Adaptation Battle: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children [Spoilers!]


Oh adaptations, how we love and hate thee. Even though I’m always a bit apprehensive I love adaptations, I love watching books come to life but I know that I’ll always be just the tiniest bit disappointed in some missed or changed detail. That being said, I’m also one of those people that once I know something’s an adaptation I HAVE TO read the book because finding the differences always feels like finding some hidden Easter egg.

So! I thought that doing a whole series on my blog comparing and discussing adaptations would be fun. I recently (and by recently I mean an entire month ago) found myself watching Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children one day which then got me knee deep into a reread of the book, which I love by the way. I figured this was as good a place as any to start for my first “adaptation battle”.

I’ve been doing a lot of reviews lately so I wanted to mix it up a little bit by sharing some of my favourite films with you! I love films, I love cinematography and lighting and set designs and colour palettes and costumes (and of course, acting and plot); I just love everything about films okay, specifically aesthetic films. You know those ones whose shots just take your breath away. Yeah, those. Anyway, here’s just a handful of my favourite films (I probably should have called this ‘aesthetically pleasing films I’ve obsessed over but whatever).

I’ve tried to be as not spoiler-y as I can with my descriptions and comments on each film! I’ve updated this post with content warnings that are not spoiler free.
