‘Hugo’ is Martin Scorsese’s love letter to the cinema.
Drama Phil Bacharach
Martin Scorsese loves movies. Anyone familiar with the director of
“Raging Bull” and “The Departed” knows he worships at the altar of film.
It’s not surprising, therefore, that Scorsese would make a love letter
to the art form in which he immersed himself from his days as a sickly
child growing up on New York’s mean streets.
Thriller Rod Lott
Director Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion" is a super-smart speculative
thriller that isn't quite what you'd expect. The trailer kind of
telegraphs as much by killing off Gwyneth Paltrow.
Action Rod Lott
Robert Downey Jr. reprises his other franchise role — the Golden Globe-winning one — as popular culture's arguably most popular detective of all time in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
To shortcut things, whatever you thought of Downey's first go-round in
2009, you're likely to have the same feelings about this 2011 sequel.
