Holiday Movie 2015 Full Movie 1080p

The painful and hilarious holiday classic Home Alone gouges fans in the eyes with a brand new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ay release with HDR10. You've seen the movie a hundred times, but now thanks to the new transfer, you'll see new details, and the judicious HDR grading highlights the film's already beautiful color pallet. Without a new audio mix or any new bonus features, fans have to ask if the improved video quality is worth the purchase - again - of this holiday comedy. Recommended.

Holiday movie 2015 full movie 1080p

As I wrote for the Ultimate Collector's Edition set in 2015, there's not a whole lot to say about this movie that hasn't already been said. You're either a fan - or you're not. For some, the nostalgia of sitting in the theater watching a small kid take down grownups with a variety of diabolical traps is well worth revisiting. I love how the film has grown into this meme of equating little Kevin to Rambo setting traps and picking off the bad guys one-by-one. Years ago I made a mashup trailer where I turned him into the killer from Red Dragon - but the Rambo meme is just as funny. Hell, I love the videos that try to scientifically prove all the ways Harry and Marv would have actually died from any of the injuries they sustained in this movie let alone the sequel.

30 years later, Home Alone is still a fun show. As a new father, it's wild to realize I was 8 years old when my parents took me to see this at the theater over Thanksgiving - and then for the next several weekends after. We certainly did our part to contribute to the film's massive domestic box office haul. And then as soon as it hit VHS I forced my parents to pre-order a copy so I could pick it up from the mall video store and watch it a dozen more times when and where I wanted. I'm waiting for the day that I get tired of ever seeing this movie again. I'm sure that day will come when my son discovers it and watches to watch it every day all day. Until then, it's a nice little piece of childhood nostalgia to pull out during the holidays.

Given that I usually wait to watch this one until closer to Christmas, I was surprised at how easily I got caught up in this little adventure again - even in full sunny 70-degree weather. Sure, some of the gags haven't aged well in three decades, but that's more due to familiarity at this point than any actual problem with the movie itself. Home Alone 2 certainly isn't a fresh film since it's a beat-for-beat rehash of this one, but the pair make for a welcome double feature every winter. Don't try to overthink it - just kick back and have fun.

Home Alone makes its 4K UHD Blu-ray debut thanks to Disney and their retitled 20th Century Studios brand in a 2-disc 4K UHD + Blu-ray + Digital set. My digital slip was blank, no code was printed on it - so that could be a thing or just my dumb luck. The 4K disc loads to Disney's usual structured Language sub-menu and then lets you proceed right to the movie or to a static image main menu. None of the bonus features are on the 4K disc so the only reason to visit the main menu at all is to turn on subtitles if you need to. While the image printed on the standard Blu-ray is different, the disc itself is identical to the 2015 remastered disc.

Home Alone lands on 4K UHD Blu-ray with a pleasing 2160p/HEVC H.265 HDR10 1.85:1 transfer. Right away the color benefit of the HDR10 pass is apparent. That blue house graphic already picks up significant pop. While initially soft on fine details due to the credits, the image immediately takes on a warmer tone and feel when we enter the family home. The original Blu-ray and previous home video releases were always nice and bright and colorful, but now there's a feeling of warmth to the colors that are befitting of a holiday movie. Skin tones are healthy and reds, blues, and yellows have a lovely pop. Christmas lights throughout the movie offer a nice glint to the lighting.

Instead of opting for a new Atmos or DTS:X mix, Disney was content to recycle the same decent and effective DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio mix from the previous Blu-ray release. This track still holds up nicely with clear dialogue, nice sound effects, and good imaging. Some decent LFE pumps come through from any impacts or the gunfire from the gangster movie. Not a bad mix at all and if you pop on DTS Neural:X the mix takes on a little extra punch.

Home Alone is a nostalgic holiday classic. It's become a generational favorite as the kids that first saw this movie in theaters now have kids and are introducing it to their brood. With the fun mix of child-focused comedy hijinks and the playful game performances from participants like Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern make this movie. Every kid wanted to be left home alone after this movie - at least I did - because who wouldn't want to have the run of the house and do whatever they wanted? As Home Alone celebrates its 30th Anniversary, it's now getting a grand upgrade to 4K UHD Blu-ray from Disney. The new transfer offers a notable improvement over previous releases, but without a new audio mix or any new bonus features, it may be a tough sell for those who already have bought this title countless times over the decades. However, if you're itching for a new 4K disc this holiday season, you should be happy with the results. Recommended.

Rusty certainly is Clark's son, going from Anthony Michael Hall in the first film to Ed Helms here, a pilot for a third rate airline, now married to the outwardly motherly Christina Applegate whose secretly still a party girl inside. They have two sons ( Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins) who obviously despise each other (the YOUNGER brother is the bully in the most hysterically funny offensive way), and it's not just Helm who embarrasses the kids, Applegate does too. This is especially obvious when they stop by her alma mater where she tries to prove she's one of the cool kids after she learns that her reputation had lived on.Helm decides to liven things up by repeating his childhood vacation to none other than Wally World and there are several repeat situations done with a more modern perspective. One thing where it is certainly not modern is in its comic style which is closer to "Family Guy" with its no stone unturned in delicious gross out gags that had me yowling in delight and going "eew!" over and over as I howled.This is one of those comedies where the gags need to be discovered fresh with no spoilers as they are beyond description.Rusty's sister Audrey (played by Leslie Mann) also appears, brought up obviously liberal but married to the very Republican Chris Hemsworth, a good ole' boy who finds pleasure by feeding his prize steer beef ribs. Hemsworth leaves nothing to the imagination, proving that lots of things in Texas are big...well maybe not some brains. Older brother Gisindo keeps on encountering a nice girl also traveling that younger brother Stebbins keeps harassing every chance he gets.This was a perfect way to end 2020, so hysterically funny that I couldn't even pick out one scene as my favorite. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo appear in cameos as their characters from the four other movies, and it reminded me of how much I've missed the still sultry D'Angelo. If you ever need a break from the real world or the opportunity to laugh at it all in good fun, then take a trip to the updated version of the next Griswold generation. It's a trip that goes in the hall of shame along with those delicious photos in the opening with that terrifically now nostalgic vacation theme song.

Looking for a quality Dolby Atmos home theater system without breaking the bank? Well, it turns out that there are actually quite a few budget friendly display and audio options that offer solid picture and immersive audio solutions for under $1,500 combined! Though 4K is the hot commodity this holiday season, regular old HD is still alive and kicking, and 1080p models from VIZIO even include advanced features like local dimming. Likewise, TCL's Roku HDTVs are being praised for their simple and expansive smart TV options, making them the perfect fit for wallet-conscious buyers who want great plug-and-play streaming access. Meanwhile, Onkyo is doing a fine job filling our Dolby Atmos budget needs with several home-theater-in-a-box packages that include receivers and speakers with up-firing fronts or dedicated heights to create full 5.1.2 systems.

1080p just not good enough for you? Well, the 4K revolution starts here with these surprisingly affordable and well performing Ultra HD TV options. One again, VIZIO steps in with the best bang-for-your-buck prices and advanced picture quality features like full array local dimming with their M-Series. And though they lose the local dimming options, Samsung and Sony offer entry-level displays with HDR (high dynamic range) support. On the audio front, this price tier will allow users to add two more height speakers to create a 5.1.4 audio system. Thankfully, Pioneer offers a reasonably priced receiver with Atmos and future DTS:X support, and two great Andrew Jones speaker package options. Likewise, we're recommending a compact SVS surround sound system along with extra high-mounted downward angled satellites to serve as height speakers.
