The Nightmare Before Christmas is a stop-motion animation classic, which spent years germinating in the creative mind of Tim Burton. Jack Skellington (Elfman & Sarandon), the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, is bored with the same old tricks and treats and yearns for something more than things that go bump in the night. After another stale Halloween celebration, while on a walk with his ghostly canine Zero, Jack stumbles upon the glorious magic of Christmas Town
The anamorphically enhanced 1.66:1 DVD shows noticeable improvement in overall resolution over the previously reviewed DVD. Black levels are still slightly elevated, but there is better definition in the shadows, providing a noticeable sense of depth to the picture. Colors are more bold and better defined, and contrast seems more natural. Source artifacts have been cleaned up, and compression levels are improved. This picture is an upgrade. (Danny Richelieu)
