"They're busy throwing snowballs instead of throwing heads!"
Two of my favorite things! Halloween and awesome animation.Well, it's nearly all claymation. But that makes it even cooler. I admire the tireless effort that went into this movie. It really pays off in a big way.
I'm not usually one for musicals, having been scarred as a child by too much singin in the rain, but this movie doesn't bother me in the least. It fits.
The plot setup is, roughly, Jack Skellington is a figurehead on a world centered around Halloween. He grows weary of it and sets out, all melancholy. He travels to Christmas land, and brings the wonders of xmas back to his world. In the mean time, a zombie girl has the hots for him and an evil mysterious villan is stirring up trouble.
This movie is one of the most visually stunning I've ever seen. It is extrememly well directed and planned and acted and sung and everything. The plot is engaging.
It might be a tad elementary for some, but I found it extremely appealing to adults. And may not really be appropriate for young kids who scare easily.An excellent film. A must see for those who are interested in effect or animation or halloween. 5 entire sporks.
