ello everyone and welcome back to another #fridayschoice.
Today I am talking about Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
This is sort of like an honourable mention movie discussion because even though they are classic movies, and I know that some people watch them year in and year out at Christmas time, these movies did not make it on to my #moviemonday list of movies for December.
There were a few other Halloween movies that did not make it on to my movie list in October so I have made a note of them for next year and there will be some Christmas movies that I will be saving for next year too so Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York will likely get discussed in more detail at some point in the future on Katelovesliterature.com but they will not feature on a #moviemonday this December even though they are movies that I enjoy.
I am going to talk about them today though because I could not let December pass by without mentioning them at all, and since there is a new movie out this year in Disney plus called Home Sweet Home Alone, I feel like I am hearing about these movies constantly lately.
I did watch Home Sweet Home Alone on Disney plus, and I have heard mixed opinions on it. I did not love it, but I thought it had some funny moments, but in my opinion, the first two movies can’t be beaten. They are the best.
I’ve been thinking about this, and I think that I prefer Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. I think it is my favourite of all the movies. I know the original is a classic, it has so many quotable, and meme-worthy moments, but I remember falling in love with New York when I watched the sequel. I think it is almost like a love letter to New York because the city just looks so magical. I still want to stay in the Plaza Hotel someday.
I think that sequels can be hit and miss, but there are a few sequels that I love, and there are one or two sequels that I would say I actually like better than the original movie but I will save those picks for future #moviemonday discussions. I may even do a #sequelseries where I talk about sequels that I really liked, along with others that I feel were unnecessary.
Is Home Alone on your must watch list? Which movie do you prefer? Home Alone or Home Alone 2: Lost in New York? Let me know.
This has been Friday’s Choice. I hope you enjoyed it. We are getting closer and closer to Christmas and I cannot wait. I hope you all have a great weekend.
