Flawed eye candy with messages

“"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."

With its PG rating, 2011's Hugo is the first Martin Scorsese project that could be considered a kids movie. However, it's not aimed specifically at children - this is a movie made by a lover of a cinema for lovers of cinema. While kids will likely be transfixed by Hugo's gorgeous visuals, the story's messages may be too cerebral and advanced for inexperienced minds. Meanwhile, older audiences and cinema aficionados will get the most out of this film, as they'll be able to comprehend the material laying underneath ” read more

Movies I've Seen In 3-D... (68 movies items)

"Viewed in Standard (non-IMAX) Cinema 3-D Hugo has received a lot of acclaim for its 3-D, and deservedly so. The effects look marvellous, and the gimmick is tied to the narrative's central messages. Great stuff."

""Georges" would have been an appropriate title, too. Just from the first shot I knew this was going to be a marvelous work, and it was. What I didn't know yet is that Georges Méliès has not just a brief part in the movie, like I expected, but he's one of the main characters and a key for the whole plot. Also, as it started I didn't know that this fucking movie would have made me cry twice (both times involving Méliès and his process of creating those dreamy and wondrous shorts I know so w"

Order I think the chances of a film winning Best P (9 movies items)

"Hugo gained the most nominations this year with 11 nominations. Some people may think they won't go with it because it's a kids film, but it's very visually well shot, and it also pays tribute to one of the greatest directors, not only of the silent era, but ever. Plus it's directed by Martin Scorcese. Don't count this one out. Chance of winning. 25%"

"Scorsese is the master in any genre. This is a very well told and uplifting story with great performances and a great use of 3D cinematography proving how the technology can enhance the enjoyment of a film if it is used correctly and Martin Scorsese, screenwriter John Logan (The Last Samurai, The Aviator and Rango), DOP Rob Richarson (The Aviator, Inglourious Basterds, Casino, and Shutter Island) and the entire cast ranging from newcomer Asa Butterfield who plays Hugo, Chloe Grace Moretz, Ben Ki"

Films I saw in 2012 (33 movies items)

" Hugo is a charming piece of entertaining and engaging cinema whose second half is misguided. If this film were nearly as warm and engaging as the first half, I would have regarded this as the perfect film. However, the message in the second half becomes overt and deviates from the charm and whimsy of the first half. It's unfortunate, but it's still worth watching. Saw on January 14th "

Best Films of 2011 (20 movies items)

"Leave it to Scorsese to make a family adventure/drama about a boy meeting an innovative french filmmaker during world war II. 'Hugo' maybe one of the most beautifully designed and photographed films of the year. Its use of 3D is smart and different from most of the films to use it prior. Scorsese really plays with depth and framing a lot more than many others (although I feel Tarsem did this too) and Robert Richardson's photography is superb. No dimming or anything. How much for kids it is per-"

My 2011 Favorites - by Xanadon't (44 movies items)

"The most elegant and visually masterful film of the year. Scorsese's love letter to cinema/masterpiece of film-making runs an extremely close second. It probably is the "best" or "most accomplished" film of the year, and falls only a railroad stitch shy of my favorite. "

SJMJ91 posted a review 3 years, 5 months ago

A new Martin Scorsese has been born.

“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 taken a vast turn towards almost the opposing genre to what he has previously worked on, he goes on to make yet another masterpiece that takes us on an absolutely magnificent journey about the history of films and expresses a whole new side to him that took us all so long to witness.

Ever since the re-birth of 3D that began with James Cameron’s Avatar, it has become a money-grubbing gim” read more
