Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children
This one is based on a book from a couple of years ago that I read, and I must say felt a bit meh about, so I didn't have high hopes. Tim Burton films are a bit that way for me too. Although often visually pleasing with high contrast bright images with great attention to detail I often find them long and a bit tedious.
And that was the impression I was left with after watching the movie. Like the book I came away not sure that I actually understood the plot, even after reading the Wikipedia description. I am not sure that I am the target audience or have the necessary sense of whimsy that the movie was directed at. Still it was a 99c special so I should not complain. 3/5
