This week's reviewed movie is:
The Blind Side




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber


This feel-good true story about a white family that takes in a homeless African-American boy and nurtures him through school and also finds he's a natural football player.

The filmmakers touch on the racial undertones without ever rocking the boat.

This 6'5" 350 pound young kid by the name of Michael Oher now plays offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens.

If you're looking for another uplifting good sports story, you really can't go wrong.

You might say The Blind Side is a movie about football, but it isn't.

Or that it's a movie about winning, but it isn't that either.

It's a movie about what happens when a wealthy family can see injustice and opens up their home and hearts to another.

It's a movie about how strong the power of love really is -- how caring for another can change a life forever.

Based on a true story, this film about football, winning, and how watching out for "the blind side" can make all the difference in the world.

Actress Sandra Bullock gives one of her best performances in the movie The Blind Side.

It's the inspiring real-life story of a homeless kid in Memphis, Tennessee who was discarded by his crack-addicted mother and was taken in by a wealthy Memphis couple earlier in this decade.

It's a touching film about life, football, and family and also a tale that seems almost too good to be true.
