War Horse

I might have liked this a lot when I was 14. But I'm not 14 so I was kind of nonplussed.

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!!! BUT YOU DON'T CARE. READ THIS ANYWAY!

So there's this horse, see. And this mean landlord loses out in an auction to a well meaning drunkard.

The drunkard's son loves this horse. And teaches him how to plow a field and save the day!

And then forces beyond our control lead to war. And the horse gets conscripted. And becomes a WAR HORSE!

He goes from the English to the Germans to a farm house. Back to the Germans. And then he runs around a bit. And then he gets caught in a fence. And then there's this heartwarming scene between an English soldier and a German one. Humanity bonds over a beautiful horse, dude.

Then he's back to the English. Then there's a reunion. And then some tears. And some hugs.

The End.

P.S. I'm a sucker for war movies so I liked the fight scenes. And that plow scene looked super cool. But the sky looked weird and the movie was kind of dumb.

P.P.S. This is hilarious!

i know. i should have known better. i'm a sucker for spielberg but i'm beginning to suspect he's done.

i'm not sure he's done. i just saw tintin and nearly lost my mind i loved it so much. the rightful fourth chapter in the raiders saga - 100 time better than the crystal skull mumbo jumbo.

for some reason, i wasn't super into seeing tintin but your enthusiasm maybe has changed my mind.

it was the most fun i've had at the movies in a while. a good double header with ghost protocol.
