My review for the book, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
My review for the book, Hollow City


REVIEW:
LOVE!
The hubby and I have both read the book. I also read Hollow City, the second book, so I have a great understanding for what the film should be about.
I said after reading Miss Peregrine's that Tim Burton would be the guy to make this book come alive, and I was right! He did such a great job at creating what I had in mind for the film version of the story. The kids were so well cast, they literally blew me away. I wasn't a fan of the actress that played Miss Peregrine, but that is because, in my mind, Miss Peregrine was much older than her. Still, she played her well.
I did think a couple of the scenes ended rather abruptly... and even the hubby was like, "What the hay?!" 
The film was a great adaption though, blending both the first and second book in the series. If you read the book, or books, then you will enjoy the movie. If you haven't, you may find it too peculiar for you. I suggest reading the book. Even if you think you won't like it. I love when people are surprised.... Then watch the movie.

4/5

  2. I loved the first book, but have not read the second. Might do before watching the movie. I think it is Eva Green who plays miss Peregrine. I liked her a lot in Penny Dreadful and can imagine her in this role, even, as you said, you visualise her older in the book.

  3. I agree with you! I definitely got super excited when I found out that Tim Burton was directed this movie. It just seemed right up his alley.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
