I have never understood the Home Alone hate. Sure the concept is beyond silly, but it is a harmless flick. The squeals are horrific and we shall not talk about them here, but the first one is not bad. I must have watched that movie a billion times as a kid. Which makes this short just awesome for me:
What can I say, I enjoyed it to no end. A couple of thoughts:
I don’t know if Kevin would have gone crazy from his experience. I mean, his family was gone only for a couple of days and Kevin seem well adjusted before the movie started. I don’t think I would have been scarred over being left home alone for that amount of time. If anything, it looks like stuff afterward may have drove him crazy. But I am not a psychiatrist, so I don’t know.
In the comments, people point out that Macaulay Culkin could very easily do the Joker or do Kurt Cobain in a biopic. I agree with both these points. We have left out Macaulay Culkin in the cold for far too long. In the space of two days, he has driven 13.8 Million (at the time of this reaction) to that video. I call that a smashing success. In a hands of a great director, I think Macaulay Culkin could indeed make a come-back.
Well, see ya’ later!
