Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

movie

Honestly speaking, I didn’t intend to watch this movie. I watched it on theater for a friend’s sake. But at the end, I guess I liked it more than my friend did. Director Tim Burton’s film, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is based on the best-selling novel by American author Ransom Riggs.

Miss Peregrine is the headmistress of a small school and harbors superpower children (it reminded me of X-Men & Harry Potter series). The story also roamed around a teenage boy Jake who, following a tragic death of his beloved grandfather, follows clues that take him to an abandoned orphanage on a mysterious Welsh island.

Miss Peregrine has the peculiar gift to manipulate time and to change herself into a Peregrine Falcon. She has been living the same day again and again for ages with his special children. This newfound information takes Jacob on a time-traveling, magical journey that changes his life forever.

The enigma and uncertainty deepen as Jake gets to know the children and discover their special powers and their peculiar enemies. Sooner or later, Jake discovers that only his special “peculiar power” to see the monsters can save others.

Film’s visual effects are amazing and a treat for the eyes. The young cast and creative team of Miss Peregrine does an incredible job. The movie is made with 3D effects which are great and gives us an unforgettable experience. Thus if you love adventure, fantasy and if the kid inside you is still alive, you must go & watch it. Stay Peculiar.

  1. I wasn’t planning to watch the movie as I always try to read the book first. But ended up watching the movie with my fiance and we really loved it, likewise to what you said it did somewhat remind me of X-Men and Harry Potter series but loved this film. The little strong girl was a favourite.

    P.S I am a new blogger and would love if you beautiful people could check/follow it. Thank you in advance 🙂

  6. I have actually never heard of the book or the movie, but i absolutely love when you go to the movie without the highest of hopes and the movies surprises you and you end up liking it!! glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  7. Been meaning to see this. Since I have two kids, I’m always on the lookout for children’s movies that are fun for adults too. I’m also convinced the weirder movies are good for my kids’ creativity, lol

  8. I watched it the week it went out! I love Tim Burton but I adore Eva Green and my friends chose the movie instead of going to the museum! ^^
    I loved it, also it was not as scary as I would have like, especially considering how creepy (But AWESOME!) some of those kids are (I hate bees, I cannot ell you how many times I cringe when that boy opened his mouth).
    My friends debate on how the grandfather could be alive when they turned back time in the new loop, and I must admit, I did not get that either.
    But aside this confusion, it was a great movie, I love that you posted on it ^^
    Thanks for sharing, cheers!

    1. Thank you for sharing with us your wonderful experience.. And ah that little boy with bees was little creepy to me too.. I loved the scene when ship came out of the water.. It was incredible.. Glad you had an amazing time too

    1. Ah the movie is not scary.. There are few visual effects in the movie which you are really gonna enjoy in 3D.. I have a tendency to remove my 3D glasses in every movie, but in this one I actually forgot that I am wearing one..

  9. Well . . .same stuff with me! It was my daughter who wanted to see it! Great effects! Long movie but not boring! Interesting loop concept! Never imagined something like that! Revive for ever a nice day!
