Welcome to my website! Here I review mostly films and television series but also take a look at books and games when the interest takes me. I don't have any sort of schedule and my ratings are out of 10. I hope you enjoy reading my reviews but as with most things entertainment is subjective so you may disagree but I always welcome comments so feel free to leave one. Thanks very much for stopping by and I hope you visit again! - Oliver.
After seeing the movie I was interested of how the book went as it had come out first. It is a Michael Morpurgo book and I had read some of his other ones and I really liked them, no naturally I was looking forward to War Horse. Now, when you're reading you can definitely see it is meant for younger people, say 7-13 or something. I liked how it was done but it was all very simple and changed from one thing to another quickly whereas in the film they blended one scene into another. I didn't realise how much the film changed; parts that look maybe 2 days in the book took five minuets in the film and I think they missed out a whole week from the book. I don't know if my review would be different if I'd read the book first but this time I'm not as keen on it as Morpurgo's other books which I think are brilliant. So for me I prefer the film but the book does give a little information on the horse and background to the rest of the world.
