The Nightmare before Christmas

Who can resist the wonderful world of Tim Burton? Not I. This time he tricks or treats us to the magic of stop-motion. Technology has come a long way since the days of Ray Harryhausen. I used to sit and wait for those magical moments to appear, but nowadays you can't afford to turn your eyes away from the screen for a millisecond.

Of course, don't forget it took two years of very hard work to put this baby together. Henry Selick has taken the role of director with Tim Burton's brainchild. Danny Elfman's score is such fun to follow as we merrily (?) follow pilgrim Jack Skellington's progress.

Tim is so full of surprises. What will Batman do without him?
