Times Watched: 1
My Experience: A bit of a departure for Scorsese, Hugo is a stunning movie to watch at least once. The cinematography is gorgeous. The acting is also top-tier. I said this before, but with Asa Butterfield and Chloe Moretz this is the best collection of pre-pubescent acting I’ve ever seen. Ben Kingsley is a delight to watch as well. Unfortunately, the plot really dragged for me as it often does with the fantasy/automaton genre. The quality of the movie-making kept me engaged until the end, but I have no desire to see it again.
