Miss Peregrine’s peculiar movie

Tim Burton book adaptation lives up to high expectations.

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is one of the most interesting movies of the year.

This movie has the perfect blend of action and humorous intelligence while also bringing elements of suspense, fantasy, and eeriness.

The film comes out to a slow start, given the exposition and introduction of background information and characters needed to set up the story line. However, when the film’s main plot begins to unfold, the action and fantasy enthrall the audience.

The film follows main character Jacob as he begins to uncover a mystery surrounding him. The movie begins with Jacob going to visit his grandpa in London, but he finds him on his deathbed.

When he was younger, Jacob would listen to his grandpa tell stories and show him pictures of children that had special abilities, such as an invisible boy and a girl who defies gravity.

After witnessing his grandpa’s death, Jacob begins to recount the unusual stories that his grandpa told him. Jacob’s friends and family hear these stories and think he is going insane.

Jacob is then put into counseling, and his therapist suggests that they take him to Wales so that he can see the home of these alleged “special children”.

Little did Jacob and his family know that this trip would lead to many discoveries and fantastic adventures.

It is not only the intriguing story line that makes this movie great, but also the acting and special effects.

This movie does a great job of immersing the audience in the world of the peculiar and unusual and showcasing a fun fantasy adventure that intrigues all who watch. This movies will make anyone feel like a kid again.
