Movies: 10 Things I Discovered Watching The Nightmare Before Christmas As an Adult

In addition to the Halloween cult classics, one of my favorite spooky season movies is The Nightmare Before Christmas. The Nightmare Before Christmas was written by film director/producer and artist Tim Burton, most of my favorite movies were written and/or directed by Tim Burton. If you’re a fan of Tim Burton’s work, what’s your favorite Burton movie?

The Nightmare Before Christmas was released as an animated movie in October 1993, it has been a Halloween favorite for almost twenty years and if you have a Disney+ subscription you can watch it for FREE! Getting to it, here are ten things I realized after rewatching The Nightmare Before Christmas as an adult:

1) Didn’t realize this until just now but, Sir Patrick Stewart (X-Men/Star Trek) narrated the film’s soundtrack.
2) Jack’s desire for something more is extremely relatable. I feel like Jack discovering Christmas Town every time I visit a new City.
3) Dr. Finkelstein’s almost unhealthy like possessiveness of Sally is a toxic form of love but I mean I kind of understand it though… after all, she is his creation.
4) The Mayor definitely has some anxiety issues and maybe even a tiny touch of ocd.
5) Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek/Beetlejuice) plays the voice of Shock and Sally in The Nightmare Before Christmas.
6) Sally putting herself back together after jumping out the window is my favorite scene. It reminds me of all the times I’ve had to pull myself together and keep it moving.
7) “Just because I can’t see it, doesn’t mean I can’t believe it.” is my favorite quote from the movie.
8) This movie is a great reminder that we all live in different realities; what some embrace, others might fear.
9) It’s also a reminder that no matter how much we try to force things, it’s ultimately up to fate; what’s meant to be, simply will be.
10) To this day people still debate on if this is a Halloween Movie or a Christmas movie, what do you think?
