I am an unapologetic movie nut; always have been. Since I watch so many movies I now believe (mistakingly perhaps) that I know quality when I see it. Of course “opinions are like…..” and who am I to separate the good from the bad? Am I not the same person who still laughs hysterically at “Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment” despite having seen it in excess of 30 times? I can’t deny that I enjoy the low brow stuff every now then. It’s not unlike a health fanatic who craves a McDowell’s meal. The point is, I think I am pretty open minded when it comes to movies; if I like something, I like it.
“HUGO,” by Martin Scorsese, was my #1 film of 2011. My friend Jared suggested we go see it and I walked into the theater without having any preconceptions, which is hard to do these days, because lengthy previews are awaiting around every corner. With that in mind, I am not going to tell you anything about it, except that I found it moving. I don’t say this about a lot of movies, so if you get a chance to see “HUGO,” especially in the theater, please do; it will be worth your while.
