Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it's time to bring on the Christmas movies. One particular movie that is celebrating an anniversary is "Home Alone 2." The "Home Alone" series produced 3 theater movies and 2 made-for-TV movies and also turned child actor Macaulay Culkin in a star at the young age of 10. The first "Home Alone" movie was one of the biggest grossing movies in the U.S. from its release in 1990 to 2011. The movie's sequel "Home Along 2: Lost In New York" follows Culkin and the same two criminals, the Wet Bandits (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) to New York as Culkin's character "Kevin McCallister" gets on the wrong flight and has to fend for himself in the "big apple."
To celebrate the movie's 25th anniversary, 20th Century Fox re-released the film back in October as a combo Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD package with new cover art. To find out more about this new release, please visit foxconnect.com.
Songstress Jennifer Saran is preparing to released her debut, holiday-themed album titled "Soulful Christmas." on November 24th. It features a 17-song mix of originals and Christmas classics, performed with a timeless feel. She begins with the holiday original "Christmas Lover," which features supporting vocals from the legendary Temptations. Eleven of the songs are newly penned originals as Saran showcases her beautiful vocals on "Long Road Home For Christmas" and "Some Children See Him." The title-song "Soulful Christmas" can easily be a new traditional R&B holiday classic as it carries that timeless quality, like in "Sleigh Ride" and the album closer "Frosty The Snowman." She picks the tempo up with the pop beats of "Merry Christmas To You" and has fun performing with Cornell "CC" Carter on the playful "Christmas Delight."
