Directed by Tim Burton, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (based upon the novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs) is about boy named Jacob who discovers a secret home for peculiar children (children with strange abilities). I was actually really enjoying the first half of this movie but the moment you see Tim Burton’s face in his cameo, everything goes very downhill. I really liked Chris O’Dowd’s scenes and Samuel L. Jackson wasn’t half bad, but Asa Butterfield’s acting however was not that great. I didn’t really feel for any main characters and the music doesn’t work with the film at all, especially during a certain scene involving cotton candy in which not a single element of the movie blends together, resulting in the worst few minutes of Tim Burton’s filmography that I have seen. If you’re a fan of the books then don’t expect a completely faithful adaptation. The 1st act is quite enjoyable, the 2nd act not so much, and the 3rd is not good at all, so unless you really like Tim Burton-isms, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will probably disappoint.

This film is a little creepier than most family movies but 12 and up should be able to handle it.

Available on iTunes and Amazon.
