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.
"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.
A beautifully crafted, if somewhat over sentimental story about one upper class family battling prejudice by adopting an enormous mild mannered black man.
A well performed film that may just strum the heart strings too much to be taken seriously.
The best sports movie ever?
Una película de la vida real, una película que flecha mi vida. Vi esta película hace un tiempo pero volví a ver el trailer y recordé que es muy hermosa. Llevándola a nivel personal el papel de Sandra Bullock muestra mi voluntad indomable jajaja hay cosas que quizás ni siquiera las pensaría muchas veces para hacerlas y esta película muestra que estaría dispuesta hacer de una manera literal.
The Blind Side's such a heartwarming movie. :)
It's not terrible. In fact, I've seen worse sports and racial dramas this year (Invictus and Precious, respectively). This one is pretty harmless.
It's also, though, fairly useless. There's almost no dramatic tension built up, and the whole thing is Disneyized and sugarcoated. If they had expanded on the question of why Bullock and her family did this - something brought up but just as easily done away with - it could've been at least a little more interesting. Alas, it's not.
Lily Collins is in this film, don't forget that.
It's a real story.. you can't give it a bad rating
This movie was a pleasant surprise. I've put off watching it for almost five years now because despite all the accolades, it falls into so many movie categories I generally dislike: it's an inspirational sports movie that's set in the south and based on a true story. That's like four strikes against it right there.
While the plot itself is not that interesting to me, what does shine are the performances of Sandra Bullock and Quinton Aaron. They play their parts perfectly, breathing life into these characters and giving them depth in what could otherwise have been an extremely generic movie. I'm still not sure I could say that the movie *itself* is all that great, but it's well worth…
Performances are fine, and I appreciate that it is based on a true story, but I just did not buy that such a large boy living in our culture supposedly knew so little about football. No way!
Well this is it, this is according to me the worst film ever made. It isn't funny in all of it's bad and then you know that it's bad. Oh fuck!
This is the most racist, american, dumb, stereotypical, boring, shitfucked, poor-acted (even Kathy Bates is bad, then you have failed), sentimental, manipulative, rude, shitty-fucked-racistly-fuckelidodydodi directed piece of pure dogshit anyone ever produced in the history of mankind.
The academy-awards nominated it for best picture.
FUUUUUUUCK THAT SHIT MAN!!!!
I'm too angry to even care about grammars or spelling, yes I'm A Swede.
Halleluja white people!
And who did Sandra Bullock blow too get that "award" called Oscars? Because she did nooot deserve it.
