“Say it once, say it twice, take a chance and roll the dice. Ride with the moon in the dead of night.'”
As I sit here and watch The Nightmare Before Christmas (Selick, 1993) I think of how much creativity and artwork must have gone into this beautiful film. It’s a Tim Burton designed creation, and in no means is it any less than any other Burton designed film. The strangely obscure masterpiece is one that is filled with love and music, and without being fooled by the title, and by me watching it in summer, it really is a lovely Halloween/Christmas film that warms the soul.
This film is so poetic in how it tells the epic love story of Jack and Sally, and it makes me want to be a part of the story as much as i can. Truth is, we are part of this story, because for some of us, it’s Halloween everyday isn’t it? The truth is, Jack is taking a risk in claiming Christmas but he’s doing it because it feels right, and that’s all you can do in this life, take risks because you feel like it’s the right thing to do. If you make a mistake then pick yourself up and dust yourself off, buttercup. You will be fine.
BUT ENOUGH OF THIS EMOTION, I must bid thee farewell, as my movie awaits. And for all the people that are reading this, including you honey, always trust yourself to do the right thing, because no matter what, you will be okay. I promise.
Live long and prosper.
