War Horse

   The other day was the first time I have seen the movie War Horse, starring Jeremy Irvine as the main character, Albert. I really love this movie, with all the beautiful scenery and inspirational story line. The movie starts out with Joey, the horse, being born and growing up. Joey and Albert share many happy moments growing up, from learning to ride with a saddle to racing a car. The strong bond between the two main characters is tested when money troubles cause the selling of Joey for the use of  the military. It's a really heartbreaking scene when Joey is taken away because you can just imagine the over-whelming sadness that must consume Albert. Probably my favorite part of the movie, and there are a huge selection to choose from, would have to be when Joey is being rescued by two men from opposite feuding armies. It's really touching to see them stop the fighting for a moment while a poor, lonely, and scared horse is being rescued. Overall, I'm very impressed by this movie and would definitely recommend it to any animal-loving person!


  1. Hi, we've always tried to avoid movies like this. Not because they are bad but I think that our family start crying and stuff. It would be too distracting to all the other sane people in the theatre.
