10 Parts In Home Alone That Still Bother Me [Click for full article]
Home Alone is an absolute holiday classic and a cornerstone of many of our childhoods, but, like anything that I watched when I was little (then watched again 47 million other times including earlier today), there’s a number of parts that always bugged me.
5. Harry almost bites Kevin’s fingers off
Harry and Marv are career petty-thieves who meticulously scout and rob rich peoples’ homes, but then out of nowhere, Harry flips over to total psychopathy and decides he’s going to brutally maim a child? I mean, I get that he’s frustrated that he just got an ‘M’ burned into his hand-flesh for eternity, but still, killing a child is a sliiightly different echelon of crime than grabbing some rich woman’s angel figurines.
WHAT WOULD‘VE HAPPENED IF THE SHOVEL GUY HADN‘T INTERVENED? Would Harry have literally bitten Kevin’s fingers off while Marv watched?? What a moderately disturbing thought.
Here are the 10 Parts In Home Alone That Have Always Bothered Me
A trip down memory lane and a Sarlacc pit with this Star Wars ROTJ ‘Battle at Sarcallc’s Pit’ board game
Looking for something for that Star Wars fan in your life who pretty much has every collectible ever? I’d wager that they don’t have this. Heck, they probably don’t even know that this game actually came out in 1983.
I don’t remember much about the game except that my mom bought it for us at a garage sale around ‘85-‘86 and instead of playing the game my brothers and I would often act out scenes from Return of the Jedi using the board game and all the pieces.
It was neat because the Sarlacc’s pit was the bottom of the box that the game came in and a paper overlay with the pit sat on top of the box. You’d knock over the pieces and they’d fall into the pit and, in turn, the box. It basically put the game away for you as you played it!
I’m not sure where our copy of the game went over the years, but as a Star Wars fan, if this showed up under my tree I’d waste no time at all putting the set together and re-enacting the infamous scene from Return of the Jedi.
