As fresh, engaging and original as it was when it was first released over 15 years ago, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is a showcase not just for the creative work of Mr Burton himself, but also the directorial genius of Henry Selick. For while it’s often assumed that Burton directed the film, it’s actually Selick behind the camera calling the shots. The same Henry Selick, incidentally, who directed the equally stunning Coraline more recently. That’s a film worth picking up too.
But it’s, with some justification, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas for which he’s best known. It almost feels like a timeless tale already, as Jack Skellington, bored of arranging his usual successful Halloween, has a stab at Christmas instead. As you might expect, things don’t go quite to plan, which gives Selick and Burton the chance to introduce a macabre set of terrific characters. And, set to some superb music from Danny Elfman, one of the more unusual festive fairytales goes about its business.
And for such a visually striking film, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas benefits heavily from high definition. The attention to detail with the stop motion animation is gloriously highlighted here, and with Elfman’s aforementioned music eating up the breadth of the soundstage afforded by Blu-ray, it’s a genuine home cinema treat. It’s also the kind of film that, as the past 15 years have proven, is set to be spun again and again. And this Blu-ray edition is unquestionably the best version of it you can have in your home. Whether you find it a Halloween or a Christmas treat, it’s strongly recommended. --Jon Foster --This text refers to the DVD edition.See all Product Description

What a coincidence that it's been released just before Halloween! Having said that it works as a Christmas movie too as the people of Christmas Town are also involved, though I won't say any more as I don't want to give the story away for those that don't know it...
If you haven't seen it and like animated movies this one is a classic and should be in your collection; it is truly both original and magical. Enjoy!
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.
The basic story is Jack Skellington (the king mentioned above) becomes disenchanted with life in halloween town and discovers that there are other towns based on other holidays. He swiftly gets the idea that he would make an ideal Santa Claus and abducts him whilst he sets all the halloween nightmares to work making christmas toys...
The quality of the animation is superb, and the songs carry just the amount of menace (remember we are looking at halloween characters singing songs so menace is the right word) and are well composed.
This is the type of film that you can watch time and time again - but don't let really small children (I have a 4 year old daughter) anywhere near it - it would frighten the socks off them.
It has all the darkness you would expect from a story by Tim Burton and I recommend it to you. 10/10
The main premise is that, whether we know it or not, all holidays are planned in advance in diverse special towns. "The Nightmare Before Christmas" takes place in one of those towns, Halloweentown, that is the place where Halloween is planned each year. Te main responsible of that planning is Jack Skellington, also called the King of Halloween. However, not many know that Jack is bored to death of always doing the same thing. Jack knows he is missing something, but has no idea whatsoever of what that is. Of course, everything changes when Jack discovers Christmastown, the town where (of course) Christmas is planned. For Jack, Christmas is something totally new, and foreign. All the same, he falls in love with it, and has a "brilliant" idea: to kidnap Santa Claus, and to hijack Christmas.
Needless to say, things don't go smoothly, but that is a big part of the fun of watching this movie. Confusions abound when Jack and all his friends of Halloweentown try to plan Christmas for the very first time, and the result is extremely entertaining. That is specially true if you are bored of classic Christmas films that end up saying the same things all over again. This is certainly not the case in this animated film :)
All in all, I think you are highly likely to enjoy this movie. Notwithstanding that, I don't recommend "The Nightmare Before Christmas" for young children, due to the fact that some of the scenes might scare them a little. Having said that, I think that this film is a treat you are going to enjoy, and thus I highly recommend it...
