Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Wrapped up in a pretty but simple children's adventure movie is a stirring tribute to the early days of cinema, though it stumps too heavily for Scorsese's pet cause of film preservation. I was put off by the fake-looking CGI-ness of every shot, but the art design and sound design were incredible, especially in the meticulous gear works.

Evie Totty: “It ruled.”

This came out last year but I was able to see it On Demand. So yes, I actually paid the $4.99 or whatever it was to see it on my television.

I wish I'd been able to see it in it's intended 3D. This was an excellent love letter to film by Scorsese in my opinion.
