How 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.
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.
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.

“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. Written by MischaLeCroix (imdb.com)”
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”.
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.

I want you to be reminded that I’ve been here.
You are mine.”
