10 years of Flick Filosopher: a horse of a different color

If I had to pick a very favorite genre of film, it would probably be the big-budget Hollywood action drama done up in the old-fashioned way. From my review of Hildago:

Like movies about dogs, horse stories are never bad even when they’re bad, and this is a great one. It’s a romance, really, between Hopkins and Hidalgo, and how intense is it? Mortensen actually ended up purchasing T.J., the horse who plays Hidalgo in closeups, the one he actually acted with the most, and usually when leading men are so consumed with a desire to possess their costars, they have to marry them. That passion is all up on the screen — the horse is even a damn good actor, too, or just loves Viggo as much as we all do. They’re even funny together.
