Movie Reviews

Speaking as a person who read the books...

"I have read every book that Walter and his son have written about the Black. The books always captured a child's point of view about horses. The dream of sailing off into the wind on the back of a really fast steed. I think Coppola captured that feeling in both of these movies. I like the quietness of the first one. The book was written to make you feel rather than listen to dialogue. There was little dialogue to begin with. Slightly off the subject, I think Walter had a passion about Seabisquit and had him in mind when he created the Black.
Kelly Reno was superb. A total natural around horses. Cass- ole was stunning, even in makeup. Oh, if the horse looks brown in the sunlight, remember this, no animal is truly black. They're all just a really dark shade of brown."
This always was my favorite...

"of the Black Stallion movies. I can't really tell you why except that I'd admired Alec's devotion to the horse and his persistance to find the Black despite the incredible odds against him. And then the end was so sad and touching because he put the Black's welfare above his own feelings. I also liked watching the blooming friendship between Alec and Vincent Spano's character. Very good movie. Highly recommend to lovers of horses and adventure."

"If you have read the book, or just have a horse crazy person in your house you MUST see the movie! THe backround music in The Black Stallion is incredible, it follows the horses movements! You almost feel as if you are ridding the Black!"
So nostalgic...

"Watching these movies brings me back to my early teenage years when Walter Farley's books were the ultimate for a horse crazy girl. Maybe they are not as sophisticated or technologically advanced as newer horse flicks, but they are special in their own right. Four different horses were used for this film, this explaining slight differences in appearance. In accordance to breed standards, an Arabian horse is the only horse that can be purely black, as the members of this breed have predominantly black skin, whereas other breeds have pink. A true black Arabian horse will not "bleach out" as a bay will. Anyhow, great movies for any horse lover."
