War Horse

Star Rating:   3 stars

(for Star Rating key: https://madtimemama.wordpress.com/mama-and-papa-movie-reviews/)

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 a 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.”
