Random Sauces From All Around The World


Hugo Movie

Hugo is an orphan boy living in the walls of a train station in 1930s Paris. He learned to fix clocks and other gadgets from his father and uncle which he puts to use keeping the train station clocks running. The only thing that he has left that connects him to his dead father is an automaton (mechanical man) that doesn’t work without a special key which Hugo needs to find to unlock the secret he believes it contains. On his adventures, he meets with a shopkeeper, George Melies, who works in the train station and his adventure-seeking god-daughter. Hugo finds that they have a surprising connection to his father and the automaton, and he discovers it unlocks some memories the old man has buried inside regarding his past. Written by napierslogs

I love the pictures, the stories, the sound, the characters, well… almost everything. Though not that touching, from the start I have been amazed by the gears in the clock tower, the situation in the train stations, the little addition of small love stories, unique characters, and even by the accent and vocabulary. This movie shows a little from engineering side, movie’s history (though I am not sure whether it is factual or not – but it does show how movies have developed), and how somebody can help change others life (between Rene Tabard, Hugo Cabret, and Georges Méliès).

I think Hugo does deserve the score 7.9 in IMDb. Not like this boring movie I watched last week; the score should have been much more lower. Ehem, I should not stray too much from the topic hehe. So yeah I think what I spent to watch this in the theater worth the money 🙂 Definitely one of the best movies I have seen lately!

Have you watched it?
