I saw this trailer. I like WWI movies. I would like to give Spiels the benefit of the doubt, but doesn't this look so incredibly cloying?

All in all, its good to see Sarah Jessica Parker get more work. I just hope she doesn't do her Carrie voiceover while in stirrups.

That didn't take long.

I saw the play. It was so incredibly cloying.

The most redeeming part was the puppets of the horses, which were really well done, but of course they're replaced here by real horses. I'm not an animal lover though, so who knows.

It's based on that horse play thing?

So someone wants to make a movie based on a play that came out on Broadway recently and it ISN'T Book of Mormon? Fuck Hollywood in the ass.

You might be confusing it with naked Harry Potter in Equus, which was turned into a movie in the 1970s.

Well I didn't know it was a recent play. I don't watch the Tonys queer.

Neither did I. I watched the Mavericks game.

But I was able to catch this, which is why I even gave a shit:

Not sure that Spielberg has done anything in the past 18 years to earn the benefit of the doubt. Even if I give you Saving Private Ryan for the first scene and you give me Minority Report that's only 2 decent movies out of 10. Baseball hitters don't last long batting .200.

Also, I don't think "cloying" is the right word. I'd substitute "ponderous" based on the trailer.

I really liked Munich. You're not getting Minority Report.

Cloying: to disgust or sicken (someone) with an excess of sweetness, richness, or sentiment.

There's a 15 minute scene where he bonds with his shitty horse then another 15 minute scene where *SPOILER ALERT* he gets his WARHORSE to pull A PLOW!!!
