One of the finest Christmas films in decades
6 January 2006 | by Barnabasat45See all my reviews

I just had to spell out Christmas in caps, just to protest all this evil nonsensically political correctness. My goodness, not since Albert Finnys 1970 musical "Scrooge" have I experienced such a magical ride as I did on the Polar Express. Although, some of the animation which lay across the actors faces was a bit distracting, this film was like a happy childhood dream. Beautiful newly written holiday songs plus old standards filled my ears while my eyes and soul were filled with the magic of Christmas and Santa. How anyone could not love this film epic is beyond me. To all those far left wingers that did not enjoy Polar Express I say Bah Humbug!
