To date we’ve have over 500,000 complaints from people frustrated by the lack of horses featured on our website. So in tenuous honour of Steven Spielberg’s upcoming horsefest War Horse, BFF and our trusty equine assistant Mr Jingles bring you the Top 10 Horse Moments in Films Not Specifically About Horses. Or, in other words, the Top 10 Horse Cameos.
To celebrate the upcoming release of War Horse (and an all-girl, no Underwood BFF team) we decided to delve into the film archive and pull out (you guessed it!) the Top 10 Film Horses. Just for the record, this was never intended to happen; I pitched an article about novel-to-movie adaptations and, somehow, we ended up shaking on an equine extravaganza. From the likes of Troy and The Lord Of The Rings, all the way up to Shrek and Disney, it seems we’ve got enough material to keep even the most avid pony-philes happy…
Over the years we have sat back with our families, with various sugary goods, and have indulged ourselves in some quality CGI filled entertainment courtesy of Pixar. But who do we rave about when they’re over? Well it certainly isn’t the man who made it all possible.

Have you ever wondered how Disney might ultimately bridge the gap between its princess tradition and their more recent flirtations with CG? Ultimately a winning mix of The Princess and the Frog’s charm and Bolt’s comedy timing, Tangled certainly delivers on most levels – just not all of them.
2011 is the year of the toon, bringing us animated movies galore from Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks and their like whether we want it or not. Here’s our rundown of animations due to hit the box office in 2011. Think we missed one? Let us know. Our word for today is ‘completist’.
Don’t get too moist in your downstairs partyhouse, this sadly isn’t a full clip of Disney’s next blockbuster. However, short as it is, this little peeklet of Tangled – Disney’s new look at the tale of Rapunzel – does let us have a nosey at the style of the film.
Disney has revealed – via facebook of all places – that’s it’s 2010 release based on the story of Rapunzel is going to be entitled Tangled. It could spell the end of the Disney tradition of naming their films after their central character, as it seems that the studio is worried that calling the film Rapunzel would alienate boys and prevent them from wanting to see it.
