Brilliant is the only word to describe this film. This is one of my favorite animated films, although not as great as the Toy Story trilogy. This film proves that an animated film can go a long way, or at least further than Space Chimps and The Wild, shame.....

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a great movie. This might not look like a movie for you but I have to say that it is one of the best animated movies I have ever seen. It is filled with many songs that made me go get the soundtrack right away. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a must-see movie.
