A British wizard travels to New York City, but his case full of endangered magical creatures causes trouble in a city that already has its own creature problem.

Weak characters, a shit plot with lots of filler and generally unlikeable. Especially bad in light of the earlier movies set in this universe. God that main character is fucking terrible to watch.

I will forever misremember this title as Fantastic Breasts and Where to Find Them. No fantastic breasts were found in this movie.

It is discovered that a person and their voice can be paired with certain words to manifest effects in the real world.

Tiring. Slow, confusing, and after 12 minutes it gets into a bit of a plot. The world has not been particularly well-explained.. giving this too little substance to hold my attention.

A distracted surgeon crashes his car and is left with ruined hands, but he's brought into a magic order who defend the planet and universe and stuff.

Two orphans become witch hunters.

This is not horror. It's kindof a light action film. Quite good.

Rescued from an unknown realm, a demon, raised as a monster-hunting government agent, faces his destiny and the destruction of the world.

A rather good movie, because it features a relatable and mortal character. The time of its release was not saturated with this genre, so it was gave a strong impression. Even re-watching it was entertaining. I think this will hold up very well over time.
