Film Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

ReviewAlexa RabiniComment

Film: Fifty Shades of Grey // Genre: Erotic Drama // In Theaters: February 13, 2015 (USA) Rated: R // Time: 2hr 5min
Directed By: Sam Taylor-Johnson // Screenplay By: Kelly Marcel // Story By: El James
Starring:  Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eloise Mumford, and Luke Grimes.
Synopsis: When college senior Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) steps in for her sick roommate to interview prominent businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) for their campus paper, little does she realize the path her life will take. Christian, as enigmatic as he is rich and powerful, finds himself strangely drawn to Ana, and she to him. Though sexually inexperienced, Ana plunges headlong into an affair -- and learns that Christian's true sexual proclivities push the boundaries of pain and pleasure.

Now I'm not a big fan of this book like my friend Sasha is, I loved the book series but I'm surely not obsessed with these characters like most so I went in not really caring if they messed up. Surely though they did, my friend ranted and ranted but for me I enjoyed it. Could they have done better? Oh yes, but overall I thought it was decent. Dakota Johnson is my new Woman Crush for sure, I loved her more than I did with Kristen Stewart in Twilight. Now for those who haven't read the books, this is technically a twilight fan fiction novel that is about sex instead of vampires. Cool right? So my complaints and comparisons from the book to movie are:

  • He always wears his shirt in the movie where as in the book he hides it for awhile
  • Jamie, should have practiced his American accent more - too much Irish popped out
  • Jamie should have worn "Gray" eye contacts for the close ups - to stick to the book
  • Because of this accent problem he screwed up on great lines like "Laters Baby"
  • The fact Ana would call her mom "mama" over and over on the phone - did not like that
  • They left out the part where Ana trades in her flip phone for a blackberry - why does she have a flip phone??

Rating: ★★★☆ | Best time to see it? In Theaters

Superbowl Sunday

The theme of this week is Superbowl Sunday Ads! Because Vine is popular, companies will pay some popular Viners to make a "vine commercial advertisement". You would think this would be annoying but what they come up with is actually quite funny and worthy! Check out last Sunday's Superbowl "Vine Ads"
