The Polar Express

The Polar Express Movie Poster

My Thoughts:

-    I've been hesitating to see this because I don't like how they stretch children's books into full length movies. Several people have told me this was good though, so I thought I'd give it a try. 

-    I have mixed feelings about this one.

-    There were several scenes that just dragged on and on, and I thought they'd never end. 

-    I loved Tom Hanks as the conductor, Santa, and half the cast.

-    The music is really good! I especially love Josh Groban's song during the credits.

-    I think this movie captured the feel and essence of the book. It was charming and full of Christmas spirit, but I think it dragged. The movie could have been shortened. I wish this was a Christmas short, and not a full length movie. 

-    Can someone explain the hobo on the train? Who is he? Why is he there?


  1. I haven’t seen this one but I haven’t read the book either. I don’t think I could handle either for some reason.

  2. I haven't seen this one. I've heard it's kind of creepy, not scary, but creepy, pedophile-y.
