Goofs

Nagini was introduced in a show as an animal from Indonesia, even though Indonesia became independent only in 1945. In 1927 it was generally known as East Indies.

In late 19th century it was popularized in Adolf Bastian's book, and by 1920's it was known well enough (at least outside of Netherlands) to explain its use in the context of this movie. See more »

The Crimes of Grindelwald
21 November 2018 | by brianfhairSee all my reviews

The special effects were great as was the scenery, however the movie was disjointed and did not flow. It seemed to jump from one special effect to the next and following the plot was tedious to the point of total boredom.
