Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

Fantastic Beasts: The Grimes of Grindelwald takes us back to the Harry Potter universe, which love it or hate it, surely we must all agree it’s one of the most comprehensively designed movie universes that has ever existed. And in celebration of the amazing feat of production design that this franchise has represented, we’re taking a look at our very favorite movie universes: the places so beautiful, so comfortable, so fantastic, so homey, so all-around gosh-darned appealing that, if given the opportunity, we’d happily jump right through the screen and live with the characters.

In Worth Mentioning we cover both Suspiria (2018) and Suspiria (1977), thanks to Patreon Kevin J. Olson, and Bohemian Rhapsody.
