Last night I took my ten year old son to see "The Polar Express" and it was great! We had a really good time. Parts of the movie were a little scary and some parts just gave me goose bumps (in a good way). My ten year old really loved it. I think it is a great Christmas story. The characters looked very human. The only thing I thought was lacking was the lack of life (spirit) behind their eyes (which is to be expected since the characters aren't real) but I don't think kids would notice this. Definitely a great movie for kids and adults, especially this time of year.
Last movie I went to see was "Saw" Scary movie ... well kinda it was more blood and just nasty stuff than scary but watching that gets you outta your seat a little bit sooo ... pretty good I will probably buy the DVD when it comes out... but not one to watch late at night lol

My family and I went to see "The Incredibles". My children seemed to enjoy it but my opinion is it was very predictable. It follows every other superhero movie formula and just wasn't very original. It was cute but nothing special. It just didn't live up to the expectations I had from listening to the previews and the media hype. Some parts were very funny but the whole story line was just been there done that. According to the media, this movie is doing much better than "The Polar Express" but truthfully I found "The Polar Express" to be a much better movie. This is all just my opinion and though I think children would enjoy either movie, I think "Polar Express" is a better bet as far as a good story line and being more original. (I will say the "Polar Express" does have a few parts that might be a little scary for the under 5 set)
took the kids to see the Polar Express this weekend......we all really liked it. Really put me in the spirit of christmas. The animation was really good and tom hanks plays I believe 5 of the roles/voice in it
Hoping to go see the Incredibles next weekend
rented Raising Helen and I really liked it too.

Actually doing to the theater to see... Betsy's Wedding in 1990, right after I got married. Now we just rent them it is much cheaper. Would like to break down and see National Treasure this coming weekend, but don't know if we'll have the money.
