The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas

First time seeing this and I’m impressed by how it’s even more overrated than I always imagined. Incredibly cheap character design and stop-motion animation. Sub-“Addams Family” sight gags, minus the sense of whimsy but slathered with self-satisfaction. No real sense of rules or even stakes, just convenient plot twists that offer no real surprises. And also it’s a bore, just a tiresome bore.
