Watched Hugo (in 3D) last night, and thought I’d post some impressions.
This is an amazing movie, probably in my top 20 (possibly top 10, hasn’t gelled into a position yet), and worth seeing in 3D. While the cinematic magic is a treat to behold, it is all in service to the story, and boy, is this one hell of a story. The tale of a young boy trying to find his place in the world is moving, and the actors all give wonderful performances to bring it to life.
Highly recommend seeing this one (catch it before the Oscar’s, it’s nominated for 11); this is Scorsese at his best.
