In May of 2011, a book called Fifty Shades of Grey gave women everywhere something to fantasize about. E.L James somehow took the bad boy that every girl loves, infused him with severe psychological problems, and suddenly a viral sex shop advertisement was born. Then every girl’s dream came true- a movie deal was born from these naughty books.
We have been hearing about the Fifty Shades of Grey film for a really long time. In fact, it’s pretty impressive that a trailer even came together. For awhile, there were no actors that would even play Christian Grey on screen. Now, women everywhere are swooning at the thought of the handsome Jamie Dornan tying them up and beating them for pleasure. Obviously, nothing says romance on Valentine’s Day like a sexed-up psychopath. If this is what is giving most women their kicks these days, so be it.
No production company or studio wants a film that’s rated X. The MPAA is a joke since there’s no rhyme or reason behind their ratings, however, it looks really bad for a film to be released and widely advertised as ‘rated X.’ The film for Fifty Shades of Grey is going to be nothing like the book. Sorry E.L James, you’re a horrible writer.. This is probably one case where the movie might actually be better than the book.
Anastasia already seems much less annoying in the trailer. We won’t have to read or hear the phrase, “She pursed her lips” 2,500 times. The awkwardly described sex scenes might actually be a bit more intriguing on film. Hopefully, they will show a bit less than what appears in some people’s imaginations. The bottom line- don’t expect to see a pornographic film. Expect to see some underdeveloped characters who somehow have complex emotional issues, having a lot of sex. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go find the keys to these handcuffs.
