Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Loved it. Takes a while to get going but once we’re in the time loop, it’s great fun. Eva Green is beautiful and marvellous as always. Samuel L Jackson is once again a brilliant and funny villain.

The final act, with a small army of skeletons fighting a bunch of monsters on the fairground on Blackpool pier is absolutely bonkers, but huge fun.

My 11 year old daughter loved it, but was a bit confused by some of the time loop stuff at the end (so was I a bit, but don’t tell her!). However, there’s plenty here to give younger children some pretty serious nightmares (Samuel L Jackson and friends feeding on the eyeballs of murdered children!). But for everyone else, this is a real joy.

Web developer by day, with a movie and TV watchlist that continues to grow as much as my spare time reduces! My favourite movie is Inception and, despite what everyone says, I do not have a man-crush on Tom Cruise.
