    "The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Tim Burton classic. It manages to be morbid and funny at the same time, making it appropriate for both kids and adults. I first watched this movie when I was a kid, and I've loved it ever since; I watch it every year! The story is off-the-wall, and it really holds up to the test of time. The animation used for the film is so unique and makes watching it even more enjoyable."

    "Arguably one of the most underrated Disney movies of all time! While people were arguing about stupid crap like which Disney movie is better between Frozen and Moana, I've been watching this, with tears down my eyes, might I add, because it keeps being forgotten by "hardcore Disney fans" in favor or the newer movies. Plus, the OST is awesome as hell!"
