Welcome to this website. It's all about media; my name is Oliver and I review films, and also games, books, and a good TV Series. I enjoy writing my opinions on something I've recently watched/read/played, I hope you enjoy them too. So please, have a read, comment if you like and maybe even share it with others; it's nice to know people like my little hobby. Thanks for stopping by, come again soon!
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.
