    "The Blind Side"

    I saw this movie this afternoon and came away very, very impressed. Great story, very heart-warming and inspirational without being overly preachy or sappy. Sandra Bullock gives a great performance and also, it must be added, looks smokin' hot in it as well.

    Based off the story of Michael Oher. Great Story

    Re: "The Blind Side"

    Sandra is probably my favorite actress of them all. One, because she gives off that "girl you'd love to hang out with" and two, she does a phenomenal job of adapting to whichever role she takes on and does it convincingly. I'm anxious to see this movie


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Its ironic that Ole Miss gets Blind Sided by a Klan rally this weekend, their whole alumni base is embarrassed on the weekend the movie comes out.

    Re: "The Blind Side"

    For anyone that has seen it, did they make the NCAA look as evil as they actually were in real life?

    The NCAA bit only involved a small portion of the story but they did come off in a bad light.

    As well they should, IMO. They are an organization bereft of a conscience or soul, or logical or coherent thought. Screw 'em.

    Re: "The Blind Side"

    I just saw this movie over the weekend. If you are feeling down in the dumps, go see this movie. It will pick you right up.

    I almost hate to call it a sports movie, because "playing football" is not what the movie is about.

    Re: "The Blind Side"

    I noticed Oher is playing right tackle for the Ravens. After reading the book and the big deal they made about him being the perfect left tackle I wondered what happened. Is he just breaking in at right with a future move to left or is Flacco left-handed?

    Finally just saw this, and would recommend it to anyone. Great movie, and makes you realize how much you can really do to help people. Well worthwhile, I can see why it won awards.

    It was way too "disney" for my tastes, cute movie with a nice message, but hokey. The high school coach for example, he was way over the top.
