The Blind Side

I didn’t go into The Blind Side with any high expectations. It wasn’t the reviews, at least it wasn’t the reviews alone. It just did not look like my type of film. But I thought it would be a mildly entertaining, but unrewarding film. Sandra Bullock has fallen out of my esteem for quite some time. Still, with all the laurels being given to it and with all the buzz around Bullock. I did. To be honest, I’m sorry I did. Just thinking about the film leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth, which means I can’t review it properly. And I saw it three days ago. I’ll just say for now, if Sandra is nominated it will be my least favourite of the 50 Best Actress nominees this decade. Sure, she’s the best in the movie – but I just don’t find the movie to be very good. At. All.

hmmm... I actually didn't dislike it that much even if it's a big cliche. At least I wasn't annoyed... i guess i saw it as a regular tv movie (which it is) and it was easy to watch after a long day of work :)

meanwhile, I just finished the (in)famous Cousin, cousine (1975-76), which probably gave one of the most unexpected Best Actress nominations ever. :) boy, if only stuff like that could happen today.
it's on My latest oscar film

Sucks that Sandra will take a spot from somebody much more deserving!
