War Horse

Nothing can separate a boy and his horse—not even war. That’s the story behind Steven Spielberg’s adaptation the 1982 children’s novel by Michael Morpurgo. With a plot like that, you can expect to shed a few tears. The film doesn’t have a Seabiscuit-style cast, but it did receive mostly positive reviews and six Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture.

Like many horse movies, this is a magnificent beast of a Blu-ray with a 2.40:1 aspect ratio and a thunderous 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. There’s also a good dose of extras, with featurettes on the story, the sound, Spielberg, and more.

Rating: PG-13
Runtime: 146 minutes
