So...because it received accolades negatively impacts it's rating? Not exactly judging a film free of external influence.

Not what I said at all. It was clearly a serious drama made with the intention of being nominated for awards, yet it was abhorrent. These kinds of films are obviously on a higher plane than every other [they should be], and should be judged way more harshly than a 'Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus' kind of film for many reasons which I think you already know and I don't care to explain.

You are still judging it based on external factors. You said as much; "The intention of being nominated for awards", i.e. external factors have influenced your opinion. It was critically-lauded, and you're dropping it down a few points because you disagree.

Like I said, I try to be as objective as possible.

Totally agree, it was a total letdown in my opinion. I don't know why, but the way they portrayed Michael Oher's story just leaves me frustrated..

Obviously I am in the minority here, judging individual works free of external influence in an objective manner. I will just concede. You are all right. The Blind Side is one of the worst movies of all-time. Just as bad as Transmorphers.

Sounds like one of those "no or no" deals.

I'll tell you what, you can make a DeadpoolJR account and i'll take the 10 dollars.

I watched Wall Street for the second time and it made a much bigger impression on me than the first time. The first time I watched it was in high school in a business class but this time I had it up on the big screen with surround sound. Gordon Gekko is a ****ing great character.

on the blind side...



this guy sean tuohy took in oher, he is the grizzlies' tv color guy for fox sports.

he obviously hated the movie. he had to miss games to do press, attend the premiere, and every time he got back, pete pranica (the play by play) would always rib him about it, and it was all he could do to keep from going on a rant.

and the movie was AWFUL. i think it is indeed deserving a 1/10. i disagree with the notion that you can't compare a big budget flick with decent actors and great production values to crap like 2 a.m. showtime movies. it's not an 'all-things equal' situation; you have to factor in the huge gap in resources/money and the different creative goals of the respective projects (not here to argue, i understand the other viewpoint as well).
