The world, it turns out, is divided into two kinds of people: Those who think The Polar Express is an instant yuletide classic that utilizes groundbreaking computer technologies to create enchanting and timeless visual marvels, and those who think the movie’s just creepy as hell. The former group will delight in this set’s EXTRAS, which include a making-of that shows Tom Hanks with what looks like an electronic facial rash, a Josh Groban music video, a tepid videogame demo, and a deleted song — solemnly introduced as late costar Michael Jeter’s final performance — that features flaming flatulence. The only genuine moment in this entire zombie-fest is Nona Gaye’s Christmas memory of her dad, singer Marvin Gaye. Guess we’re the second kind of people.
