Can Art be Separated from the Artist?

But while this is the conclusion I’ve come to with J.K. Rowling, it doesn’t mean it’s a hard and fast rule. Separating art from the artist is highly a case by case basis where you need to evaluate the case and even yourself in the process. It’s about deciding what you believe in, deem acceptable, and want to support in some way. There’s no right answer. And unfortunately, I’ll likely continue to get chances to put my method to the test.

Review: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

I really can’t decide what I think of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The first Fantastic Beasts was a contrived story held up by good and likeable actors, fun fantastic beasts, and a return to the Wizarding World. Objectively, it’s a solidly average movie. But coming from the perspective of a Potterhead, it’s a good story that expands this amazing lore. This still doesn’t help me know where to land on its sequel.
