This post is long overdue and I have been itching to write about the movie but I got so busy with work! Ugh. On the lighter note, I have done all my projects for the week so I am finally free to put my thoughts into words right now It’s 9:39pm and here’s my take on the Fifty Shades of Grey Movie! Fifty shades of grey movie review
After graduation, one of my best friends sent me the Fifty Shades of Grey eBooks and I never looked at neckties the same way again. Haha! Kidding aside, the book wasn’t so popular here in the Philippines at that time or I just didn’t know that people were reading it too, like me.hehe But one thing’s for sure, I got over the Grey Fever long before fellow girls slash women went gaga over Christian Grey. (But then again who knows, everyone might’ve read it and they just kept mum about it haha!)
I’m not going to compare the book with the movie, like I always do whenever I watch a movie that is book based. It’s because I want to save myself from frustration which I had when I watched a movie that was book based and it turned out to be completely different from the book. Sigh. To be honest though, I wasn’t much of a fan of the actors playing the characters in Fifty Shades. But I must say they have really played the role really well. I liked how they stirred the same emotions I had while I was reading the book and yes,
(Insert the name of the actor who played Christian Grey) Jamie Dornan was a great Christian Grey (must be all that running! hehe). Clap clap! At first I thought the tandem wouldn’t work but I was wrong. He and Dakota were perfect!
Another thing I really admired in the movie was how they brought to life the most intimate scenes from the first book. Even though the movie was full of blurs and black holes (Not sure if other countries censored it too) and the number of intimate scenes weren’t as many as it was on the book, it was still really good. I wasn’t able to watch it with my best friend but to quote her words, she said “it was classy”. I’ve never really connected the world classy to steamy lovemaking especially if it was Christian Grey doing it. Haha! Until the movie though, it was indeed well thought of and very well played by the actors. *insert S&M song here by Rihanna haha!*
If you still haven’t noticed it yet, I love the movie! It was worth the wait. By the time the movie ended, I needed therapy haha! Just like I always do whenever a series ends. I was back on my Grey Fever but this time, at least there’s a movie I could watch over and over again if I have to. Although I think I might re-read the book again.
If you haven’t watched the movie yet, watch it. If you haven’t read the book, read it. It’s totally worth your time. My favorite book was the third one. What can I say, I’m a hopeless romantic and I love happy endings that’s why most of my favorites are the last book of any series.
