If you worried that Martin Scorsese's Hugo would lose something in the translation from big screen to small, fear not--it still looks amazing, even if the screen you're watching it on is way smaller. No, the marvelous 3D isn't there, but the insightful well-done extras and the engaging movie itself make up for that. In case you missed it in theaters, here's the gist: an orphan in the '30s who is trying to unravel a mystery involving his father when he encounters filmmaker Georges Méliès, who tells him the story of how he came to make movies.
Extras: In news that will delight those of us who can't spend four hours digging into every making-of featurette, the bonus features here clock in at just about an hour and they're quite fascinating: Sasha Baron Cohen reveals he wanted to shoot his prosthetic leg at the audience in 3D (but was told no); there are a couple of neat featurettes on the history of automatons and the miniatures used in the locomotive crash sequence, and an in-depth look at the French filmmaker Méliès that you can't help but get into thanks to Scorsese's fast-talking enthusiasm for the subject. It's cool stuff that may leave you wanting even more.
