During Jake's second visit, when discussing the letter with Miss Peregrine in the kitchen, the radio broadcast in the background is a speech by Prime Minister Winston Churchill. He talks about "significant things" taking place in the alliance with Russia, the eventuality of an allied invasion of Europe, a eulogy of the Canadian war effort, and Italy's crumbling defenses. It was broadcast from Canada on August 31, 1943, and re-broadcast three days later, at noon, for the British Isles. This is consistent with the date of the loop in the movie: September 3, 1943.

Tim Burton does it again - he manages to create with passion and imagination a whole new world, for those of us who need new worlds. Thus if you love fantasy and dreams made serious and scary go see it in 3d because it's great. If you are more of an adult than the child within and you like films with linear plot and logic and exhaustive explanations you probably won't become a fan and that's OK too. Just don't rate it low just because it's not your type, a movie should be rated for what it was meant to be and for what the team behind it tried to accomplish. Watch the trailer, if you like it you'll probably love the film. It's worth mentioning that it is quite dark and scary so it's not for every child.
