Don't take this personally, I just like to think that there are no boring movies, just boring viewers who don't know how to watch them.

Hugo is in a way a lot like a Jacques Tati film in that it requires certain active participation from the audience. Especially when it comes to its use of 3D (best since Avatar) where you often have several planes of simultaneous actions that you can focus on in one shot (especially at the railroad station scenes). It's kind of similar to Play Time where you have to find your own gags to amuse yourself. I think Hugo, among other things, updates this concept by using new technology.

Then you have all the loving movie references/references to historical persons/events; the numerous themes the movie employs, like the relationship between humans, machines and film - there's so much to think about.

Very well said. Haven't enjoyed a movie so much in recent memory. So much depth... And Sasha Barron Cohen's phone convos were great comic relief. Amazing flick

Reviews are not very re-assuring. 2001, Solaris, stalker - all referenced to this movie - hated them all, e.g. not my cup o tea.

I agree that Hugo was fantastic. Quite glad I finally got around to seeing it in theaters this past week. If the best picture oscar is a toss up between that and the artist I really think Hugo ought to take it.

tinker tailor soldier spy was good as-- Not confusing or complicated, which I was expecting from reviews etc; I quite liked the pacing of it too, how they would kinda have the climax of an event, THEN explain it (rather than every side-plot building to a climax as per usual); it was a nice technique and kept you going "wtf just happened?? Ohhhh, I got ya"

Real Steel was sooo shit

Watched J. Edgar too- Very good! I really can't believe Clint Eastwood; who would've guessed he'd turn into such an ingenious filmaker (I know he's been awesome for a while now, but every new movie I'm still shocked haha)!? I'm not sure how well it'll go down in general; it was really a character film (like ENTIRELY!), and I liked that, but I could see some people not getting into it that much... Content aside I thought the technical side was really interesting and great. The way it cut between times, and events was just amazing; it never felt overdone, or forced, and was always fluid and felt right. I think that's rare for films that do jump around between times and events...

Anyway bruvs, I got the hottest recommendation ever for you: Attack the Block!
I fuckin lol'd for 90 mins straight and was thoroughly entertained, too.

This could very well be the best movie of 2011. Yes fags, it beats Poetry and Melancholia and The Artist and Pariah and Hugo and that overrated crap Drive by a mile.


like a hipster, i recommended this ..... 6 months ago! got to dig deep in the thread. it's buried somewhere. the movie is one of my top 10 favorites of 2011. Great film.

after watching super 8, I feel it's not much of a science fiction, but more of a family drama flick chronicling the broken relationships of suburban families, and Abrams uses science fiction as a hook to mend those relationships.

Yeah, typical hipster. "I knew about it first."

From what I can think of now 2011 is all about 13 Assassins and Attack the Block. Maybe I'm forgetting something or didn't see something yet, but those two are clearly above everything else.

Dude, 13 Assassins was so fucking good. Brilliant piece of film-making.

I always enjoy foreign films more than domestic made films. Well, Bon Cop Bad Cop was also pretty funny for a Canadian made/based film. There are a few exceptions, but more often than not I will watch a foreign film over a domestic film any day of the week.

*edit: by domestic I mean USA, ha.
