Home Alone 2 Lost In New York 1992

Home Alone 2 Lost In New York 1992
Home Alone 2 - A year or 2 since Kevin was left home alone at Christmas time. Yet again it is Christmas time for the McCallisters and its all go once again. Things start to go wrong soon as Kevin is singing with the choir, with Buzz is older brother in the choir to. Wanting to show Kevin up when it is his turn to do the solo part. He shows him up by pretending to play the drums on his head with the light up candles. When Kevin stops singing he turns around and sees him, he then pushes him causing the whole choir to fall over and the stage collapse.

Yet again he is in serious trouble when he gets home. Buzz pretends to apologise while whispering to Kevin "beat that you little trout sniffer" which gets him angry and tells the family he isn't apologising. He yet again gets sent to bed...

They all wake up again late they are all rushing around and getting ready to catch their flight to Florida. There all on the way to the airport and this time so is Kevin, they are all running through the airport when Kevin stops to go through his dad's bag to look for batteries for his audio recording device.

He then looks up and sees a man with the same coat as his dad run for the plane. He runs and runs into the woman boarding people on the plane which he drops his boarding pass into a huge pile of other passes. She decides to board him on the plane. But that was not his dad who he followed.

Now it turns out he is not home alone but alone in New York while his family are in Florida. So he as his dad's bag with all his credit cards, enough money to enjoy himself what can possibly go wrong. Oh apart from those burglars who he put behind bars have escaped prison and who is now in New York.

Pros
Family Christmas movie Comedy for the Family

Cons
Not much realistic near the end if you did the things in real life it would kill you

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

Definitely voting for Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. Home Alone was one of my favorite movies as a child. I always wanted to be Kevin, be home by myself in a huge house and just have fun (this is when I was a child). I would always play and act like I was a rich little kid, who's parents left me in a huge house and just had fun with it. Home Alone is a great movie for kids, it was my favorite movie up into school which is odd since it is kinda geared towards kids but it was mine. I loved the christmas spirit in the movies, the directors and actors seem to catch that spirit really well. I have watched all the Home Alone movies, and the first one is by far my favorite. I believe they ruined it when they changed the actor, however the actor was much older so they had to find a replacement. The storyline is a bit childish, but it is fun to watch for both adults and kids. The parents would definitely get a kick out of the bratty little child.

This one

I haven't actually watched Gremlins. I know what it is about but I have never bothered to watch it really. But, Home Alone 2 is a totally different story. This is one of my favourite films, I just love the whole Home Alone series. I have probably watched the films from Home Alone about a hundred times in total. I don't even know how many times I have watched this particular one. I just love it so much.

I prefer Home Alone 2 Lost in New York 1992

I'm a big fan of the movie Home Alone. I think this was one of the films that marked my childhood in the 90's and there really is no comparison with other similar films. This film makes me relive the Christmas spirit and is one of the films that I like to watch over and over again.

Childhood favorite.

Gremlins is one of those movies that I think I may have seen once when I was a kid and then never watched it again. I never found the movie all that compelling or interesting, and I pretty much have no feelings of nostalgia towards it, despite it being a movie loved by most kids who grew up in the 80's and early 90's. On the other hand, I really love Home Alone 2 and have many fond memories of it. Just thinking about the music and heartwarming Christmas theme gives me tingly feelings of nostalgia and happiness.

Home Alone

Both Home Alone movies are a Christmas staple. To be honest I don't like Gremlins at all and I haven't even thought that it's a Christmas movie. Home Alone always makes me laugh and the one in New York is very Christmassy and as a kid I always wanted to see NY during Xmas.

Home alone!

I will definitely vote home alone because I can watch it over and over again without getting bored. My siblings and I love watching it every Christmas time. This movie never gets old. Although it is dangerous to practice those traps and tricks at home, I never get enough of how those robbers get caught by every trap until the end.

Gremlins 1984

Gremlins 1984
Well, it's coming up for Christmas time in Kingston Falls, Randall Peltzer is an inventor but his inventions don't always work out well for him. While he visits China town he calls into an antique store as he needs to find the perfect Christmas gift for his son Billy. He comes across a cute furry little creature which is called Mogwai, but the owner Mr Wing will not sell and says it is not for sale.

But as he leaves the store Mr Wing's grandson sells Mogwai to Randall but also giving him very important rules which come with the responsibilities of having Mogwai. These rules are very simple and should keep to them never feed Mogwai after midnight, never expose Mogwai to bright lights as this can kill him and also don't let him get wet.

He arrives home with Mogwai, he presents him to his son Billy after they dim the lights first. Billy loves his gift and pet he calls Mogwai "Gizmo" which he seems to like the name as well. So the new pet "Gizmo" is loving his new home. After a while, he shows Gizmo off to his friends and girlfriend, which later when his friend Pete comes over and he accidentally spills water Gizmo spawns 5 other Mogwais.

Later on, he gives a science teacher one who experiments on one and pours water on one and spawns more. Billy later at home one of the Mogwais "strip" tricks billy in to feed them after midnight. By chewing the power cord which is on his clock in his bedroom. They end up eating and then turning into cocoons which when hatched they are mischievous and evil little monsters.

Will they get rid of them all in time while they are taking over the whole city and multiplying and getting out of hand. Causing mayhem and destruction.

Pros
comedy horror

Cons
even tho it is a family movie not sure about the younger generation

Loved Gremlins

I loved Gremlins. Yes they did scare me at the time but Gizmo was so stinking cute. We love Gizmo so much that we got a pink convertible toy car that year for Christmas and Gizmo was driving it. And a few years later when our dog had pups, we named one Gizmo. I think that this movie was such a classic. I would much rather watch it then Home Alone 2, which I really did not care for at all.

Gremlins Fan

I like Gremlins as it is a unique movie. I think they also spawned furbies the toy, however that came several years after the movie. I like Home Alone 2 and it is a good movie, but Gremlins is something that I really do like as well.

Gremlins - stars Gizmo

Of the two - I would definitely choose Gremlins - as apart from preferring the comedy horror theme and it being way, way less irritating than either of the Home Alone movies - the lead star was much more appealing and like-able overall - especially as Gizmo - is not only seriously cute but exceptionally clever too.

I love those creatures, haha.

"Home Alone" (the first movie) is timeless. The second is good, but not quite as excellent as the first. The same goes for "Gremlins"... The first is something extraordinarily original, the second, not so much.

So... Gremlins >>>>> Home Alone.

Easy Choice - Huge Gremlins Fan

I didn't like the first Home Alone. I don't even know why they made a sequel. The Gremlins I loved!! Not only did I like the little creatures but I liked all the supporting human characters as well. The Gremlins were pure fun entertainment.

GREMLINS!

GREMLINS is better imo than HOME ALONE, much less HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK. Granted, I love both movies and enjoy the franchise as a whole. But GREMLINS is a better movie mostly because I'm partial to horror.

I have heard of Gremlins, I may have watched this (because the name sounds very familiar) however, I don't remember watching this movie. Home Alone is my favorite movie from my childhood. This is till one of my favorite movies. Whenever I watch Home Alone, it gives me a good laugh.

You really need to watch Gremlins, if you haven't already. The story for sure will get you, and as a good one, it all starts so nice and quiet, but suddenly things turn upside down and you are having a lot of fun. Gizmo will win your heart, and you will learn what can happen when you do things you are told not to. Check it out, and you will see how good it is, you won't regret it.
