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.
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.
How can such a true story feel so fake?
Nothing more than yawn-inducing, uninspired, almost offensively manipulative drivel. The pacing is brutal and the attempts at tear-jerking drama are atrocious. stay away
I absolutely hated this film and all the CABLE movie channels who keep playing this film (my dad loved it). These overly sentimental stories of WHITE SALVATION doesn't need to be told. I have no against with Sandra Bullock (i think she's cool and brilliant), but her Oscar win in this film doesn't make any sense. Director John Lee Hancock doesn't really serve his characters that well, instead he interpret these individuals as mere caricatures which is agonizing. HATE HATE HATE.
'Big Mike' is a kid who has nothing, no parents, no friends and according to every school in the state, no future. Until one night when he is taken in by a local family and everything starts to change. I literally nearly cried when I found out this is based on a true story! This is the ultimate tale of human compassion and love, and really believing and putting your faith in another person, especially when they need it most. The characters are warm and you end up really caring about them and their future. The script is perfect, an effortless mixture between humour, heartfelt lines and general awesomeness. I thoroughly recommend this movie, whoever you are, I have no doubt that you will be touched by this wonderful story.
The problem is that at its heart, The Blind Side is a white savior narrative. This was my fear based on what little I knew going into the film, and that fear turned out to be well-founded. But as far as those go, it's also a film with uncommon senses of tact and empathy. It witholds judgment about characters and situations that similar films would've really dug into.
I can admire a lot of elements of the film's technique, I can admire Sandra Bullock's performance, but it's just so frustrating that all of these are in service to something as ugly as turning a living, breathing human being into a cartoon character to plug into a narrative that will make white people feel better. And at the end of the day, no amount of good acting or filmmaking will overcome a rotten core.

It's about football. No blindness involved.
Sweet, warm and touching, The Blind Side is one of those rare films that restores your faith in humanity's ability to care for one another. Boasting some delightful writing and strong performances, it is a beautiful display of the loving relationship between Michael Oher and Leigh Anne Tuohy.

Sure, Bullock did a good job, but the movie as a whole was not Oscar material. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it very much, but was a little underwhelmed.
Not a dry eye in the house.
