"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" (2011)
I can not stress that enough! Movies based on books are rarely as amazing as the book itself! Movies show you what a specific person wanted to see, with books, you create the images for yourself, you get decide, you get to make it come alive for yourself. And there is nothing better.
