Hugo arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode. This transfer is beautifully detailed. Clarity is astonishing. Details far and wide -- whether in the train station or as seen in the overhead shots of Paris -- are spectacularly sharp and crisp. Close-up detailing is even more amazing. Not only are facial texture marvellous and clothing textures faultless, but the transfer's ability to capture and display the finest little nuances of worn gears, rusted metal, scuffed floors, and rough bricks is outstanding. The black levels appear naturally and deeply inky, with detail quality coming across with seriously impressive textural punch, and colour accuracy also well-defined. Simply a magnificent transfer. (5/5)


Hugo's DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack makes full use of the entire stage -- the extra two surround channels included -- to create a seamless sound field that creates with great clarity and attention to detail the Paris train station, the mechanical objects, and other niceties scattered throughout the picture. Music delivery is perfectly spaced and immersive, playing with superb clarity as each note floats effortlessly into the listening area. Dialogue is clear and accurate. Dynamic range is unbelievable, with tremendous fidelity. Another great soundtrack from Howard Shore, who should have won the Oscar for Best Original Score. (5/5)


This movie has a budget of $170 million, but so far to date, the gross receipt is only $106 million. (The Artist grossed even much less!) Losing the Best Picture Oscar to The Artist reminds me of the top grossing picture of all-time Avatar losing to The Hurt Locker in 2010.

One of my favorite Oscar moments a few years ago came when after a highly distinguished career, fellow directors Spielberg, Lucas, and Coppola finally presented Scorsese with his first and long overdue directing Oscar for The Departed.

Throughout an illustrious directing career, Scorsese has directed some of the most critically acclaimed movies ever made, such as Raging Bull, Cape Fear, Goodfellas, The Aviator, and many many more.

Not only is he a great director, he is also a tremendous movie scholar, responsible for keeping in circulation classic movies such as Thief of Bagdad, a 1941 masterpiece, which influenced him, Coppola and Lucas, and the classic Red Shoes by Powell and Pressburger.

In addition he lectures in University on the movies, and you can get his dvd A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies, which explores movies by well known directors of the past such as King Vidor, Fritz Lang, Cecil DeMille. Watching this made me realise the importance and contribution of the director.

Hugo leads the Academy award nominations list this year with 11 nominations, closely followed by The Artist with 10, Warhorse, The Descendants, Midnight in Paris, all outstanding movies. Nominations for Hugo include Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay.

As the movie begins, in one extended shot we zoom through a bustling Paris railway station in 1931, and you become instantly aware that this is no ordinary movie. We meet a 12 year old urchin named Hugo who lives there.

It feels to me like Shutter Island was a definitive time in Martin Scorsese's career. Not only did it mark the director's first tackle into a suspense/eerie story (if memory serves), but his following film, Hugo, sealed his decision to truly better himself by offering us something we've rarely seen before: childhood through his eyes.

Hugo is a real achievement. A film about film, one that would have deserved much more awards than this. The child actors give nuanced, even mature performances at times, the background, storyline and overall film truly mesmerize the senses. Having recently seen Méliès' "Voyage to the Moon", Hugo's distinct homage to cinema's first filmmaker made Martin Scorsese's picture all the more important. This passing of age story has action, acting, special effects, costumes, touching moments and many more for everyone to marvel at.

Sadly, the special features are quite short and consist only of a few featurettes that total a running time of 56 minutes. An insult to this great production, and to make matters worse, several of those featurettes are not that interesting, feeling more like an EPK material, which makes no sense given that you've already bought or rented the movie in the first place, so selling an already bought film... you know...

By Bernie TOP 500 REVIEWER on Nov. 29 2013
Format: Blu-ray
This is a unique combination of the way the story is told as an interweaving of a fictional protagonist to tell the story of a real life person. I have seen the formula of interweaving reality with a fictional character before; one of the most famous is "Sophie's World" by Jostein Gaarder.

Any way the basic story is of a child that loses his father and thinks that his father left him a message that will change his life. In the process of perusing the message he meets Georges Méliès who may just have a message to change the reader's life.

The book incorporated a lot of pictures to help tell the story. This is innovative and holds your attention. However it did not translate well into the film as the film was slow and dragged a lot in scenes and even dialog. They lost the continuity and purpose of the story by incorporating the station inspector story that was a minor part of the book. It was too slapstick. What was great graphics in the book translated in almost cartoonish graphics in the film. However they did an excellent presentation of how the original films were designed to show us the stuff that dreams were made of.

The flat screen version was well enough. The 3D graphics were sort of gimmicky sort of looking through a stereoscope; however they were several fields deep.

So we have some unnecessary story added and some slow dragging parts but in the end the feel of the original book shines through.
