  IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS
Elf
Jon Favreau, 2003
.......................................................................................................................................
Tim, Tim, Tim... Our first bonus question is for you. What do you think we found harder to believe; a talking skeleton with a detachable head or how anyone could grow tired of Halloween? You guessed it, the latter. Did anyone else, besides Jack (Chris Sarandon),
Buddy's (Will Ferrell) Christmas decorations were a sight to behold. But what really impressed us was a skill few even knew he had. Think about it. No, we're not talking about his 60-second belch. This was something that was neither repulsive or annoying.

The Nightmare Before Christmas
(1) Absolutely, positively - no one that we know of. (2) He was dressed like a scarecrow. (3) That's true (4) The Nightmare Before Valentine's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving or St Patrick's Day. Don't ask us what was behind the fifth door. We still haven't figured that one out yet. (5) He gave her the left side of his brain.

(6) A turtle (7) If you picked Lock, the answer is yes. (8) "Sandy Claws" (9) Jack used Zero to guide him through the fog that was created.
(10) We were mistaken. See, we can admit when we're wrong.

Elf
The portrait he drew of the Mona Lisa on an Etch-A-Sketch. Of course, that raises another interesting question - if he was that skilled as an artist, how do you explain the drawings on the card to his dad?
 
Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

Lights, Camera, Trivia
..................................
in Halloween Town feel the same way?

2. Who has time to shop when you're the Pumpkin King? We don't know where Jack got his clothes, but we did notice that his attire only changed twice during the course of the film. What was different about his appearance when his character was introduced?

3. The Mayor (Glenn Shadix) couldn't remove his own head, like Jack could, but he could spin it completely around. Is that true or false?

4. A meteor the size of the Oogie Boogie Man (Ken Page) didn't obliterate the forest outside of Halloween Town, did it? The reason why we ask is because if any film were set up for a sequel, this was it. Jack could have gone through five other doors the day he discovered Christmas Town. Choose the one you'd want to see next.
5. You know what couldn't be remade or duplicated? Dr. Finkelstein's (William Hickey) second companion. At least not in the exact manner she was created. Why not?

6. We know it's the thought that counts, but roadkill? No thanks. What type of critter had been dead for "much too long" to make a present?

7. Lock (Paul Reubens), Shock (Catherine O'Hara), and Barrel (Danny Elfman)? Pick one before you read the next question. Is that who wanted to boil Santa (Ed Ivory) in a pot, and then butter him up?

8. Why not boil him in a pot? That's how you cook a lobster or something that resembles one, isn't it? Santa could have been mistaken for a mutant crustation if a certain part of his anatomy was true to the name he kept getting called.
9. If Sally (Catherine O'Hara) really did want Jack to stay away from Christmas Town, she shouldn't have made him a Santa Claus outfit. Why did the plan that was devised to stop him fail?

10. They say that no two snowflakes are alike. But we thought we saw a couple that resembled Jack's face in the film's closing sequence. Are we wrong or right?
