Good Essays
Kevin Carr’s review is the most organized of these two reviews. If readers are looking for the bad parts of the movie then they can go straight to the “What I didn’t like” section and read Carr’s negative thoughts.This review does a good job of covering all the main points. Instead of having to search the whole two page review just to see what is bad about the movie. It doesn’t drag things out and is straight to the point. When I am looking for a quick review, these are the ones I go to for opinions.

“The Blind Side” Rev of The Blind Side, John Lee Hancock. CinemaBlend. Cinema Blend LLC. 27 Feb. 2010. Web. 1 Apr. 2016 http://www.cinemablend.com/reviews/The-Blind-Side-4321.html Perri Nemiroff’s review is interesting to read. He words it to where the reader stays focused and builds the movie up with things like, “embrace The Blind Side and you’ll be in for a feel-good time.” He then gives a summary of the movie and tells you that even though you may not be a football fan, you will still love it. The few things he does not enjoy, he backs it up with reasoning. At the end, he dares his readers to watch it until the end to see the actual family that went through all of these actions.

Perri persuades his readers to watch The Blind Side by throwing the problems at the readers to make them become curious of how they will be fixed. A rich mother with two young kids takes in a homeless black male. Perri is trying to make his readers question what conflict will come up because of this. He also puts that this is a true story. That alone makes me want to watch it just knowing that what I am about to watch actually

    With the promotional poster depicting a picture of a woman holding the hand of an oversized football player leading him onto the field, the movie “The Blind Side” made skeptics of moviegoers. Challenged by most energy-packed movies that hit the screens in 2009, the movie at hind sight did not do much visual stimulation. However, being a movie that faithfully represents the real life experience of famed football star Michael Oher, it did not fail to raise a lot of eyebrows from both movie fans and…

    I suspected, after reading Megan Basham's review (below), that the filmThe Blind Side would be worth seeing. So my wife and I went this weekend, and we were truly blindsided by a film abundantly rich in its humanity and unabashedly Christian in its underpinnings -- a modern day object lesson in Luke 10:25-37 and Matthew 25:31-47. Not only that, it's a true story. You can read the synopsis of the plot below. What that won't tell you is that Sandra Bullock (commanding and authentic…
