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.
Hoping to have a festive night watching films to keep us excited for Christmas, this turned into a nightmare before Christmas. My hopes were raised by learning that it's a Tim Burton film, the man behind "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (2005). My hopes were shattered by seeing this dreadful film. Either I just wasn't in the mood for this film, or it really was as boring and pointless as I thought. I'd say it's a little more Halloween than Christmas, but it didn't dampen my Christmas spirit. I just shook it off as an hour and 13 minutes I will never get back.
A fantastic movie that is extremely well made for a stop motion. It's the perfect mix of creepy yet sweet.
Painstakingly and meticulously crafted, "The Nightmare Before Christmas" is a beautiful and wonderful film from start to finish.
‘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.
The stop motion animation is gorgeous. The world is very detailed and unique. The music is great and most songs are very catchy. I’m still not sure if this is more of a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie, either way it's great.
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.
A little dated now perhaps, though the film's theme is something Hollywood should dwell upon. Jack Skellington tries to recreate Christmas by mixing all the right ingredients, but never quite finds the magic. The same is true of many Christmas movies, many of which can't quite find the perfect formula. So, my question is this. Is there a perfect Christmas movie? I have yet to find it, but like Santa himself, perhaps it's quite elusive!
i don't like this film so much, because of the grotesque way in which the characters have been drawn. I also didn't appreciate the songs, that where really repetitive and without great performances. But this is only my opinion, of course.
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.
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
