Movie vs Book | Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children + April Fools vs Innocent’s Day

Hey everyone!!! 

Today is April 1st! That means today it’s April Fools!!! What an special day!

Actually, not that special for latinamericans (and other countries too).

Y’know, we don’t celebrate what you people call “April Fools” here. Our day for pranks is on December 28, “Innocent’s Day”, which we celebrate because of a catholic tradition. It is said that three days after Baby Jesus was born (December 25) king Herodes sent his soldiers to kill every baby which had 2 years or less old, so he could get rid of Him.

All those babies/toddlers were, of course, innocent. And that’s why it has that name. You prank an innocent

However, I just finished reading the origins of your celebration. And its origins are wayyy different than ours lol. But pretty interesting I must say.

In other news, a couple of hours earlier I finally watched Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. And, I need to say:

Tim Burton. What. The. Hell. 

The first hour and 15 minutes were nice. Just like any other movie based on a book, it had its minor changes but the story was okay. It was when the bomb fell on Miss Peregrine’s house that everything changed. Like. For real. Everything. Nothing was like the book. Tim Burton spent 40-45 minutes in an ending that screwed up the next two books ;-;

Of course those are my thoughts. The ending made me feel pretty uncomfortable, and also the fact that Emma had Olive’s powers and hair and viceversa. But maybe it was fine for other people. 

If you have read the books and also watched the movie, what are your thoughts?

And if not, how was your week anyway? 

The sky is the start line.

    Haha your tradition/origin sounds better than America’s. Also completely agree with you on the Miss P’s book vs. movie thing. They didn’t even pronounce the one Polish word in the entire movie correctly! That probably makes me seem picky, but it was an easily avoided mistake. Hope you’re having a good week!

    I read the trilogy and watched the movie and of course, I WAS MAD! The beginning was like “okay, still kinda exact” and then everything just changed. LIKE WHAT THE HECK!? I was so mad because most of the cool stuff in the books were not even in the movie and the Olive/Emma swap was just ridiculous. They didn’t even add the fact that Jacob can control the hollowgasts! Ugh

        Yes, but I heard that the movies was the combination of the three books

        Um, kind of. Tim wanted to end the story right there, but not really a combination

    I read the book but didn’t watch the movie yet ;-;
    It sucks how Burton changed the plot so much because the plot was amazing in the book but I didn’t really like the writing as much. It was kind of hard to get through imo
