With this charming and thrilling tale, Tim Burton’s signs one of his best works in recent years.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

The end of the year is approaching quickly. It seems as if Tim Burton wishes to finish it properly by releasing his new long-awaited film : Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Film Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Tim Burton doesn’t need any introduction. Thanks to his unique creativity and his magical way of telling moving stories, Burton has inscribed his name on the list of inescapable film producers and directors of our generation. Yet, his latest projects have proven to be disappointments that made us believe that the glorious years of his genius were gone. But Miss Peregrine and her peculiar children have made a point of ceasing this rumour.

Based on the American best sellers written by Ramson Riggs, the film follows the story of young Jake who, at the death of his grandfather, discovers the existence of a bewitching place: the home of Miss Peregrine. Just as Professor Xavier in the X-Men saga, this mystery benefactress welcomes under her wings (literally and figuratively) the children endowed with singular abilities. Thus, our heroes meets amongst others : a young girl lighter than the air itself, a pair of twins strangely dressed who turn into stone whoever makes eye contact with them, a very attaching invisible boy, a redhead girl who possesses the pyrokinesis gift and an adolescent using hearts to breathe life into objects or corpses of his choice.

Miss Peregrine is not left behind as she owns the ability of metamorphosing into a bird and the power of creating a time loop like in Groundhog Day that allows her establishment to be protected from external attacks. An unusual family whose balance is put to rough ordeal when the greedy Barron and his hollowgasts pursue them to acquire more powers and eternal life. A sad fate which Jake alone seems to be able to save them from.

Endowed with a visual and musical atmosphere proper to Burton’s classics, the film begins with a succession of portraits of individuals with empty white eyes that announces straightaway the tonality of the story that is about to begin : mysterious and gloomy. It follows an exciting and mesmerising fable that keeps oscillating between horror and dark imageries that retains all our attention for more than two hours.

To the great pleasure of Burton’s fans, the well-known producer of The Nightmare Before Christmas or Edward Scissorhands returns to his first love : a gothic tale punctuated with themes such as childhood, loneliness, fantastic and tortured psychologies. He offers us a time travel and story about differences where he can deployed all his creative, fertile and singular strength.

In the credits of the film, we can notice an absent Johnny Depp but numerous other talented people. At their head, the sumptuous Eva Green. She makes a remarkable comeback on big screen after acting as Vanessa Ives in the underrated TV show Penny Dreadful for three consecutive years. This charming actress that has got us used to cold and disarming roles so far is convincing and magnetising under the skin of this caring protector. Next to her, we find a Samuel L. Jackson more diabolical and scary than ever and the young Asa Butterfield as Jake, a promising boy revealed in Hugo Cabret by Martin Scorsese.

With Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Tim Burton finds again his long lost inspiration and shows us a world where infirmities turn into strengths.

This beautifully strange, moving and gripping story will stir the eternal children that we all have inside of us and will please the Burtonian public that has been neglected these last years.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  9. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
