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.
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
"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.
My mum was watching this so I did like 6 sudoku's. This film wasn't very good and I don't know how I feel about it so here is a poem.
Llama in the wing mirror,
red shopping cart,

I'm Richard Feynman.
GIRL YOUR BACKSTROKE,
IS FINE MAN,
THIS AINT NO JOKE.

I DON't GIVE a crap,

No roof on this car,
who's that on your lap?
It's the llama.
Um daqueles filmes que eu assistiria várias vezes <3
Sandra Bullock is bloody underrated.
Dull, sentimental claptrap elevated by offensive paternalism to epic levels of shittiness.
The Blind Side adds nothing new neither to the sports genre or to biopics in general, but, in my opinion, this is a really well-made little film that without aiming too high it managed to entertain me, move me, and make me have a really pleasant time. Based on an inspiring true story, it also featured solid acting, particularly Quinton Aaron in a very heartwarming performance as Michael Oher and Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne Tuohy, his adoptive mother.
More racist than Birth of a Nation.
Text book feel good movie from zero to hero. Not having a go, it was great, Bullock deserved the Oscar too.
Great story. Better movie than I expected.
Actually not a bad one. I enjoyed Sandra Bullock in this way more than in say Gravity.
