Sandra Bullock was my favorite starlette for many years; yet, I miss her playing characters like the ones she did in “Speed,” “Demolition Man,” “While You Where Sleeping” and even “Love Potion No. 9.”
She has done other good movies (i.e.: “Miss Congeniality” and “Premonition”), but I never felt the Sandra that I love in he others. So yes, this brings us to her new movie: “The Blind Side.”
The clips below show various scenes for “The Blind Side.” In these, it seems we are getting a Sandra that I’ve never seen before and, at the same time, it’s like all her other characters combined.
These clips also set the story for us, but dont give away everything — even if we already know the outcome of the story. That’s what intrigues me about this movie, I believe this is Sandra’s first “based on a true story” movie.
Is this a sad movie, or a motivational success story? The story of Michael Oher is already well known, his success story is a very inspiring. But now, with this movie, we get to go behind the trials that the one time homeless, under-educated teenager had to endure, as well as the family that took him in.
In the clips below there are tender scenes, and funny ones. Yet, this movie is not a comedy, it is a very real portrayal of the unfortunate life many inherit and how others — the luckier ones — sometimes use their better fortune to help others.
“The Blind Side” was released Nov. 20.
