Polar Express

We very rarely see a movie in a theater, but this past weekend we saw The Polar Express in 3D at the IMAX theater. Now, that was an experience!

We bought our tickets early and then went to eat, but we cut it awfully close getting out of the restaurant so we rushed into the theater just as the lights were going down... and the only seats left were in the very front row! NOT the place you wanna sit for a 3D movie at IMAX! It was very impressive in 3D... it almost seemed like one could reach out and catch the falling snowflakes. And the computer animation in this movie is phenomenal. However, by the end of the movie I was just downright queasy! And so was everyone else in our party. I wonder why they even put seats that close to the screen in IMAX?

I was also wondering how many different roles Tom Hanks played in this movie. We counted 5.
