This is an oldie but a goody. It is a childern's movie about a skeleton who takes over chirstmas. I loved this movie when I first seen it and my childern enjoy it even today. My son is going as the Pumpkin King for Halloween this year. He was Skeleton Jack two years ago. I just loves the movie and I made all the characters out of paper and the towns so he can play with them. We don't have many movies in the house that we keep as a collection but this is definetly one of them. Have you seen it? Do you like it? If not it is a nice movie that the whole family could enjoy.

That's so funny you brought this up. Our family was just discussing this movie last night. LOL! We don't own this one, but I am going to rent it, probably rent it this weekend. Make sure you have pics of your son as the pumpkin king. I bet he'll be really cute! :)

I'm not sure if someone really stole it =P lol. One of my nieces may have taken it home with them (they come over everyday). They are allowed to borrow movies from us, but maybe they just forgot about this one...they are just 4 and 6 lol. Maybe next time I go to their house I'll snoop around for it! =P

Ravenladyj I think you are my twin. LOL Well in movie tastes anyways HEHE Rocky is up there as my number 1 favorite too. Have you gone to the live shows of it? My sister did a bunch of times when she was in T.O. I was so jealous of her. I would have loved to seen it live. Yeah I think Corpse Bride is claymation too.

I saw the movie. I heard the makers of the movie had to work really hard on that movie. After all it is clay animation. I think it is a stop and play animation. It must of took a lot of people and a lot of time to complete that movie.

I think it took over 3 years to do it but I am not sure. It took them a week to do one minutes worth of the film. It was very difficult to do I bet but it paid off.

It is my 13 year olds top most favorite movie. I have to say that I do not enjoy it to much but he is crazy about it. I did however like the Corpse Bride, and I purchased that DVD for my grand daughter who is 4 and her Name is Emily also. But yes, The nightmare Before Christmas gets a lot of play time at my house.

I love this movie. I think it, along with several other of Tim Burton's movies, is amazing that the whole thing is done in claymation. I love all the characters even the Oogie Boogie Man LOL I know there is Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride. I believe there is also one called Vincent although I haven't seen it yet. Tim Burton is truly gifted when it comes to these claymation movies. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I really enjoy watching this movie. It is a good oldie. I must admit that I haven't seen it in a while, but my fiance got it for me recently and plan on watching it, soon hopefully. It is certainly a movie that I plan on keeping and watching many, many times.

I absolutely love this movie. My husband bought me the special edition collector's dvd a few years ago for christmas. I was completely stoked. Well, he also ended up buying me a tin lunchbox that had a scene from the movie on it, because I collect them. :) This movie is a great one that you can watch over and over again, believe me, I have. lol. I think my huband and I may go as Jack and Sally this year for Halloween if we end up going to any Halloween parties.
