    eh, HUGO hype is I think, because of the name Scorsese and nice visuals. Scorsese has always been a household name for movie buffs but for the mainstream crowd he may just sound like that "The Departed and other mafia 70s flicks dude"/

    I would say that in order to let the movie operate its full charm you have to either be a fan of the book or familiar with history of cinema/ Georges Melies. I am the latter myself; being an animator. But I fully understood the lack of appeal towards the audience outside the aforementioned group, unless you are really into the pretty cinematography and visual escapism (steampunk et al). My mom said it's boring and limp. Ha. Nice boots though.

    ^ Moon is fantastic. Speaking as a total SF nerd, it is one of my favorite movies of the last 5 years.

    Recent movie watching:

    Friends with Benefits. I found this surprisingly watchable - there are some genuinely funny bits, especially around gender stereotypes - Woody Harrelson was hilarious.

    Chinatown. Since it's been discussed so much lately, thought it was worth a revisit. This is one that is standing the test of time - great dialogue, great acting, just an overall perfect film.

    Blade Runner. I watched theatrical release for the first time in more than 15 years. It really made me appreciate the director's cut - I found the voice-over jarring, and felt like they wound up telling us things that it's better to figure out on our own, or be left as a mystery. The happy ending was weak too.

    I tried to watch blade runner once but I got bored and I was distracted playing a video game on my laptop or something. I really should watch it and eliminate any distractions to give it an honest go. Seems I'd like it given how much I love sci-fi.

    ^^

    I'll never understand the hype behind Red October. It was in no way a bad film, in fact I rather like the movie, I just don't understand why its "classic" status is so universal.
