http://www.youtube.com/v/ZuWD-mSUtrU?hl=en_US&Number 3 : The Nightmare Before Christmas(101 points on 5 of 12 lists. Top Vote #1 by Darth Geek)Synopsis:
Across the universe, there exist a number of towns that control each holiday. In Halloween Town, the ruler Jack "The Pumpkin King" Skellington, leads the celebration of each Halloween and the preparation for the next one. But he's grown tired of the routine and longs for something different. One day, while wandering in the forest, he comes across the door to Christmas Town. Falling in love with the idea of Christmas, he returns to Halloween town to attempt to replicate the feeling there , but to no avail. So he decides to take over Christmas instead. While the town residents build presents, Jack sends a trio to kidnap the Santy Claws. They do so, but deliver him to the Evil Oogie Boogie instead.
On Christmas Eve, Sally, who is in love with Jack, tries to sabotage the flight, but Jack heads off into the sky in a sleigh pulled by 8 skeletal reindeer to deliver the presents. It goes badly. Meanwhile, Sally heads off to free Santa, but is captured instead. Jack, having decided to embrace Halloween, appears and fights Boogie, defeating him and freeing Santa, who heads off to deliver the real presents. But Santa leaves the residents with a gift- a gift of snowfall. The residents frolic, and Jack and Sally head to the cemetery where they admit their love. Memorable Songs:

Many nominations, but few wins. Trivia Notes:
The Jack skeleton made a cameo in James and the Giant Peach as an undead pirate captain. Jack himself appears as a character in several of the Kingdom Hearts games.
The film was originally released under the Touchstone label, as Disney felt that the film might be too mature for its audience. However, the most recent releases of the film place it under the Disney label.
For whatever reason, a Nightmare Before Christmas branded Jenga game was released. And yes, it had both purple and orange pieces. (I wish I'd known this last year for that list..)Coming Soon:
Number 2. Mike will be pleased.
