Then we decided to go see The Polar Express.
Then we had Cold Rock ice cream. I had chocolate with mini m&m's mix-ins (I didn't have any red m&ms, and I wasn't sure if I was upset, or whether I now had a more free conscience).
The Polar Express was actually good. I liked it. The animation was mostly brilliant. The movement in some cases was a bit worrying because of how stiff it was. And some of the texturing was a little too perfect skin-wise. But apart from that - good to look at. Whether or not it was worth the amount of money is debatable. Hey, they could have spent some of that extra money on more voice actors! Tom Hanks was something like 5 characters. Oh, he did a great job... but you could have had different voices done by different actors you know.
