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: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
