Yeah... you should see that as a positive thing, dudette

I've also seen The Nightmare Before Christmas recently for the first time (2 months ago), and I was immediately sold to it... The design, animation, music, mood...! Just all awesome...!! That's also why I watched it 'then-a-days' about every day (something I hadn't done since the Lion King... some 10 years back )

Nightmare Before Xmas rulezzz my (our?) world!

It must be an artist thing to appreciate Tim Burton movies. My mom and dad did not like Nightmare Before Christmas.

you've gotta buy it on DVD for all the cool extras. If the film inspired you then you ain't seen nothing till you've seen Vincent, one of his early stop motion shorts with Vincent Price narrating....it's fantastic! plus all the behind the scenes stuff. Well worth the low asking price on Amazon.


nice pic by the way

Ugh, this is so frustrating! My mom disliked that movie so much she doesn't even want me to buy the soundtrack! And I so want it...I want the Beetlejuice soundtrack too, she'd rather I have that one. :/

My gosh, it's my money for crying out loud. *huff*

Well... Maybe you're right that just and only artists (and other creative people ) like the movie... After seeing the movie for the first time, I was veeeeery enthousiast about it (wanted to watch it again right after the end credits ), but my dad & sister veeery disliked the movie...

By the way that's something I have with allot movies: I just and only watch 'good' movies, often 'psychological' stuff, but with some imagination in it ('Big Fish', but also 'The Green Mile', 'City of Angels' and so). And 'those un-creative people' always call it 'stupid unrealistic rare movies'.... To me that are the only movies... I don't watch bad stuff...

And about the soundtrack... well... In mý eyes the soundtrack is also damn very nice! Good luck on convincing your parents/mother about the 'quality' of it!

Greeetz,
Gijs

YES!! I just discovered a really cool picture on the Beetlejuice CD. I can play the music only (no dialogue), and have the TV off. So I can do homework or paint and listen to the music too. Hehehe! *feels smart*

I still might buy the soundtrack anyway.

Well yah I love it too, but it has been my experience that moments of inspiration like that only come once and awhile. While the movie may have kick started it, its not likey to give you the same experience the second time.
 
Old 05 May 2005   #26
Alright, alright. As much as I loved watching Nightmare Before Christmas, I have to admit that Beetlejuice is still my favorite. I want to watch it all the time now, haha!

"Help me! This is my art, and it is dangerous! Do you think I want to die like this?" *laughs*

One shouldn’t even get me started on this movie.

I didn’t catch it in the movies. I remember wanting to go but none of my friends felt up to it. Then I rented it and I watched it, and I loved it more than I have ever loved any movie before or since. I have watched no other movie as many times (probably about 50+ by now) and there is very little that inspires me so much as it does.

The music is flawless and stirring. I’d like to mention ‘Poor Jack’, ‘Kidnap the Sandy Claws’ and ‘Town Meeting Song’ in particular – and having said that, yes, Tim Burton is a genius but when he is teamed up with Danny Elfman, he kicks so much arse that it’s not even funny.

The colours, the designs, and the feel of the movie just get to me. While I am wholly aware of Tim Burton not being the actual director of this awesome movie, I still feel that it is completely him, like a distilled piece of his inspiration, shared with the world. Am I sounding creepy yet?

No, I’m not a desperate fan girl who can’t tell when her favourite artist messes something up – I wasn’t very fond of Planet of the Apes and while I enjoy Mars Attacks, I wouldn’t refer to it as one of my favourite movies. But when Tim Burton gets it right, he gets it right like no one else. On the top list of my most inspirational movies to watch when I can’t paint, there are at least five that are his.

Does it make me want to paint? Hell yea. I often have it running in the background while I'm working on something.

I have a feeling I'm not the only one who can't wait for his Corpse Bride

Haha, I actually accidently saw Mars Attack a couple years ago at a hotel. I was out of town for a competition, and alone in the room. Didn't have anything better to do, so I watched it. I wasn't taken by it, but I did think it was absolutely hilarious just because it was so stupid, and that there were actors in there that I knew very well. I don't know I have mixed feelings about that movie.

I cannot wait for Corpse Bride though. I'd probably have to go with a friend when it comes out though.

About Planet of the Apes; I thought the movie was going pretty good, had nice visual effects and a good storyline...until the end, which I did NOT like and it just totally ruined the movie. Ah well, can't have them all. I do like the music though.
