A great Christmas movie that can be watched at any time of the year,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Home Alone [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
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.
