My mailbox was a happy place when I got home from school today, because my little "before Christmas" order had arrived ^o^ Wohoo! Look!
New Moon – The Motion Picture Original Soundtrack
HOME ALONe – Family Fun Edition DVD
HOME ALONe – Christmas Album
I just had to own the New Moon soundtrack myself after having watched the masterpiece of a movie. The music is great and there is a lot of variation in the genres ^^ About the other stuff, well it's Christmas! XD I'm a sucker for Macaulay Culkin's cute face and adorable acting. I've been watching the HOME ALONe movies every Christmas all my life, as long as I remember! :D
It's the best Christmas movies ever made! (Except movie 3 and 4 – for God's sake – skip those!)
I look forward to all the neat special features on this DVD release, especially the commentary by Chris Columbus and Macaulay<3 That's going to be fun! And then there are the 15 deleted scenes and alternative takes :O That's something huh?
The HOME ALONe music is really something special in my opinion. Every time I hear John Williams' "Somewhere in My Memory" it's like being in another dimension, a Christmas dimension where everything is warm and safe. It's amazing… Maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but I just love the score and music so much XD The song "All Alone on Christmas" by Darlene Love is one of my favorite songs from the movies, it's so happy and exhilarating. But actually I like every song and music score composed for this movie :D <3<3<3
Now to the New Moon soundtrack
I have looked forward to listen to this album for two weeks now, so you can imagine what a relief it was for me to put it in my Cd-player this afternoon! ^O^ The first number "Meet Me on the Equinox" by Death Cab for Cutie is really nice, and I have already listened to this many times before buying this soundtrack. The other songs, on the other hand, I haven't heard really, other than when they played in the movie itself. I love the tracks: Rosyln by Bon Iver & St. Vincent, Satellite Heart by Anya Marina, Possibility by Lykke Li (from one of my neighbors – Sweden! cool ^^) and Slow Life by Grizzly Bear and No Sound But the Wind by Editors<3
Besides this soundtrack, there is the New Moon Score, which I have listened to on the net. The score is actually much much better than I expected, because at the time I watched the movie I didn't really have time to notice the beautiful composed music in the background XD The first track "New Moon" is fantastic, I love the mysterious sound to it and the sad tone as well. It's composed by Alexandre Desplat (sounds French doesn't it? ^^) and there's a piano version of the track "New Moon" on the soundtrack as well ^o^ Wonderful, wonderful :3 I also love the tracks: Dreamcatcher, Edward Leaves, Almost a Kiss, Break Up, To Volterra, You Are Alive and Marry Me, Bella. XD *Sigh*
I can't wait till Monday, where I'm going to watch New Moon again! Wee~ ^o^ I know… I'm a crazy fan (O3o)/ (<– look! a crazy smiley XD) Haha
Here's some extra pictures from HOME ALONe – now I had them already ^^
