Christmas films don't come any better than this., 14 Nov. 2003
The Nightmare Before Christmas is a beautiful film for all year round. Jack Skellington, the main character is adorable. Getting sick of his "Pumpkin King" crown, he one day stumbles upon Christmastown, from which he later decides to kidnap Santa, whilst taking over his job to give presents (and scares) to children all over the world.
With Burton's own unique twist, and Elfman's musical stylings, it's fresh (even though the film is 10 years old), completely original, and unlike any other christmas film you are ever likely to see.
Plus, you get Vincent, a short, 5 minute homage to Burton's childhood hero, Vincent Price (gorgeous in everyway and truely does deserve a disk of it's own) and Frankenweenie (another of Burton's early films).
If you're an avid Tim Burton fan, like myself.. you'll love it, and even if you're not.. you'll love it still.
Definately worth every penny.
