"'Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems in a place perhaps you've seen in your dreams. For the story you're about to be told began with the holiday worlds of auld. Now you've probably wondered where holidays come from. If you haven't I'd say it's time you begun."

A 75-minute charmer of a motion picture that transcends age, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas should ... read more

Review of The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas represents what one might argue to be the most famous and well known stopmotion film of all time. It's one of the few films that generally receive annual viewings, and it's often raved as Tim Burton's best film (despite actually being directed by Henry Selick). Even if this is a case of style over substance, I couldn't help but be enchanted by this visually stunning ... read more

Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my top movies ever. Just the the whole plotline is so filpin' sweet! Think about it, mixing the two most opposite holidays ever to create a twisted version of one holiday. Also the wonderful vision of Tim Burton and Henry Selick really pulled all of Tim's ideas into the sweetest movie ever! Disneyland was so inspired by the movie they even created a ride for it... read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1990's) (91 movies items)

" Notes: I have seen this movie so many times, I even saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released and it has never lost its appeal. Basically, it is a gorgeous picture at the same time dark and bleak but also joyful and charming. However, it is slightly annoying that Tim Burton got most of the credit concerning this picture when in fact, Henry Selick is the one who actually directed the whole thing. Eventually, in my opinion, Henry Selick is the one responsible for his greatne"

You know......for kids! (162 movies items)

"It has Santa in the film! But however, he gets kidnapped! By a ghost full of bugs! The songs are great and so is the animation, but the film is kind of like one big long scary, carnival ride. Fun, but the little ones, might get kind of freaked out, while watching the movie."

" - Rewatched Obligatory viewing in October. It's one of my favorite films. Gorgeous stop-motion animation. Beautifully detailed and well-crafted characters that are put into a wonderfully weird world, which is spun around an amusing and charming story. A story that manages to be as entertaining as it is emotionally genuine."
