Tim Burton & Henry Selick’s THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
(PG, 1993, 71 min)
Here are the misadventures of Jack Skellington, Halloweentown’s beloved pumpkin king, who has become bored with the same annual routine of frightening people in the “real world.” When Jack accidentally stumbles on Christmastown, all bright colors and warm spirits, he gets a new lease on life—he plots to bring Christmas under his control by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over the role. But Jack soon discovers even the best-laid plans of mice and skeleton men can go seriously awry.
Robert Zemeckis’ WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT?
(PG, 1988, 104 min)
“Who Framed Roger Rabbit” brought a re-emerging interest from the golden age of American animation and became the forefront of the modern animation era. It’s 1947 Hollywood and Eddie Valiant, a down-on-his-luck detective, is hired to find proof that Marvin Acme, gag factory mogul and owner of Toontown, is playing hanky-panky with femme fatale Jessica Rabbit, wife of Maroon Cartoon superstar, Roger Rabbit. When Acme is found murdered, all fingers point to Roger, who begs the Toon-hating Valiant to find the real evildoer.
