Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children 

2/4 stars

Tim Burton tackles the Y/A subgenre of blockbuster film making with this adaptation of I'm guessing is supposed to be a popular book series. It's basically X-MEN but with a dash of C.S. Lewis' Narnia tropes thrown in for good measure. The gothic overtones and creepy characters fit Tim Burton's style and it's at least far better than his other book adaptations.But what should be more engaging is instead bogged down in exposition and world-building so it takes a long time for the plot to even begin. I'll give it this, it looks neat and there's always something weird going on. But if it's an actual story you're looking for, just rewatch Hunger Games or even Divergent.
