So I watched The Blind Side last night (and enjoyed it!) and when got on the computer this morning, I looked it up to see how others enjoyed it. I was shocked to see that the critics gave it a C. When I clicked over the the public ratings, they were mostly A's. What I didn't expect were all the digs towards the critics. I'll list a few for you, and we'll see if you agree or disagree with some poster's opinions.
1 - It seems some critics have difficulty putting their ideological blinders aside. This is a true story about a white, conservative christian family helping a young black man. Apparently, there are some people on the left, that are so locked into their stereotype views of conservatives and their anti-christian bigotry, that they resent a movie that shows their enemies in a positive way. And this emotional resentment keeps them from judging the movie objectively.

I don't care what critics thought of the movie, I loved it, I cried when he said that about his bed, ahhh. This movie did good in the theaters and she won the Oscar, so LIBERAL Hollywood did not discriminate because it was about conservatives!
