Phil's Quick Capsule Review

Blog: The Nightmare Before Christmas – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Be it Tim Burton’s or Henry Selick’s  TNMBC (and for the record writer, producer and ideas man Burton has both his style and sensibility plastered all over this film), now in it’s 21st year since release the film hasn’t missed a beat in the interviewing years.  Okay so the technology has improved (just witness the quantum advance of The Boxtroll’s for example) but what still makes this film a class act is the collection of great songs, memorable characters and perverse humour that is seen so rarely in cinema these days.  It also shows just how far Burton has fallen since his 90’s heyday.

Best Bit: What’s this?
