FIFTY SHADES OF GREY – So what did you think?

1 min read


It’s pretty clear who the winner at this weekend’s box office was, as Fifty Shades of Grey gagged and whipped all their competition on the way to a gigantic opening weekend. With EL James’ Twilight fan-fiction turned novel trilogy being as popular as it is, that kind of runaway success was always likely for a movie adaptation. But the big question is, is the movie actually any good? Critical consensus at this point is a resounding “Nope”. Most proclaim the movie to be better than the book, but then quickly point out that the book was pretty crappy to begin with so that proves nothing.

But critics and the general public often don’t see eye to eye on these things. So in light of the fact that due to an absolutely crazy schedule and the fact that I couldn’t get anybody to go with me to see it and I was not going to be that 34-year old bear of a man who goes to watch Fifty Shades of Grey by myself and thus will only be able to put up a review next week for the earliest, I thought we could hear from you guys. So if you watched the hotly anticipated flick this weekend past, please tell us what you thought of it. Super sexy and erotic, or were you yelling the safeword to make it stop barely 15 minutes into the movie?

Oh and just so that we have a fair reflection of the opinions, please mention whether or not you’ve read the books before seeing the movie.

    I haven’t read the books, but I found the movie to be absolutely incredible. Best movie I have watched in ages… wait, you’re not talking about The Kingsman? I couldn’t care less about this 50 Shades crap. Why are we even discussing it?
    On a side note, when I was walking in to watch the absolutely incredible Kingsman movie, 50 Shades had just ended, and the people were walking out of there, they were all complaining loudly about how bad it was using words like Disgusting and Revolting. No one seemed to enjoy it.

    Dry heave. Movie and books that are basically soft core rape don’t attract me in any way mean or form.

        Nope. I have heard enough from family and friends to know it is not for me. I tried reading a few paras and put it down because it is so poorly written.

          LOL! So you read a few “paras”. Sounds like 50 Shades.

    I don’t think that watching someones rape fantasy based on Twilight would be a productive use of my time. I have not read the books but I did once mistakenly watch 20 minutes of one of the twilight movies.

        No one sparkled no one did anything. It became a game I wanted to see if I could last until something happened, nothing did. Insert “that’s what she said here”

      Exactly what you said.
