Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children may not be classic Tim Burton but it is one of his more entertaining outings of late which, with the exception of Frankenweenie, haven’t been great. This might not quite be a film for the entire family as there are darker elements but for older kids, they might dig some of the visuals and characters they might relate with on some level.
Frankweenie didn’t do much for me both on an emotional level or general entertainment. The voice talents are fine but the story was too stretched out and got a bit tedious towards the end. That being said, if you’re a fan of Burton’s previous works or love stop-motion, there are worse ways to spend 90-minutes and a rental fee. The Blu-ray combo set offers up gorgeous video and audio transfers but the features are much to be desired.
Sadly, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland doesn’t deliver outside of some great looking visuals and his knack for the strange and bizarre, but like even the best of Burton’s films, the characters are rarely compelling and often one-dimensional. This 3D Blu-ray on the other hand does at least offer a third-dimension and easily one of the best 3D BD releases yet. Everything else in this set is basically the same from the original 2D Blu-ray including the audio and features but for those set up with 3D technology, this would be an easy purchase.
