Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost in New

York
, and Home Alone 3. I purposely left the fourth one out of that

list for reasons that need not be specified ;) but they called it Home Alone 4: Bringing Down the

House
. The title itself is testament enough to how bad it was (in my opinion).
Latest movie(s) to make it to my list of top films:
"Toy Story 3" (#5 spot)

I meant like you stated.

Heheh -- sorry for the misinterpretation. ;)

And yeah, I'll take your advice and not watch the fourth

one unless it just happens to be on tv or something. (snigger) :lol:

I think they made too many Home Alones. It isn't realistic for a kid to be left alone

some place to defend himself so many times.

No problem :)

Well, the third one didn't involve the same child, but yeah, you are still

correct in saying that the events depicted in the film are very unrealistic. But they are just movies after all -

filmmakers often transcend reality in their films.

One of the things that keep coming up in discussions

between me and my siblings regarding the Home Alone films is: How the heck could

those robbers still be alive by the end of the movie, considering what they've gone through? I mean, it's a

little weird that someone who just got electrocuted for who-knows-how-many seconds or someone who just got hit by

an iron on his forehead could survive. ;)

Haha -- yeah, I know. Nevermind how the guys survived, however. I wanna know how the kid got

so smart all of a sudden and just started constructing these traps like crazy. As a kid, it makes you want to

just try your hand at making them to see if they work. :P :lol:

My absolute favourite movies

include:

The Iron Giant;
The Incredibles;
South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut;
Monty Python and

the Holy Grail;
the Lord of the Rings trilogy;
Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl;
Fight

Club;
Shaolin Soccer.

As for what I'm looking forward to, I dunno -- I wouldn't mind seeing the next

Harry Potter movie, but it's not an absolute must. I tend not to look forward to movies.
This is a clever and thought-provoking signature.

I absolutely love Shaolin Soccer Spork. The Asian movie,

for some reason, really capture my attention. I also like Tokyo Drift, The anime movies, Crouching Tiger, Hero,

and House of Flying Daggers.

I just got The

Lord of The Rings film trilogy for Easter. And it was the Extended Edition. The three films have lots of new

material. Film one has 30 minutes of added footage, film two: 43 minutes, film three: 50 minutes. I watched the

first one last night with commentary by Peter Jackson and some of the writers, and discovered that there are four

commentaries, yes four, for the film. The set cost 70 dollars.

Who here also loves the trilogy?

Are any of you into the James Bond movies?

Just thought I'd ask. I'm not for some reason...

Oh I love James

Bond. THe action and themes always get me. James Bond reminds me so much of the Incredibles. That is because both

are incredibly similar.

Yes I have Bill. I thought the movie was okay. It was a

little too long for me, but I enjoyed the action and the Poker game. Really, really intense stuff in the

movie.

Yeah, Daniel Craig seems good from what I've seen. It's also

known that Never Say Never Again isn't an official James Bond film. It was distributed by Warner Bros. I think.

The official ones are distributed by United Artists, MGM, and most recently, Sony.
