This will always be one of my #1 favorites! The songs and music are amazing, but I did not expect anything less of Danny Elfman. Summing up; I love Disney, I love stop-motion, I love 'monsters' with a kind heart, I love Tim Burton.. Can't get enough, this will live on forever.
What's this? WHAT'S THIS!!? People are giving this less then 10 stars???
The Nightmare Before Christmas was really good. I mean, the music and songs were fun and that's 90% of the movie, so it obviously must be pretty good at the very least, right? The stopmotion too was fantastic, and the premise was interesting enough for a Christmas movie. I probably would have loved it as a kid.
‘tis the season so I thought it was probably a good time to catch up with this one at last.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is an enchanting trifecta of Tim Burton’s signature Gothic style and wit, Henry Selick’s talent for stop-motion animation and Danny Elfman’s whimsical score.
Burton and Selick take us on an imaginative journey through Christmas and Halloween. The sets are fantastic and it’s clear that rather than just being a quick holiday money-grab, this is a film made with a lot of love and care. There’s nods to lots of films and styles here but I most appreciated the liberal borrowing from those creepy German expressionist silent pictures.
I’m not a fan of musicals though, and this is not really an exception. The tone and pace wore me out, and the film is only 70 minutes long!
Objectively, this is one of Burton’s better works (although he didn’t direct); I’m just not quite as personally enthralled by it as many seem to be.
Christmas and Halloween classic.
A fantastic movie that is extremely well made for a stop motion. It's the perfect mix of creepy yet sweet.
It's been awhile since I last saw this classic halloween film, and still creeps the shit out of me. Love the film. It never gets old. Great songs.
This is my favorite childhood movie. If they came out with a sequel, I would definitely go to the theater to see it.
I had to have watched this movie over 100 times as a kid.
kids will enjoy, but there is nothing for grown up.
Painstakingly and meticulously crafted, "The Nightmare Before Christmas" is a beautiful and wonderful film from start to finish.
I just discovered that Stop-motion and gothic themed movies are not my thing.
Although I did enjoy the music throughout the movie.
I might give this movie another shot but for now it sits at a 6 for me.
Not able to play :( #ShiftvW8
Note sure if Christmas or Halloween classic.
one of my all time favourites. Tim Burton at his best
