    Review:'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' would have been a great film ten years ago

    “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” is a fantasy adventure film about a secret race of super powered humans living in cloistered time loops. It stars Eva Green (Miss Alma LeFay Peregrine), Asa Butterfield (Jake Portman), Chris O'Dowd (Franklin Portman), Terence Stamp (Abraham Portman), Judi Dench (Miss Esmeralda Avocet), Ella Purnell (Emma Bloom), and Samuel L. Jackson (Mr Barron). The immense challenge that “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” faces is the fact that we’re already saturated by stories of super powered beings, so any story about the discovery of a secret world of super powers has to avoid retreading the same standard tropes.
