Movie Reviews:

  • Andres Gomez: A too long story of a horse in times of WW I and its relationship with a young brit and some other characters in the way.

    Too childish but another family movie from Spielberg in the tradition of E.T. and the like.

  • Gimly: I absolutely understand why _War Horse_ got the highbrow attention that it did, but I did not find it satisfying on a personal level.

    Final rating:★★ – Definitely not for me, but I sort of get the appeal.
