The Peculiar Peculiarity
Imagine a world where time stopped forever and the only threat to your existence is a perpetuating loop.
Sounds strange right? Well, that's what Abe and his friends try to overcome in one of 2016's wildest fantasies.
Now, what makes this story even more entertaining is that along with a time loop, there are certain unseen beings that understand the time rip and try to eliminate anyone living in it.
So what are the unseen beings called? Well, they are called "Hollows". They are the invisible creatures that can only live on peculiarities of the gifted. You'll see what I mean once you watch the film.
Along with the interesting Hollows, there are several characters within Abe's story that bring a touch of love, determination and self-discovery that make this tale an unforgettable experience.
Without giving too much away, this movie is something anyone can enjoy that's willing to think a little outside of the box.
The Hollow Master
Now, just in case you've been living under a rock, I'll tell you who that guy is in the picture above.
This man's name is Samuel Jackson and he's starring in this film as Mr. Barron, leader of the Hollows.
So what does he want? Well, if you look at his eyes, that should give you a clear indication that it's not anything good.
Actually, he and his constituents are a collective group seeking out people like Abe and Miss Peregrine for their uncanny abilities. He feels that if he can devour their essence that he can build an empire of hollows and take over the world.
Nothing like a little world domination to get the heart pumping, right?
After Watching, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children...
I've got to say that is was as good as expected, not too over the top and not too far below an adult's intelligence. The film itself is based on a story from author, Ransom Riggs which was re-imagined and tweaked for cinematic tastes by Jane Goldman and Mr. Tim Burton himself.
As I said, this is a fantasy ride telling a story of love and courage, but it's definitely got a little more sustenance tucked away in it's pages to leave the kid in you feeling just a bit more peculiar.
Which in this case is a good thing..lol
