a must see

last night i went to Telus Tuesday at Colossus (if you don't know what that is you must live in a hole) with 4 awesome ladies. we decided to see Blindside. I was pretty excited cause it looked really good in the previews. one of those movies that seemed clean and yet still funny, heartwarming and believable. i went in with VERY high expectations. OH..........MY..........GOSH!! phenomenal! seriously one of the best movies i have ever seen. i like all kinds of movies, i own all kinds of movies but the classics are usually the ones i LOVE. for example i love little women, pride and prejudice.....stuff like that. there are very few movies that aren't based on books that i LOVE. don't get me wrong. i really enjoy action movies and i am really into war movies and murder mysteries, but there is something captivating about dramas. they cause you to have strong feelings, often many different feelings. Blindside grabbed me. i was right there with them, or so it felt. i felt sick when Big Mike spoke of his past and the hardships in this life. i teared up when he showed appreciation to the family who were caring for him. i felt proud of him for his accomplishments and amazed by the family's kindness and generosity. it's a movie that challenged me to be a better person in many areas. at the end it showed pictures of the real people, since it's based on a true story. oh man, i can not do this movie justice. it was just SO great! all 5 of us girls loved it. i will for sure see it again and i will probably buy it when it comes out. it's a must see!
