Every time I see a trailer for War Horse, I feel like I’m in The Emperor’s New Clothes. Does no one else see that this movie is about a horse that apparently single-handedly wins World War One? Does no one else find that absurd?

To be fair, neither of us have seen war horse. I almost did, but decided that no matter how good (or bizarre) it was, it couldn’t possibly live up to the Escher-esque nightmare I imagine it to be.
