The Polar Express in Game Razzie Awards


I know these awards aren't to be taken too seriously, as they're pretty much done by some guy to "fill this space somehow", but Blue Tongue has appeared in a journalist's computer and video games version of the Razzie awards for The Polar Express...

Worst director: Blue Tongue development studio, for The Polar Express (Xbox, GC, PC).

How do you take an award-winning children's book that can be read in five minutes and expand it into a 100-minute, big-budget CGI movie? Padding, filler and enough Tom Hanks to put an entire theatre of diabetics at risk.

And how do you take that movie and morph it into a kid-friendly video game? Apparently, by stringing together the most vapid and unimaginative set of mini-games and platform action since, well, possibly ever.

On the plus side, Tom Hanks isn't in it. On the minus side, the guy doing his voice sounds nothing like him. Or maybe that's a plus, too.

    What is this thread about the "Game Razzie Award" or the movie? The link to the Award is broken.
