My Tree thanks to slodwick
I just got home from going to the movies to watch War Horse.



Without giving anything away, it was absolutely amazing. And I'm not going to be able to look at a horse for a very long time without getting a tear in my eye. (I may have cried a ridiculous amount. Like, "watching Lady Di's funeral on the television" amount.)

So I can recommend it. I just can never watch it again.

I'm glad I saw it on the big screen, because some of the camera shots on take your breath away. On the other hand, if I'd watched it at home, I could have taken a couple of breaks to calm down.

I am not exaggerating when I say I got through half a box of tissues. And when I got home after posting that I went to bed, as I was too emotionally drained and had a headache.

But sweet jeebus the movie is just amazing. And the time flies by - it's about 2.5 hours long, and you don't notice the time going.

There's enough funny moments to keep you going, but they just help make the sad moments sad.

I really want this movie to win heaps at the Oscars. Unfortunately, I don't think horses are eligible for Best Actor (and trust me, the horses and their acting are brilliant)
