A Review of the Road Movie Genre Blind Side
I recently watched the Road Movie Genre The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock. It was a chick flick that would benefit everyone. The short answer is that I would give it 4 1/2 stars. If you want to know why then keep reading.
The movie had lots of opportunities to become very tense and dramatic and blissfully they didn’t take it in those awful directions. The base premise of the grim movie genre is bad enough because it highlights the dreadful conditions of many inner city kids and their complete lack of education and opportunity. They come from such horrible conditions and are lucky to make it out alive.
Big Mike Story
For “Big Mike” the story started off poorly as he’s shuffled from one foster home to another and then is mercifully picked up by the Tuehy family and it blossoms into a true family relationship.
After watching the Road Movie Genre I felt a bit low. Low because I would love to help others the way the Tuehy’s helped Mike, yet I have so many issues of distrust and misgivings, and just sheer laziness. I’m hoping movies like this one will motivate me to do more for those who have less.
I also decided from the first second she came on camera that I love Sandra Bullocks character. She’s tough, go-getting and works hard for her family. She may seem like a clueless southern belle, but she’s far from it. I want to be her. She has money, taste, class and generosity. Her outlook on life is positive and she works to change the world one person at a time. I would love to hang out with her for an hour or a year.
I recommend that everyone see this Road Movie Genre to gain perspective on what life is like for the less advantaged. It will hopefully teach a lot of us to stop taking so much for granted to give more to others.
