The Blind Side

December 29, 2011

It’s no wonder that Sandra Bullock won an oscar for this movie. I love her movies, but this one is truly amazing. It came out in 2009 and is based on a true story about a boy named Michael Oher. He was a homeless and traumatized boy who became an All American football player and first round NFL draft pick with the help of a caring woman and her family. Sandra Bullock plays Leigh Anne, the caring woman/ mother who takes Michael into her home when she sees that he has nowhere else to go. He had lived a horrible life in a bad neighbourhood with a drug addict mother. All of his teachers thought he couldn’t learn anything and wouldn’t amount to anything. They were wrong.

Michael is a very sweet guy who is extremely loyal and protective of the ones he cares about. The things he says and the pains he had to live through make you want to cry at certain points in the movie. Even though he has been through so much, he is still so strong. This should make the audience realize that even though we all have horrible things happen in our lives, we should be grateful of what we have.

The movie also stars Tim McGraw as Leigh Anne’s husband Sean and introduces Quinton Aaron as Michael. It’s a little over two hours long, but definitely worth taking that two hours to watch. The movie has it’s funny moments, as well as sad moments and those moments that make you have to smile.

I’m not even sure what else to say about this movie to make you want to watch it, but it’s really amazing. If you like any of these things/ people, watch this movie:

1. Sandra Bullock movies

2. You want to watch a movie with Tim McGraw (I’m not a country fan and didn’t even realize he was in this for the longest time, but he is pretty good in this movie)

3. Movies based off of true events/ stories

4. Movies that are heartwarming

5. Movies that make you believe in people

6. Movies with a nice ending

7. Movies with football

OR, if you just want to watch a new movie that is really good. Some of those movies that win oscars are not very good, but this one really is. Please go and watch it, and let me know what you think of it.

    We watch that movie at school every year with the kids. It is a great teaching moment and just an inspiring movie. Love it!

  3. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
