2015 Holiday Wish GuideWhen it comes to holiday movies, its no secret that I have a real soft spot for them. One of the greatest is also very much a "Chicago" movie, and one written by a local icon - the late John Hughes. HOME ALONE turns 25 this year, and the folks at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment are releasing a collection that I'm officially adding to my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER - the HOME ALONE 25th Anniversary Ultimate Collection! This new set features all five films in the HOME ALONE franchise, along with some cool collectibles that come packed-in a paint can.

From the Official Announcement: Arriving on Blu-ray and DVD October 6, this must have gift set features all five films packaged together for the first time in a collectible paint can full of limited edition movie memorabilia that will keep the whole family laughing including a McCallister Christmas ornament, Kevin’s battle plan for the Wet Bandits, his tarantula and a wanted poster of the thieves – Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern) – and more.  Additionally, a gift set featuring HOME ALONE and HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK will be available exclusively at Target and features both films on Blu-ray along with a warm and wearable reproduction of Kevin’s famous winter knit hat from the films.

Featuring a superstar cast lead by Macaulay Culkin in the role that made him an international household name, relive every pratfall and prank with Catherine O’Hara, John Heard, John Candy, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern.  The franchise begins as eight-year-old Kevin McCallister (Culkin) has become the man of the house, overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays. But he's not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two bumbling burglars are trying to break in, and Kevin's rigging a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them!
