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.
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.
Vaya melodrama. Me encanta.
Típico filme para concorrer ao Oscar. História edificante, baseada em fatos reais, narrativa do underdog, lotada de personagens de grande caráter. Sobre a história baseada em fatos reais, o filme por si só é uma obra completa, bem resolvida; mas ver que a base da narrativa é oriunda de uma história real e conhecida da sociedade americana traz uma camada de emoção incrível à sessão de cinema.
Quinton Aaron, que vive Michael Oher, é gigante em sua silenciosa presença no filme – e não por conta de seu tamanho. Sandra Bullock levou o Oscar por sua atuação, completamente merecida. Sua interpretação da mãezona ricaça é monumental – sem dúvida um de seus melhores trabalhos.
The Blind Side é um daqueles…
fuck this movie
Yep it's still great and full of happy heart warming moments . Uses the standard formula . Down and out . Progress is made . Set back . Grand finale .... And don't we all feel better .
Sandra bullock was Sandra bullock . At least she wasn't on a bus or a space ship this time . I swear every time she hops on some form of transport . Something bad happens
Are there really families like this ? My family being a cluster fuck, you watch it and get sentimental fuzzy feel good; this is a true story, I hope there many humans who practice humanity, who choose to change somebody's life for the better.
I decided to give this movie 4 instead of 5 because it made me feel like a little bitch for crying like a baby.
As we near the kickoff to Oscar season, I figured it would be appropriate for the site to have a…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
