The Blind Side
Based on the extraordinary true story
Oversized African American Michael Oher, the teen from across the tracks and a broken home, has nowhere to sleep at age 16. Taken in by an affluent Memphis couple, Leigh Anne and Sean, Michael embarks on a remarkable rise to play for the NFL.
My big fat black pet.
Review In A Nutshell:
I am actually going to keep this review in a size of a nutshell since it is already around 8:30 pm, and to review at this time usually leads me to a series of yawns that further extends the writing process. John Lee Hancock, the film’s director, has taken an inspiring subject, a boy, Michael Oher, who has escaped the tragedies of his past and culture, finding solace under the roof and care of a sympathetic middle class Caucasian woman, Leigh Anne Tuohy, and her family. Michael’s journey is familiar, but contains the potential to raise strong points of social class and blind, thoughtful charity. Leigh was a woman who has finally seen the struggling conditions…
So sentimental and manipulative that it hurts.
At least it had some nice cinematography.
I should've just watched the Lily Collins clips on Youtube
A stirring drama that explores the dangers of affirmative action, Christian values, obesity and being sassy
It's attempts at emotional manipulation are bordering on vulgar. True story? Sure, stereotypes are based on truth as well, but they're always shallow representations of reality. This film is nothing more than that, something even Bullock's slightly less mediocre performance than normal can save.
Soooooooo why did Sandra Bullock win an Oscar for this one-note performance? Call me confused.
A safe performance in a safe movie that was pretty much forgettable the second it ended. It wasn't really bad or anything, just wasn't all that good either. I had pretty low expectations and it didn't even meet that. Nothing worse than having nothing to say at all.
Surprisingly good, in all its Oscar-baiting glory.
I can't even fully explain why I like this film this much. It is just a feeling or something. The family love is something I really want, maybe that is it. Go watch it.
It's a typical story of a white woman (family) coming to the rescue of an unfortunate black child. But I did cry so I'll give it 3 stars.
Good. Not sure if I think it's worth all of the hype. Though it is one of the better sports movies in my opinion.
i liked the credits more than the actual movie
Makes me emotional every time, one of my absolute favourites.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Big black guy joins a football team, fucks people up. Great, emotional story (as it's true) and the lot. Highly recommend watching it even if you aren't into american football.
The Oscars are blinded by cheap, white, underdog films... that pun was intended!
Motivation over 9000....
movies I strongly dislike... ok I hate them and am terrible at explaining why
