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

My Top 20 Halloween Favorites: Frankenstein (20 movies items)

"Full of the creative and scraggly type of characters that Tim Burton is known for, Dr. Finklestein is an amalgam of creator and creation as he seems to be a patchwork of both mad scientist and monster. Residing and working in a large gothic castle which incles a massive lab, filled with all the iconic equipment associated with Vitor Von, it's obvious that these are representative of Dr. Frankenstein himself (plus, the hame kinda give sit away...d'uh!). But, the fact that he has pale, dead like s"

" 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.

"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."
