the polar express
synopsis :On Christmas Eve, a young boy (Daryl Sabara) is hoping for belief in the true spirit of Christmas. He suddenly hears some noise from downstairs and runs to investigate. Seeing a shadow of what appears to be Santa Claus, he soon discovers that it is his dad with his sister on his shoulders. He runs back to his room and looks through magazines and encyclopedias for confirmation of Santa Claus and the North Pole, but to no avail. Hearing his parents coming, he runs back to bed and pretends to be asleep while his parents whisper about how he had once stayed up late listening for Santa Claus. About an hour after they leave, a magic train called The Polar Express pulls up in front of his house. He is invited aboard by the train's mysterious conductor (Tom Hanks) to journey to the North Pole. Though he initially hesitates, he boards the train after it starts to move.click here for info.

comment :i saw these movies back in the local television yesterday and today.maybe for the first two meant for the celebration before xmas for kids and spoiling us with wild imagination through the special effects.as for the third was more for adult.i enjoy watching all of them although not that all amazed.but for the free movies these weren't so bad either.
