"'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."

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 B4 XMAS is the best

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

" Bored and unhappy with the life of being The Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington of Halloween Town, sets out to find something exciting. Jack discovers Christmas Town and takes it upon himself to take over the duties of Santa to deliver toys across the world to children. Directed by Henry Selnick, and featuring music composed by Danny Elfman, the film was based on ideas from Tim Burton, and as such it was the first time, outside of Frankenweenie, and was let go because of his “weird ideas”.

Happy Halloween/Christmas

“Verified Purchase

A lovely story, showing its age a little, and enjoyable.

Poor Jack just wants to do something nice and different. However, it turns bad but things are soon sorted.

Lovely story for Halloween or Christmas.” read more

Tis The Season For My Fave X-Mas Films & Specials (30 movies items)

"Let me start off by stating that I grew up at a time when animated features shown during prime-time were not the norm. Therefore, holiday specials like It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Santa Claus Is Coming Town were usually an event, not only in that they were a rare moment to watch a cartoon at night, but also because they enhanced the feeling of the holidays. Of which, my faves were, obviously, Halloween and Christmas (free candy and free presents, how can you beat that?). I remem"
