can someone explain to me what the fuss was all about. Did they not want Martin to be embarrassed so they enervated a lot of hoopla?

The Oscars have been pretty much the "anti-popular" (or "good" for many of them) awards. I haven't agreed with much of the "Academy" for years...

Enervated? I meant generated. The movie wasn't terrible, just average.

Shutter Island on the other hand.... I loved. But not the first viewing. The real genius of Shutter Island emerges during the second viewing.

I liked Shutter Island as well.

I went to see Hugo in 3D to see how well the 3D poloarized projection worked and also because I was always fascinated as a kid with early movie technology. Hugo is visually quite stunning and charming in its recreation of early movie-making a la Lumiere brothers, etc. From my ideal seat in the theater, the 3D worked well, certainly enhancing the visual illusion but it doesn't do anything for the story line.

It's basically a children's movie but certainly enjoyable for any age. It seemed to move very slowly. I think its running time is a couple of hours but it felt like it was 3 hours long.

Hugo 3D on bluray has really good reviews for 3D video quality. I was thinking of picking it up but not sure if I'll enjoy the movie or not. It is available for rent in 3D from a video store down the street so I may go that route.

I have nothing to contribute, but this makes my name appear on the first 5 Topics instead of just the first 4.

Read the rave reviews, ran to our huge screen 3D theater and was so angry at myself for taking reviews from the lamestreet media seriously. Nice 3D, infantile movie. Puerile, saccharine, and shallow. Save your money and time

But you didn't say whether or not you liked it!
