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 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.

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...
