    Default WAR Horse

    war horse movie - Google Search

    we will see it on Christmas. And ya, I'm a sucker for horse stories, it is sort of my business. Speilberg usually does good stuff. Let you all know what I thought.

    WAR HORSE Review

    The idea behind War Horse is to show how war touches lives beyond bullets and bombs, and it’s a sound concept. There’s nothing inherently wrong about using a framing device like Joey to tie together vignettes. The fault lies in wanting to show the broad canvas of war but without the brutality. When Spielberg made Saving Private Ryan, he didn’t attempt to do a remake of The Longest Day. He made sure the audience understood with full clarity the meaning of the expression, “War is Hell.” With War Horse, the message becomes “War is not a very nice place to go.”

    I'm sorry but this looks pretty stupid.

    That's a little harsh. Sure, it looks calculated/schmaltzy but the holiday season is rife with these kind of movies. It looks like it has it's charms.

    I liked Seabiscuit.

    Have no interest in this one, though.

    It just looks sad. The part of Neverending Story where the horse dies used to make me so ****ing sad.

    I can't watch.

    And, for the record, all the news/stuff about this film was posted in the All Things: Drama thread. Just in case anyone wants to see what's been posted about it so far.

    Glad to have it in it's own thread.

    Thanks for reminding me of that scene.

    We need an All Things Traumatizing thread.
