Home Alone is the highly successful and beloved family comedy about a young boy named Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) who is accidentally left behind when his family takes off for a vacation in France over the holiday season. Once he realizes they've left him "home alone," he learns to fend for himself and, eventually has to protect his house against two bumbling burglars (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) who are planning to rob every house in Kevin's suburban Chicago neighborhood. Though the film's slapstick ending may be somewhat violent, Culkin's charming presence helped the film become one of the most successful ever at the time of its release.~Stephen Thomas Erlewine
I was simply blown away by how warm, rich and robust the color and lighting in this 4K UHD disc release of Home Alone was. Additionally, the fine grain structure and fullness of the image made everything seem more solid, larger than life, and with more depth than ever before.
Couldn't ask for better. Some of the finest work on a Fox classic release via Disney. Don't hesitate to have this one in your library for Christmas. A huge upgrade over previous formats and masters.
Home alone has to be one of the best and funniest films ever made! for 3 reasons.
A. Its a Family Christmas Movie with Macaulay Culkin!
2. Angels with Filthy souls is a hilarious scene
D. 20th Century Fox made this film!
-That's how Buzz counts to 3
This is a holiday classic that any physical media collector would love to add to their collection. I was skeptical on how good this movie could look with it being as old as it is, but it looks fantastic in 4k.
Using an LG OLED tv with a Panasonic UB820 4K player, you can really get a fantastic experience with this release. Colors pop real well, and I enjoyed watching the movie all over again. I noticed a lot of things in the background of certain scenes I had never noticed before. Great release!
Home Alone is a nostalgic holiday classic. It's become a generational favorite as the kids that first saw this movie in theaters now have kids and are introducing it to their brood. With the fun mix of child-focused comedy hijinks and the playful game performances from participants like Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern make this movie. Every kid wanted to be left home alone after this movie - at least I did - because who wouldn't want to have the run of the house and do whatever they wanted? As Home Alone celebrates its 30th Anniversary, it's now getting a grand upgrade to 4K UHD Blu-ray from Disney. The new transfer offers a notable improvement over previous releases, but without a new audio mix or any new bonus features, it may be a tough sell for those who already have bought this title countless times over the decades. However, if you're itching for a new 4K disc this holiday season, you should be happy with the results. Recommended.
I genuinely enjoy Home Alone because of its unique plot and the character development that takes place especially with Kevin for in the beginning he starts off as a whiny, ungrateful, and a very dependent child an example of this is when he is clueless on how to pack for the trip and when he said that he doesn’t want to see his family he ends up being very smart with his traps and independent as well as grateful to see his family I think this plot is an eye opener for people who are materialistic and it shows the the true meaning of Christmas (for this who celebrate it) is family. The humor in this is incredible as well since it’s a holiday movie that gets played about twice a year (when I watch it with my family and when I watch it alone) the jokes never get old. Considering that Macaulay Culkin was around 9 or 10 years old when filming his performance in this is really great for his age so was the rest of the casts. With that being said I give this movie a 4.5 it’s not a four because it’s better than that idk how to explain it but it’s also not a five for me.
