Just saw it and it's right in my top 3 for greatest movie ever! It's just bone chilling to see what that family did for him.

I've heard it from several people. I'm sure I'll enjoy the movie a lot, but best ever for me? Still TBD...

I thought it was ok. It didn't blow me away, but the story was good. It seemed really forced at times, like the actual play on the field was just bad. And Under Armour sponsored the movie. I think I figured that out in the first 5 minutes of the movie.

I just got done watching The Express....also a great movie.

Slightly OT, but I totally agree. That movie is sort of chilling, just to think of how good Ernie Davis could have been had he not been struck down by lukemia.


Exactly, it was really sad, idk it just hit me more than any other sports movie has.

I've read the book and seen the movie.... I thought the movie was ok, but the book is WAY better. IThe book goes more into the whole "recruiting" incident and also does a lot better job going into how Tom Lemmings thought Oher was one of the best lineman he has ever seen

read the book the movie leaves out a lot


Seconded. There's is just a ton more stuff in the book. The evolution of the left tackle was pretty cool to read and there is a lot more actual football stuff in the book too.

I'm gonna do the cliche "book was better than the movie comment" but whatever, sue me

I haven't seen the movie yet and probably won't because I read the book by Michael Lewis soon after it was released in 2006. Lewis is an extremely talented writer and does an awesome job of weaving Oher's story in with how football has evolved (much like he did with Moneyball). I'm glad the film is allowing more people to hear about Oher's story, but if you like football at all you will love this book.

Also, anyone that has read the book and seen the movie? How did you like it?
