War Horse + giveaway

A few weeks ago I was sent War Horse to review, I watched it and have tried to write this review ever since.
I haven't been able to write more than it is an enjoyable movie with a great storyline...

So I guess I will have to leave it at that! Well, I will add that it was a heart warming tale and certainly sad in parts. I did think it was a little long, but that could of been the fact that I had to keep stopping it to get up to Ethan who was sick when I was trying to watch it.


If you haven't heard of War Horse it is the new movie from director Steven Spielberg. It is described as-
 " An epic adventure for audiences of all ages. Set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War, "War Horse" begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets—British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter—before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.

The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse—an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. “War Horse” is one of the great stories of friendship and war—a successful book, it was turned into a hugely successful international theatrical hit that is arriving on Broadway next year. It now comes to screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history".
