The Blind Side

I am getting way old. And I hate it when I miss something that I’d planned to watched or attend. Usually what I do is to bookmark the site and remind self to go catch it. But 99.9% of the time I will still forget! So I hope by blogging here, and when friends and relatives see it and if they remember it, perhaps I will have someone kind enough to remind me to go catch the show I planned to when its out in the Cinemas. Or better still, buy me the DVDs when its available if I missed it! LOL!

Ok, so the first one to my new list here is The Blind Side.

“The Blind Side” depicts the remarkable true story of Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Touhys, a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher’s presence in the Touhys’ lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own. Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. As a football player and student, Oher works hard and, with the help of his coaches and adopted family, becomes an All-American offensive left tackle.

Thanks to Daniel’s tweet, I chanced upon this movie. And with Sandra Bullock in it and with such beautiful story, the Cancerian in me is NOT going to miss it! The show opens Novemeber 20th!

I have no time to catch her current show The Proposal and I’m already hating myself. But The Blind Side, I WILL NOT miss! Someone, anyone! Please help remind me when it opens here in Singapore will you? Thank you very much!

  1. I read parts of this book (the ones about Oher, not all the technical football stuff) and absolutely loved it. I really hope that this movie stays true to the original story, because this is one true story that needs no Hollywood embellishments to bring tears to even the most uptight person.

    I’ve been waiting for this movie for awhile, but only just now saw the trailer and that is getting me even more excited. I also thought it was cool that they used a snippet of the song “Kill the Messenger” by Jack’s Mannequin in the 2nd trailer (about 45 seconds in), because the singer also has an inspirational personal story as a cancer survivor…hope to hear more Jack’s Mannequin music in the movie.
