How many of you absolutely love Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas?” Yeah, I figured you did. What a classic! Jack, with his scary, sweet sincerity…pretty pining Sally…the befuddled Mayor…dreadful Oogie…and the incredible songs and visuals…there is no other movie like it.
And sure, you can watch it around Christmas time, but really — optimal viewing occurs during the week before Halloween (that’s now, people!). And here’s the really cool part: it’s been re-released to theatres…in 3-D!
I checked it out on Monday and was completely awed. Unlike some of the cheesier 3-D movies from decades past, this really popped — as magical as the movie is, it is even *more* so now! So if the weather is too cold/wet/snowy this weekend to enjoy the cornfield maze, do yourself and the kids a favor and see it!
It’s playing at our Marketplace multiplex, but if you don’t get there soon, you’ll have to wait until next year!
