Let me start off by saying that I love Martin Scorsese's "Hugo." It's the perfect blend of "Amelie" and "The Sandlot" and "Cinema Paradiso" and the spirits of Charles Dickens and Jules Verne and of course the works of George Méliès and the rest of film's origins. But there is one little problem I have with the movie, and it's hard to make a fuss about it but when a movie is this wonderful the seemingly minor negative elements taunt you until you get them out in the open. So this discussion is a real necessity for me as a fan of this film and cinema in general. I'm not trying to be a complaining jerk about it. I swear.

What is it about movie parodies and fast food? Okay, maybe it's only been the "Twilight" with cheeseburgers video and the literally titled "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" cartoon and the Martin Scorsese parody "Fast Food" and the many obvious Ronald McDonald-based "The Dark Knight" spoofs and now this, a remake of the "Drive" trailer in which the film revolves around drive thru restaurants. It's called "Drive Thru."
