Fall Movie Roundup | Fantastic Beasts, Doctor Strange and Arrival

Listen to the Podcast

It’s another edition of Post Movie Recaps, as Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) step away from the Thanksgiving festivities to talk about the last three movies they saw in theaters: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first film set in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World since the end of the Harry Potter series; Doctor Strange, the fourteenth Marvel Studios movie and the superhero franchise’s first foray into the realm of magic; and Arrival, a meditation on communication barriers between cultures disguised as an alien invasion movie.

If you have only seen one or two of these movies, or only want to listen to conversation about specific films, use the time codes below to guide you accordingly:

• Fantastic Beasts conversation begins at 4 minutes and 25 seconds 
• Doctor Strange conversation begins at 59 minutes
• Arrival conversation begins at 1 hour and 39 minutes

Please note that if you’re listening to this podcast, we are assuming you have seen the movies already. We keep the conversations about the movies strictly within those movies’ space as much as possible (ie: keeping the Fantastic Beasts conversation within the Fantastic Beasts conversation, and not in the Doctor Strange section), but still proceed with caution: TONS OF SPOILERS AHEAD.
