Home Alone

Merry Christmas everyone! Home Alone's great isn't it? I mean its terrifyingly violent for a kids move and much more imitate-able than say Call of Duty or something like that. You can't get a hold of explosives or assault rifles that easily but toy cars, string, paint pots, nails? You can create quite the assault course for mummy and daddy when they try and put you to bed. I saw the tail end of Home alone 4 the other day and it was just awful. Instead of just getting a new kid and family and having the same 'kid vs crooks' set up that was the heart of franchise. They felt the need to call the new kid 'Kevin McCallister' even though he looks nothing like him and continue on the story. His parents are split up now and he's staying with his 'Mom' for Christmas. Marv returns for some reason with a female accomplice this time and 'hilarity' ensues in a house twice the size of the mansion from the first movie. Marv is played by Harry from 'Third rock from the sun' (the one with his eyes closed the whole time) and the whole thing plays out like some sort of nightmarish cartoon complete with scooby doo revolving bookcase gag. So if you want to watch some Home Alone when you're home alone this christmas stick to the first 2. Goodnight everyone and remember to drink your ovaltine.
