What can be said about the first two "Home Alone" films that hasn't already been said? I don't want to spend this whole review talking about the greatness of these two films, so I'll keep it brief. Are these cinematic masterpieces? No. But are they fun films that you can watch with your entire family, sharing the joy of the feeling of the holiday and creating magical memories of your own? Absolutely! These films aren't long on logic or realism, but they're full of the "John Hughes spirit" of fun, and anyone who has seen and loves these films knows they're an absolute must-watch during the holiday season. 'Nuff said.

Now, about these Blu Rays: these were a long-awaited release for me. And, as crazy as it sounds to some, as I prefer it to the first, I was even more excited about the second film. But, since I watched the BluRays with my family, we of course watched them chronologically. The first film looks absolutely MAGNIFICENT. Seriously, it's difficult to believe this is a twenty-year-old film when you see this BR transfer: sharp picture, depth of color, gorgeous contrasts...it's everything you'd expect from a great BR transfer. And it is LOADED with Special Features. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about the sequel, which REALLY disappointed me. From the moment I put the DVD in, I was shocked: pixellation, digital noise, excessive grain, blech. The lack of quality transfer for the film really upset me because the cinematography in the second film is absolutely fabulous: the vistas of New York, the rich colors in the brownstone, not to mention the gorgeous tree in the finale. And as for special features...they're at a bare-bones minimum.

The Home Alone collection on Blu-Ray is one of the better two-packs available. First the original movie has been restored and remastered to almost the best picture quality available for this originally low-budgeted 20-year old family film. Audio is crystal clear, and the disc is packed with a ton of extra features. The best feature of the disc is watching the audio commentary of Chris Columbus (Director) and Macaulay Culkin (Lead Actor). They play off each other quite nicely and reminisce about making the film and the troubles and fun memories during production. Other special features include:

-Trailers
-Deleted scenes
-Outtakes
-Commentary track
-Stunts featurette
-Behind-the-scenes "making of" documentary
-and much more!

Home Alone 2 on the other hand still retains the excellent picture and audio quality of the first film, but doesn't have any special features, hence the 4-star rating. Overall, I would definitely recommend this excellent product to the fans of the series, and to families who enjoy a good holiday comedy film.

My wife and I love Home Alone 1 and 2. We recently purchased this and went to watch HA2 first because we hadn't seen that one yet this Christmas season and were extremely disappointed at the picture quality. The picture was jumpy in places and there was grain and squiggly lines all over the place. We ended up putting our original DVD in and felt that it was better.

Home Alone on Disc 1 had some great extras but we weren't all that impressed with the picture quality of it either, though it was at least watchable compared to Disc 2/Home Alone 2. We ended up returning this because the original DVD's are just fine for us and in the end it was not worth the "upgrade" just to be able to watch the extras.

I just picked up this set from a local brick and mortar chain. I see a lot of negative opinions about Home Alone 2 in particular. Some reviewers have even said that their old DVD copy looks better than the blu-ray. I watched it last night and found no problems with the picture quality whatsoever. I noticed a vast improvement in the detail over my old DVD copy. But I don't know if I got a newer set or what, but the product I purchased has different artwork on the carboard sleeve as well as the the individual inserts for the disc cases. Also they have a 2013 release date on them. I can't find pictures of a set with the same artwork anywhere except on an import copy, but that artwork has english and foreign language print on it, mine only has english. So I don't know if I've gotten newly released and remastered discs or this is the same set with new artwork. But it's odd I can't find any pictures of a US release with this artwork on it anywhere. I might upload some pics later. For now I will upload the pic I found of the import.

EDIT 11/14/13 - I see Amazon has added a photo for the updated art on the slipcover. Anybody else get the ones with the new artwork?

The title of the review says it all. These are the best versions of these films available. Sound and Picture quality un-equaled on any other versions. These movies have replaced Charlie Brown with the Grand Kids as the annual must see Christmas Movies so I have seen all the versions to date. I highly recommend this collection to anybody who wants the watching experience maximized.
