About this deal

It's been years since I sat down to 'Home Alone,' having avoided any television broadcast, as well as the home video releases ever since the VHS copy from my childhood.

As a new father, it's wild to realize I was 8 years old when my parents took me to see this at the theater over Thanksgiving - and then for the next several weekends after. Facial features, though, lack any real definition or sharpness, with stubble blurring lightly, and no real character being visible on any visage. As Home Alone celebrates its 30th Anniversary, it's now getting a grand upgrade to 4K UHD Blu-ray from Disney. The audio side of the coin gives two options for the natural English track: a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5. I couldn't help but laugh at how amazingly horrendous the Thai dub was, as every Thai spot was sheer hilarity, for all the wrong reasons.Still, there's just something about 'Home Alone' that transcends genre and taste, and is accessible to anyone, no matter how large or open their heart is. Kid-friendly humour and excellent performances throughout (even a cameo by the late, great John Candy). The film's perfect blend of humor, warmth, and holiday spirit makes it a perennial favorite, and even after watching it 50 times, the charm and excitement remain as fresh as ever. Mac Cam: Behind the Scenes with Macaulay Culkin (SD, 4 min) - A feature of young Culkin wandering around the set filming. He's forced to grow a little after being accidentally left behind when his folks and siblings fly off to Paris.

Home Alone' (actually Fox) is up to its usual pranks on Blu-ray, even 19 years later, with an AVC MPEG-4 encode (1080P, in the 1. Home Alone is not just a movie; it's a nostalgic journey that continues to leave a lasting imprint on the hearts of audiences, young and old. The next morning, due to a mishap, his family leaves for France without him, leaving the eight year old with a large house all to himself. On the evening before his family leave for their Christmas break to Paris, Kevin is banished to his room for misbehaving by his mother Kate (Catherine O'Hara).

The original Blu-ray and previous home video releases were always nice and bright and colorful, but now there's a feeling of warmth to the colors that are befitting of a holiday movie.

His family (and extended family, and extended extended family) is getting ready for a trip to France when Kevin creates a scene, and is banished to the attic for the night, wishing his family would just disappear.Skin tones occasionally fluctuate, giving off a rosy feel, but for the most part they're acceptable. Years ago I made a mashup trailer where I turned him into the killer from Red Dragon - but the Rambo meme is just as funny. The 4K disc loads to Disney's usual structured Language sub-menu and then lets you proceed right to the movie or to a static image main menu. Updated daily and in real-time, we track all high-def disc news and release dates, and review the latest disc titles.

A timeless comedy which still makes me laugh, never dates, and you can safely show your children, and in the future any grand children. And I'm certainly not a fan of watching characters discover true meanings of life or family or giving or friendship around the holidays.

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? but I lumped the film in the holiday genre, thinking it had little replay value due to the ever present "message" being preached throughout. Other than that everything looks pretty damn good offering a notable overall visual improvement over the previous Blu-ray release.
