    I Was Waiting For This One When It Came Out

    I watch this classic every year around halloween and around christmas, also a few more times along with a handfull of other favourite, many by Danny Elfman and Tim Burton. One of the best artistic teams in modern culture I say. I like how everyone is such a big fan of the...

    This movie is still my favorite

    since I saw it. 'What's This' is still my favorite song. Jack is still my favorite character. And it combines my first and third favorite holiday, while referencing other ones. If I could, I would turn myself into Jack and live like him for the rest of my life here, or at least...

    I Love This Movie

    Has anyone not seen this movie by now, seriously? it's one of the greatest animations of all time. It's got a great storyline, some amazing music, it's made by Tim Burton and I do believe it has music by Danny Elfman. Hands down it's an amazing film.

    A Masterpiece!

    The animation is amazing and I love the story - particularly the scenes when Jack is trying to work out what Christmas is about. All the characters are great but particularly Jack and Sally. Watching him realise he loves her at the end *sigh* it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy...

    Love It

    I love this movie.   Tim Burton is brilliant.  I love the art and the animation, the witty little sight gags, the story itself.

    And It Wasn't the Movie

    Some things aren’t just so damn unpretty.  Some things are just plain Ugly – like bad Christmas sweaters.  Maybe it’s the area where I live, but I live here and I don’t wear bad Christmas sweaters.   I go through the mall and I’m...

    I have always loved this movie. I actually have the original one in that big tape box it came out in and I watch it all the time. I love it. I know all of the songs. I sing the songs with the movie when I watch it (so does my best friend, who watches it with me). I always kind of...

    The Nightmare Before Christmas is officially the best movie in the world. It's sweet, funny, romantic, dark and its a musical. Could you ask for better?? I watch it at least once a day, it makes me happy. I know every word to the soundtrack and am now wearing a Jack and Sally...

    Everybody Scream! Everybody Scream!

    This came out when I was in my early teens.  I was going through a phase when I was too old to watch cartoons, so I skipped it until I ended up watching it with my young cousins.  I ended up loving it.  I watched the movie so many times, I had...

    Jack the Pumpkin King

    I came across this movie completly by accident - its probably not the sort of thing I would have got out from the video store - but it was just on one night so I watched it.  And loved it.  And now watch it pretty much every Christmas. I was always quite scared by the...

    I Love It.

    I love the Nightmare Before Christmas, but i think i like the charaacters more than the actual movie. My favorite characters are Jack Skellington and Sally. I think they're just so great. If you ask anyone of my family, they'll probably tell you that jack & sally are my favorite...

    Of Course I Love it!

    I was in love with Jack, well meaning but bumbling.  Universally loved and still somehow alone. For me Jack was a deep character and he was amazing. I wanted to BE sally for similar reasons, not just because her and jack were a thing.  But she was smart, and quick...

    I saw NBC for the first time

    when it came out in '93. I can't describe how much I loved it. Then I saw Addams Family Values. Best. Halloween. Ever.

    Christmas Eve Tradition

    The animation in this film is so beautiful, the symbolism and imagery- the tale itself. I have to watch it every Christmas Eve, this and the British animation, The Snowman - it is what makes that sense of Christmas to me, as am always at my parents house over the three days...

    I Love The Nightmare Before Christmas

    I just love stop-motion animation, and The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my absolute favourite movies of all time. It's fantastic! It has a great story, brilliant characters, a wicked, kooky visual style and fantastic songs -- it's all-around wonderful. I thought the...

    I just saw it for the the first time

    because my family is really religious and never let me watch it as a child *eye roll*, and can I just say, this movie is amazing. And to be honest, the songs are even better in French.

    What A Cool Movie

    I asked my roommate to look for the old video of ours and he could not find it. It's so funny. I think I like Halloween town better than Christmas land; Halloween has been more of my favorite holiday.

    Oh Man.

    I absolutely love Tim Burton in the straightest way possible.  This tops the list as my all time favorite movie!  Now if they could only make it on blu-ray... we'd be in business :)
