In Scorsese I trust.
I think that may be your hatred of children coming out. Though in all fairness the kid playing Hugo doesn't look like he's that great of an actor. I'm interested to see it because from everything I've heard it makes great use of 3D beyond thing popping out at you.
That freaky automaton is something I find oddly compelling. The entire world here is something that looks extremely visually interesting; just a really, really cool fantasy steampunk world. Very mysterious, and - dare I say - magical? Haven't seen anything genuinely magical on film in awhile -- usually, extremely bad, derivative sh** gets called out for being amazing, like Avatar.
This will probably be a very good "family movie". Martin Scorsese doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who would pump out garbage like the Smurfs in this sector.

Season one comes to a breathtaking conclusion, as the guys enter the final 5-day turkey weekend.
Trailer 2: Hugo
Scorsese's kid's film has been getting a lot of great reviews. Still looks kind of cloying to me, but what do I know?
Martin Scorsese makes a children's movie. In 3D. Could be wonderful, could be awful, but what do you think of the trailer?
