Admittedly never really being a huge fan of James And The Giant Peach as a young child and only started watching it as a teenager and having liked it then, I think after a while I noticed the flaws within this film and how I think it could have been so much better. I mean, the weaknesses of this film in my opinion are that I didn't find the young man who played James entirely convincing, it lacked... read more

I remember it very well, more than 20 years ago, I saw ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ and I thought it was really awesome. Back then, there was quite some controversy about this movie because, even though it was in fact directed by Henry Selick, Tim Burton eventually seemed to get most of the credit for this amazing movie.

“I remember it very well, more than 20 years ago, I saw ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ and I thought it was really awesome. Back then, there was quite some controversy about this movie because, even though it was in fact directed by Henry Selick, Tim Burton eventually seemed to get most of the credit for this amazing movie. Eventually, 3 years later, Selick would release another stop-motion feature, this time, without any involvement of Tim Burton so I was really eager to check the damned thing and I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released. Unfortunately, I thought it was actually rather disappointing. Indeed, basically, even though it was indeed visually really neat, to be honest, I didn’t care much for the story. I have to admit it, I have never been a really huge fa” read more

When IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes disagree (65 movies items)

"Rotten Tomatoes: 93% IMDb: 6.7 Difference- 26 Nawww come on IMDb! This couldn't even scrape the 7.0 mark? I am a sucker for stop-motion animation films. I find the work that goes into making them absolutely fascinating. But, (and this is actually a recurring theme here), stop-motion animation does NOT tend to score highly on IMDb! 'Chicken Run', 'The Pirates!' and 'Paranorman' are all examples of stop-motion animation that deserve to be a lot higher than they get on IMDb! I'm sorry, I have to "
