War Horse is a very inspirational movie that is sure to give your tear ducts a work out. Does it deserve to be nominated Best Picture? I don’t think so. No offense to the horse, but there aren’t enough people in it. To be fair, all the people are fairly awesome, but for it to deserve Best Picture for me, it needs a little more umph. It was basically just a bunch of cliches and dramatic film-making. Cinematography Oscar? Absolutely!! Animal training Oscar? If only there were such a thing!
Really, what it needed more of, was that sharp, bossy French girl. She needed to live so she could grow up and be destined to fall in love with Albert. So there, Steven Speilberg! What a crap movie you’ve made without a proper romantic thread! (totally kidding obviously)
