I really just don't do musicals at all. The only film that I like that has a lot of

songs in it is The Nightmare Before Christmas, but apart from that, I can't think of anything else.

Oh yes, I must say that the Disney movies with their own

sonngs in them were very treasurable to me. All of the animated classics.

Anybody still watch the original Home Alone ? That is a

classic movie. Great fun for the holidays. My family and I have watched it three or four times in a row every

Christmas Eve. We've got a great tradition going on here! (laugh)

Don't you mean paint cans instead of bricks, or are you

refering to the second one, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York ?

Heh, the Home

Alone
films are classics, and they are, in my opinion, absolutely brilliant! The first three

Home Alone films made it to #2 in my list after all (they are all tied for second

place). :) Yes, you heard right - second place!

The Home

Alone
films used to be my favourite movies of all time. That only changed in 1997 when I saw

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope in theatres (all the Star

Wars
movies tie for first place in my list, obviously ;) ).

I know that most people

wouldn't agree about calling any of the Home Alone films masterpieces (especially 2

and 3, considering that they've been panned by audiences and critics alike), but that's what I consider them to

be. Our family also has an unofficial tradition of watching Home Alone films every

Christmas (or any day during the Advent season).

The only Home Alone film

that I didn't like was Home Alone 4. But the thing is, that movie was made-for-TV,

so I never expected it to be a masterpiece in the first place. Unfortunately, I also never expected it to be

horrible, which I thought it was....
Latest movie(s) to make it to my list of top films:

In

my opinion, the third and fourth ones are the most terrible, basically because they didn't include any of the

original cast. Why would you even make a sequel to a movie, and not have the original cast? Unless of course,

they didn't want to come back for the follow-up.

Haven't seen the second Home Alone, but I want to so

badly! Heh. And I won't be watching the third one or the fourth.

Oh yeah, I love all of the Home Alone films (with the exception of the fourth

one, which I haven't seen yet). I crack up every time I watch them. :lol:

The third one wasn't that

good, however, like you stated, CountSolo. The only reason I really like it is

because of the rat.... :P

As for musicals, well...I enjoy all of the classics: The Sound of

Music, My Fair Lady
, etc....

Oh I love that movie. My gut exploded from

laughter after I first saw that movie.

I think the main reason that the fourth one was

so appalling is that John Hughes wasn't involved with that project in any way. The fact that the film didn't

have that Home Alone "feel" isn't too much of a problem; the problem is

that they weren't able to make their new storytelling format work.

It's too bad you didn't like the

third one, but to each his own :) Obviously, I highly recommend that you watch the second one. I usually don't

like slapstick comedy (they've been overusing that comedy technique recently, in my humble opinion), but the

first three Home Alone films are some of the films that I've seen in which

slapstick actually works.

Note to CountSolo, I said I would not be watching the third or the

fourth one. Sorry if this came across as being sarcastic.

I highly recommend you

not to watch the fourth one. Unless you're really curious, you're bound to be

disappointed (but we all hold different opinions, so you never know :) )

Did you mean to say, "...like [I]

stated," or, "...contrary to what I stated"? ;)

Oh, no, I didn't find anything sarcastic in your post at all. As I said, to

each his own.
