I'm not sure what to think, it might turn into a fun looking movie.

I think there's some great production design going on though and some nice work from Richardson, I'd love to see how he handles 3d.

What's that gurgling sound I hear?

Ah yes, it'd be the sound made by millions of pounds' worth of British talent being siphoned off to the United States!

And no, I don't blame Hollywood for a moment. We could have made that film. We just chose not to.

We suck.

And when does principle photography start on that may I ask?

Last time I've heard from people involved with Bond 23, they were talking about November.
(So Deakins can shoot with the Alexa Studio) :rolleyes:

He damned near destroyed mine, since he looks like second-tier villain's thug from a Bondflick.

Of course the plotting in CASINO takes a lot of the blame too, but Craig's casting was just godawful. Being a good actor isn't enough for an iconic character, you gotta LOOK the part, not like you just lost an acid fight. Except for the ADD editing, QUANTUM did a lot to make up for CR's multi-misfires, but since Craig is still there, the movie is still like going into battle AFTER an arrow has already gone through your head -- there's only so much you can do.

But the rest of the crew on the new Bond sounds very solid; I was hoping to interview Deakins again (talked with him about O BROTHER and the criminally underrated THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE about a decade back), this time for a recent article on DPs advising feature animation efforts, but maybe he's too busy prepping Bond.

Back on topic, I talked to a couple of HUGO tech folks for a different article recently, and my impression from them is that the trailer is not wholly representative of the film, but more 'in your face' with its imagery, whereas the movie itself treats the depth with subtlety in an immersive manner. There's some large-scale miniature work that was all shot with Alexa in stereoscopic that I'm very excited to see, too.

Thanks for the link to the informative technical article. I think anyone who ever picked up a motion picture camera is going to enjoy seeing this movie, if only for the historical elements.

In the story of HUGO we find a character from real life, that weaves in a lot of true facts about Georges Milies, the inventor of much of what we enjoy about cinema today. He made over 500 film in less than twenty years and retired into near obscurity and destitution as the economics and aesthetics of the art solidified into an industry. He invented / discovered the substitution shot, the horror film and sci-fi genres, and was among the first to employ time lapse, dissolves, multiple exposures and other seemingly "magical" techniques, bending his knowledge of stage magic into the new medium. His most famous existing film is known in English a "A Trip to The Moon," and includes the shot of a capsule impacting with the face of "the man in the moon," which has become a staple of early cinema compilations.

The majority of his life's work, his films, were melted down to make boot heels for the French Army during World War One. Like D.W. Griffith after him, the parade passed him by as studios emerged to make a newer, modern cinema on the backs of his early and un-replacable achievements, leaving him to a life of poverty until, in Milies' case, fellow film makers acted to intervene. Griffith simply died in a one room rental on Gower Street, a forgotten man in the city he put on the world's maps - Hollywood.

No doubt Scorsese will weave these ironies and the importance for film preservation into the plot of the film. On top of all that, we have an award winning children's book as the source material, the work of cinematographer Robert Richardson and production designer Dante Ferretti, along with editor Thelma Schoonmaker and the assembled team they lead in bringing this material to the screen in 3D. Me? I'll be there on opening day with my entire family.

Just got back from seeing it, thought it was fantastic.

I wasn't massively keen on the 3D at times, whilst overall it worked very well, there were points where it just got uncomfortable.

I thought the acting and scripting was great though.

Certainly one of the better films I've seen in the cinema recently.


EDIT: Watch the film before judging it. That trailer is pretty awefull.

The budget was quite big on it though, it will probably make it's money in the international European market.

I thought it would turn into a good movie, I'm looking forward to seeing it. I always thoroughly enjoy Scorsese.

I quite enjoyed this film. I think it is more for film buffs, though it seems like it would be a kids' movie. The 3D was well done, though probably not integral to the viewing experience. A few times I took the glasses on and off and noticed that the glasses added a slight green tinge to the image (besides the usual dulling effect), which was unfortunate.

I remember watching Melies' films in college and being blown away by how inventive they were, especially for that time. I can only imagine what audiences at the turn of the century thought when they saw these films.

Never though Scorsese would make a Kiddies Movie. Like Tarantino making a Muppet movie.
