Random movie notes: 10-year-old Macaulay Culkin, the star of the smash ($118.4 million in six weeks) comedy Home Alone, has emerged as Hollywood's newest box office champ. Better make that lightweight champ though: Arnold Schwarzenegger stayed right on the imp's heels with Kindergarten Cop ($11.3 million in its first week)—and also has the top video rental with his theatrical hit from last summer, Total Recall (see Video, below).... Three of 1990's Top 10 pop singles had movie connections (see Song). In the cases of "Cradle of Love" (Ford Fairlane) and "Blaze of Glory" (Young Guns II), the record fared considerably better than the much-roasted film.... Parents: It's Saturday morning-do you know where your kids are? Probably watching a cartoon show based on a movie (see Tube). Four of the top weekend kidvid series piggybacked on successful hit movies. So that explains those "Cowabungas!" filtering their way upstairs from the den!
