Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children REVIEWS

  • Could've been a great film. Despite some intriguing story elements and a promising first act, it sadly ends up being OK.

    October 2nd, 2016

    Just to clarify one thing: I don't hate Tim Burton at all. In fact, I kinda love his work. He has a very unique and imaginative vision, seems to have a tasteful choice for actors (besides Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter), and can really pour his heart and soul in some of his films like "Edward Scissorhands", "Corpse Bride", and "The Nightmare Before...

  • Whatever happened to Tim Burton?!

    October 2nd, 2016

    Tim Burton strikes me as a pretty peculiar man so he was the right fit for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, a film based on the novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs. Burton has disappointed me recently and I haven't really enjoyed one of his films since Sleepy Hollow back in 1999.. Jake Portman (Asa Butterfield) is a boy who doesn't ...

  • Tim Burton's X-Men

    October 2nd, 2016

    Tim Burton has tackled almost all of the genre's, and done most of them very well. So who doesn't want to see him go back to his adventure-fantasy comfort zone with Miss Peregrine? . It's billed as Tim Burton's X-Men, and I like that comparison a lot. It definitely has certain similarities to a mutant story, but with Burton's flare for obscurity a...

  • Very different from the books and just a major disappointment

    October 2nd, 2016

    My daughter and I had read the books. Fans will be disappointed because the film deviates from the original story so much, it is surprising this is called an adaptation. The peculiar children as an example were not all portrayed as written and some were even missing. My daughter kept asking why this child or that child were not there? Miss Peregri...

  • I enjoyed the movie

    October 12th, 2016

    I am not very familiar with Tim Burton's work (only watched a handful of his movies), neither have I read the book, so I will review this movie as it is, without comparing it to the usual craftsmanship of Mr. Burton nor the characters or events as depicted in the source material.. I found the movie entertaining, and at no point did I wonder "How l...

  • When did Tim Burton decide to abandon story telling?

    October 12th, 2016

    It's official. For a number of years now it's been suspected that Tim Burton had lost his love for story telling and this film just confirms it. There exists no story whatsoever in this film, which is an achievement considering it is based on a best selling novel with a coherent story. For me this film was made just so Burton could live out his fa...

  • Tim Burton classic

    September 28th, 2016

    Tim Burton does it again - he manages to create with passion and imagination a whole new world, for those of us who need new worlds. Thus if you love fantasy and dreams made serious and scary go see it in 3d because it's great. If you are more of an adult than the child within and you like films with linear plot and logic and exhaustive explanatio...

  • Bizarre, Wild and Fantastic

    September 25th, 2016

    The story is about Jake who stumbles upon an orphanage where there are beings with extraordinary gifts. He meets Miss Peregrine, who invites him to be a part of the family. Burton delivers a breathtaking movie, with gorgeous visuals. As he brings a fairy tale to the silver screen. At the end, I found myself unable to stand, As "Miss Peregrine's Ho...

  • And a mint for you.....

    October 30th, 2016

    After a family tragedy, a boy named Jake follows a series of clues that lead him to a mysterious orphanage on a remote Welsh island. . There, he discovers a community of children with unusual abilities, and learns he is destined to protect them....... Burton has a distinct eye for his wonderfully steam punk/Gothic tastes when it comes to making a ...

  • Continues modern Burton trend

    October 1st, 2016

    Miss Peregrine's home for Peculiar Children was easily my most anticipated film of this Fall. I had read the book, and I think Tim Burton was an excellent person to direct this film. I had no idea what was in store.. The first bit was good, as it was more like the book, except with the character switching of Claire and Emma, though they actually m...
