Whoooooooooooo! Go, boy! Go!

Seabiscuit: my reserved critical opinion?

Best thing since sliced bread. With peanut butter.

And I'm not just saying that because it's a horse movie, 'cause really the horses are a backdrop as much as anything. Although the animal they have playing War Admiral is frelling perfect. Near-black, a mountain of a horse. Gorgeous.

Best line is something very much like "Keep your hands off me, you sons of bitches." Only in horse.

***

Words since Seabiscuit: 1479, making the day's total 2,497.
Reason for stopping: Done with the letter. Done with the POV. Done.Done.Done.Done.Done.Done.Done.Done.

Horse movies usually annoy me as overly sappy, but this one struck the right balance.

It feels very true.
