“Scorsese Shorts” (Criterion)

One of the best things I’ve seen in a very long time is Martin Scorsese’s “Italianamerican,” the centerpiece of five early shorts included on this Criterion release. For almost an hour, Scorsese sits down with his parents to talk about their families and growing up as children of immigrants. It is loving and beautiful, and it made me miss my Italian family in a way I can’t really put into words. This wonderful set also includes “American Boy,” “The Big Shave,” “It’s Not Just You, Murray!,” and “What’s a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This?” “Italianamerican” is my personal favorite but all five are worth seeing for any fan of one of the best filmmakers of all time, which really should be everyone who likes movies.

“Sonic the Hedgehog”

Again, this column is mostly made of highlights or recommendations, but times are a little strange. Sadly, “Sonic the Hedgehog” really comes apart in the middle, too reliant on dumb jokes and physical humor. But James Marsden does his best to hold it all together and almost pulls it off, even when Jim Carrey is trying to run away with it. Listen, this isn’t a great or even good movie, but it’s got bright colors and bad humor to keep the kids entertained. And it’s better than “Scoob!”
