    I loved the books so much, I was so fucking pissed at the movie that we left. Honestly, that’s the first time I’ve ever done that

    I was really sad about Horace in the movie. He didn’t have ANY character. All we knew was that he liked clothes, and that he can project his dreams/see into the future in his nightmares. No personality, no character development, just THAT. We didn’t get to see him being sassy, petty, a coward, or even a smartalec like he is in the books.

  • The Continuing Adventures of Lenny Wanser

    I like Tim Burton films. Especially the ones that have the signature Burton vibe to them such as, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, and Big Fish. This film has the visual appeal but lacks the heart.

    I read the whole series when I was locked up loved them so much. Couldnt wait to read them every night. Yeah it starts slow but it does go along wit novel and the novel gets really really excited so part two to movie would be awesome I bet wit tim burton

    You’re point about “imagine never seeing Harry cast a spell in Harry Potter” is funny cause he doesn’t actually cast a single spell in the first movie.

    Well Jake didn't have powers like Harry Potter and he was a scrony kid that couldn't fight

    like most book adaptations the book is better but if you havnt read the book you'll like it. it is much better than the butcher job they did to ready player one for sure

    This feels more like Children of the Atom than the X-Men (in a good way). Wilmar Shiras's tales about a school for gifted youths was written in a way much more character driven than any pre-Claremont X-stories.

    I don’t normally read the books first but this one I did and it was one of the most interesting series book I’ve read in a while. (The ending wasn’t sad, but I cried when I finished the book because it was over...) Definitely recommend reading the book! I liked the movie. Preferred the book because it’s one of those books that sucks you in and makes you feel like you are apart of the world.

    Toward the end their a girl who like can grow plants...i did not knew she was their.also if they are ex-hallows why they loose the ability to see their hallow bros also why are their so many hallows it seem more than that was shown or killed.

    i was extremely bored. It felt like one of those set-up movies that pave the path for a sequel. It's not a good stand-alone

    The book is good but extremely confusing. The movie is okay.

    Fun movie and good time

  • Harry The Sailor

    Okay, here's my review:

    The hollows looked like shit
    There were no good characters
    What do you mean he only asks questions? He goes on a FUCKING ADVENTURE
    Sam L Jackson is funny because of how little he's trying
    Who wants more screen time on a girl with a mouth on the back of her head and the twins that did literally did 1 thing the entire movie
    the hollows looked like shit

    Not a movie review, it’s more like a character review. You bully

    The strange thing about this movie is: In this movie, Emma is the one that floats, but in the BOOK, Emma is the one that can create fire. I still don't understand why they did this.

  • The Piano Man
    The Piano Man Year ago

    really, i dont think that you can compare books and movies: theyre both different types of art forms and each have their pros and cons- the books were great and i thought the movie was really good - the part about jake going back to his dad was in the book and was explained - id highly recommend it

    The books are WAY better. I liked the movie mostly because I got to see what everything looked like but that was it. If you read the Books you'll understand 😂

    I was so disappointed by the movie. The way they traded the Powers of Olive and Emma. The way they ended the movie. The way they screwed up Jake.

    The part where Jake might have been interesting is thrown away as a toss off line in the end of the film.

  • Karen Brakefield

    I was disappointed. And I love Eva Green. I agree with Chris on this one I was bored very quickly.

    Seen it once and it was one of my favourite films because I assumed it would suck and loved it

    I loved this movie until the midway point, then it fell to shit

  • Elliot Behr
    Elliot Behr Year ago

    The actual novel series WOULD translate into a great movie series, if Tim Burton would have stuck to the source material without turning it into this clusterfuck. He changed one detail (amongst a lot of other questionable choices) from the book and thus ruined any chance of actually making it a movie series. Unless he decides to add more useless nonsense onto it and thus change the entire point of the books.

  • Sebastian Melmoth

    The casting of Miss Peregrine was AWFUL. She was utterly unconvincing and self-consciously out of sync with the character. Remarkable how you did not pick this up.

    I can sense your desire for a Spirited Away 2 :)
    As for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, I'd give a B. Tim Burton is more of a artsy-driven director, not toward a good story. And I think the movie brought up the tension to the half of its running time. The music and the situation was growing more creepy, and we were just starting to know about the threat upon the main characters. But... the final battle & ending ruined all. (SPOILER!!)
    I was so interested by the fact the hallowgasts' origin backstories, and the fact they were searching for eternal life by fasting on Peculiar children. However, in the end it just muddled clumsily into a group fight. All the nostalgia left me, and I didn't even felt surprised by the reveal of the twins' powers. Also, I can't understand WHY there was a Enoch & Olive shipping!!!
    I believe this film would have done so well, if given more time to stretch its world and concept. At least give it a sequel, for film's sake! I really thought this was gonna be another masterpiece of Tim Burton... (i still enjoy it, though)

    This movie sadly sounds like garbage in, garbage out. The book was a disappointment, and is just as disjointed as you made the movie sound. If you didn't like the main character in the movie, you probably would've hated him in the book. I was more interested in the life of his grandpa. Too bad they killed him off right away in the book.

    It would be cool if you did a Sweeney Todd review Chris!

    Besides this being a Tim Burton film I want to see this movie because of Eva Green. I’ve been watching Penny Dreadful lately and she is fantastic in that show..

    There is like 40 times where the line delivery is horribly bad!
    I actually laughed while watching this movie several times (not the comedic parts).

    in the book Jake is way more action packed

  • Pathfinder0708962

    First, I think the only major problem was the ending. It just didn’t make any sense how Jake’s grandfather came back. Another thing is that I highly doubt that they’ll make another one because they went in a completely different direction than the books. (Spoiler alert if you haven’t read the first book) In the first one, Jake leaves his Dad when he finds out the kids are in danger from a Hollowgast and tries to help. In the end, Ms. Peregrine isn’t rescued and her whereabouts are unknown. The loop is destroyed and the kids along with Jake try to find her and that’s the end of the first book.

    You should red in the book I love then love Jacob is not Pouring in the book. The only time he asked questions is when he first meets with peregrine.

    I’m a huge fan of the book, and I hated the movie. They changed WAY too much, and added some things that didn’t work. Hopefully the next movie is better.

    For me this film now that you're describing it should've been like the anime "Demi Chan" which I actually saw last year and I loved. The character of Jake could be like Takahashi who's incredibly interested in these Demis and develops strong connections with them while learning about them. Honestly Chris you should give that anime a look it's really good

  • Mina

    The movie fucking sucked in my opinion. The books are so much better, filled with incredible mystery, and utilize a lot of character development. I was so disappointed in the movie. It was hardly anything like the book.

  • Alex R.

    You can very much tell the screenplay was adapted from a book... like, they go over plot points that would probably take two page or three to explain in the book over a dialogue exchange no more than two lines long.... by the third act it seemed like they were just doing things just because since the explanations where so damn vague!
