Recent Song On Play: In Your Atmosphere (Live in LA)- John Mayer

Movies are made as an escape of reality, a chance to make your own scenarios about life, but more than just a make believe. Someone even said that movies are the only reason why we believe in love. Maybe. Or maybe not. We can never know for sure. Love is one of the things in life we can never be sure of.

I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured if the entire world was one big machine... I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason.

- Hugo Cabret, HUGO.

Hugo is probably one of the movies you have to see this year, next to One Day, Ides Of March, Safe House, Dream House and wow... There's so many good movies this year, can't wait to get more where that came from! Hugo, despite the front poster and everything you've seen in the trailer, is definitely not a movie for kids. It's a very serious and long movie, not something kids under 15 would easily understand. The setting and soundtrack of the movie are such perfection, the cast was also just the right proportion. It is merely about an orphan that truly believed that he's worth more than just a repairman, because he truly believes that even though his life might seemed like it's going down; after his father's death and losing his chance of continuing education, he worked with what he have. A broken robot-like machine that was inherited by his deceased father and it made Hugo felt determined to fix it, but little did he know that he was actually meant for a much bigger purpose. Can't really spoil the whole movie, it's such a pleasant experience to witness an uplifting and positive movie by yourself. Haven't seen one of these in a while.

The past might make you who you are now, but it really is your choice if that's all you will ever want to be. It's about believing what you want to achieve, knowing your worth and giving yourself another shot even when life doesn't offer you a lot.
