The Nightmare Before Christmas

I am not sure if this can accurately be labeled a Christmas movie, but it falls somewhere between Halloween and Noel, so it qualifies. I have only seen this a couple of times, but I like it. Danny Elfman and Tim Burton make a really great team. I like the characters, the animation, and of course, the songs. Jack Skellington is the successful and delightfully frightful Pumpkin King. But after his latest Halloween, he feels a kind of emptiness that only Christmas can cure. Or so he believes. This film is definitely worth trying at least once.
