    Saw this movie the other day and I have to say it was fantastic. If you liked Nightmare Before Christmas chances are good you'll like this, though they're not really the same movie. It doesn't have the overbearing gothy aesthetic that Nightmare did, but it's definitely got a cool dark tone to it, despite being kid-friendly. I'm a little upset that They Might Be Giants only had one song in the movie, but the song was pretty kick ass so I'll forgive it.

    Oh, and if you have the chance to see it in 3D, do it. The movie did some really cool things with the 3D without going overboard and looking retarded.

    i'm glad to hear that question is could you tell if it was truly stop-motion animation like Nightmare or was it CGI stop-motion like in Flushed Away?

    I'm pretty certain it was CGI. It was just far too fluid to be true stop motion. They did do a good job of capturing the clay-mation aesthetic, though.

    i thought it might've been CGI. Shame as stop-motion is becoming a lost art.

    i'm gonna try to see this, love this kind of stuff and the story looks interesting.

    I thought it was really good. I personally liked it better than Nightmare Before Christmas. The story was very Lovecraftian in nature as well.

    I can't find anything to even hint that it might be CGI.

    also, I'm totally watching this Wednesday when I have the chance.

    Cait Oh, poppycock.

    I really want to see this movie. I can't give you an opinion now, because I haven't yet, but it looks really cool.

    Ah, so they used CGI to cover up imperfections. That makes sense as to why it looked so smooth compared to other stop motion.

    Tell him that the 3D really kicks ass, because it really does.
