Happy Sunday everyone!! I should start out by saying that I don’t typically go to the movies unless I REALLY want to see something. I have a hard time sitting still and I often like to talk just a little too much. So that being said, I read the books and wanted to see what all the hype was about, so I spent my Sunday afternoon watching 50 Shades of Grey with a couple of friends.
First of all let me say that I the main reason I wanted to see this movie was to see how on earth they were going to put all those sex scenes on the big screen. I mean the entire first book is filled with sex and it was basically like reading porn.
So how did the movie play out? For starters there was a lot of nudity for both people, mainly the main actress Dakota Johnson. Surprisingly enough there was a decent amount of crazy sex scenes just like the book which honestly made me a little uncomfortable. I almost felt like I was watching soft-core porn today with a dozen other people.
How was the acting? Mediocre at best. Dakota was actually pretty good however the man they found to play Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), I was not impressed with at all. I almost felt like he was the one making things very awkward. I also didn’t find him particularly attractive so that probably didn’t help things. Now if Ian Somerhalder had played him I might be writing a slightly different review.
So basically the movie was just okay in my book. I actually thought the book was much better-the characters had much more chemistry in the book then they seemed to in the movie. I know I’m a little late to the party with this review but I figured why not, maybe I can save someone $10 and just wait until it comes on demand!
Have you seen the movie? What did you think and did you like the book better? Tell us in the comments below!
