The Blind Side is a bad movie.

It's got a feelgood plot and everything, but geez.

Outside of Sandra Bullock, the acting is horrid.

The writing is super predictable.

It's like if someone was to write fan-fiction about Michael Oher's personal story.

Too cheesey. All of the "bad guys" in the film are hilariously dumb caricatures, and the characters don't talk or interact like real people.

Anyway.

What were we talking about?

Meh, I enjoyed the movie. I don't really care how accurate it was.

I never watched it. I don't generally like those kitschy sports movies.

It wasn't really portrayed very well in the movie, but I think it was more of the fact that he was undereducated (as in teachers not caring or taking the time with him). They didn't exactly say how far along he came in his academics.

I agree though. The actor didn't do a good job in that regard either.

My new girlfriend (whose movie repertoire is almost entirely limited to bad romantic comedies) got all taken aback when I said I hadn't seen this movie. Sounds like I'm going to have to watch this pretty soon.

It wasn't that bad. It wasn't meant to be a classic movie. It was poorly acted and formulaic but so are most movies. I agree with others, McGraw does seem to maybe have some acting talent.

Bullock was hot in the movie. Of all the suck ass movies that come out every year, this one didn't even make the top 50 bad movies of the year.

I thought it was entertaining. I'm sure alot of movies like this are exaggerated in terms of the storyline; why they were made etc.

I watched Saw III, IV, and V yesterday. I've never had any desire to see any of them. But, at the insistance of my brother etc, I gave it a go.

I'll admit, I was entertained. lol. I still need to see the first 2 though.

As a lover of bad romantic comedies, I will let you know that this is not one. Just a good ol' feel good movie. But, hey, there's football and football coaches trying to act in it. I don't think you'll suffer too much.

Oher's character was such a stereotypical "big, quiet black guy is a gentle giant, but he will crush you if you are mean to his rich, white family who show him love in a way his original shitty, poor, black family didn't/couldn't...also, he seems dumb and is easily confused by his new life with white people, but he has a wisdom about him that shines through when you get to know him" that it ruined the entire story.

Add in the "black bad guys are so violent that they pull out their guns any time someone even thinks of disagreeing with them" trope, and you've got a true abortion of a film.

It's so patronizing that it ends up being horribly racist while trying to be the opposite. The black guy isn't a person...he's a pet. He's too dumb to take care of himself, so a family has to take care of him. In return, he is loyal to the family, and the viewer's heart breaks when someone dares wrong this sweet and gentle creature.
