    Hidalgo - 03/05



    From Hollywood.com

    Synopsis: Held yearly for centuries, the Ocean of Fire--a 3,000 mile survival race across the Arabian desert--was a challenge restricted to the finest Arabian horses ever bred, the purest and noblest lines, owned by the greatest royal families. In 1890, a wealthy sheik invited an American, Frank T. Hopkins, and his horse to enter the race for the first time. During the course of his career, Hopkins was a cowboy and dispatch rider for the U.S. cavalry--and had once been billed as the greatest rider the West had ever known. The Sheik puts his claim to the test, pitting the American cowboy and his mustang, Hidalgo, against the world's greatest Arabian horses and Bedouin riders--some of whom are determined to prevent a foreigner from finishing the race. For Frank, the Ocean of Fire becomes not only a matter of pride and honor, but a race for his very survival as he and his horse attempt the impossible.

    I've been looking forward to this one for a while now. I hope my expectations aren't too high.

    I'm glad to see Vigo M. gets to put all that horseback riding training to use. I am so ready for this movie to come out.

    Viggo Mortensen and Omar Sharif, this should be a good movie. I like the storyline and I am pondering if this would be "pay the babysitter worthy"...
    ps. This is just my opinion in the matter.

    I'd rate it "baby sit with folks" worthy, not sure if it rates a paid babysitter night.

    All the LOTR movies were sitter-worthy, though.

    Unless you have a big screen, it won't do that "wall of sand scene" justice.

    Okay, I finally clued in that Hidalgo is the name of the horse. That settles it, I have to see this movie!

    Am I the only one who didn't know that?

    Nope, I didn't know that either hep.

    I think I'll probably try and get to the theatre to see this one.
