155. November 23, 2010 - Secretariat (2010)

I remember that I was surprised to see that Disney was the one producing this film, though I don't know why. It's the perfect underdog, come-from-behind story that Disney loves. It will inevitably be compared to Seabiscuit, but the tone is drastically different. Seabiscuit is a little more heavy and dark, whereas this has that rosy glow that Disney movies always seem to have. I will say that they did a good job building tension, even though everyone knows that Secretariat won the Triple Crown. The cast is okay, but I particularly loved seeing Nelson Ellis (Lafayette on True Blood), though I didn't recognize him at first without the glittery eyeliner.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
