Lost in Previews: The best of Martin Scorsese trailer/poll edition

Today (11/17) is Martin Scorsese’s birthday. It’s also just under a week away until the release of Scorsese’s latest Hugo, based on the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Hugo is noteworthy for a couple of reasons. The first being that it’s the first film Scorsese has shot in 3D. Say what you will about the technology, but when a cinematic icon like Scorse decides to give it a crack I’m down to see what the director has up his sleeve. It also marks the first time that Scorsese is making for what all intents and purposes appears to be a film for the entire family.

In honor of that we thought we’d have a little fun here at Lost in Reviews and do our first ever poll. What follows are trailers from most every major film Scorsese has done over the course of his career. It’s fascinating to watch these for several reasons. From the way trailers have changed in the way they are edited and presented over the last five decades of Scorsese’s career, to being able to spot actors that the director works with across multiple pictures. Give them each a view and then be sure to let us know which is your favorite in the poll at the bottom of the post. Note there are two polls for the first half 1970-1980 and then for 1990-current. Will post an update with the winner on the same day as Hugo‘s release on 11/23

About Lost in Reviews

Named after the 2003 film Lost in Translation, Lost in Reviews set out to embody the philosophy of this film in a website. Discouraged with the lack of passion in modern day criticism, founders Angela Davis and Ryan Davis created the entertainment review site in 2009. The idea being that, this would be the go-to place for people to find that something that was missing in their life through film or music.

Lost in Reviews is based in Kansas City, Dallas and Chicago. The site covers all aspects of entertainment, but tries to focus more on the easily over-looked. Lost in Reviews is the home to the starving filmmaker and indie bands everywhere. If you’re looking for a voice or trying to share in a vision, then Lost in Reviews just may be the place to help you get there. As the tag line for Lost in Translation says: “Everyone wants to be found.” So find yourself Lost in Reviews.
