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.
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.
sandy b fuck me
I really enjoyed this movie. It was very touching and Sandra Bullock at her best. I was glad they didn’t use some huge violent climax to add drama and tension, it was short and, well, obviously not sweet, but it was not overly drawn out. I loved the message and especially that it was based on a true story. There were many great and well developed characters, and I liked the adorable hyperactive little brother as well as the fact that they didn't make the daughter a complete brat or a total do-gooder, they made her a really nice average girl. (not to mention I like lily Collins in basically anything) Great, Great movie.
The rare film that is both good and provides a positive portrayal of conservative, Southern evangelicals. Sandra Bullock earned all her accolades. Along with THE ROOKIE, John Lee Hancock shows that he may be the heir to David Anspaugh in the inspirational sports movie sub-genre.
Crível e, a certo ponto, emocionante. Mesmo assim, "Um Sonho Possível" é um trabalho incompleto e fraquíssimo. A única coisa que salva o filme é a atuação sublime da Sandra Bullock.
Bullock got an Oscar for this? Are you f------ kidding me?
What I got to say about "The Blind Side" is a great true story about life. "It's moving, heartbreaking/warming, and very touching." The performances by the whole cast is great. "Sandra Bullock gives one of her best performances of her career." She bring a lot of heart and soul to her character that show in three words - "love, care and supportive." The directing is good. The screenplay is well written. The cinematography is good. The score is great. Finally, the effects are good as well. "I'm raving that "The Blind Side" is a outstanding movie that is a must see movie."
I really enjoyed The Blind Side. I think that all of the acting was done very well and the story hit me hard. I always have sympathy for movies about the hard lives of a person and movies that make me realize how fortunate I am. That is why I really enjoyed The Blind Side, I also loved seeing Mike excel and become a successful football player. What makes it better is that it is a true story.
"I said you could thank me later. It's later, Burt."
I was impressed the first time I saw this film. It wasn't quite what I had expected it to be and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I had never heard of the story of Michael Oher and it was a pretty compelling underdog tale. The story is a tad bit oversentimental, but that can be forgiven considering the type of situations and family drama that it deals with. It is helped by the touches of humor that string together the story, as well as the superbly cast characters. All of the actors do a great job at portraying the family and the relationships among them…
A movie to watch with your mother. I'm not a fan of gushy drama but this movie does it to a T.
