My favorite movie of all time, no joke.


If you were to ask me any time day or night what my favorite movie of all time is, thats so easy, ask me my second favorite movie and I may give you six diffrent answers but the favorite always holds strong. I've had a long term love affair with Nightmare Before Christmas since days after its release. It's no secret that Tim Burtan is my personal hero when it comes to films but there is just nothing.. and I do mean NOTHING that even comes close to comparing Nightmare Before Christmas .

When the new collector's edition arrived you might have thought I had won the lottery the way I squealed with glee. It had me at "hello" when it comes to the new case with the great 3D rendition of Jack's face, almost glowing metallic swirls, and the fact that the DVD comes with its own digital copy which you can copy direction onto your computer to watch or to transfer to your mobile device the only real issue I have with it is that the activation code can only be used once and my concern is now that I have it on my hard drive what happens if my computer crashes or I accidentally delete it. It seems a bit fair if your paying for the collectors edition that you should only be able to download the movie once from the disc.

Past that this is thus far the best edition to the Nightmare Before Christmas dvd release I have seen, and yes I own them all, you might be curious why I would even want another copy of Nightmare Before Christmas as well its the same movie after all. Well honestly the real value to these new bigger and better collector editions is in the "extras" This particular set gives us an awesome mansion tour hosted by Jack, a new uncut version of the film Frankenweenie, a whole second movie in itself, and a film short Vincent both of which alone are worth the purchase of the DVD.




Seriously though if there has ever been a moment where I wanted a Blue-Ray DVD player more than anything its right now. I would LOVE to see this set on Blue-Ray. *grumble*.

Oh my goodness, I'd love to win this for my husband. Nightmare is one of his favorite movies of all time, too. It's hard to choose my favorite Tim Burton film! I think I'd have to go with Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. It's a classic.

Rebecca said...

This is also one of my favorite movies of all time! Edward Scissorhands is also very good :D

My favorite Tim Burton film is probably...hmm....I really love his version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I think it was a lot more creepier and interesting, and Johnny Depp made a great Wonka!

My favorite Tim Burton movie other than Nightmare Before Christmas is Corpse Bride. I am a huge fan of his stop-motion films. Corpse Bride was a fantastic film, I loved it.

I also am a huge Nightmare Before Christmas fan, have been since its original release. I have an extensive Nightmare Before Christmas figurine, snowglobe and plush toy collection that would blow your mind.

We really enjoy ALL of Tim Burton's films. I wish my comment could be a little unique compared to what has already been said. However, if I had to pick only one it would be Beetlejuice , I love the scene when they are throwing the dinner party. When their bodies are taken over and start singing and 'try' to dance to Day-O.

I love many of Burton's films, but I think Mars Attack! is my favorite (after Nightmare Before Christmas, of course). I loved the cheese-factor of that film and how many big name stars were in it.
