Film Fanatics: The ‘Peculiar’ and the ‘Magnificent’

REVIEW –  Visionary storyteller Tim Burton is back with an adaptation of “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children,” and as expected, it’s a fantastical fusion of the weird and the magical, but is it peculiar enough to appeal to both Burton fans and casual moviegoers?

“Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua tries his hand at an old school western in the form of this “Magnificent Seven” remake starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke and Vincent D’Onofrio. Is this take on a classic truly magnificent or is it merely adequate?

Also on this episode of Film Fanatics, Bruce Bennett and Adam Mast give you a look at the new documentary, “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week.”  Finally, your fearless hosts cap off a jam packed show with a special peek at “Drop Off,” a youthful, Lyman Dayton-directed adventure shot in Southern Utah.
