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.
The Blind Side will forever be one of my favorite films of all time. I always love a great sports movie, but with the touching story it brings just makes it even better. Being based on a true story, it is said to think this actually happened but also heart warming to know it ended in a highly positive way. Sandra Bullock is quite the actor and did a great job at playing the role of Michael Oher's "new momma."
A pretty faultless rags-to-riches story, this one based on true events. But I don't see why Bullock got the Oscar other than ... maybe it was a weak year? She’s good, but I can’t recall this role requiring much from her. The film brings nothing new to the table but it's not at all bad. It’s actually moving in places. Overall, an engaging watch.
Less than a touchdown, but more than a tackle.
All football movies are the same. Except for this one. The movie
Trys to fit in family but it doesn't work
Good movie but, overall nothing new here.
I've seen this before. And I watched it again. And I still like Sandra Bullock in this. It's not Oscar worthy or anything, but I still like her in it. And that is a tough thing for me to say as before that the last thing I liked Sandra Bullock in was probably Demolition Man.
I won't admit it in public but she's just beaten me down into liking her. Her smile at the end after the "God and Lawrence Taylor" line...wonderful. I'm still not watching All About Steve though. Sorry, Sandy.
this movie shows that their are still some saints in the world this movie is great and I love it
Great movie love it big time
This is one of the most racist movies I've ever seen. It's actually trying to make you believe that all african-americans are either potential rapists (preferably white middle-aged women), who are stuck in ghettos, or slightly retarded individuals who doesn't find their real potential until they're taken under the wing of some obscenely rich and powerful white people who tells them what to do and think. And it's Academy-award rewarded. For shame.
