fifty shades of nothing


50 - poster - pinterest comHow can a movie be so bad ????  …. after all the hyper around the release on Valentine’s Day – I just had to see it. Sorry for my use of language, but what a load of “crap”.

Gloria Leonard onces said – “The difference between pornography and erotica is lighting.” Not even the lighting engineer could save this film.

Even the books was nothing – at least not in my ears, because I have suffered through them from my mobile.

I guess that most readers of the books are women, because I have hard to believe that men can find them slightly interesting. Sorry girls.  Fifty-Shades- books - pinger pl

I’m all for a bit a erotic literature and movies, but this so weak and poor. Some have called the movie stylish and sexy, but what about substance??? With that “red room of pain” – some steam should been created, but … nothing.

My grandma always said when something was tasteless on her plate – it’s like sticking the tongue outside the window. This is my verdict of both books and film.

Obviously there is a big market for it, just wonder why?????!!!!! Lucky for E.L. James.  50 - popcornreel com

When the books was released everybody was raving about them, but they never talked to me. I help my friend Anna-Liisa to download books, because of her sight problem she have free books, so I thought I will download the “shades” to my mobile.

I must say that the picture I had of Mr Grey – was very close to Jamie Dornan in part as Christian Grey. When listen to the books, I never saw Christian as a man-man.
I would love to see Matt Bomer from “White Collar” in roll.

I know that Matt was consider for the part – I’m sure he are very happy that he didn’t get it.

I love Jamie Dornan as Paul Spector in BBC’s TV-series “The Fall” – about a serial killer in Belfast. I really feel sorry for Jamie that he accepted the roll as Christian Grey, not good for anyone CV. Jamie, what was you thinking.

I can only say that boredom set in early, glad I had a big bucket with popcorn and some wingums.

Dakota Johnson shows some breast – she is very understated it was like she wasn’t even there at all. Sam-Taylor-Johnson- uk

Director is Sam Taylor-Johnson, born in London in 1967, with Nowhere Boy (2009) in her back pocket.

“When Anastasia Steele, a literature student, goes to interview the wealthy Christian Grey as a favor to her roommate Kate Kavanagh, she encounters a beautiful, brilliant and intimidating man. The innocent and naive Ana starts to realize she wants him. Despite his enigmatic reserve and advice, she finds herself desperate to get close to him. Not able to resist Ana’s beauty and independent spirit, Christian Grey admits he wants her too, but on his own terms. Ana hesitates as she discovers the singular tastes of Christian Grey – despite the embellishments of success, his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, and his loving family, Grey is consumed by the need to control everything.

Somebody has said about the movie – “this movie raped my intelligence”. I know the feeling.

I’m a fan of the movie “Nine 1/2 weeks” with  Mickey Rourke & Kim Basinger, that has a very similar story line; about strengthening the sexual boundaries.

The real and only 3 good things about this movie was that it had an end … it is filmed in Seattle and the soundtrack is fantastic with artist like Rolling Stone, Annie Lennox, Beyoncé, Frank Sinatra, Awolnation, Sia, The Weekend  and  Laura Welsh. I really like the new version Beyoncé does of “Crazy in Love”and Annie’s version of “I Put a Spell on You”.  Danny Elfman - imdb com

So I have invested in some of the tracks with Itune. Danny Elfman is responsible for the soundtrack – he has also composted the track “Did That Hurt” – that is a fantastic piece of music. Danny is the man behind the music to The Simpsons.

 “Every time you move tomorrow,
I want you to be reminded that I’ve been here.
Only me.
You are mine.”
Christian Grey

  1. A real shame really, given the sales of the books one would think the movie would do well, But instead it ended sinking in the ocean like a boat without a sail with nothing to stand on. Ah, What were they thinking lol

    • Andy, I can’t understand how the books has become such best sellers – they are soulless … and boring. For one of the first times I agree with all critics on this one. It deserve it – feel so sorry for Jamie, because he are a really good actor. Sorry I couldn’t claim refund on my ticket. What a waste of Sunday evening and money.

  2. I agree with you about the books. I deliberately decided not to read them as everyone was raving about them but gave in recently in view of the forthcoming film. I wish I hadn’t bothered. There were only a couple of scenes I found erotic but mainly I was bored and thought “what, again?”. Needless to say I won’t be going to watch the film – I’d rather read a Mills and Boon (english love/erotic naff stories kind of book)!!

  3. Haven’t seen it yet, wanted to. I liked the books, but I wasn’t IN LOVE with the books. Probably wait until this one is out of theaters to see it.

  4. Well said! I haven’t read the books, and have absolutely NO intention of doing so, and certainly wouldn’t see the film either….. Lightweight nonsense

    • Suzanne, I really suffered through the books – but I thought I will give the movie a chance … because I like Jamie as an actor very much. But .. it had an end. *smile

  5. Interesting review Viv. When the books came out they blew up the bookasphere. That can show you sex sells. I think that was the premise of the fame of this series. Buzz was all around which caused a huge rise in book sales, I think more out of curiosity than a literary great. I too got caught in the curiosity. I read the first book and said “Oh?, and so?” And thought something was wrong with my judgement against everyone else’s so I read the next one and the next one to see if it got any more exciting. I too was disappointed and certainly had no intentions of going to the movie. We all know the movie can ruin even some of the best books out there so I’m not surprised at your reaction. 🙂

    • Debbie, everybody around me was talking about the books and that I had to read them. But it click for me with them. And I think 95% all the book sales was done by women – now when I have listen to the books, I don’t have a clue why the books sold that well. Are our sexlives so dull??? I don’t have anything against reading aboout sex, but there has to be some stubstance to it. And for a woman like Anna … to totally give up “her own” for a man, nothing we should encourage women to do, espcially not young women. Sex is personal, but it is a giving and taking in both ways.

    • Girl, don’t you know who Stieg Larssson is or were – he died before his books … became world best seller.
      Here is my post about him, Enjoy!!! If you haven’t read the books .. do it – and if you want to watch the movies, watche the Swedish verisons. All 3 books has been made into films by Swedish directors. Brilliant movies and outstanding acting.
