Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children product reviews

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 different worlds and times, he finds a magical place known as Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers... and their powerful enemies. Ultimately, Jake discovers that only his own special "peculiarity" can save his new friends.

As soon as I saw the trailer and that Tim Burton was connected I knew I had to watch this, I've never read the books though I may get to that one day, but it had all the right elements for me. I won tickets to the movie premier and took my three kids with me (they were 6, 8 & 10 and I had no clue about the rating but they were all keen), at the end of it I'd enjoyed the film, and my kids had, except for one aspect which involved eyes, that my eldest couldn't stand at all and put him off watching it again but he has recently said he may give it another chance.

I've re-watched the film multiple times since then and have enjoyed it just as much each time. Asa does a great job as Jake, as he learns about the world his grandfather was once involved in and what creatures lurk in the shadows. I simply adore Ava Green, half my motivation for re-watching it is due to her being in it and I love how she portrays Miss Peregrine. The plot moves well and I like the little twists and turns, there's some great drama and the different characters reactions to Jake joining the gang come across as authentic. The special effects are well done, there is a fabulous scene near the end of the film (so I won't go into too much detail) which involves skeletons fighting invisible monsters (which leads to some interesting ways to make them more visible).

I love this film, it is one that I wish would get a sequel just so we could see where everyone ends up.

Product reviews for listing 5052: Monty Python's Life Of Brian -  Directed by Terry Jones

Product image for Monty Python's Life Of BrianMonty Python delivers the group's sharpest and smartest satire of both religion and Hollywood's epic films. Set in 33 A.D. Judea where the exasperated Romans try to impose order, it is a time of chaos and change with no shortage of messiahs and followers willing to believe in them. As its centre is Brian Cohen, born in Bethlehem in a stable next door, who, by a series of absurd circumstances is caught up in the new religion and ... more...
