Twenty-two Christmases ago, a kid got left home by his parents, and half a billion bucks in box office later, we’re still laughing as he turns a pair of burgling nitwits into his own personal Looney Tunes, not once, but twice. Now the kids that thrilled to Kevin’s precision paint buckets have kids of their own, and maybe they have some Blu-ray players, and maybe they want to teach their progeny new uses for power tools. No time like the present!
Home Alone Collection (Blu-ray): $11.99
And the kids that sired those kids, they probably grew up watching adventures of a different, perhaps even more plausible sort. Captain Kirk and the rest of the Enterprise crew have been lovingly restored from the original negatives by the same crew now handling Star Trek: The Next Generation, and come with a choice of either the original, untouched visual effects, or brand new enhanced ones At $40-ish a season, this is about as cheap as Star Trek gets, so if you’ve been on the fence, beam yourself up!
