Movies - Precious and The Blind Side

What's up with y'all?

I have watched those movies and as I was doing so, my eyes misted over due to the breathtaking and extraordinary true stories. Both of them are great movies that came out in late 2009. If y'all have spare time, don't go anywhere but to the movie theater. I'm sure, if they don't change your thoughts and about life, it will, at the very least, help you see the other side of it.

"Precious" is a girl born and raised in Harlem, uptown Manhattan, a low-income area where everything takes place from church choirs to drug dealing, raping and murdering. She goes through things we can barely imagine it happens in families. It shows another side of America that TV programs do not very often broadcast. Numerous things happen on the movie and y'all are invited to watch it and leave a comment here so we can discuss it.

"The Blind Side" is the true story of a 17-year-old African American boy from Memphies, TN whose mother is a crackhead who gets evicted every time because she does not have money to pay off the bills. He got into this all-white school and was always looked down upon until he was adopted by a white family that looked after him and helped change his destiny to better or to worse. Watch it and let us know what you think about it.
