A Random Blog of Everything I like
This is what I like to call my ‘late’ post, why is it late? Because I’ve seen these two movies months ago but I was so busy and preoccupied so I have no time to write it down. But since those are Sandra Bullock’s movies, I still remember it clearly and promise my self that I will write it down one day…and today is the day 🙂
180 degree Sandy means that these 2 movies I’m going to review show 2 characters that are so different, like hell and heaven or earth and sky.
All About Steve
All About Steve is really a not-your-typical romantic comedy. Sandra plays as Mary Horowitz, a brilliant crossword-puzzle designer. She is a talker – a nonstop talker, but she doesn’t talk empty words that have no meaning because she is really smart.
Her parents set her up with a man named Steve, a CNN Cameraman. Mary falls in love instantly…but she was too weird for Steve. Lucky for Steve, he has to leave for job in another state. He tells her – just to be polite – that he hopes she can be there with him too. She takes it seriously and takes off to chase her love.
She finds him, but he tries to get away from her. Steve co-worker, the reporter, tells her things about Steve – wrong things about Steve – and it makes her more eager to chase him around. Steve gets really scare of her and sometimes imagine her as a psycho.
On her chase, she meets a lot of people that are really nice to her. 2 of those people join her chase for Steve. She becomes the center of attention when she falls into a hole.
This movie does not end romantically, but I kinda like this sort of ending…you search for the guy you love and stumble upon a group of great friends…that’s not a bad ending at all, even in real life. I really like her last words ‘We have a natural compulsion to fill empty spaces. On the journey of life just find someone as normal as you if not a whole bunch’
I like the message in this movie…that we don’t have to change who we are just to get someone else’s attention…just be who you are.
In this movie, sandy is a bit weird…smart but weird. I feel a bit annoyed by her character. Sandy as Mary is really talk-active, and a bit childish.
The Blind Side
The story is about Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home. Leigh Anne feels sorry for the boy and takes him home. At first, there isn’t much interaction between Michael and the rest of Tuohy Family.
Tuohy, then decide, to give Michael a room and become their legal guardian. Michael and the Tuohy slowly become a family. The Tuohy even encourage Mike to be a football player.
Mike has a very innocent heart, his presence in the Tuohy changes that family into a better and warmer family.
I really like this movie, it looks like a make believe movie, I mean how could someone rich be that nice? Then again, this is based on true story…so it isn’t make-believe after all. Sandy plays brilliantly in this movie. She truly portrays a woman who has high determination and always tries to hide her vulnerable emotion.
Interesting fact: Sandra Bullock won Razzie Award for Worst Actress in All about Steve and won Academy Award for Best Actress in The Blind Side. 180 degree Sandy indeed!!
