“War Horse”

“War Horse,” directed by Steven Spielberg, is just what Hollywood needs to concentrate on – a good, simple, gratifying movie. Human foibles, a boy and his horse, dreams, hardship, and strength of will are presented as only Spielberg knows how. He takes you from the English countryside to the horrendous WWI trench warfare in France and back again with humor, sorrow, anger, and sighs of relief. Although there are several “Oh, brother” moments, this movie touches the heart, as it is meant to do. It’s predictability may be a given, but this film is worth watching.

Rating: 3.4 out of 5 stars.

I have been writing since I was 11 and am now a grandmother of 9. Aside from my family, I love writing, reading, movies, gardening, genealogy, and travel. I met my soulmate online and we've been married 19 years. I am a survivor of rape, abuse, and cancer. I believe in love, kindness, and common sense. I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border. I have written essays, articles, short stories, a romance novel, a self-help book, and several children's books.

    Without a doubt, this is Spielberg trying his hardest to manipulate the hell out of his audience but it somehow works and brought me into the story despite some of the very corny moments. Great review.
