POLAR EXPRESS- wow.

Just took my son to see Polar Express last night. Truely amazing.
I had been reading in the latest "Film & Video" magazine about the motion capture used to make it. Tom Hanks played most all of the charactors in the film.
I predict in 5 years, only an accutely trained eye will be able to pick out the difference between a real shot, and CGI.

It's some of the best animation I've seen yet. My hats off to Pixar.
My 2 1/2 year old son sat spellbound through most of the movie- quite an acccomplishment if any of you dont have kids.

Nice story line, interesting camera "movement". Little elves looked real! Great Sound FX too.

I highly recommend it for you and the kids.
