Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Tim Burton takes a lot of lumps for his art..from me, and other critics, both professional and of the fan variety. Draining the wonder from Wonderland and replacing it with a sort of fantasy version of a post apocalyptic wasteland, while wildly imaginative, was not exactly what those seeking light Disney fare were looking for, and on the other end of the spectrum, stuck an odd chord with Burton die hards. Yes, the dark angle is expected, but it's a "spooky" dark Burton build his empire upon, draped with whimsical music, near slapstick comedy and an overall charm that would instantly win over the hearts of those who wish it to be Halloween, eternally. Dark Shadows seemed a perfect playground for Burton's gothic trappings, but the film was mired in it's own failed comedy and remains a topic...most fans care not to discuss. Now comes Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children which, again, seems like the right job for the right man with amazing hair, and you'll be happy to note, it's got the right trailer too!

Beautiful music..charismatic characters...MIND MELTING HORRORS!! I'm in. 

From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable motion picture experience. When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is.

  1. That looks pretty good. Definitely feels like better source material for Tim Burton than many of his other more recent films.
