I recently viewed the latest Spielberg movie War Horse for Lost in the Multiplex:
The first twenty minutes or so of Steven Spielberg’s War Horse are an incredibly overly-sentimental look at an Americanized version of the British countryside. I swear I’ve never seen the sky that pink and the grass that green. The story of one boy, Albert (Jeremy Irvine), and his beloved horse Joey starts off heavy on the schmaltz and, in all honesty, at this point I was worried about the next two hours or so dragging by. Luckily, though, the movie does pick up and once the War kicks in and we follow Joey off to France, the film becomes far more palatable.
