Let's hope the next time Disney re-releases this on home video... they will include the 3D version.

completely remastered the film from the original source material so not only are you getting it in high def but you are getting the best possible copy. Plus Disney is including a digital copy so you can transfer it onto your PC or portable device as well,
| Original Score: 8/10

Burton says that he was impressed by the Blu-ray version because it 'brings out all the textures and nuances' of the artwork. And it's true. As good as the DVD looked, the Blu-ray captures the fidelity of details even in the murkiest scenes.

Leave it to Disney to bring a film back to life over and over again just to make a buck. Fortunately, Nightmare Before Christmas is good enough to withstand all of the reanimation.

Tim Burton`s skewered sensibility finds excellent expression through the masterful stop-motion of director Henry Selick. The songs and score by Danny Elfman are wonderful; the characters are engaging; the visuals are enthralling.

Before The Corpse Bride ever put on her wedding gown there was The Nightmare Before Christmas, a film years later still superior in every way.
