Round 1, Match 1: The Black Stallion versus War Horse

DAY 1!

The Black Stallion versus War Horse

The Black Stallion (1979)

While traveling with his father, young Alec becomes fascinated by a mysterious Arabian stallion who is brought on board and stabled in the ship he is sailing on. When it tragically sinks both he and the horse survive only to be stranded on a desert island. He befriends it, so when finally rescued, both return to his home where they soon meet Henry Dailey, a once-successful trainer. Together they begin training the stallion to race against the fastest horses in the world.

War Horse (2011)

Young Albert enlists to serve in World War I after his beloved horse is sold to the cavalry. Albert's hopeful journey takes him out of England and to the front lines as the war rages on. (Pictured: Benedict Cumberbatch with the title horse. You're welcome.)

So, which one should advance?


  1. i'll be curious to see how this one turns out ;)

  2. People who voted for War Horse need their heads examined! :)

    1. All I got out of war horse was "horses were treated really shittily in WWI and Hollywood thinks I'm dumb enough to believe this horse is the same thing all throughout." For real. Black Stallion ALL THE WAY.

  3. haha Lauren - I hate the Black Stallion and love War Horse :P

  4. Hang on, Cumberbatch was in War Horse???
