I went to see 50 Shades last Friday and I loved it. Before I walked into the theater I posted a little “Question of the Day” on my blog’s Facebook page and didn’t even think about it again until I walked out and saw the million and one notifications on my phone about that post.
I honestly didn’t know that anyone that liked my page would have such a strong reaction to me seeing that movie. I also wasn’t expecting the rude comments I got on my Instagram account I got for this picture either. Maybe because it was captioned “Channeling my inner Christian Grey”??
Today I thought I would share with you my thoughts on the movie. First of all let me preface this by saying that I read all three books when they first came out and I loved those as well. I do not think that Christian and Ana’s relationship was one of abuse nor do I think that she was raped or forced to do anything against her will. I do not like that fact that she was a virgin in the books/movie because I can’t see anyone who has never had sex before doing those things that quickly.
Also can I just say that I am talking about fictional characters and not real people? The way people reacted you would think that these were real people. Ugh.
Back to the movie. I bought my tickets well in advance and saw it with a good friend. We both loved it and didn’t see any problems with it. If you read the books then you know that the relationship between Christian and Ana is very awkward to start and in the second and third book you really see the love. The movie left out a lot and actually a big part of what it left out was the sex.
A lot of people commented on my Facebook post that this movie was pornography. Think what you will but I have to see penetration in order to call it pornography and there was none of that shown in the movie. I also never saw either character full frontal though you could definitely tell from the side views that they both need a good wax, if I’m being honest…and I always try to be on this blog.
Without trying to give too much away for those who want to see the movie I will stop this post here because I hate spoilers!!
If you have read the book and want to see the movie I don’t think you will be disappointed. If you haven’t read it or watched the movie then how are you judging what you haven’t even read or seen?
So please tell me dear blog readers, will you be seeing 50 Shades of Grey?
Why or why not?
