Feeling the Avengers Assemble and Avatar vibes.

We had the Twilight Saga. We had The Hunger Games. We even had Divergent and The Maze Runner. Now, to add to the list of YA (young adult) book-to-screen adaptations is (drum roll please)… Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, based on Ransom Riggs' novel of the same title and directed by Tim Burton, who's known for his gothic, dark movies and adds something fresh to the YA market – it can also be seen to be influenced by various other movies, while largely following the original novel.

If there was one film that I considered (and still consider) to be unique in plot and setting, it would be The Maze Runner – a 2014 film based on the young adult (YA) dystopia book of the same name by James Dashner, and another YA film in the long line of book-to-film adaptations. I have found that it is similar to the likes of The Hunger Games and the ending comparable to that of The Divergent Series: Insurgent.
