5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect christmas gift
If you or somebody you know loves Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, and doesn't want the both movies buy themselves, this is something to get. But this is not the only 2 pack for movies on dvd, Toy Story and Toy Story 2, 101 and 102 Dalmatians, are also movies that are in 2 packs. In the first Home Alone, young Kevn McCallister (Macaualy Culkin) is angry with...

1.0 out of 5 stars Unacceptably poor transfer to blu-ray
The picture quality on the Home Alone 2 disk in this blu-ray collection looks like it was ported over from a DVD. In fact, this blu-ray transfer is so bad, most of my lower-resolution DVDs display better than this blu-ray. You can see the grains (also known as picture noise) in this so-called "blu-ray" disk in almost every scene. If you can get the DVD cheaper than the...

If you or somebody you know loves Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, and doesn't want the both movies buy themselves, this is something to get. But this is not the only 2 pack for movies on dvd, Toy Story and Toy Story 2, 101 and 102 Dalmatians, are also movies that are in 2 packs. In the first Home Alone, young Kevn McCallister (Macaualy Culkin) is angry with his large family, and wishes his whole family to disappear, the McCallisters have a trip to Paris coming up, the next day. But the every member of the family sleeps in because of a power problems during the night. And when they wake up, they have to do a lot of running around getting ready. But they forget one thing, they leave Kevin McCallister behind. And Kevin is happy when he wakes up and doesn't see his family around.
Okay Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, Macaulay Culkin is back as Kevin McCallister, but once again his family makes him angry, when there is trouble in a christmas pagent. And this time the McCallisters are going to Miami, and Kevin wishes that this time if he had his own money he own money he'll on his own vaction. There are once again power problems and the McCallisters are rushing around again, and they head off for the airport, and this time Kevin is wake and is at the airport, but his family is running to fast, Kevin loses his passport, and gets on hte flight with his family (or so he thinks), but he really boared a plane for New York. Looks like to me, Kevin has got his wish again to me. Other characters in both films include Harry (Joe Pesic), Marv (Daniel Stern), Kevin's mother (Catherine O'Hara), Kevin's dad (John Heard), Kevin's bother Buzz (Devin Ratray) and Kevin's grumpy uncle Frank (Gerry Bamman)

You can see the grains (also known as picture noise) in this so-called "blu-ray" disk in almost every scene. If you can get the DVD cheaper than the blu-ray, I recommend buying the DVD as you will save money and have almost the same quality picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't have one without the other, Dec 27 2002
Ce commentaire est de: Home Alone+Home 2 (DVD)
It is a Thanksgiving tradition in my house to watch "Home Alone" as the dinner is being prepared. (My kitchen T.V. has a built in DVD player.) We all recite together "Take that, you filthy animal!" I always cringe at the same parts where the robbers fall into Kevin's traps. The next day, we watch "Home Alone 2" and relax. It's a lot of work preparing and cleaning up Thanksgiving dinner!
These movies are considered holiday classics in our home. ("Home Alone 3" isn't even worth considering.) These two movies represent that rare combination of the sequel being just as good as the original.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Bonus Materials??????????????, April 24 2004

Ce commentaire est de: Home Alone+Home 2 (DVD)
Dont get me wrong. This is a great movie, and the second one is great too. But these transfers to DVD's are complete rip offs! Where are the bonus features?????
They may come with trailers, full screen, and subtitles.... but I was very disapointed when these came out on DVD and had nothing else included on them. And I know the stuff exsists! I remember very clearly watching a behind the scenes featurette on home alone, and home alone 2 when they where about to be released. I remember Daniles talkin about how he was the guy in charge of whats funny, and i remember them talking about how it wasnt filmed at christmas and they had fake snow, and fake pigeons ect.... WHERE ARE THOSE FEATURES?????
To a person who dosent care about bonus features. Then go ahead and buy these great movies. But for someone like me who does want things like that, espesicly for such a huge comedy smash hit like these 2 movies, youd expect more wouldnt you? Even Audio comentary would be nice? Why is this blockbuster sucses treated so poorly on the DVD release? ITS NOT EVEN IN SURROUND SOUND!!!!!!!!!! (5.1)
I hope they release a better special edition of these films with features worth buying, to replace the old VHS copys most of us have. Untill then, keep your videos, the dvd's arnt worth getting yet

5.0 out of 5 stars You gotta see this one, Nov. 9 2002

Home alone part 1 in my opinion is better than part 2 and 3,I think there is a fourth one.The first one is the best one because
it has Macaulay Culkin at his best,in part 2 it wasn't as funny
as the first one.Part 3 didn't even have him in the movie,so any
Home Alone without Culkin well it just ... The first one is a classic featuring Joe Pesci who is another one of my favorite
comedians.I watch part 1 every time christmas comes around,
that's the best time to watch it.If your gonna buy any Home alone
movies just buy the first one it's a classic,forget about the other ones,I'm glad I only own the first one.(Buy it today).
