Tim Burton And Eva Green Feel Like They Were Made For Miss Peregrine


Tim Burton Eva Green

So he was clearly a perfect fit to direct the adaptation of Ransom Riggs' bestseller Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. "One of the things that I loved about the story is that I think a lot of us are deemed as weird or peculiar," Burton says. "The fact is, while all these kids have their peculiarities, if you didn't know what those peculiarities were, they'd just be viewed as normal kids. That's something I really felt close to, and it was an interesting dynamic in the story."

Burton says that he fell in love with Riggs' book on first sight. "It was the first time I looked at a book and loved it before I read it, and that was because of the old photographs," he says. "There's something quite mysterious, haunting and poetic about old photographs. The way he constructed a story around these photographs was quite clever. That idea was inspiring, just on its own. It was an interesting kind of way to create a story. It made it feel like a weird old fable."

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Review

Good

Ransom Riggs' bestselling novel is appropriately adapted into a movie by Tim Burton, the gothic maestro who so expertly infuses his creepy movies with vivid emotions. The film looks flat-out amazing, with lush production design, clever effects and a cast of outrageous characters. So it's somewhat frustrating that the movie feels weighed down by a story that's more complicated than it needs to be. There's too much plot detail explained in the dialogue, and the quirkiness gets a bit exhausting by the time the film passes the two hour mark.

It's set in the present day, as Florida teen Jake (Asa Butterfield) travels to an island off the coast of Wales to bring closure after the death of his beloved grandfather (Terence Stamp). His oblivious father (Chris O'Dowd) goes with him, but doesn't notice that Jake has discovered that Grandpa's bombed-out childhood home actually still exists in a 1943 time loop created by the ymbryne Miss Peregrine (Eva Green), who can turn into a bird and maintain loops like this one. Jake also realises that the freaky Barron (Samuel L. Jackson) is on his trail, so he tries to help Miss Peregrine rescue her children, all of whom have peculiar supernatural abilities.

From here the film takes on a more traditional action trajectory, as Barron and his toothy, long-limbed Hollows try to devour the children's eyes. Yes, there are a lot of grotesque touches in this story, and Burton knows that kids in the audience love this kind of stuff. They'll also be tantalised by the busy visual landscapes, which are magnificent in 3D, grossed out by the yuckiness and excited by the thrilling set-pieces. Adults will find all of this a bit harder to stomach, simply because the wordy dialogue never quite makes sense of the messy plot.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Trailer


Jake has always been an ordinary boy but when he finds himself on a small island, things begin to happen that few people would be able to explain. His new friend, a beautiful young girl named Emma seems to be able to perform miraculous occurrences start to happen. 

Things become a little clearer - yet utterly more baffling - when he's taken to meet Miss Peregrine at her exceptional orphanage for children. As Jacob is quick to learn, each of Miss Peregrine's kids has a special ability, something unique to them. Emma can control oxygen and must wear hefty boots to keep her feet firmly attached to the ground, whilst Bronwyn is a little girl with incredible physical strength. 

Miss Peregrine is the protector of the children and acts as their matriarch. To keep them safe she's formulated a way of manipulating time to keep the kids away from dangerous monsters who hunt them down - however, as the dark forces become stronger the Children are placed in more and more danger - unbeknownst to Jacob, perhaps he holds the key to keeping his new friends safe. 

'Penny Dreadful' Season Three: A New Famous Literary Character Is On The Way


Josh Hartnett Eva Green Timothy Dalton

‘Penny Dreadful’ might have just finished its second season but that doesn't mean fans aren’t already early awaiting the series’ return. While Sunday night’s finale episode might have served up a few shocking moments and one surprise exit, season three already looks to be just as exciting, with the promise of a new character joining the fray.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner John Logan revealed that a famous new character would be joining the series next season, though he was extra careful not to give too much away. “I can tell you this—and this is such a tease,” Logan said.

