Five streaming movies starring Sandra Bullock
- The Blind Side
- Very strong and Incredibly Close
- Crime bodies
Bullock’s first major success with the public comes thanks to an absolutely brilliant action thriller. Adrenaline, find history, fast pace and a Keanu Reeves polished. More Speed also contains a Dennis Hopper in a psychopathic villain version in great form. The best of 90s action, which also won two technical Oscars. The former cinematographer directs great Jan de Bont, who then forgets everything by packing a horrible sequel always with Bullock and Willem Dafoe. From riches to rags…Available on Rakuten TV, KILOS, Google Play, Apple iTunes, Amazon Prime Videos, Disney+.
The Blind Side (2009)
Suddenly the Oscar, the consecration as a real actress, and of course the applause of the public who pays off with other stratospheric receipts. Direct from that John Lee Hancock who over the years will prove to be a remarkable “craftsman” with a beating heart – don’t miss his Highwaymen with Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson – The Blind Side moves, inspires, develops with care and intelligence. Not much to say about a product that achieves everything it set out to do, maybe even something more. Indeed, on balance much more…Available on Rakuten TV, CHILI, Google Play, Netflix, TIM Vision, NOW.
Very Loud, Incredibly Close (2012)
A supporting role but interpreted with depth and great psychological adherence to the character. Next to her, far and lost, a painful Tom Hanks. Although to be honest the throbbing heart of Very strong and Incredibly Close it’s a Max von Sydow bow, who takes the Oscar nomination for supporting role and also deserved the statuette. At times dazzling melodrama directed by the specialist Stephen Daldry. Film that in Italy has been unjustly underestimated. It reaches to the heart with sincerity. Adapted from Jonathan Safran Foer. Available on Rakuten TV, CHILI, Google Play, Apple Itunes, TIMVision, Amazon Prime Video.
This is in our opinion the magnificent science fiction film that made us realize how Sandra Bullock is a truly talented actress. Because being able to raise the depth of the character within a staging of this magnitude really means knowing how to act. And very well. Gravity also has a George Clooney magnificent shoulder and a Alfonso Cuaron which he directs as a vision mage with a soul. A deluge of Oscars, a nomination for Bullock that is really worth gold. Available on Rakuten TV, CHILI, Google Play, Infinity+Apple iTunes, Amazon Prime Video.
When you have comedy in your veins, you know how to make it into great entertainment cinema. Bullock partners with Melissa McCarthy for an irresistible duo of action and laughter, which builds a sui generis detective story that is impossible to forget. Crime bodies it is intelligent genre cinema, full of gimmicks, with a frenetic editing and a taste for hyperkinetic storytelling to be applauded. We burst out laughing, confirming the talent above all of the two protagonists. Our little big “guilty pleasure”. Available on CHILI, Apple Itunes, NOW.
Happy birthday Sandra Bullock! Here are some of her streaming hits
