Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Hugo (2011)

Directed by Martin Scorsese

Starring Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfield, Chloƫ Grace Moretz


An homage to early cinema, and a nice rendition of 1930’s Paris, but for what? It’s more a slice of life than a story worth telling. Nice effects and lots of gliding camerawork, but there’s just not much to it.

Why do they have English accents? This isn’t Dickens.

Quite a departure for Scorsese.
