Word recently broke that director Robert Zemeckis will soon be adapting 'The Nutcracker,' using his favorite toy: 3-D computer animation. His last three films have all been of the same CG-variety, from the groundbreaking 'The Polar Express' to the dull and disappointing 'Beowulf' on to the recently released, middling 'A Christmas Carol.' Based on that track record, it's a tough call to judge whether Zemeckis can crack this nut.
