Star Wars. The Lord of the Rings. Home Alone. And most recently, Guardians of the Galaxy. Each of these films are outstanding.
Some of us weren’t even born when Home Alone premiered, but 24 years later, it still holds up (it’s our favorite Christmas movie, by the way). And while Macaulay Culkin’s penchant for mischief and Joe Pesci’s inability to curse are two of the more enjoyable elements of Home Alone, the soundtrack is what truly holds the film together.
From beginning to end, the soundtrack of Home Alone – and the soundtrack of each the aforementioned films – provides the bedrock that supports the entire film.
Suffice it to say: John Williams will find you.
