Excerpt: I have no idea what the formal reviewer meant with regard to cross talk. I experienced no cross talk on my LG passive set. The film is beautifully rendered from start to finish. The 3D is integral, I think, to the experience. From beginning to end, the movie is pure cinema, and expertly crafted. I love the story. However, the film could use some better editing. Many of the shots, though beautiful to look at in 3D, are repetitive, and add nothing to the story.
Excerpt: Martin Scorsese's fantastic adaptation of the novel comes to live in blu-ray. This transfer (as far as video and audio quality goes) are reference quality. Extras didn't blow me away but they are sufficient. If you plan on adding this to your collection, it is, without a doubt, worth paying extra money for the blu-ray. You'll be glad you did.
Excerpt: Martin Scorsese created the world of Hugo with 3D in mind from the ground up. The only way you can really experience Hugo in the way he wanted you to is in 3D. There are 3D movies that you could pass on because maybe you see 3D as only a gimmick. There is no gimmick here. Scorsese uses 3D to immerse you into the world of Hugo as amazing as James Cameron was able to immerse you into Avatar with 3D. Every scene is filled with jaw dropping depth, and amazing cinematography.
Excerpt: Martin Scorsese is known for his surreal and potent crime dramas like ‘Goodfellas’, ‘Casino’ and ‘The Departed’ to name a few. He had dived deep into some intense character-dramas like ‘Shutter Island’, ‘Cape Fear’ and ‘Taxi Driver’. He’s even done some sparkling cinema spectacles such as ‘The Aviator’. He is a masterful filmmaker with immaculate craftsmanship and complex understanding of how movies should be made, with his own cinematic flair.
No matter how old you are... there's no denying it

Excerpt: Three years ago I read the book and I thought it would make a decent movie. A "decent" movie. Well, I was wrong without a doubt. I rented this movie on blu-ray and it was spectacular. There's nothing better than a really good story and outstanding picture quality (along with good CGI). And those of you who have seen it in 3D, I wonder if it could really be THAT much better than 2D? I bought this movie and it is definitely a movie for ANYbody (I'm a 16 yr old boy).
Excerpt: Hugo, our main character, forced to be living and surviving as orphan all by himself in what seems Le Guare de L'Est in Paris. But he won't be alone for long. There are good people accompanying him in his kind of David Copperfield-adventure. A little puppet, an automaton, in a way assists Hugo in his search for an answer to the universal question: "What is my purpose?". A great family movie we absolutely reccommend.
Excerpt: Just finished watching Hugo for the first time, and WOW! It is truly a 3D photography masterpiece that should be enjoyed by every 3D enthusiast out there. The 3D is visually strong, and a large portion of the foreground is usually set in negative parallax. Not only does the 3D provide jaw-dropping realism to the enormously complex environments through fantastic layering and camera placement, but it obviously heightens the emotional impact of events and characters in...
One of the few movies that all agree is of its greatness...

Excerpt: My girlfriend and I watched it last night. I had been waiting a while to watch this because I had missed it at the theaters. Anyway, my girlfriend and I enjoy watching 3D movies very much and especially when they are very good quality. For some reason or another, we do not get out that much to see "Real 3D" or "IMAX 3D" that much, but when we do, it is usually a very good movie that is currently playing. For instance, we went to watch Star Wars I in 3D.
