Hugo is an overstuffed candy-box film of the type that some people really, really like. And if you add “A Martin Scorsese Confection” to the tag, everybody’s over the moon with how unexpected it is, this gift to mankind that’s so creamy and delicious and deep.

I didn’t like it much, myself, but then people say I’m not very nice when it comes to films. And this is one of those super-nice films. Nice nice nice. Even the meanest characters turn out to be nice, or else they conveniently go away early on and die in the snow. It’s very nice snow!
