"I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason."

After making all those gangsters flicks, Scorsese decided to make for the first time a 'familly' feature. Honestly, in contrary to most of the critics and viewers, I wasn't exactly blown away by the whole thing. I mean, first of all, I don't think it is really a funny movie for kids in general. It is not really fun even rather sad and all the cinéma references are way too high-brow for young view... read more

Throughout his 30+ year career as a film director, Martin Scorsese has gone on to make feature films that have become some of the most violent and sinister crime films in the history of cinema from the likes of Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Departed and Cape Fear. However, in 2011 he makes something entirely different that is beyond anything that he has ever done, and although he has t... read more

Hugo is an orphan boy living in the walls of a train station in 1930s Paris. He learned to fix clocks and other gadgets from his father and uncle which he puts to use keeping the train station clocks running. The only thing that he has left that connects him to his dead father is an automaton that doesn't work without a special key.

Visually Stunning.

“Hugo is the result of too many things, one of them is Martin Scorsese trying to take a break from the gangs and the violence to present a family movie, another thing is that, he was trying to get into visuals and 3D to "cope" with the modern cinema.

The movie is highly enjoyable, with very interesting story, a story that develops slow but end up being mind-blowing, the movie is highly underrated, in fact, it bombed at the box office, and never received the recognition it deserves, mainly, the idea of a family movie directed by Martin Scorsese doesn't sound appealing, but people are forgetting that Martin Scorsese is a masterful film maker, a guy who would get into any type of movie and make it good.

BUT, Martin Scorsese took the idea of a family movie too far, he tried ” read more

“Forget the naysayers wanting the Scorsese of Taxi Driver, Goodfellas and Raging Bull: Hugo is absolute delight! So rich in its settings and details, so magical in its use of 3-D technology, so loving of cinema, so noble in its soul: a film Scorsese was born to make.” read more

Watch 'Hugo' because it's a masterpiece

“'Hugo' is set in 1931 and in a train station in France where a 12 year old orphan lives named Hugo (Asa Butterfield) who has to survive by stealing croissants, when an owner of a toy booth (Ben Kingsley) finds out he's been stealing, Hugo soon meets his god-daughter Isabelle (Chloe Grace Moretz) but if Hugo is caught by the Station Inspector (Sacha Baron Cohen), he'll go to the orphanage

While the story is great, most adults may know who Ben Kingsley is but probably not who George Melies is, but we soon learn some things about George Melies and the first movies

George Melies directed 'A Trip To The Moon' a 9 to 18 minute movie in which a rocket flies into the eye of the man in the moon, but don't watch 'Hugo' just to see that, watch 'Hugo' because it's a masterpiece bec” read more

Hugo Triumphant

“Hugo is pure enchantment that recalls to mind (at least for me) such films as Pan's Labyrinth, Time Bandits and Stardust; each, though very different, all possess a magical aspect to them that transcends the averaged movie. There is also an infusion of Dickens here that one would have to be blind to miss. I truly wish that I'd had the chance to see this film in theatres instead of at home and I fear that because of that I have missed some of it's grandeur. Should it ever again return to the big screen I shall make a point not to miss it again.

This was a film filled with surprises for me, though not the usual kind. Hugo's aspect is grand, equally both bright and dark, and mesmerizing; I truly felt as if under a spell the entire time. Yet the surprises I speak of are something els” read more

" Came to theaters at the beginning of the year here in Holland. A wonderful film by Martin Scorsese! The film was primarily a visual spectacle. Nice to learn something about the history of movies. 7.5/10"

Hugo

“Now, I normally don’t care for 3D films. I find the third dimension to be an unnecessary distraction from the proceedings, an extra bell or whistle added to most action movies to distract the viewer from the inane plot, lousy dialog and poor characterization. But the 3D in Hugo, while still slightly unnecessary for me, did add a certain quality to the layout of scenes. It seemed as if some care and thought had gone in to decide how to use the medium and produce a more integrated result.

But we’re also talking about a film which blares something that for me is an automatic indicator of quality: “Directed by Martin Scorsese.” Scorsese is a virtuoso, a master of his chosen craft, an artiste with an expansive, rich filmic vocabulary. The opening sequence is a cinematic gambit” read more

Best movies of 2011 (35 movies items)

" It's just so elegant and heartfelt, so technical yet effortless. And it's wonderfully moving in the way it oozes with an unbridled passion and appreciation for the magic of cinema. And yet, Scorsese's love for the medium is truly given over to his characters and their story in a way that this year's Best Picture winner never achieves. Another thing that's occurred to me, is that part of my excitement for the film has to do with the fact that I'm still able to find a real appreciation for som"

"First viewing - Nov. 30th So rather than end the month by knocking out one or two more expiring Netflix films, I decided I'd rather watch Hugo which just joined instant. And I'm very glad I did. It's a visual feast & a wonderful celebration of imagination and purpose that I found myself enjoying more than any other film of Scorsese's I've seen. As a love letter to cinema it also excels, though it's possible I got more out of it since I watched A Trip to the Moon earlier this year. There's a war"

“I'm going to be very honest at first I did think I was going to find this boring, don't hate me. But when I went to see it in cinemas in November 2012 (I know a year later but it was the best thing I ever could have done plus the tickets were free to see it lol). But how wrong was I, It was not boring at all in fact it is now after just one viewing at number one because it is visually a beautiful masterpiece made by a director I had never seen a film from before. But this film was perfect, The whole cast as well. Plus it'a at 1 because the lead actor actually nearly made me cry I nearly did cry but if I watch it again I probably would cry this time around. This is the first film that has also ever made me want to cry as well, I don't know why but I guess with the main actor I had an emotio” read more
