Fall has officially just started, but there's one more superhero flick just before all the summer heat vanishes completely.Not X-Men, but X-Tweens.They're the unlikely young heroes and heroines of "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," Tim Burton's 3-D film, loosely based on the novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs. Asa Butterfield plays a young adult who stumbles upon a secret refuge for supernaturally gifted youngsters hiding in a time loop in 1943 . Our hero befriends the mysterious schoolmarm Miss Peregrine (Eva Green), who channels a sexy Mary Poppins by way of Helena Bonham Carter. The peculiar children of the film's title are certainly unique but you can find plenty of other films in the DNA of "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," particularly skeleton soldiers from "Jason and the Argonauts," the X-Men franchise for making freaks lovable, "Groundhog Day" and even the Hayden Christensen film "Jumper," which has time shifting at its core and the same sort of evil force in Samuel L. Jackson.
