I used to love all of burtans movies when i was growing up, nightmare before Xmas is still one of my all time fav movies. but I have been very let down with the last few (corpse bride, charlie and choclate factory, and sweeny todd) Love the story of alice in wonderland so i hope he dosent ruin this.
