Cord Cutting Guides, News, and Reviews
Do you believe in Santa? That’s the question millions of children ask each other each year around Christmas time. As they spend time with their friends and talk to one another at school, a tiny seed of doubt spreads from child to child. In a movie focused on finding faith in Christmas for one such child, doubt has fully taken hold.
“The Polar Express” is a touching story about a child who has lost the ability to believe. He reluctantly catches a ride on the Polar Express, a magical train that whisks him and other pajama-clad children off to the North Pole in the dead of night. Along the way, through trials and strange lessons, this young boy learns what it truly means to believe in the spirit of Christmas.
