Hard times can't keep Albert down. He keeps trying to move forward no matter what sad fate befalls him, separation from his beloved horse Joey among them. Do Tennessee viewers stand and applaud "War Horse," or is it undeserving of any medals?
"Fantastic film; beautiful. The film is touching in ways animal films typically can't manage. Joey is a beautiful creature that absolutely demands your ticket money." -- Christopher Bridges, 36, Memphis
"The trials and tribulations of war combines perfectly with animal companionship. I was not expecting this to be such a moving experience. Excellent work. A piece of exquisite art to end the year on." -- Linda Ladenburg, 26, Germantown
"I didn't really feel like going to the movies today. But my buds finally convinced me to see this. That said, it would have been nice if it hadn't dragged on so long. It seemed like relatively nothing happened in the last quarter of the film. I'm not totally disappointed -- because my expectations were already low." -- Bobby Mustard, 20, Southaven
"I never would have forgiven my father if he sold my horse! Even if it was for rent money! So much pain could have been avoided. Bravo, 'War Horse.' Bravo." -- Juliana Lima, 31, Millington
"My friends and I were talking early on only to shut the heck up the minute Joey got sold at the beginning. So sad. It sets the tone for a very dark, sad film. All the while you're faced with rays of hope that either don't pan out or simply aren't significant enough to deflect the bad. Great movie. Great, great movie." -- Elizabeth Carmine, 24, Bartlett
"Near the beginning I was really pulled in. They set up Albert [the main character] for tragedy and disappointed with no sign of hope or light at the end of the tunnel." -- Jennifer Rose, 37, Memphis
"I felt a little irritated spending some of my Christmas money on this. Big letdown. Do yourself a favor. Buy some Milk Duds and stay home." -- Tina Ripple, 19, Memphis
