Someone Shoot Me Now

In the spirit of today's Friday Five, I have to add that The Polar Express is the most tedious movie I have ever seen.
We've been watching it for an hour and a half now and it feels like at least 4 hours have passed.
The animation is creepy- the eyes on the people look dead.
And the whole point of the movie is "Christmas is in your heart," expressed, of course, by Tom Hank's version of Santa Claus. (Speaking of creepy...)
Oh, please, no.... now we have band Aerosmith as elves.....
I think I hear the baby Jesus crying....because he's creeped out and bored.

hmm...I actually loved the Polar Express. But I did see it in 3-D IMAX when it first came out. I liked that it looked just like the book, and that it snowed on me and at one point the train stopped right in front of my face. It makes for a little more excitement....

also I LOVED the hot-cocoa-on-the-train dance scene! :-)

My kids adore this movie. Thomas asked Santa for a Polar Express train for Xmas. It is a little creepy, though.
