jesus christ not another one

We don't need another Home Alone.

I like Cutthroat Island and The Orville but have never been compelled to check out any of his other scores.    I don't think it's nice or helpful to call a composer a talentless hack instead

As opposed to all the classless ways other composers did Williams' themes.

 

Often, yes. I'm not thrilled with the treatment of Williams themes in stuff like ROGUE ONE, JP3, the JW movies or JAWS 3D, for example. And I would worry a whole lot more if this was in the hands of certain other composers. Debney, on the other hand, has a track record that shows he can do Williams' stylings in a classy way.

I've never had any reason to boycott a film, but I will for this one. I don't really care who's scoring it, what I care about is that they have the audacity to take a beloved Christmas film that's not even thirty years old, and remake it so the same assholes who shoveled buckets of popcorn down their throats with Aladdin, The Lion King and the other soulless, sadistic, cheap, hollow, incredulous, disingenuous remakes will come flying back to the cinemas for this garbage.

 

You know what else will suck, and nothing against Debney - but this film won't have the same songwriting from Leslie Bricusse or Williams' magical themes. So fuck this, fuck everything about this. I don't love Home Alone, but the idea of remaking it because it will sell tickets is disgusting consumerist crap.

Oh, please. Get off your pedestal. There are already five Home Alone films; and “Christmas Classics” are remade constantly.

 

Not to mention this is a Disney+ film, no one will be seeing this in a theater.

John Hughes himself rewrote Miracle on 34th Street in between 2 and 3 lol.

 

And as you say Home Alone has already been sequelized to hell and back. 3-5 were basically “reboots” anyway and the third one only used Williams in the title if I remember right.

 

But complaining about this is like giving any attention to a TV movie or VHS release. Same financial imperative as back in the day, they’re just doing this to generate content like always. The only difference is adults inexplicably pay attention to these things like they’re big news and it gets publicized like a major release, I suppose because Disney+ is new and all, the Fox sale etc, but this is literally no different than when Fox farted out 4 and 5 for Disney’s ABC networks.

 

Like that’s the other thing is this is technically Fox/Disney’s third Home Alone project anyway.

Disney green-lights another 'Home Alone' movie but they won't green-light a 'Home Alone 2' LTP concert.  

 

There are orchestras in the USA and Canada that have presented the 'Home Alone' LTP concert every year during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season.

 

Detroit Symphony Orchestra since 2016

Nashville Symphony Orchestra since 2017

Toronto Symphony Orchestra since 2017

Sort of a pandemic going on...
