I always thought the hardest thing to do in life is acting? Being in front of cameras and recorded is something some will avoid it for the rest of their life. I remember back then, I was assigned as one of a character in a drama.

I won’t say I enjoy that much in acting, some of my moves were too weird and the written script also too cheesy, but same as many people, I love to see movies. If I were asked today, what movie that still clinging in my head, I would say “Blind Side”.

I have watched a lot of movies and genre in my life, but this movie always hanging in my head. Not because I experience what the movie character’s life is, but there are quite few moments, that I thought It’s unforgettable.

Mike is a sad poor boy with great strength. It’s unbelievable how things turn out to be so well, when a family adopt him. Michael Oher in real life is the American football offensive tackle. He played college football for the University of Mississippi, and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the 2009 NFL.

In the end of the movie, looking at the real Oher, I am a little bit surprise since I don’t think any resemblance between how he behave and his character in the movie. Mike, in the movie, is strong and portrayed genuinely kind and doesn’t have strong presence as Oher in real life.

Other things I love about the movies are as follows :

  • Sandra Bullock perfectly play the Mom. How many of us asking for a stranger to come and stay in our house? That’s practically impossible to do that kind of act these days.
  • Mike was asked to take a family photo together for Christmas or we forget the moment when Leigh Ann mocked by her friends because of Mike when they are out for lunch together.
  • The moments when Mike prove himself worthy in football matches and become attention of so many clubs that wants to take him in.
  • The support of the whole family members is always gave me a chill. No family member asked “Why you took Mike in, Mom, Dad?”

This is the first motivational movie I ever watch, so that’s why I will never forget all those moments, when my heart was touched by those act of kindness.

I appreciate more of this kind of movie rather than some stupid movies like Jackass! Jackass is really on another insane level. With a budget of $5 million, this movie can get revenue of $79,5 million, that’s just insane. Thank Goodness, the rating is 6.6/10.0. As I can say, Jackass movie is not acting, it’s just craziness goes live! {click to tweet}

I would appreciate your opinion about this matter, so that we can learn from each other better to live this life abundantly!
