Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016)
The short story is that if you are a fan of Tim Burton movies you will enjoy this movie. It has all of the essential elements that he brings to the table, which for me is that a very creepy story is told with a certain combination of flair and humor so as to lessen the creepiness and augment the elegance in a way that is charming. The costuming is up to his usual standards, which is outstanding, and the set design and sound are spectacular. Miss Peregrine alone is just astounding to behold. Her dresses match her demeanor and her physical presence to a tee. The problem is that the story is long and convoluted and so if you cannot wait to get to the plot points upon which the story turns, you will definitely find this to be a slog of a movie. I watch this sort of movie for the diversionary entertainment of it all, and so I was in no way disappointed, and I believe it can be that way for others.
