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.
I like "feel good movies" and this is one of the top ones... because it is a real story! Teenager Michael Oher (superb role by Quinton Aaron) is surviving on the streets on his own, when spotted by Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock). Learning that the young man is one of her daughter's classmates, Leigh Anne insists that "Big" Michael - wearing shorts and a t-shirt only in winter - comes with them out of the cold. And that's how the remarkable true story of All-American football star Michael Oher took it's turn! Michael becomes part of the Tuohy family despite the differences in their backgrounds and fulfills his potential, both on and off the football field. John Lee Hancock used everything he had in the best possible way, especially the star of this movie: Sandra Bullock!
Embarrassing and insulting, but good for some yuks.
This movie blows mad chunks.
People liked this movie.
ZEVEL shit ass movie about a rich white family who saves the sad poor black dude from the hood and teaches him a valuable lesson:(((
The Blind Side is a great movie, for anyone. I just would not be able to understand why someone couldn't like this movie. All the characters are all so loveable. Quinton Aaron plays one of the most loveable role I have ever seen and a movie and he does it by speaking very few words considering he is in a lead role. That is something to be proud off. Sandra Bullock also plays one of the best performances if not the best performance of her career. I need to watch more of her stuff. Plus the supporting characters are just so good and the family is just so cute like Tim McGraw is like the perfect father figure. Jae Head…
The Blind Side is an incredible and moving film and Sandra Bullock gives a great performance.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
THE BLIND SIDE - DIE GROSSE CHANCE
SANDRA BULLOCK als blondes Wohlstandsmuttchen unterstützt den jungen MICHAEL OHER auf seinem Weg Richtung NFL...eine schwere Kindheit, Diskriminierung und andere Hindernisse halten die Beiden nicht auf...nicht einmal KATHY BATES, die als Privatlehrerin ihrem Schützling Misery Like vermutlich gerne mal die Knie zertrümmert hätte! :-D
Eine brilliant aufspielende SANDRA BULLOCK und die Autobiografie von MICHAEL OHER machen den Film absolut sehenswert. Auch wenn es in dem Film um Football geht, ist er für Laien gut verständlich.
