I was looking forward to this so much until it came out and all the reviews were horrible and I had second thoughts.

But my mom was like, You almost never agree with the critics anyway, so she made me go, lol.

I loved it. I really did. The new Horseman was awkward and I wanted a little more backstory for...almost all of them and I wanted more from Daniel Radcliffe's character and I wanted more real magic as hinted by the end of the last film but...I did enjoy it.

To me, a sequel does its job well when it causes you to rethink what you thought you knew of the previous film or films. This sequel did that. There's more to Dylan's past than we thought...storytime that probably should have been given over to a less fleshed out character but I really, really like Mark Ruffalo and he never gets to have cute characters with minimal angst anymore...and Thaddeus wasn't who we thought he was at all!

I had hoped for fanfiction shipping Thaddeus and Lionel but...I never found any...

Also, Jay Chou, woot!

This is actually one of my fave movies from last year. Even though it's a sequel, it's only a #2 in a sea of #5's & more and it still felt refreshing.

Most times I hear critics trashing a movie, I usually assume it's probably pretty good. lol.......
