    In a previous review, I considered "The Nightmare Before Christmas" to be a "masterpiece", and "the greatest film ever made about Halloween." I wasn't lying. It's a stunning, visual and musical experience, with a fantastically original concept, and truly outstanding design. It is no wonder why it is still hailed as a classic, and usually the movie to watch for families on Halloween.
    About fifteen seconds into the film, the title appears on the screen. The music is haunting, yet…

    "He might as well be on the Moon."

    These words, spoken by Rob Hall's pregnant wife, to base camp, as her husband lies stranded on the Hillary Step of Mt. Everest after a devastating storm. Nature always does best what is scariest to us: it reclaims us and everything we've made, effortlessly and without regret. If you're up on Everest at night during a storm, you're probably better off on the…
