Tim Burtons's The Nightmare Before Christmas (1992) Film Review. Directed by Henry Sellleck. Distributed by Walt Disney.
The absolute hybred film to enjoy either at Halloween or even Christmas, the absolutely sublime The Nightmare Before Christmas. With the king of Halloween town Jack Skellington,who is bored of the same thing every year and longs for something new. With walks into the forest to see trees marked with other traditions, such as Thanksgiving, Easter,Valentine's, and Christmas. He only wishes he could try something new. With pressures from the towns mayor,and townsfolk to better next Halloween. Is where he finally takes the plunge and goes to Christmas land where everying is jolly,happy,festive,its snowing constantly with busy Elves working ,and twinkling fairy lights everywhere. Jack loves it and sets out a plan to kidnap Father Christmas,and take over the festive traditions. Yes this film is a classic,produced by Tim Burton,and Directed by Henry Selleck. And a wonderful performance by Danny Elfman,as Jack Skellington,who sings and acts wonderfully.as well as writing the songs and soundtrack. It was at the time one of a kind,to use old fashioned Stop Motion Animation,a sly wink to Ray Harryhausen for his fantastic work over the years. Although this film. Is a family film it still has its moments of very gothic,and scary imagery,with a very scary Mr Boogie the Bogeyman. An absolute classic without doubt,with great songs,great visuals,a wonderful love story between Jack and Sally,and the most famous Greyhound in Nero his trusty Dog.
I came across this trailer on YouTube yesterday, and it is doing the rounds again on social media, a trailer first showing in 2015, that got everyone talking " is this for real" " this can not be a film can it?" As it turns out no, it is a trailer that is well made, but certainly is not going to be a film anytime soon.
A one joke trailer about a randy ghost intent on jerking men off, using handjobs, I'm surprised the tag line wasn't "Cumming soon".
This was obviously made by men with a running narrative that women cannot give a decent handjob, and having them do the deed is worse than death, instead you have a ghost who wants to jerk all men to death.
It is as awful as you'd expect it to be, but I still found myself chuckle a few times, it is rude, crude, insinuating, and in fairness harmless fun, a film if made I would actually probably watch, it certainly looks better than the recent Cabin Fever, Evil Dead 2013.
Tree is about to have a very bad day, again, and again and again.
College Grad Tree, a self centred bitch, who you take an instant dislike to, who is foul to everyone.
Treats everyone like dirt, then wonders why someone would want her dead. With a groundhog Day loop thing going on every time she is murdered she has to live through the same Monday the 18th, until she can find out her wants her dead, solve her own murder, and maybe become a better person in the mean time.The thing is I really wanted to hate this movie, but I couldn't, because of the performance from Jessica Rothe as Tree, in her first scream queen role, starring previously in La La Land, and Netflix's Parallels.
She is so likeable and believable in the role, although playing the bitch perfectly, she is deep down a damaged soul, still mourning the death of her mother, and her grief is her anger towards fellow People.
With some inventive kills, and no matter what Tree does, the day always ends in her death, with …
A film that strangely has been long forgotten, from 1980, and a film that has no mention about any remake or reboot. That is how this good film has been left on the shelf, compared to other slashers of that decade. Strange as it has possibly the best onscreen kills, with amazing practical effects from Gore master Tom Savini.
A jilted soldier returns home from world war 2, hearing just before that his girlfriend has replaced him with another man. At the graduation ball of 1945, Rosemary is brutally slain alongside her new boyfriend. Shocking the town, that another ball has been postponed for 35 years. It is now 1980 the ball has been agreed once more, and the jilted soldier is not happy and decides to slay the party goers once more.
Formally known as the Prowler especially in the States, but changed to Rosemary's Killer in the UK. The film apart from the great Gore effects is quite average though, and probably why it has never been remade. With the jilted soldier in…
