This is a must for any family, what a great film. Join Kevin after he is left home alone and see how he defends his home against two great would be burglars. But this time they have definately met more than their match.
Loads of action and loads of fun.
Oh and next time you leave the house, make sure you've got everything!!!

If you're sat at home on a gloomy October afternoon with nothing to do, and it's raining outside and you just can't wait any longer for christmas to come around, then this is the film for you!
Macauly Culkin plays the cutest little boy who finds himself 'home alone' at christmas, and does all the things any normal kid would only ever dream of!
This film puts you into full-on christmas mode and can lift any negative feeling that christmas is still miles off!

Ok now we have all seen Home Alone, Who hasn't? I don't think anyone hasn't, its on the Tv every year at Christmas. I have Dvd's but I decided I wanted to try the Bluray and I was expecting bad quality just like a Dvd look or something. I was Amazed at the Sound Quality and the Picture was so Hi-Defination not as Hi-Def as newer films, but they have made a Fantastic Bluray version of this. So anyone wanting to watch this and remember the wonderful Home Alone, Watch it in Hi-Def its fantastic, Well worth the money!

Just want Home Alone - Lost In New York (Bluray) Whens it Released in UK????

The film is very good and in my opinion, the best one out of the lot. As you may know, it is about an eight-year-old boy, Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) who is accidentally left home alone when his family rush off to France for Christmas. He has to defend his house when two cat burglars, Harry and Marv (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, respectively) try to break in and hilarity ensues as Kevin sets a ton of booby traps around the house.
The picture quality is wonderful, a real step up from the DVD release. The film on Blu-Ray is 1080p HD and 1.85:1 aspect ratio (16:9).
The special features are excellent and not just a trailer or three, as with the DVD releases. There is the `Angels with Filthy Souls' featurette from the film but as a proper clip. This appears to be slightly different from the version shown in the film but good nonetheless. The deleted scenes are also very good and some of them should have, in my opinion, been left in the film as they are that good. There is also a `Making of Home Alone' feature which is very interesting and gives a real insight into the production of the movie. There are many more special features, all of which are very well done.
My only complaint is none of the special features are in HD, not even the aforementioned deleted scenes but you can't blame them really as many of them weren't made that way, such as the making of the film and a press featurette from 1990.

So, all in all, it is a great release, the movie is good and there are plenty of good special features to keep you occupied. A worthwhile buy and plenty of value for money.

If you havn't seen this film I strongley reccommend you do. It's full of laughs and fun from start to finish. Brilliant acting from Culkin,Pesci and Stern. An excellent way to spend a Saturday night in December. On the sofa watching this film and you can't get through Christmas without seeing it at least once.

With plenty of silly moments and wonderfully funny set pieces, courtesy of the famous booby-trapped finale, this delivers lots of heart in a story full of witty and charming moments. It made an international star out of Macaulay Culkin, and it's easy to see why at just 8 years old. He delivers everything you’d expect from a little one home alone; joy, sadness, fear, confidence and pride.

Coupled with fine support from Catherine O'Hara and John Heard as Kevin's parents, who head the family and their chaotic race back to America, this is a wonderfully family orientated film. From spending too much time together, from NOT spending enough time together and then bickering, laughing, fighting and valuing each other, this film has it all which we identify straight away from the opening scene. The chaotic family Christmas is made more relevant and easy to slip right into the frantic world of the McCallisters.

When the jokes and mad-cap fun and games of being home alone settle, we have some really nice tender moments seeing how scary the world can be for a child who has to learn to grow up far sooner than they should. Branded as a shop-lifter by accident, learning to conquer the fear of his basement and navigating a supermarket are all shown here in a nice way, but Culkin and the others convey a real sense of isolation and sadness away from the joy of the season that heightens how much family is important at this time of year.

BUT Kevin has much more time to raise smiles with his cheeky ways at fending off the ‘Wet Bandits’ time and time again, and his inner-monologues as he discovers adult pleasures such as eating as much junk food as you want, looking at nude Playboy pinups and using Dads aftershave are also a relatable sight!
