This is a bit off-topic but any of you who love film as much as I do I would suggest checking out HUGO. It was NOT what I expected. I thought it was a kid's film, (though you can definitely bring your kids) with lots of CGI etc. And though the special effects are great, they are more along the line of creating fantastic environments then they are action sequences.
And if you enjoy history, especially the lessen known nooks & crannies this is for you as well. Without ruining it let's just say it unexpectedly gives you the birth of the art of film in the heart of turn of the century Paris in the context that allows you to fully appreciate its genesis for it's true beauty & creativity. And you learn somethings as well which I always enjoy.
It is a Marty Scorsese film (he appears in it for a second a la Hitchcock). You get the feeling that he has waited his whole career to tell this story. Being a consummate film maker himself he treats it like he is bringing a beloved book to life, (hence why I posted this here).
It stars 2 great kids plus Ben Kingsley, Jude Law, Christopher Lee & Sacha Cohen, (in a surprisingly well done comedic/dramatic role), as well as a few Harry Potter character actors floating around here & there. Enjoy, as it is a "good read" & an adventure...
