Since I kept hearing some great things about this flick and since I have always been a huge fan of Martin Scorsese’s work, I was really eager to check this flick and I had some rather high expectations. Basically, after making all those gangsters flicks, Scorsese decided to make for the first time a 'family' feature but, to be honest, in contrary to what most of the critics and viewers seemed to thing, I wasn't exactly blown away by the whole thing. First of all, to be honest, I don't think it was really a appealing movie for the kids in general. I mean, it was not fun at all even rather sad and all the movie references were just way too high-brow for the young viewers (even most of the adults won't have any clue about who is George Méliès). Furthermore, even though the story was entertaining, it was still nothing really amazing. Still, it is a really gorgeous movie and one of the very few movies I have seen where the 3D provided some actual added value and it was also a really sweet love letter to the history of motion pictures. To conclude, even though I enjoyed the damned thin, in my opinion, it was still a minor effort for Martin Scorsese but, still, a minor Scorsese is always better than all the garbage you can see nowadays.
