The Polar Express – Movie Review


Virginia Bates

The Polar Express

Just like every winter holiday, it’s time to cozy up to the fireplace, drink hot cocoa, and watch a movie with family and friends. If you’re looking for a perfect movie, you can’t go wrong with The Polar Express. A story of a young boy who takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, as he embarks on an out of control journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe in the Christmas spirit.
In my opinion, I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of watching this movie. It has a mysterious and fun, nostalgic vibe that will make you glued to the screen, wondering what’s going to happen next. How did this start? How is this going to end? What is happening? The almost realistic looking characters make you feel like you’re a part of the adventure. It’s chaotic and that’s what makes this movie so special.
This movie has existed since 2004, and I have lost count of the amount of times I have watched this, I still can’t fully remember how it ends. It leaves you wondering, and wanting to watch it more.

“If you didn’t watch the polar express when you were a kid, you did not have a childhood” said a Junior in high school Kyle Holmes

“That is one of the best movies of our childhood”

“The best movie” said Senior in high school, Corbin Pettigrew

Teenagers have grown deeply attached to the story behind the screen. For most, it’s their favorite Christmas movie to watch. No doubt that a large percentage of teens will watch The Polar Express over this holiday break. Recording the first show that streams on TV or streams it themselves on demand. So why don’t you? It’s the perfect time to watch it while you’re at home 24/7.  Don’t wait and watch it now. You won’t be disappointed!
