are at 7 p.m. Nov. 30; 11 a..m., 3 and 7 p.m. Dec. 1, and noon and 4 p.m. Dec. 2, is nothing short of spectacular entertainment for all ages, and the ages.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” is not only one of the best rock music biopics, it provides a reassessment of the music of the British rock band Queen and the life of Freddie Mercury, lead singer and one of the founders of Queen.
The movie has a stunning lead star turn by Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. Malek isn’t the only reason to see “Bohemian Rhapsody,” but he’s the main reason. Look for an Oscar lead actor nomination for Malek.
There was sumptuous food, a silent auction, action-painting, a friendly kidnapping, tango dancing, and a major donation in the name of Larry Miley, the 2018 honoree at The Baum School of Art “Fall Gala.”
