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.

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.
Great feel good family football movie.

Caught on the flight home from the UK.
This movie is amazing. Its a sport drama, but seeing what this kid went through was pretty incredible. Bit of a tear jerker. Must be the lack of sleep ;)
I liked this movie because of the generosity of a family, and how cute that black guy was, going through such antough time, not having a bed, house or family but in the end of the day becoming a member of the football hall of fame, as the cover amaingly represents.
I really cant say much about this movie as i watched it last year so i dont really remember it much, but when i see it again which will be in a couple days, i will either give it a lower or higher mark. Obviously.

Lehet az imdb-n badgeket gyűjteni például azzal, hogy az adott év kiemelt Oscar filmjeit értékeljük. Szóval most ezen vagyok és a Blind Sidedal meg is lett a 2010-es. Egyébként nem hiába nem néztem meg eddig. Igazából nincs egy pontja sem, amivel megfoghatna (sport, Sandra Bullock, vallás). Ráadásul nagyon idegesítő itt, az a tenyérbemászó fajta, minek kellett ezért Oscart adni? John Lee Hancock írta/rendezte, aki a Saving Mr. Bankset, a Snow White and the Huntsmant és a Perfect Worldöt csak írta (ezt a hármat ismerem). Utóbbi határeset, de azért látszik ez a merő geil utóíz, ami az összest jellemzi. Hiába, senki nem tud kilépni a bőréből, úgy hogy köszönöm John Lee Hancock, többet nem kérek.
Love a good true story.
I am not a Bullock fan, but I like to think that this is the truest of her character.
this really is a must see film.
It's not without its merits, but it flaunts so many platitudes of inspirational white savior drivel that it never really rises above mediocrity.
"The Blind Side" is cheesy, but since it's based on a real story I'm quite impressed!
I know, many people will call it a manipulative film, but I don't really look on the "dark side" of life and I'm just calling it touching! It's a sweet story (inspired by real life events) that tries to teach you how to respect other people, how to be strong inside and how to try harder in your life! It's message might be simple and basic, but that's the real deal! To make things even better, it has a beautiful cinematography and some great acting (which also won an Oscar for Best Female Leading Role). Bullock's a badass!
Probably Bullock's standout movie performance and for me deserving of the Oscar win. A brilliant movie.

I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
