This is the first post of a new category here on Books, Bones & Buffy, where I am going to recommend movies that have been successfully translated from some of my favorite books. You may not realize it from reading this blog, but I love movies almost as much as I love books, which means I love good movies. Just released this past Wednesday is Hugo, directed by Martin Scorsese, and based on the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. I recently reviewed Selznick’s latest, Wonderstruck, and I suspect it’s no coincidence that the movie has been released right on the heals of its publication. Although I haven’t seen it yet, Hugo got rave reviews from my friend Wendy, not to mention a great rating from Entertainment Weekly, so I’m very excited to see it.
I also have to mention that Jude Law is in the movie, whom I love, and Chloë Grace Moretz, from Kickass, who is just amazing. The movie is in 3D (only, I believe) so get ready to pay a little extra for the ticket. Hopefully, it will be worth it.
Here’s the trailer:
See you at the movies!
