    Home Alone: Sweet Home (2021)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BkVf2voCr0&t=5s

    Another installment in the franchise and it's suppose to be another sequel, it looks like a cheap rip-off of the original 1990 classic movie. This not only looks terrible but the snarky tagline "Holiday classics were meant to be broken" has to be one of the worst taglines in history. That is a clear shot at the 1990 classic first entry in the series. What an insult to the first classic.

    "This is not going well"

    Even the trailer roasts itself. This looks like one of the worst movies of the year! This didn't need to be a franchise to began with, the first movie was a genuine christmas classic and lightning in a bottle and the second was enjoyable but it should had stopped there, but no they keep milking this dead cow and they should know when to leave this franchise alone and buried.

    Yea that looks pretty bad. It's practically a word for word, scene for scene copy. The crazy thing to boot is that the original holds up DAMN well too. Comes on every year and is even kid tested. My niece and nephew, 11 and 7 have both been watching it for years and LOVE it. Absolutely no need for this and I hope it tanks.

    Disney release another reboot/remake/sequel.

    I hear Disney are making a sequel called Home Alone: Revelations where the story will focus on the main characters brother/sister.

    To be fair, Home Alone had already destroyed itself with inferior sequels so one more won't hurt I guess (at the very least it can't be as bad as Home Alone 4)

    I don't think it so much a matter of if it'll be good or entertaining but a matter of necessity. As has been pointed out the original holds up and is still enjoyed by people that watched it as children and children today.

    They could have made something else, something new with the time money and actors they used for this.

    Home Alone 4 and 5 are terrible. 3 is bad but not like 4 and 5.

    This. Disney could have done pretty much anything else instead of spending it making this movie.

    Anyone ever read the Den of Geek reviews of the first five Home Alone films? The reviewer quite plainly has absolutely no time for any nonsense, and his savagery as he lays into the third and fourth film in particular is hilarious.

    It doesn't look very good, but it looks like Buzz from the original two movies is in it (he is the cop with McCallister on his jacket at about the 45 second mark).

    By this point, I expect to hate 99% of movies and TV shows being made.

    I as a resident of the UK would like to say, despite the English accent of the boy and the Irish actress trying to do an English accent that we had nothing to do with this whatsoever

    I wonder who should be playing Kevin McCallister in this remake. The original actor, Macaulay Culkin, is now a father from his partnership with Brenda Song, also a former child star herself, and he no longer acts today.

    I know this isn't directly related to the film, but LEGO Ideas is releasing the Home Alone set.

    https://ideas.lego.com/projects/7fed...4-6633cf57ddda

    No doubt it will be expensive, and instead one could buy many action figures. But it looks pretty good!

    If I want to watch a remake of the first film, I'll just watch Home Alone 2. I once got a phone call about Home Alone 3 a year or two before it came out. It was probably a 20 minute phone call asking questions like would I watch a Home Alone movie without Macaulay Culkin and general plot line details. I think I said no to pretty much everything, but they still made it anyways.
