Simply wow! How that happened?!
I love Dreamer. It's not so much about even about the racing/the horse as it is about the relations in family. I think all actors were great.
I've seen Black Stallion, and have to say wasn't impressed at all. Same about Horse Whisperer - darn boring (plus the end of the movie is just hmmmmmmm....
Seabiscuit is a nice movie.
Racing Stripes - hilarious (although very kiddie of course :) ).
Spirit - cartoon, but I really liked it.
I wanted to rent Secretariat and never managed to do that. Thinking if I want to buy it to watch. Is it worth it? Is it like Dreamer or more like Seabiscuit?
