24 Days of Christmas – #13 The Polar Express Review

One night a train stops outside a young boys house to make him believe in Santa Claus again. This train will take a group of children to the North Pole. There is a lot of trouble along the way but also new knowledge and true friendships. So, will this boy believe again? 

tumblr_meabxd8rt41r5siljo4_500This is THE christmas movie I grew up with. I really don’t know how many times I have watched it but I’ve loved it every single time. The whole animation is cool, I would almost describe this type of animation like something between a “real world” and Disney (but just almost). So this movie is not as humorous as the previous Christmas movies has been but it still got its charm. I think it is a perfect movie for any human being, well children might love it more but it hasn’t that much of a “childish” tone to it.

The story is just spot on, and that’s why I love it. Another reason is that there is something magical about the movie. Even I wanted to believe for a moment, because this movie really makes you want to believe.

It doesn’t matter how many times I watch it, but there is one scene where I always get scared (because I just don’t like horror stuff, even if this one is very very mild). To finish this of I feel like I’m obligated to talk about the music, because it is truly extraordinary. It’s so beautiful. The songs are most definitely one of the reasons why I love this movie, they are so good. The song “Believe” by Josh Groban is amazing, you should definitely listen to it!

My rating: 8/10 🎄
