Danny Elfman Talks About Making a ‘Big Mess,’ and Returning to Rock a Quarter-Century After Oingo Boingo Split

“Elfman sings!” It’s almost as grabby a potential catchphrase as “Garbo speaks.” But of course, Danny Elfman has participated in the talkies before… or, to put it in plainer terms, his new album, “Big Mess,” does not mark the first time he’s stood in front of a rock ‘n’ roll band in the studio to […]

‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ Villain Oogie Boogie Caused a Major Creative Clash with Tim Burton

It’s that magical time of year when people needlessly argue about whether or not The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie. The democratic answer is that it’s both and everyone should just enjoy it. The correct answer is that it’s a Christmas movie, because 95% of it takes place after Halloween and leading up to Christmas. These are facts. But there’s another argument surrounding The Nightmare Before Christmas that you might not have heard about. The film’s writer...

‘Prop Culture’ is a Delightfully Nerdy Treasure Hunt Through Disney Movie History

Today, movie props are some of the most expensive collector’s items out there, often selling for hundreds to thousands of dollars at auction. That brings us to a new Disney+...

‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ at 25: Tim Burton’s Hybrid-Holiday Musical Still Holds Charm

Tim Burton’s best movie might actually be one he didn’t direct.

Since 1990, a parade of peculiar, pale protagonists, led by the grand marshal of Edward Scissorhands, has formed up in his long string of collaborations with Johnny Depp. His early collaborations with Michael Keaton also gave us the iconic Beetlejuice and two rich, operati...
