How We Determine Our Grades

My 11 year old boy and 14 year old girl loved it. However we wanted to discuss the book and what the movie added, it was a bit confusing. The special effects were wonderful and we would have like even more aspects of France than it offered but we enjoyed what we saw. I did hear some younger children in the audience who must have been bored during the last sequences focused on film making history.

After reading all the movie critics’ reviews of “Hugo”, we decided to take eight boys to see it for my son’s birthday party.  All of the boys were highly bored by the movie.  The boys are all eight and nine year olds, and the movie just moved too slowly for them.  I wasn’t terribly interested in it myself.  My eleven-year-old daughter liked it.  One of the birthday guests had gone to the restroom several times.  When I asked him if he was okay, he said, “I’m just bored by the movie, and I want to move around so I don’t fall asleep.”  I think that says it all.
