Home Alone- Family Fun Edition
16 years later, they finally put together a massive special edition of one of the biggest movies of all time. The Home Alone DVD has a great mix of found footage and new retrospective documentaries, but it had one extra that made me break a longstanding tradition of avoiding audio commentary tracks.
DVD Review: Home Alone- Family Fun Edition
A session of grown-up Macaulay Culkin talking about Home Alone was too enticing to pass up. I figured I'd scan a few minutes and give up, but it was so entertaining, I listened to almost the whole movie.
Joined by Chris Columbus, Mac is in good spirits. Both are self-deprecating about the admitted flaws in the film, but rightfully proud that the overriding themes connected with mass audiences.
Surprisingly, they make a lot of grown-up references to industry politics and classic films. That's great for film geeks, especially the dirt they dish on stars like Joe Pesci. It all comes across as very honest, fun and complete. They remember everything and tell the whole story of Home Alone on this track.
Stay tuned for updates.
