Hugo update feed

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

"This was a re-watch. A tedious movie, yes. But a work of art."

" 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

" 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

A Complete review of Martin Scorsese's work (30 movies items)

" Cast : Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfield, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ray Winstone, Emily Mortimer, Christopher Lee, Jude Law What was it about? Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton. My two cents: 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 fun movie for kids in g"
