Let’s Keep It Real : “Home Alone 2: Lost In New York” Is Better Than The Original

check out the post below

Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York are the greatest Christmas movies of all time. It’s not even close. If it was up for debate, let me just end it with the fact that the first Home Alone is the highest grossing Christmas movie of all time at North American Box Offices. Men lie, woman lie, but numbers don’t, but there is something to be said about the franchise.

Home Alone’s first movie success spawned three movies with essentially the same premise, but out of the four movies made, Macaulay Culkin was only in the first two, so the movies without him, in my mind, don’t exist. With that being said, as much I can say Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York are the greatest Christmas movies of all time, one of them has to be better than the other.

And that movie is “Home Alone 2: Lost In New York.” What! No! The Horror! Yes, this time around, the sophomore movie is better than the original. Let’s be real, The first Home Alone essentially only had one set location; The house.

All of the shenanigans happened at the house and even though the second movie was just like the first movie, it just had so much more in it and that was New York. I fell in love with New York because of Home Alone 2. Watching Macaulay Culkin aka Kevin Mcallister run around a huge city like NYC was so lit as a kid because you were like damn, I wish that was me.

Kevin had all the money in the world, finessed a ritzy hotel and stayed in a luxurious suite and got to roam NYC in a limo. If you were a kid and watched this and this wasn’t a life goal of yours than I don’t know what childhood you were living. And it’s understandable that you might like the first movie more than the second, the first one is a classic. It has the nostalgia all over it, but it’s just not as exciting as the second one.

Even the shenanigans in the second movie were more insane than the ones in the first movie. The Wet Bandits aka The Sticky Bandits Harry and Marv really should have died from the injuries sustained in the second movie, but a movie’s a movie. Kevin really destroyed them.

So even though, Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York are the greatest Christmas movies of all time, Lost In New York is truly the greatest Christmas movie of all time, if you don’t think that’s the case between the two movies, you’re kidding yourself.
