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.
- The Verdict
My watch-list of movies and TV shows continues to grow, while my available spare time continues to shrink. Occasionally I’ll manage to tick one off the list, and then I’ll try and ramble on a little bit about it on here.
