Tell Me About Your Dreams... Hugo Movie Review
Movies are where dreams are made.... or something similar to that...
That was the conversation that stuck with me when watching the movie, Hugo.
I loved this movie. As soon as you watch it, you will know what I meant by that first line... and you will also see why I can say that I loved this movie.
The little boy that plays Hugo had me as a fan in Nanny McPhee Returns, so I was happy to see him as a main character again... This movie is different... I guess that is how to put it.
It is the story of Hugo. He lives in a train station ... Always having to run and hide from the inspector. (That part made me sad and it was really weird seeing Sasha Baron Cohen as that role.) This movie is all about gadgets... and belonging... Whether it is the mechanical piece that belongs in the item ... or the person belonging in the current situation. I can not say enough how much I really enjoyed this movie. Marc was right there with me and once it was over he even commented on how it was a good movie. Broxton would watch from time to time, but I felt like it was more of an attention grabber for older kids, not young ones like Broxton. I will warn you, I did feel as though it was a bit slow to get going, but once you were watching, you were sucked in and glued to your seat to see what would happen at the end.
Grab the popcorn and coke and make a movie night tonight with the whole family! I do not remember any profanity in this movie at all, so it is one that I really mean the whole family!
