It’s no secret I’m not the world’s biggest fan of Martin Scorsese’s Hugo. I despised it so much I even put it on my Worst Films of 2011 list. I am genuinely interested in how all films are made though, even the ones I consider bad, and have a new respect for the film after watching The Magic of Hugo, a video featurette¬†Paramount released this week to celebrate the 11 Oscar nominations the film received. Watch the featurette below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
