At The Movies

I went and saw War Horse today, which is a very old fashioned movie. It reminded me of Black Beauty mixed with All's Quiet on the Western Front. I'm sure that some will be put off by its earnestness, its lack of irony, its sentimentality, and its unabashed audience manipulation, but I must admit that I wept through large portions of it.  Those who are cooler than I will no doubt be howling with indignation when it receives multiple Oscar nominations (while I consider any serious contemplation of the Academy Awards as more than a pop culture sideshow to be a sign of immaturity).  Well, so be it, but I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the film immensely.

Kross My Heart

I've been seeing these gorgeous photos on Tumblr a lot lately, and since someone kindly gathered them together and posted them on Famous Male Forums, I thought I'd share them here as well.  It's the lovely and very talented 20 year old German actor, David Kross, best known to English-speaking audiences for his virtuoso turn in The Reader, here photographed by the master, Bruce Weber.  David will next be seen in Steven Spielberg's drama The War Horse.
