MOVIE REVIEW : Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

“If I show you the rest, you have to promise not to run away.” Emma Bloom, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

This movie is, as most Tim Burton films are, beautiful to look at with it’s bright colors and almost cartoon-like scenery. The story is interesting but not “write-home-to-mom-about-it” interesting. I don’t feel like I wasted my time watching it, but I won’t be buying it either.

SPOILER ALERT

I felt like in the movie, there was a lot more love shown from Miss Peregrine. She was still strict but you saw in her mannerisms and actions that she truly loves the children. The book made her seem more like a headmistress and less affectionate than the movie did. So in this, the sacrifice from her makes more sense in the movie.

The battle with the Hollow was very different on screen than it was in the book but it was still exciting.

SUMMARY

The movie is interesting and cute. There were some aspects that were, of course, left out and it truly has the feeling of a Tim Burton movie. I’m not sure who could have done this book to movie adaptation better, but I still doubt there will be a sequel.

GRADE: C+
