As someone who has read the book and done research on the movie, I knew the two weren't going to be exactly alike. From seeing that two of the Peculiars' talents had been swapped in the movie to reading about the made-for-the-movie Mr. Barron, I knew what I was getting into. And yet, I was still utterly disappointed in this film adaptation of the book. It was nice cinematography at times and Eva Green was a great choice for Miss Peregrine, but everything else was garbage in my opinion. The casting seemed ill-fitting, the storyline was so heavily altered that there leaves almost no room for a sequel that will be based off of the book sequels, and the villains (Mr. Barron, the Hollows, etc.) were laughable. Also, they never fully mentioned in the movie what Mr. Barron and his friends were - Wights. That was left unexplained which is unfortunate for people who haven't read the books. I started out intrigued and excited for this film, and ended up being bored, unimpressed, and overall annoyed with it. Sorry Tim Burton, but you could have done better.
