War Horse

I'm surprised the BBC didn't save Steven Spielberg's movie War Horse (2011) for its Christmas schedules. but I guess it wanted to extend the World War 1 outbreak commemorations a while longer while we still have remembrance poppies in our buttonholes. Based on Michael Morpurgo's 1982 children's novel, War Horse follows a plucky steed named Joey around the battlefields of Europe while his former young owner tries to bring him back home. The film was nominated for 6 Oscars, but was pipped at the post. It's on BBC One tonight at 8pm (CLICK). I'm not sure even a Steven Spielberg blockbuster can keep me awake for 2 hours 20 minutes, but we'll see.
