Okay, I did it. I went to see Fifty Shades of Grey…
First of all let me say this will certainly not be a blow by blow description of the movie (because there was oddly none of that going on at all!)
I took notes. My notes suck… the theatre was dark. I am going to list my thoughts though. (these are the “notes” I took.
- Cell phones don’t have dial tones.
- Only silly girls faint.
- written consent “fuck the paperwork.” (I actually really liked that part.)
- helicopter song = awesome.
- Not sure if it is hot or creepy- him showing up like that. (turned out hot.)
- kinda sweet- date night.
- Champagne in tea cups
- Cinderella with sex.
- So hard to take “Because I’m fifty shades of fucked up” seriously
- The end sucks.
Okay- so… There was not as much sex as I was afraid there would be. I actually found the sex scenes kinda disappointing. I was kinda captivated though. The whole ice cube thing. Yes please. (Wait- that may be too much. I should probably take that part out. No, I’m leaving it.)
I do want to say this though…. I know a lot of people have a lot of things to say about this movie- and this whole situation, but I think it was oddly kinda sweet. He was very attentive, and he kept telling her how devoted he would be. Seems to me that if you take out the spanking… It is an applicable metaphor for the relationships that women claim they crave. We want a man to be driven crazy, and we want him to be devoted to us.
So, I can’t actually recommend this as a good movie- it is not. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it.
Oh, and the soundtrack. Oh holy hell. It’s hot. I may have to buy that one. 😉
So, Michelle- thanks for this. I went because you said your husband enjoyed it. I kinda liked it to.
PS. Jamie Dornan- I would never let your call go to voicemail.
