CNN Review: 'Polar Express' a creepy ride 

Well, there's a lot of reviews of the "Polar Express" similar to this one. This CNN review is one example of a critic of the movie. It's as I said when I saw the preview... too unnatural. They were better off putting human actors into a CG environment like "sky captain", versus digitizing them to non-realistic characters. Apparently, the bad reviews of Final Fantasy were because the characters were unrealistic. However, the technology it took to do Final Fantasy AND the animation was far superior to that of the Polar Express (IMHO).
