I've been promising this thread for a while, and the Holiday Season is finally here guys. Whats a better way to spend the holidays by overanalyzing Christmas films like the cynical a-holes we are? Without a doubt my favorite Christmas film in my youth was "Home Alone", until of course I ran into Christmas Vacation. People seem to think that Home Alone is ridiculous in many ways, but if you have overanalyzed this film as much as I have and looked at this world through Kevin's eyes, it all becomes quite plausible (aside from Marv getting his face bashed in with an iron, he'd have his skull shattered over that one). Yeah Home Alone 2 isn't realistic at all, but the first is completely realistic once you see the world through Kevin's eyes.
So this isn't going to be an ordinary analysis from me. Its going to be character by character and situation by situation analysis from me on what the frick is going on in these two films (the first more than the second). I'm about to rewatch the first one and take notes and report back on my findings over the next month. Please feel free to overanalyze these films with me and share your opinions on these films.
And by the way, talking about Home Alone 3 will not be tolerated in this thread. That film is an abomination and completely terrible. I've even heard rumors that there is a 4th film out there somewhere *shutters*
