It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With
November 29, 2012 – 18:32 | No Comment

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

Movie Review: The Blind Side

Submitted by on July 6, 2011 – 00:11No Comment

The Blind Side. I only watched because I enjoy watching Sandra Bullock on the big screen; because she is charming and full of energy in her characters; because she owns each character she plays. And she didn’t disappoint in the movie – The Blind Side. The only problem I had is the storyline: Do people really just pick someone random off the streets and adopt them into the family just because they didn’t have one? Wouldn’t there be many many people to adopt then? Not to mention, going to extra length to build the future of that adopted child?

I can’t help wondering if the other biological children ever get upset because the attention is not on them anymore; do they ever feel neglected? I mean, they didn’t even get a car and yet this stranger who came into their home got a brand new one on the driveway (and mind you, not a cheap one too). And this stranger almost got one of her son killed because of his reckless driving? What if the new son you adopted almost killed your son? Wouldn’t you think twice about adopting?

I question many mini plots of the movie. From how impossible it is to rise up your CPA of 0.2 to 2.52 on such a short period of time, to how too seamlessly the biological children and husband accepted someone new into their family. But one thing I didn’t question: The Blind Side is a good movie because it dabbles on your emotions and makes you all warm-squashy inside. It is indeed a good family show and one that everyone will be reminded of how great a mother can be when it comes to matters concerning her child.
