miss-peregrines-1Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is an adaptation of the best-selling novel about specially gifted children with special powers and their home being taken care of by Miss Peregrine. Miss Peregrine has to protect the gifted children from an enemy by creating a parallel universe where time starts over every day like Groundhog Day.

Jake who lives in present day discovered the home thru his grandfather who is “peculiar” and used to live in Miss Peregrine’s home. He found the magical home and got to miss-peregrines-5know the children and their special powers and their powerful enemies. He ultimately discovered that his special powers can save the peculiar children from the powerful enemy.

miss-peregrines-3The movie has great visuals and solid plot line and most of the main characters are well developed. The story telling is great where the movie took its’ time to unfold making you understand the characters; the movie is a little bit over 2 hours. The children are very likable and Eva Green dis a great job as the stepmother Miss Peregrine.

Overall, it is a good fantasy movie for children with great story, great visuals and the production design of the 1940’s is good to look at. It is a good fantasy movie on the dark side, not your typical Disney fantasy movie. This is a typical Tim Burton fantasy movie.


It stars Eva Green as Miss Peregrine, Assa Butterfield as Jake, Samuel L. Jackson as the villain Barron, Allison Janney as Dr. Golan and Judi Dench as Miss Avocet. Directed by Tim Buton.

    I thought it was quite a cute story however I cant imagine children watching this very dark movie. Don’t think this is for kids but nevertheless it is a good movie for adults. Good story and plot.

    This is one peculiar movie. Love it that the story id easy to follow.

  11. A movie meant for children but it is very dark and some parts very scary, a few scenery are so messed up imagery and really scary.

  12. Like movies of today, this one is visually stunning but there is too much going on that diminishes the quality of the movie. There is so much back story that it becomes muddy.
