Excellent. This was actually one of my most anticipated movies of the year, but I was disappointed when I saw the trailer. I still have alot of hope for it.

If ya can't believe in Marty Scorcese who can you believe in? Never seen a bad Scorcese film they're all just different degree's of brilliant.

What's up with 3 really good family movies all coming out in the same weekend? The Muppets are going to make this Arthur Christmas bomb at the box office.

It's thanksgiving so Hollywood is hoping their's room for all three. While Muppets will keep the other two from being big hits, they should do fine. Arthur Christmas will probably do well throughout the Holidays. Hugo will get some traction from likely Oscar nominations.

The first two reviews are a relief. I found the trailer underwhelming so this is good news.

Interested in Scorsese's first film for all ages, apparently conjoining old and new styles of film-making. Looks overwhelmingly good.

Probably the most painfully boring movie I've seen this year. Visually stunning, dramatically lacking in anything remotely worth caring about. Worst of all, this movie was marketed as a "children's movie", which is most definitely is not.

Find me a 9-year old whose interested in George Mayonnaise or whatever his name was and I'll eat my shorts.

Well, it's a movie about movies. You don't care about movies?
