Had to have this movie for our annual halloween movie watching tradition. This movie confuses people because the title makes you think of Christmas but our family very much likes watching the Pumpkin King do his thing around Halloween. It's a great Tim Burton film. My 10 year old loves this movie. Be warned there might be some younger kids that get freaked out by some of the nasty halloween monsters. My daughter has liked this movie since she was about 6 years old if that helps at all. This is a must have in your collection even if you don't have kids.

Missing a line in the dialogue
Verified purchase
So there’s a problem with the one I received... it’s missing a whole line in the song “This is Halloween” at the beginning of the moving. “I am the ‘who’ in the call ‘who’s there?’ I am the wind blowing through your hair.” This whole line is not in the movie for some strange reason. I’m not sure how this can happen, and I noticed immediately. I bought this movie in September but just now got around to actually watching it(we’ve seen it hundreds of times.)

A True Masterpiece
Verified purchase
This one of my favorite movies. It has an awesome romance. It has one of the toughest and most lovable female leads to grace the screen in Sally. In Jack we have a classic mid-life crisis, a fall from grace, and a reinvention. Jack's voyage of self discovery draws us in almost tragically. With a 76 minute run time, every detail in every screen is used and that economy truly enhances the experience. The Two Faced Politician/Mayor is an example of the attention paid to detail here as the fantasy is most effective when mirroring reality.

If you have to limit your film library to a dozen titles--The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) would be a worthy entry. In my many watchings it has managed to stay fresh and relevant.
