Thomas & The Magic Railroad - Comments and Message Board

I stumbled across Rob Blackwelder's review of Thomas and the Magic Railroad while trying to hunt down movie merchandise for my son's 3rd birthday.I have to say I am startled by the passion Rob feels for the film's shortcomings. It is undeniably poorly acted and scripted with a slightly convoluted and confusing storyline. But I would hazzard a guess that it is not intended for adults with the ability to focus on these failings.My 4 and a half year old and (soon to be) 3year old both adore the film, and have been fans of the TV series for some time too. I dont think parents should be put off this movie by critics who measure it with the same yardstick that you would measure something like "The Pillow Book" for example.Thomas and the Magic Railroad is fun, exciting, magical and has all the well loved characters that kids are familiar with from the TV show. Isn't that what/who the movie is for?
