I saw The Blind Side today, with one of my service users. I'd definitely recommend it! I thought it was brilliant.

I loved it too. I have seen it twice and I plan to buy the DVD at some point.

Absolutely loved it! Sandra Bullock was fantastic.

I thought it was great, too - and very family-friendly.

Can you believe that was Tim McGraw playing the Dad? He was freaking unrecognizable!

I know! I kept thinking: where is Tim M? I finally recognized him!

While Hubby thought the movie was very slow, (I had to remind him that it wasn't an action movie ) I appreciated the spotlight it put on the acting. Great movie in that regard.

I also barely recognized Tim McGraw! I thought he did a top notch job in his role. As for Phil Collins' daughter, Lily, I got a big kick out of her character's name being "Collins"!!

I also loved The Blind Side and thought Sandra Bullock was very well deserving of her Oscar. Now, I've still got to see Crazy Heart with Jeff Bridges - need to put that on my to-do list.

Me too Dreamer. The other night I chose The Lovely Bones over Crazy Heart. I'm sort of sorry I did. I read TLB years ago when it was on Oprah's Book Club and remembered liking the book. I would have to re-read it, but I didn't care for the surreal scenes in the movie depicting the lead character in her in-between state. I thought the book did a better job of that.
