It's the last night of our holiday, sob! It's been so nice. Now time for the long drive home.
The Johnson's Baby winner was Posie Patchwork. Congrats!
Recently I was sent a copy of Steven Spielberg's 'War Horse'.
Now I must say from the outset that I'm no fan of animal movies. I like animals out in the wild, not on my screen.
The first thing that struck me about the movie was that it doesn't look like a modern film. The colours and the angles of some of the shots reminded me of epics from the '30s like 'Gone With The Wind'. Sweeping scenes, pink clouds, shadowed silhouettes. You get the feeling straight away that this is going to be an epic.
It's the story of a horse called Joey, who through a series of events travels from the English countryside to war-torn France. The special horse has a series of owners and a unique relationship with each. It's slow-moving but looks fantastic. I was not won over by the horse, but as I said I find it hard to warm to animal 'characters' and relationships on film.
'War Horse' is a film for those who love epics from yesteryear and believe in the special bond we have with our animal friends.
I have three DVD copies of War Horse to giveaway. Just comment below and tell me what your favourite animal character in a movie is and why.