The Salvation Review


Excellent

Just when you thought no one could come up with a fresh take on the Western, the Danes arrive with this astonishingly earthy and inventive film, shot in South Africa no less. Director Kristian Levring uses all of the usual elements without ever resorting to cliches, which makes the film strikingly involving. Not only are the characters people we can identify with, but their moral dilemmas are strikingly provocative. Especially as the violence escalates.

The story opens in 1871, as Danish immigrant Jon (Mads Mikkelsen) welcomes his wife (Nanna Oland Fabricius) and young son to the American prairie where he has worked for seven years. But on the way home from the station, they are ambushed by outlaws. After a desperate struggle, Jon manages to kill them, but this puts him on the wrong side of the local boss Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who enforces cooperation from the town's mayor-undertaker (Jonathan Pryce) and sheriff-priest (Douglas Hensall). So aside from his brother Peter (Mikael Persbrandt), Jon has nowhere to turn. His only hope of justice is to deliver it himself.

Adding an intriguing layer is the fact that Jon and Peter are veterans of Denmark's civil war, just as the locals are survivors of America's. So everyone has war in their blood. The Danish brothers have vowed to turn their backs on violence and build a lawful society, so the flurry of clashes, kidnappings and killings with Delarue's goons (including Eric Cantona) are tinged with regretfulness. And the script never lets the audience off lightly: in the Wild West, no one is safe. Civilisation has only begun to arrive in this isolated place, but the discovery of oil has replaced old world values with pure, unfiltered greed. Yes, there's a lot more going on here than the usual swaggering Western machismo. And the casting has as much to do with that as the script.

White Bird In A Blizzard Review


Very Good

There's an unusual honesty to this film, which is an odyssey into the inner life of a teen girl. Gregg Araki has made a career out of understanding the often tortured inner workings of the adolescent mind, and this is one of his most beautifully crafted films yet, artfully circling around a central mystery while digging deeply into each of the characters. And while it seems a bit straightforward for an Araki movie, it's packed with his usual darker corners, especially in the surprising final act.

It's set in the autumn of 1988, when Kat (Shailene Woodley) feels her life fall apart. She's just 17, on the verge of womanhood when her mother (Eva Green) inexplicably vanishes, leaving her dad (Christopher Meloni) struggling to help her through puberty. Her best pals (Mark Indelicato and Gabourey Sidibe) are some help, but at the same time she begins to feel a growing distance from her boyfriend Phil (Shiloh Fernandez). Is all of this connected, or is this because of Phil's own family issues? As she plays through the various clues in her mind, the answers are also eluding the local tough-guy detective (Thomas Jane). A few years later, Kat returns home from her studies at Berkeley to visit her dad. And maybe this time she'll finally find out what happened.

The film is a beautiful depiction of the awkwardness of being a teenager, when everything seems wrong but feelings are so strong. Araki fills the screen with sumptuous imagery including dreamy sequences set in a snowy landscape where Kat mentally searches for her mother. And flashbacks offer more earthy glimpses into this difficult mother-daughter relationship, especially as Kat and her once-glamorous mother begin to shift in their roles. Clearly, Kat suspects that her mother ran away after seducing Phil, but the truth isn't quite this obvious.

'White Bird In A Blizzard' Is Sort Of A Bad Version Of 'Gone Girl'


Shailene Woodley Christopher Meloni Eva Green

Shailene Woodley has made a varied start to her career in Hollywood - breaking through in Alexander Payne's superb comedy-drama The Descendants before making two of the teen-dramas of the decade, The Fault in Our Stars and The Spectacular Now. However, she's already committed to numerous movies in the Divergent franchise - the first of which suffered poor reviews last year - and her latest movie, White Bird in a Blizzard isn't exactly setting preview screenings alight.

White Bird in a BlizzardShailene Woodley in 'White Bird in a Blizzard'

Woodley stars as Kat Connors, a 17-year-old whose perfect mother Eve suddenly disappears. However, after discovering her newfound sexuality, Kat barely registers her mother's absence and regards it as somewhat of a relief. When times passes, she begins to come to terms with the disappearance and eventually becomes confronted with the truth.
