    Randall Wallace (best known as the writer of Braveheart) helms this Disney true story horse-racing drama, that's family-friendly in the fact it's completely inoffensive, but will absolutely bore the little ones rigid, and likely many adults too. I want to like Diane Lane in this more, as a woman who is not content to be a housewife and stands up in a male-dominated world while dealing with the grief of her parents, but all her dialogue in this film is…

    I took the kiddos to the theater this weekend. At first glance it appeared that there was nothing new out this week and surely nothing as eye catching as last weeks The Social Network and Let Me In. I wasn't entirely right, but I wasn't entirely wrong either.

    Secretariat is based on the true story of the last horse to win the triple crown and the family that raised him. The movie starts off as pretentious as it is preachy.…

    This movie broke my heart, and changed the way I look at things. I loved it but cannot, for some unfathomable reason, put into words my true feelings for this movie.

    The two hours of this 2010 biographical film produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Mayhem Pictures won't give you any new breaking directorship skills or camera work... Randall Wallace decided to give us back what movies once had - heart warming and rousing feeling with traditional touch. The film chronicles the life of Secretariat, the 1973 race horse winner of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing. Diane Lane superbly portrays Secretariat's owner, Penny Chenery, and John Malkovich plays the part…

    Pretty solid horse movie. It tries to connect to the historical setting like Seabiscuit, but it doesn't really do it as well. The rest of the story, while it's what you would expect, is great to watch.

    Possibly the greatest Thoroughbred of all time does not make for a great movie. Just watch the YouTube clips of his races.

    That the film opens with an inspirational bible quote on determination and self-belief makes it very clear the approach Disney has chosen for their biopic on the ubiquitous race horse. This, like so many films before it, is about the pursuit of the American Dream; about chasing success no matter the cost. The timing of its release is perhaps unfortunate, then, in economic times when things are looking very bleak on this side of the pond.…
