Why? You SHOULD HAVE seen it in theaters.

it almost seems like he accidentally left the word "not" out of that sentence, unless other theater-goers made it a lousy experience, which has happened a lot to me.

finally just watched it, although in 2D. i really enjoyed it, and loved how the magic of film was THEE theme of the picture (even after reading several critics pointing that out, i still wasn't sure what to expect). the film isn't quite up to par with Scorsese's masterpieces for me personally, but i wonder how i would have felt if i viewed the film in the 3D format that it was made for. oh well regardless, one of the most enjoyable movies of 2011 and more importantly, one that has deepened my love, admiration, and yes, knowledge for cinema.

I hope this movie is worth the 'Hype' as my wife had to go to two stores to find a 3D copy as my normal Best Buy never got the 3D version in stock and we were lucky that the clerk at one of my local Target stores was willing to hold it for you as it was their last 3D copy and two of my other local Target store were sold out... Will watch it either Wed or Thur night.

I got the last remaining copy of Hugo 3D at my locally wally world. Apparently people lined up until midnight for its release. I guess it was luck that there was one copy left. This would mark the first time we had a 3D movie sold out on the first day here.

As for the movie itself, I found the first half fascinating. It was adventurous, and the 3D really seemed to work to immerse you into the story. The second half of the movie, I thought was rather boring. It ended up being at least 30 minutes too long.

As far as the 3D, there were at least two scenes where the video was blurry. One of those scenes was when Hugo and his friend are in the hanging clock and drops his wrench. I had to remove my glasses and put them back on, just to make sure the battery wasn't dead. This must have been due to some type of artificial light filtering, to slightly dim the scene.

Lastly, the $54.99 list price is just outrageous for this movie and is more along the lines of something best buy would charge for their exclusives (ala final destination.)

On these counts, I would have probably given the video quality 4 1/2 stars, the movie itself 3 1/2 stars, and value 1 1/2 stars.

I really liked the movie (saw it in 3D in the theaters), but the reviewer is dead wrong in saying that "It will move, dazzle, and delight anyone who sees it". I think for many people, they'd find it kind of boring. Too childish for adults, and too slow for kids (especially the second half).
This movie is best seen by big time film buffs.

Agreed, this movie is touching to anyone who loves cinema. I felt much the same way watching The Artist. Fantastic movies for film fans, but probably not everyone would "get it".
