The Blind Side review
This movie was absolutely awful. Annoying, cliched, cheesy, over-long, racist, ect. It was okay in the beginning, but it got worse and worse. Sandra Bullock wasn't bad, but her accent was terrible. The problem is that her character spends most of the film being pushy and sassy and it's good in some moments, but it gets old after a while. She has some good moments, but they're too underwritten for her to really do something great. Why is she getting all this awards attention?!! No idea. But I'm still predicting that she will win though. If she does, she will most likely receive a low spot on my Best Actress ranking. Speaking of that, I bought the film Coquette yesterday and I was thrilled to have found it since it is hard to find. I also will check out a copy of Two Women (in Italian) at the Library and when I watch that, Butterfield 8, Roman Holiday, and The Three Faces Of Eve, I will be done with the 1960's and the 1950's. After that, I'll be taking a break from the Best Actress films and I might do a Best Actress analysis (like Fritz and Alex in Movieland do) for 1962. So, what do you think of The Blind Side if you have seen it? Did you like or dislike Sandra Bullock's performance?
