Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children #FilmReview #BriFri — 6 Comments

  1. I wondered about this too as it seemed like it was aimed at teens. I like the sound of the setting though. Our library may have this one by now, I’ll check.
    Also, I know what you mean by watching the movie instead of the book but somethings they change are so wrong. Last night I stayed up and finished the book The Light Across the Ocean. While I had planned on seeing the movie before I don’t think I will now,

  2. Oh Joy! Movies ARE quicker but that’s what I love about certain books, how long you are able to live in them. Others make much better movies than books anyway though! I didn’t read Miss Peregrine but I did watch and enjoy the movie to a degree and the setting was wonderful.
    Did you know that besides my SimCarter.com site, one of my websites is Chapter1-Take1 where all I do is post about movies based on books? I hope you’ll stop by and perhaps even follow me there!
    Some of the British films based on books I’m looking forward to in 2017 are ‘Trainspotting 2’ w Ewan McGregor et al, ‘Their Finest’ with Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy and Gemma Arterton, Julian Barnes ‘The Sense of an Ending’ w Jim Broadbent & Charlotte Rampling, ‘The Lost City of Z’ w Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson about a Brit explorer who disappears into the Amazon, ‘Arthur- The Legend of the Sword’ again with Charlie Hunnam but also Jude Law, a remake of Daphne DuMaurier’s ‘My Cousin Rachel’ w Sam Claflin and Rachel Weisz, a remake of Agatha Christies ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ w Kenneth Branagh directing and starring as Poirot, ‘On Chesil Beach’ from Ian McEwan with Saoirse Ronan, an untitled AA Milne movie starring Domhnall Gleeson & Margot Robbie, a movie based on Agatha Christie’s Crooked House and last for now—but not least—Colin Firth stars in ‘The Mercy’ based on the nonfiction book The Last Strange Voyage of Donald Crowhurst. I update the list as I discover new films based on books coming down the pike. Come visit! Oh! At the top of the list because it’s playing now, A United Kingdom w Rosamund Pike and David Oweloyo. Cheers!

  3. I did read the book – and was a bit disappointed by the ending. I’ve been meaning to see the movie; I may have to see if it’s on-demand.
