Mama and Papa Movie Review: War Horse

17 May

Star Rating: 3 stars

(for Star Rating key:

Ah, another Spielberg movie. Ok. Here’s our take on it. It was good. It wasn’t the best, but it was a fine movie. Sure it tugs at the heartstrings at certain moments, there are moments of triumph, there is death.. and Loki (from Thor) makes an appearance for two seconds until he dies foolishly and to quote my husband “from being a dumbass.:” This movie also has great musical orchestration. Yay for John Williams. Again. Johnny, we get it. You’re good. You’re real good.

The premise of the story revolves around a horse and his handler. Through the course of the movie, the horse takes a journey through different handlers, war, children and maybe, JUST maybe can make his way home.

To be honest, at times this movie is a little overly dramatic and boring, but the exciting parts and emotional scenes more than make up for it.

Quote from my husband: “It’s a horse people!”

Quote from me: “Honestly, it’s a good movie. I’m just kind of bored writing about it. The horse doesn’t say much.”

    HA! I’m not watching it bc I can’t watch animal stuff or I’ll cry too much. Also this seems like the “boring dipshit” of movies 😉

      Yea, I got bored writing the review. It’s a good movie to have on in the background when you are playing with your kiddo and you don’t have to pay much attention to it. Hee hee…

    We saw it in the theatre and I balled my eyes out. I just couldn’t get over the fact that the little French girl died.

    Oh yes I totally agree! When grandpa wanted to buy the horse at the end I started to ugly cry.
