A beloved holiday movie by Tom Hanks is streaming on HBO Max just in time for the holidays


Next stop, Uncanny Valley!

It’s that time of year to curl up on the couch and watch Christmas movies. While the Hallmark Channel or Lifetime have tried to conquer the market for the genre, another streaming service apparently hopes to take the lead out of nostalgia by adding a specific animated film from 2004 to its library. That’s right, HBO Max is now letting subscribers stream the Tom Hanks film “The Polar Express” from the Uncanny Valley.

The story is based on a classic 1985 children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg (who also wrote the book Jumanji). The Polar Express is about a handful of children who board a special train bound for the North Pole to meet Santa Claus. The main character, an unnamed boy, begins the journey as a total skeptic who doubts the existence of Santa Claus.

This film is mostly forgettable for the CGI used and produces an odd animation style that made Tom Hanks a little uncomfortable to watch when it came out. The years since its release haven’t really done it any good, and the prevailing opinion is that Hanks and the film’s other characters are still distractingly annoying.

However, the Polar Express was lovingly crafted by a legend. The film was written and directed by Robert Zemeckis, who also directed Forrest Gump and the Back to the Future film series.

Alternatively, it’s possible that cinemas near you have Christmas Eve showings of The Polar Express if you’d rather traumatize your kids with the film on a bigger screen for the holidays.
