Saw it – LOVED it! Fantastic movie. I've read a few reviews so far this morning and they weren't glowing but I didn't expect that. I'm a sucker for true stories and cheering on the underdog – this one didn't fail to bring it's point home. Or to tug at consciousness and a few heartstrings. The fear of it being a major tearjerker was dispelled with Sandra Bullocks strong, self confident character and her ability to be a fine and truly dedicated actress. Not a huge Tim McGraw fan but he did a great job and I actually forgot who he was until about halfway through the movie. Maybe that means he's a good actor too. I saw him in Saturday Night Lights and though I loved that movie I just don't get the draw to him. Maybe it's because I can't stand his wife Faith Hill.
The Blind Side will be on my "buy" list when it's out on DVD. I know that New Moon is the blockbuster of the weekend here, but The Blind Side was sooooooooooo worth fighting New Moon crowds for.
