“The Blindside” will blindside you emotionally

For the guys I’ll say it’s just a movie about football so go enjoy some good hitting. It does also star Sandra Bullock — one of my favorites — who looks positively scrumptious as a blonde and turns in what may be the best performance of her career.

Now then, for the gals and those guys willing to get in touch with their “feminine” side, go see it for a wonderful story that will show you all sides of life.  And it will rip your guts right out from many different directions.

I think it may be the best movie I’ve seen in years. Many years.  It includes apparent elitist rich white folks, a catty lunch group of women, a view of the worst of the ghetto and some rednecks you’d love to strangle.  If you were to plot the emotional ride it would be a sawtooth wave as opposed to a nice smooth sine wave!  You will see the best of humanity juxtaposed with the worst of what homo sapiens do to one another.

Be sure to see it with someone you love. I did.
