Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

Stay peculiar

http://www.foxmovies.com/movies/miss-peregrines-home-for-peculiar-children

A teenager finds himself transported to an island where he must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures intent on destroying them.

_Miss Peregrine's_ could have done with a little more peculiarity. I understand that the lead is our door into this fantastical world, but a character can be relatable without being downright boring. Not an outright bad movie, but certainly not the one to put Tim Burton back on track.
Eva Green is golden but under-utilised, Sam Jackson can barely talk through his fake teeth, the creature designs are fantastic but pulled off with some very poor CGI. There is a little stop-motion to counter this, but again, it's not used to the degree it should have been. Which is really an apt description for the whole thing. Over an over, _Miss Peregrine's_ hints at a great movie buried somewhere within it, but what we end up with is an ill-paced mess. The only truly engaging character momets of the whole story are dropped as soon as they crop up in favour of the "Good VS Evil" rhetoric you've seen a million times before.
_Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
