Martin Scorsese's 'Hugo': The holiday movie all critics are recommending

hugo-still.jpg "Hugo" is the newest movie from legendary director Martin Scorsese. This tale of Hugo, a an orphan boy living in the walls of a Paris railway station in the 1930s. He meets a cold man who runs a toy shop and gets caught up in a fantastical adventure.

It is certainly a departure from most Scorsese movies, but the critics are effusive in their praise.

Richard Roeper says, "One of the most magical viewing experiences of the decade so far."

Roger Ebert writes, "'Hugo' is unlike any other film Martin Scorsese has ever made, and yet possibly the closest to his heart: a big-budget, family epic in 3-D, and in some ways, a mirror of his own life."

The Orlando Sentinel's Roger Moore says, "A stunning exercise in 3D and a delightful celebration of Scorsese's lifelong love of the movies, something he, like Hugo, developed on childhood.

Peter Travers of Rolling Stone writes, "'Hugo' emerges as a spectacular adventure for film lovers of all ages.
