Five streaming movies starring Sandra Bullock
- The Blind Side
- Very strong and Incredibly Close
- Criminal bodies
Bullock’s first major public success comes thanks to an absolutely brilliant action thriller. Adrenaline, gimmicks of history, fast pace and a Keanu Reeves polished. More Speed also contains a Dennis Hopper in version psychopathic villain in great dusting. The best of 90s action, which also won two technical Oscars. The former director of photography is a great director Jan de Bont, who then forgets everything by making a horrible sequel again with Bullock and Willem Dafoe. From the stars to the rags… Available on Rakuten TV, KILOS, Google Play, Apple Itunes, Amazon Prime Video, Disney +.
The Blind Side (2009)
Suddenly the Oscar, the consecration as a true actress, and obviously the applause of the public who repays with other stratospheric receipts. Directed by 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 it moves, inspires, develops with care and intelligence. Little to say about a product that achieves everything it intended, perhaps even a little more. Indeed, on balance much more … Available on Rakuten TV, CHILI, Google Play, Netflix, TIMVision, NOW.
Very Loud, Incredibly Close (2012)
A supporting role but played with depth and great psychological adhesion to the character. Beside 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 by bow, who gets an Oscar nomination as a supporting character and also deserved the statuette. Sometimes dazzling melodrama directed by the specialist Stephen Daldry. Film that in Italy has been unfairly underestimated. It reaches 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 much Sandra Bullock is a truly talented actress. Because being able to raise the depth of the character in 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 who directs like a vision wizard with a soul. A slew of Oscars, a Bullock nomination that is truly gold. Available on Rakuten TV, CHILI, Google Play, Infinity +Apple Itunes, Amazon Prime Video.
Bodies of crime (2013)
When you have comedy in your veins, you know how to turn it into great entertainment cinema. Bullock teams up with Melissa McCarthy for an irresistible duo of action and laughter, which builds a sui generis detective story impossible to forget. Criminal bodies it is cinema of an intelligent genre, full of gimmicks, with a frenetic editing and a taste for hyperkinetic narration to applause. We burst out laughing, confirming the talent above all of the two protagonists. One of our great little “guilty pleasure”. Available on CHILI, Apple Itunes, NOW.
