Movies: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children


This is a most peculiar film by Tim Burton.  This fantasy set in current time is based on the grandson, Jake, and his journey to connect to his Grandfather’s life long stories about a mystery world.

It is a world within the current world where paranormal children and those who would harm them live together.  There are good guys and bad guys each with “special powers” that are often in conflict with one another.

It is often macabre, often dark, emotional yet also intelligent, intriguing and eerie.  This adventure/fantasy movie is rated PG (but I would caution parents, some scenes are pretty intense).   Run time is 2 hours, 7 minutes.

It has a very impressive cast: Eva Green, Samuel Jackson, Judi Dench, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, Chris O’Dowd, and Kim Dickens.

Rating: 3 globes

SPECIAL NOTE:  With John’s retirement this week, we are departing in a few hours for a five week journey to Europe.  We will keep in touch via our blog and e-mail every few days or so.

We will try to catch a few movies here and there so the reviews will keep coming.

Cheers to all!
