I have to blog about this movie "War Horse". My Sweetie and I went to see it last night at our local theater; we've been wanting to see it for a while but went to see some other movies instead. Movies like "Sherlock Holmes" and the "Mission Impossible" three, both excellent movies but nothing compared to "War Horse". This movie is by far the best movie I have seen in a few years, maybe even longer. When I go to a movie, I go for entertainment, I don't go to critique it or feel that I need to see the best movie possible for my money. I'm happy if it entertains me. But this movie, "War Horse" more than entertained me; it drew me into the drama from the very beginning; it made me laugh and then it made me cry; it crushed me, then lifted me up. I was truly swept up into the emotion, the scenes and the drama of the movie. It is one movie that my Sweetie and I talked about on our way home. We talked about, not just one major scene, but many of the scenes and we talked more about it the next day. In typical Spielberg style, he went above and beyond and directed/produced a move of exceptional character. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.
Til next time
