Does your theatre do that? Don't they realize what this does to people over 50? Isn't life traumatic enough for us what with our skin sagging, memory lagging, energy dragging?

So, we went to our movie pick #2 - War Horse. I'm not a horse person nor am I a big fan of animal movies in general. I like animals; but when I go to the movies, I prefer to be wooed, blown up or attacked by aliens. I simply can't take much more reality in my life! But this movie has gotten a lot of hype; so off we went.
People! What a great movie this is! Outside of the battle scenes, the scenery in England and France is breathtaking. I thought the acting was excellent; I could literally feel the fear on the faces of those young men in the trenches getting ready to attack. It didn't take sides -- British or German. And it gave an insight to a side of WWI that I'd never even considered before -- the hundreds of thousands of horses that were used and subsequently died carrying soldiers and toting guns, etc.
Yup; I cried! But it wasn't sappy -- well, not overly sappy anyway. I highly recommend this movie.
