Let’s Go Through Her Notable Performances
BIRD BOX (2018)
In her role as a mother who must protect her kids from a menacing, invisible force that has driven the majority of people to commit suicide, Bullock has played a mother. She must always stay oblivious, otherwise, she would have seen a moment that would undoubtedly be her last.
Not to mention the incredible 45 million viewers it attracted in its first week of release, Bird Box is a suspenseful thriller that is only made better by Bullock’s performance.
THE PROPOSAL (2009)
Bullock plays a cunning Canadian publisher who, in The Proposal, offers her assistant (Ryan Reynolds) a promotion that has been long overdue in exchange for marrying her so that she can keep her US citizenship. Bullock is facing deportation. Everyone should watch this delightful box office smash because of the connection between Bullock and Reynolds (and, of course, Betty White as Reynolds’ grandma).
MISS CONGENIALITY (2000)
F.B.I. agent Gracie Hart (Bullock) is the kind of woman who ignores makeup, favors a pantsuit over a dress, and doesn’t take crap from her male coworkers. That is until she learns that the Miss USA contest is the upcoming target for terrorists, necessitating her reluctantly adopting a beauty queen appearance and blending in with other pageant contenders in order to avert the attack.
Ryan Stone, a scientist, and Matt Kowalski, a veteran astronaut, are abandoned in space with nothing but the oxygen tanks on their backs after their shuttle is destroyed in an accident. Before it’s too late, they must get together to devise a plan of action for surviving and going back home. In addition to Bullock’s Oscar-nominated high-tension performance, Gravity is an amazing technological achievement.
In the film Speed, the insane-but-not-dumb Dennis Hopper plants a bomb on a bus that will go off if the vehicle, which is crammed with passengers, does not go faster than 50 mph. While he considers how to diffuse the issue, young Annie Porter (Bullock), played by Keanu Reeves, is hired to operate the bus by detective Jack Traven, a young but bright detective.
