  1. I hate everyone who said this movie [stank] because it was SCARY! I watched this foul excuse for a film when I was seven or so and I wasn’t scared, nor was I last year when I borrowed it from a friend. It had aweful music, a [silly] plot, and [bad] voice acting. I had no idea the stitch-girl thing was talking. I thought she was just making a mumbling noise. Also, for all the people who said Santa got ‘tortured,’ please define the word “torture.” When I think of torture, I think of bleeding and screaming and death, not rubbing a feather to someones foot. I hated the Batman movies. I loathed Edward Scissor-Hands. I abhored the Nightmare Before Christmas. If you have an ounce of intelligence in your brain, then use it to NOT buy-or watch-this movie. In fact, find the nearest store with a copy of this movie and run, not walk, but RUN in the opposite direction.

  2. What a major disappointment for all true stop-motion animation fans. I actually feel sorry for those who unknowingly call this a “masterpiece”, or a “true classic”; they must be pretty desperate. -But it’s no wonder, really. If you’ve grown up with mostly cartoons and Disney movies, something “different” like this must seem like a revelation. -Come on, have you forgotten Ray Harryhausen or George Pal and his Puppetoons ?. Or people like the Quay Brothers, Jiri Trnka, Karel Zeman, Jan Svankmejer, etc., etc., etc. -They’re the true masters; able to be innovative, atmospheric and scary. “T.N.B.C.” lack all these important ingredients. But the biggest disappointment of all is the animation itself. The movie may look slick, perfect and sophisticated (and I’m sure they spent a million hours on it), but it’s too elaborate for its own good. I know stop-motion is all about detail, but if you spend too much time making the movements of the puppets quick and realistic you lose that special kind of magic so essential to this wonderful art-form. In my opinion stop-motion is supposed to be rather slow and jerky looking – that’s the very charm of it, for Christ sake !. Not necessarily dark and quirky, but it’s at its otherworldly best when the execution of it is kept simple and primitive. Check out some old classic fairytales Czech-style for much more effective examples. I really don’t know why they bothered, Burton & Co. -They might as well have used computers, because CGI is almost what it feels (and looks) like to me. Stop-motion is after all an oldfashioned kind of animation, and just about the only place left where ones fantasy can truly flourish and your patience (brain, really) is challenged. Unlike CGI, it forces you to use you imagination still, and not disconnect it. Concentration, please !.

  3. Why does “everyone” love this movie? It’s not that good. Not at all. I saw this when I was four and I absolutely hated it when I found out they kidnapped Santa Clause. The zombie girl taking her head off at one point in the movies was pretty gross too…yuck. I don’t reccomend this film.

  4. My Mom got me this movie when I was about 7 years old. And right
    from the begining I hated it. If you have even a little bit of
    sence you would NEVER EVER buy this movie, or even watch it.
    It runend the way I though about Christmas and Halloween. So for
    the sake of yourself and your kids DO NOT buy or watch this movie.If I could I’ve give it no stars at all.

  5. This movie is dark and depressing. It has forever ruined Christmas for me. Christmas is supposed to be about love and peace, not torture and death! Totally disturbing! The only positive thing you can say about it is the level of creativity is high but what a terrible direction to take with it. Do yourself a favor and pick some other show. If you value your sanity you will steer clear of this film at all costs.
