The Polar Express product reviews

Journey Beyond Your Imagination.

Director Robert Zemeckis makes the best of both worlds in this big-screen adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg's books, as although the film is computer generated, the characters are all modelled on real human performances. A boy who doubts the magic of Christmas is taken on a train ride to the North Pole to meet Santa Claus (Tom Hanks).

I went and saw this with my mother when it came out and I so enjoyed it that I knew it was one that I simply had to own on DVD and when we begun our Christmas tradition a couple of years ago (watching one Christmas movie per night the weeks before Christmas day) this has been one we have watched each year. A young boy, on the cusp of no longer believing in Santa etc ends up on a magical train ride to the North Pole to meet Santa . This is a great story about imagination and for those who believe in it, the magic of Christmas.

The animation was strange to get used to the first time I watched it, but by the time the movie was over it wasn't so hard. Tom Hanks plays a couple of characters in this movie, and even has a musical number... I did find the puppet marionettes a bit creepy and spooky, but then again they are something that I found spooky and creepy for many many years, so that wasn't really a surprise. Some of the scenes are fantastic, such as the kids having to tie themselves to the front of the train as it goes speeding away on some very steep tracks.

A fun Christmas movie and it is one that the kids love.

Directed by Edward Zwick

Product image for The Last SamuraiCaptain Nathan Algren (TOM CRUISE) is a man adrift. The battles he once fought now seem distant and futile. Once he risked his life for honor and country, but, in the years since the Civil War, the world has changed. Pragmatism has replaced courage, self-interest has taken the place of sacrifice and honor is nowhere to be found - especially out ... more...
