Steven Spielberg‘s latest Academy Award nominated film, War Horse, has been announced for Blu-Ray this April.
The horse drama that’s taking the Academy by storm has been nominated for a total of 6 awards. I wasn’t a fan of the film at all, but I can see where it might get some best cinematography support. The score was generic, the film was bland and the basic message about a boy and his strong bond with his horse was muddled and diluted thanks to Spielberg’s lack of primary focus.
Even our own Kristal Cooper didn’t have kind things to say about the film in her review. Here’s a snippet of her thoughts.
In the end, as engaging as War Horse occasionally is, Spielberg mostly resorts to giant Williams-enhanced, wide-screen moments to manipulate the sentiment that the story – remarkable horse or not – should have been able to elicit on its own.
Disney hasn’t announced the tech specs for the four disc Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack, but they have outlined the behind-the-scenes special features. Check out the list below.
