9/10 Beer Cans

Terry: ” This movie is a classic and a definite must watch. I showed it to my 2 year old nephew this Christmas and he loved it too! It’s a timeless masterpiece and one of the most iconic stop-motion animated films of all time. This is Tim Burton in his prime. The songs will have you sing along, they’re fun, catchy, and clever. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a film that you’ll watch over and over and it’ll never get old. LOVED IT!”

Adrian: ” This was actually the first time I’ve watch The Nightmare Before Christmas. My mom never let me watch it as a kid cause she thought it would ruin my life…..but now I feel like I’ve missed out! I can finally relate to all those goth kids at school LOL! The movie was pretty dark for a kids movie but it was AWESOME! I would definitely recommend The Nightmare Before Christmas. They should make a Broadway musical for it!!!!”

Jordan: ” The Nightmare Before Christmas is my favorite Tim Burton film and my favorite animated film. It was a huge inspiration for me as a filmmaker and I still identify with this movie. I even got Jack Skellington tattooed on my leg! I’m a HUGE fan. Hands down the best Christmas/Halloween movie. You’d expect Tim Burton to come out with a twisted kids movie and he did! I’ve watched a ton of behind the scenes footage for this film too and I’m incredibly impressed. It is literally sooooo much work! It’s insane! But they pulled it off and made a masterpiece.”
