Fifty Shades….

Oh ya, I’m going there and I have A LOT to say! hehe!
So I forced myself to get out of the house last Friday like a normal human being despite my 2 week migraine. Where did I go? The movies of course!! I went to see Fifty Shades of Grey, mostly because I wanted to be “in the know” not because I loved the books (I didn’t). SO I wanted to hate it, I really did but….. I LOVED it! Now, was this a cinematic masterpiece? No way but you know what your getting into. Was Twilight full of movie magic? No!
I thought the actors were great….. Dakota aka Anna was perfect at being shy and awkward. Just like she should have been when being introduced to awkward things. Jamie aka Christian was aloof, handsome and dominate just like he should of been. Was their chemistry off the charts? No, but I enjoyed it… it worked.
Now I want to talk about the good stuff… The stuff that people are “protesting” over, the stuff that people are soooo worked up about and I have to tell ya….. What are you talking about? I have seen more nudity in a episode of Game of Thrones and in the entire movie I think there may have only been like 5 cuss words. Literally. Are there a lot of boobs? Ya, but no one shows all their goods….. in fact Christian wears jeans 99% of the time. The sex scenes are spliced together in a montage sort of way that is hot but in no way NC-17. Is it weird watching someone get spanked? Ya…. but I could list a ton of recent R rated movies that were more R rated than this.  SO I am not sure what everyone is so worked up over? All of you protestors have you ever watched a R rated movie before? If you have then I’m sorry you have nothing to say. People like to have something to complain about… so please put down your picket signs (I’m talking to you Oklahoma) and find something better to do. Geez.

This movie was a hot, cheesy and fun afternoon matinee!

    haha! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂 I haven't read the books and I have no intention of seeing the movie. Not that I'm holding a placard or anything, I just have so many other books I would rather read/movies I'd rather watch!!

    OMG thank you! I feel the exact same way. My only complaint with the movie was how awkward it was to hear them say actual lines from the book and I felt it showed a little too much "hair down there" if you know what I'm saying. Other than that, I've seen more sex and nudity on an episode of Girls on HBO!

    Thanks for the review. I did hear Jamie say in an interview once, that he drew the line on some things in the script. He said something like, "leave things to the imagination". I heard that some southern states had the highest pre-ticket sales, (MS, AL, KY, etc).
