    “War Horse” Movie Review

    (epic (Gone with the Wind) feel, intense, but predictable) – – Despite what you see in the trailer and the title, “War Horse” this is not really a “war” movie.  Although World War I plays a large part, this is really a story of a horse, a boy, and the love they have for each […]

Stiller is the general manger of a fancy high rise apartment building in New York City […]
