01.23.2010 - Thanks once again to Warner Bros Philippines for the exclusive press media invite for the red carpet premier of The Blind Side. The special screening was shown on January 22, 2010 (Friday) at Gateway cineplex 10, Cinema 3.

The Blind Side is a 2009 American drama–sports film written and directed by John Lee Hancock, and based on the 2006 book The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game by Michael Lewis. The storyline features Michael Oher, an offensive lineman who plays for the Baltimore Ravens of the NFL...

The film follows Oher from his impoverished upbringing, through his years at Wingate Christian School (a fictional representation of Briarcrest Christian School), his adoption by Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, and on to his position as one of the most highly coveted prospects in college football.

The Great Britain release date for the film has been announced to be March 12, 2010. For her performance, Sandra Bullock won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama.

It will be shown in Philippines on January 27, 2010.

About The Movie

The film stars Quinton Aaron as Michael Oher, Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne Tuohy, Tim McGraw as Sean Tuohy, Oher's adoptive parents, and Kathy Bates as Miss Sue, Oher's tutor. The movie also features appearances by several current and former NCAA coaches, including SEC coaches Houston Nutt and Ed Orgeron (Oher's coaches in college, though Nutt represented Arkansas at the time and therefore does so in the film) and Nick Saban (who was at LSU at the time and represents them in the film), former coaches Lou Holtz, Tommy Tuberville, Phillip Fulmer, as well as recruiting analyst Tom Lemming.


Not to give out the details the movie. It tells the real life of Michael Oher as a teeneager, and how he was brought up as an adult by hid adoptive mother Leigh Anne Tuohy. As both face challenges in Michael's presence in the Tuohys' lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own.

The Verdict

The movie has a heart warming nature seeing how Michael Oher went through and changed the Tuohy Family inside out. A stellar performance by Sandra Bullock earning her a Golden Globe. Its been a while since I saw her previous movies. The Blind side is definitely worth seeing in the big screen. Just as previous true to life stories of athletes made for film. But this one has a little kick to it that deserves a four out of five score in the end zone.
