REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

2.5 of 4

“..you might start to wish that resourceful Hugo could make your timepiece move faster, but then the second hour kicks in, and so does the magic Scorsese has been struggling to keep aloft..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
3 of 4

“..was something like a doctoral examination mixed with a full-body scan: It's his first film in 3-D, it's arguably his first for and/or about children, and it's one that made him rethink . . . well, everything..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]
Review rate : A-

“..the movie is replete of ironies, contradictions, paradoxes, and richly dense in cinematic allusions..”
by Emanuel Levy [EmanuelLevy.Com]
3.5 of 4

“..the manner in which the film blends the tale of an imperiled boy and the history of cinema makes for an ambitious and fanciful ride..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
4 of 4

“..the luxuriously romantic side of Scorsese's own work, where he wants audiences to become lost in the screen..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
5 of 5

“..one of the least cynical films of this or any other year. Show it a little faith, and show a little faith in the children in your life, and maybe they'll both surprise you..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..maybe it shouldn't surprise us that "Hugo," which is supposed to be about a likable orphaned scamp, is in fact a movie about an aged moviemaker, film preservation and repairing busted things..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
5 of 5

“..it will fall to adults to explain how rare and marvelous it is to actually find such a work of art..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
3 of 4

“..it is lovely. And there's something to be said for loveliness, and something to be said for the loveliness that can be realized on a screen. As they say in Hugo, movies have "the power to capture dreams"..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..a work of great imagination indeed..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
3.5 of 4

“..a smart movie, but it also has heart. Those with a passion for early cinema are likely to adore it, although a knowledge of and appreciation for Melies is not requisite to enjoy Scorsese's loving homage..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“.."Hugo" flagrantly defies the mind-numbing quality of most contempo kidpics and instead rewards patience, intellectual curiosity and a budding interest in cinema itself..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

GONE GIRL :

“..expertly crafted entertainment, but falls short of Fincher's finest..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

“.."This Is Where I Leave You" leaves them all to their own devices. If they had a reunion free of this overwritten and clunkily directed movie, that would be worth going to..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON :

“..intimate and affectionate..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

FORT BLISS :

“..writer-director Claudia Myers presents us with an unflinching and complex character study of an imperfect woman juggling motherhood..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

“..even with appearances by such dependable performers as Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer and Jean Reno, the interminable "Hector and the Search for Happiness" will most likely inspire audiences to search for the exit door..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

RECLAIM :

“..a truly bonkers Z-grade thriller..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
