I know. I said I wasn’t going to see a movie last weekend but I scored some free movie passes and I couldn’t just let them sit there. Right? So I went and saw The Blind Side.
I don’t know where Sandra Bullock came from in this film, but it wasn’t her typical self. You won’t see the normal ditsy and flirtatious Bullock in this film. No, sir.
Why do I think it’s so good? For starters, it’s real. Yes, it’s dramatized and Hollywoodized, but it’s a real story about real life, about good people that did the right thing. The movie is also very moving. It brings you right into the story, feeling like you’re part of it.
In the end, I’d call it one of those feel-good movies. First, you’ll feel grateful for whatever you have — because it’s probably better then what Michael Oher and his acquaintances have — and you’ll feel good that there’s at least some semblance of decency left in this world.
If you haven’t seen The Blind Side yet, I’d check it out. You can also see how all the other movies did this weekend in the Box Office.
