CMV: "The Nightmare Before Christmas" really isn't that great of a film, and gets way more love than it deserves by Misterfahrenheit120 in changemyview

there are three things that make me think that tNBC deserves the cult following is

  1. This is first a for mostly a children's film and for a lot of children (myself included) this was the first 'horror' movie that they have seen. Yes, it's not a true hide behind the sofa horror but for children, there is enough to scare them (oggie boogie man).
  2. The whole story is based on a poem (yes the poem was written by Tim Burton). This is a challenge in its self and although they didn't quite get a great storyline it's still better than most other films personal opinion
  3. The animation was out of this world. Us Brits had had Wallace and Gromit for a few years and that had won a few Oscars but tNBC's use of animation in a full feature film took stop-motion animation to a new level. They not only used stop motion but also tiny lights to highlight tiny areas of the set. To my knowledge, this was the first stop-motion film that was also a musical.

I hope that this helps and while the film's story might not be the best in the world the story is not the only thing that makes a film good.

They are normally before the first match so you will need tickets for that game to see it.

Iirc Kicks must stay within bounds even after it had bounced if the kicking team touches the ball (ie catches it) the play ends and the reciving team starts with the ball where it was touched

Have a look at some of the rugby anthems. We just have a band playing and the crowd sings

If you want a different perspective with less adverts I'd suggest watching the sky sports coverage

Congrats mate. One thing I suggest with your first pay check if you can is to take your parents out for a drink or small meal.
