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.
"The Blind Side" is a straightforward film about family and football with its focus more heavily placed on the former. Moving without being maudlin, the film has tons of warmth and heart; it's very much worth seeing.
This is such a good movie. I nearly cried and it was so sad and I felt like I was there with them.
American football ..... I liked it but also dint
Raysizm is bad and wite peoples is gud
Poderia ser mais um clichê, mas é um ótimo filme.
I still want to know how this movie gave an Oscar to Sandra Bullock.
This film is extremely manipulative and I hate that.
La verdad es que casi todas las películas que veo protagonizadas por Sandra Bullock me suelen gustar, pero esta es que además es preciosa y tiene muchas lecciones que transmitir. Aparentemente parece que la familia de acogida tuviera que enseñar mucho a un chico que ha tenido tan mala vida y que tiene que ser acogido, pero es al revés, es él el que les enseña tanto a todos. Os la recomiendo mucho.
Una historia sobre la voluntad, la superación y la solidaridad. A veces casi parece que te están contando un "cuento de hadas" pero es una alegría saber que está basada en hechos reales y que de verdad existe gente así de maravillosa en el mundo.
Amazing true story. Bullock at her best. :)
I know I'm late to the game, but I found this movie to be really overrated. I know it was based on a true story but C'MON. Every cute one liner from Sandra Bullock felt so obvious. This is not real people act or talk or behave. There was so little conflict that I didn't know why I was even watching it. Plus the whole "look at this nice white family taking in a poor black kid, isn't it nice?" just felt icky.
I realize some of these cast a VERY white lens on the black experience. I'm including them in my list…
