The Nightmare Before Christmas In The Spotlight - A Feature By Jennifer Rhodes Cleere- PLUS Giveaway!
The nightmare before Christmas is a cult classic, it’s also a two holidays movie in one. The first time I heard about this movie I was skeptical, not going to lie, but after hearing Tim Burton was the man behind it, I decided to give it a try. And boy was I glad that I did!
If you’re like me you can watch holiday-themed movies year round, but if you’re in the other group, that’s OK to0, because like I said with this movie you can either watch at Halloween or Christmas. So you have double the opportunity!
This story starts off with our hero, and movie icon Jack Skellington, Pumpkin King of Halloween Town. He seems to become bored with the same old thing and wonders if there’s something more. I think we can all relate to that at some point of our lives. He ends up wandering into a forest, where he notices a few other holiday marked trees like Easter, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s, and of course Christmas. Going into the Christmas marked tree he’s shocked and confused, wondering what all is this?
The other major character is Sally. You can tell from the beginning, that she’s very into Jack but like most guys he’s totally oblivious at first. What would any movie be without a little drama to mix things up - and we get this when we find out that the man that Sally works for, is of course trying to take over Halloween Town! With jack preoccupied he finds the perfect opportunity and ..... oops no spoilers!
Now, I could keep going on an on about this movie but I’ll stop there, because if you haven't seen it yet I don’t want to ruin it. Trust me though when I say if you haven’t seen this movie, you need to check it out. I mean like now! ....... What are you waiting for? .......... Halloween?
