James and the Giant Peach : 5 of 5
Being a big fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas, I'm in love with the look of this movie. But I'm also a fan of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which was also written by Roald Dahl, so I'm love with the story, too. In other words, this is a fantastic movie! The combination of live action and beautiful stop motion is awesome, and allows for the visualization of so many fantastic things. The voice acting is perfect, and the music is wonderful (from funny songs to the sad My Name is James, which can always bring a tear). Once again, I'm a sucker for a plot with a child overcoming obstacles and finally becoming a part of a new world - James and the Giant Peach is a great rainy day movie that can make the sun shine again.
