Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron - Movie ALL Horse Lovers Should Know!
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have watched this movie since I was a kid. It was a personal favorite when I was home sick with the flu, especially if I couldn't sleep.

So, I want to know how many of you have seen this movie, and if you have any stories about it? Or just your overall opinion on the film.

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum. :-)

Thanks for looking.

LOL, I must be getting old - I read what you posted and went "Since she was a kid???? Didn't it just come out a few years ago?" It's been 8 years!

Loved the movie, and absolutely ADORE the soundtrack.

Looooove it. I'm looking for it on DVD on the internet since I can't find my VHS version, but the version I'm looking for is hard to come by.

Oh, I used to watch it all the time! Not to mention, I had the computer game too!

That was my thought too! I don't remember that movie until only a few years ago. It's a nice movie, though. A girl I babysit LOVES watching it.

I liked it better than I thought I would when I saw the previews. My daughters used to watch the first 15 minutes (the parts where he is still little) over and over again. I definitely like the voice they used in the actual film better than the voice in the preview. I also liked that all the talking was in his head (or as a narrator) and he was like a regular horse to the humans, not some twisted Disney version of a talking horse.

I do think they gloss over the whole how he took over for his father part (makes it seem like his father just graciously stepped down, or some horrible accident - not at all related to the healthy growing new stallion :wink: - took him out of the picture - but this is a kids film after all).

There were definitely some parts that made me tear up - I especially liked the part where he's given up hope because he thinks the Indian mare died, and he's loaded onto the train, and he sees his family in the swirling snow.

The animation is reasonably well done, though they have some trouble integrating the computer animation with the drawn animation.

I do, however, love the soundtrack.
