I saw the play version of "War Horse" in London a couple of years ago (on the night that the Queen and Phil showed up, in fact). A viler, more manipulative piece of YA trash I've never seen. (The American school girls in front of me were moved beyond tears.) The puppetry was remarkable, but wasted in such claptrap.

When I heard Spielberg was going to make a film, I realized at once he was the perfect director, given his level of hackitude and utter lack of interest in actual human beings.

Anything that takes a jaundiced view of it is AOK in my book.
