Home Alone Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Home Alone comes home on Blu-ray in a rather nice looking 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. Colors are bold but the image takes on a hazy appearance in many shots. Detail is generally high; all the intricacies of the house look better than ever. A few close-up shots of more mundane objects like a tile floor and a back door reveal all varieties of scuffs and dirt, making the home looked "lived in" and the image rather realistic in such scenes. The wallpaper, the odds and ends in the basement, and the junk scattered throughout the attic all look sharp and generally true to life. However, detail on close-ups of actors is virtually nonexistent, as most look caked in heavy makeup and terribly smooth. Various outdoor scenes, particularly those taking place during the day, fare much better, looking less like there is a film over the image and more natural in appearance. There is little in the way of noise over the image. Blacks seem to veer towards a dark purple in some shots, and flesh tones appear accurate, despite the rather smooth nature of faces as noted above. All in all, Home Alone has never looked better, and while this transfer doesn't reside in the same class as the best of the Blu best, it represents a rather nice visual upgrade that longtime fans will appreciate.


Home Alone Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Home Alone hangs out on Blu-ray with a high quality, and surprisingly active, DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Many might expect this soundtrack to be front heavy with little in the way of subwoofer or back channel support, but quite the opposite is the case. There is a nice power and vitality to the soundtrack, particularly during the more robust parts of the score, for example the scene featuring the family scrambling to get ready on the morning of the trip in chapter six. Bass makes its presence known more than once. Several sounds sweep into the surrounds to excellent effect. Most sound natural, a few sound a bit forced into the track. The mix can be almost obnoxiously loud in a few spots that might have viewers fiddling with the remote during some of the film's key moments. The Angels with Filthy Souls scenes sound far better than the old VHS tape looks in the movie, and it is a bit disconcerting looking at the old, ragged image while the audio fills up the soundstage with power and precision, particularly in accompaniment of the gunshots. Nevertheless, Home Alone features a very surprisingly robust soundtrack that will leave fans satisfied with the experience and the Blu-ray purchase.
