Bombshell (****) lands solidly

“Which brings me back to Roach. He’s biased, one can see he’s basically a fair story teller. The desire to give a balanced and honest assessment is essential to understanding the old ways we are leaving to the new world yet to come.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (****)

Burton’s instincts are tempered here. He’s allowed the weirdness we normally get from him, but without any of the routine “no one understands how weird I want to be” normally pushed to the forefront. Having Green in the role normally reserved for Helena Bonham Carter infests certainly helps. Ultimately we get all of the benefits of the imagination of the creators with very few of the indulgences of a director who hasn’t heard “no” when it comes to a budget since Superman Lives.
