For those who missed it over the weekend, my review of the new movie Hugo: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] — A comment that I couldn't fit into the review is that I really admire how the script handled the station inspector's character. He could have been a cheapjack Disneyfied villain, and very nearly is, but at the end, even he is redeemed, with enough foreshadowing of his redemption for it to be believable. Also, I saw it in 3D, which was worth the effort.
