Nice Christmas movie for the youngsters.

Take the RRP with a pinch of salt. It is retaling at a maximum of £13.95 (that I can find). But it is out of stock/on order in most places. Nevertheless, this is still the cheapest available.

Description
Director Robert Zemeckis revolutionised the art of animated film in 1998s WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT by dropping cartoon characters into the same frame with flesh-and-blood actors. In THE POLAR EXPRESS, live action and animation have merged seamlessly, resulting in sparkling super-realism. A landmark technique Zemeckis and his Sony Pictures Imageworks team call Performance Capture perfectly suits the tenor of this wondrous childrens Christmas story by Chris Van Allsburg. A disillusioned little boy, just old enough to doubt the existence of Santa Claus, has the adventure of a lifetime one fateful Christmas Eve. Clad in his pyjamas, he climbs aboard a magic train to the North Pole, driven by a kindly train conductor (voiced by Tom Hanks who starred in both Academy-Award winning films by Zemeckis (FORREST GUMP and CASTAWAY). Among myriad jaw-dropping moments, the train plummets brakeless through crystalline mountains in a simulated roller coaster ride. Going off the rails, skidding sideways, and snaking violently across a frozen lake, the train arrives at the North Pole (a vast, glowing city of brick buildings). At that moment, the car carrying the kids detaches and theyre sent tumbling down never-ending chutes and slides until they land in the middle of Santas Workshop. With its fascinating tale and impressive technical frolics, THE POLAR EXPRESS is destined to become both a holiday classic and a new turning point in the art of animated cinema.

My (almost) 2 year old has a new found love for this film....it was on 5 times yesterday & 3 times today!!
He's not interested when theyre off the train! Think it stems from being a Thomas fan!

This is a great Christmas film. We bring it out every year and have the surround sound up.. great..
Good price.. but have a feeling I saw it in HMV today for £6...(less vat discount..)

best christmas film ever I agree with the surround sound bit above, wind it up high and get the floor bouncing:thumbsup:

You did indeed......but that's the single disc version. This is the "with nobs on" 2 disc version

FANTASTIC film! Brilliant price for the two disc set too!

Incredibly expensive

This is on my Amazon wishlist. I think this is a good deal, but haven't yet bought it. If it's expensive, where's cheaper to save myself a few quid?

But, given that it IS Christmas, and people ARE thinking about buying these things, this is surely the cheapest deal out there for the two disc set? If noone can do better, I'm off to buy a copy. Thanks to the OP, rep added!:santa:

Can anyone post the link for the cheaper 2 disc edition please?

Good price OP, ignore silly comments about single disc being cheaper (talk about stating the obvious!!). I can't find it cheaper elsewhere either so heat added from me....

We love this film and watch it every year to get us in the festive mood. Actually we like it so much we are going to see it in 3D at the London IMAX on Christmas Eve (now THAT is definitely not cheap) In fact I think I am probably more excited about it than my 6yr old...:oops: can't wait to see the train skidding on the frozen lake bit in glorious 3D...:thumbsup:
