The thing about The Polar Express is that you'll either immediately get on board (heh) with its slightly dark, often a little weird tone or it'll throw you in the cold. Either way, there's very few Christmas movies like The Polar Express and that alone is something to be praised. Tom Hanks voices pretty much every character in the film - from a little boy all the way up to Santa Claus and the conductor of said Polar Express - and even provided motion-capture for each character too. Like we said, it's a little weird in places.
