The Blind Side

Last night I managed to get a rare outing to the cinema to see The Blind Side and yes to all my American friends I know it was out ages ago over there but we have only just got it over here.

My friends that go to the cinema on a regular basis gave it mixed reviews but for me I thought it was awesome. I love feel good films where you come out feeling happy, empowered and thinking the world is a better place.

The film really showed you that no matter how bad your situation that if you keep on moving and doing the right thing you can make it and that your luck can change through the main character of the film Michael Oher. In our own lives we start thinking about how bad our situations are and use it as a reason for not succeeding but then when you contrast your life with someone like Michael Oher its not that bad and its not impossible to achieve.

The other side of the film I really enjoyed was the educational side. Michael in the film had problems writing his answers down on paper so tested badly and people thought he wasn’t intelligent but when a teacher gave him a test verbally he excelled. The film also proved that someone’s worth and someone’s skills should not be judged on their ability in class but by their character. Michael in the film before he gets help is marked as very unintelligent but has a protective spirit which is unmatched and its his protective spirit of other people around him which get him to where he goes in life and achieving a scholarship to college.

I would highly implore people to watch this movie as you can’t help but be inspired by it.

I thought it was a great movie. As a football player I thought there were some pretty unrealistic moments in the movie (I mean a mom taking over the football practice, really?) but the main storyline was fantastic! Definitely worth the price of an on-demand!!

I haven't seen the Blind side, but since you pointed out we will realize something after we watch it now I decided to see it over the weekend. I want movies like this, I want movies that convey the meaning of life.
