07:37 pm: The Polar Express
I thought I'd read this, but whatever I read had a snowman as a major character. This was made by filming actors doing the show and then animating on top of it. I'm pretty sure I would have liked the real people better, although it would have needed some FX.

A little boy thinks Christmas and Santa are just stories, but when he gets on the Polar Express train (Tom Hanks as conductor), he has a lot of adventures and starts believing in Santa and gets a very special present from him. He wakes up in his bed, his sister calling everybody because Santa has been there, and he's not sure about Santa again. Then he finds a box with his special present and a note from "Mr. C."

It was okay, particularly since we had snow coming down outside, but I wouldn't watch it again.
