You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
Tired of scaring humans every October 31 with the same old bag of tricks, Jack Skellington, the spindly king of Halloween Town, kidnaps Santa Claus and plans to deliver shrunken heads and other ghoulish gifts to children on Christmas morning. But as Christmas approaches, Jack's rag-doll girlfriend, Sally, tries to foil his misguided plans.
when he's over 8ft 😩😩😩👅👅👅💦💦💦
i was so high that i thought the trap music that the neighbors were blasting was part of the movie. like i truly believed i was watching a weird remixed trap version of the nightmare before christmas
CW: bugs, violence
It seems pointless to try to explain the aesthetic of this, given how many of you have already seen it and how many more have seen the imagery from it. Still, the strength of this film is entirely in what it looks and sounds like; the story is irrelevant. The mixture of necrotic waste and Disney whimsy, of creepy crawling eeriness and melancholy beauty is Burton's finest contribution to the medium, an onslaught that makes Edward Scissorhands seem restrained. It's in the setting design, from the forlorn and haunted feeling of the forest to the cold, ancient emptiness of the doctor's house to the toy box feeling of the Christmas segments. It's in the character design, from…
There’s a clever marketing strategy behind The Nightmare Before Christmas as it’s essentially two holiday films in one and pretty much guarantees a surge in interest during the months of October and December. Although the film was conceived by gothic master Tim Burton, it could so easily have been a mediocre money-maker, as are many films with seasonal themes, but it was clearly made with love and affection and is a classic because of it.
The novelty of claymation has enough appeal in itself. The amount of time and effort that goes into each individual shot is something that can barely be comprehended considering how speedily a computer can construct an animated sequence now. Everyone involved in this project isn’t…
Film #36 of Project 90
”Life’s no fun without a good scare!”
Creativity is leaking out of every frame of this visually stunning little animation, the way Henry Selick and his team of artists use the lovely stop-motion technique, colors, lights and revolutionary effects to bring an utterly crazy, dark and scary world to life can only be described by the word delightful, with their vision and matchless visual innovation they make The Nightmare Before Christmas an unforgettable feast for eyes. Story’s general lack of surprise may slow down the film a little bit but Danny Elfman’s score, a town full of exquisite characters (the guy with the ax in his head, the vampires and the hanged skeletons are just…
Life's no fun without a good scare.
Forever a favorite of those goth kids who smoked cigarettes during wood shop class, The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of those weird little cult films that despite the "cult" description, it would seem that just about every person on Earth has seen or at least heard of. Which is why I've always been kind of afraid to admit I had never seen this film until the other night. You never know where those angry hipsters could be listening. Hiding behind a tree in the park. Rummaging through garbage around the corner.
Halloween has and forever will be my favorite holiday, so the fact that I am only just now watching this film…
Compared to the wave of artisinal stop-motion animated features that were largely enabled by its success, the technique is certainly on the basic side, though Henry Selick's ambitions in testing the limits of the medium are already in plain sight. But to hell with technique. This is pure magic, with traditional Christmas themes given a beautiful Gothic makeover by the handsomely physical Tim Burton-derived design of macabre toys coming to life to perform what amounts to a cantata by Danny Elfman. An enormously easy world to get lost in.
An absolute classic that will hopefully played forever. Such a shame that it is now thought of more of a girls film because the filmmaking & animation is out of this world.
Zelfs in het Nederlands erg te genieten. De kinderen hebben er enorm van genoten.
A Halloween/Christmas classic. Rewatch value.
So glad they've never had the gall to sequelize this sucker.
My University showed this and "Edward Scissorhands" in a double feature tonight. A great night of movies if ever there was one.
As a kid I was frightened easily. The reason that's important to say right off the bat is because it makes no sense, then, that all my favorite things growing up involved, in some fashion, exploring and playing with the concept of fear or were darker than most kids' entertainment tended to be in some way.
I LOVED the transformation scene in "Pinocchio" (if you don't remember what I'm talking about, just rack your brain for a second and some repressed childhood memory of seeing that scene for the first time is sure to come flooding back to…
Visually this film is stunning. I love stop motion films for reasons like this. I also enjoy the music thought, but I get frustrated because I never know if this is a Christmas movie or Halloween movie
The dawn of Tim Burton's film career, and what a start it was. It is a musical, but it is very well done
If you're feeling overwhelmed, but still want to squeeze a film into your daily routine, this list is made for…
Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of hight quality "short" films. Easy…
