Fifty Shades of Grey: A Movie Review
I got the chance to go see one of the most highly anticipated films on 2015 on Valentine's Day weekend. I'm not afraid to admit that I'm a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey and it's other two sequels. I joined the band wagon of one of those people who were dying to see how much of the book was adapted into this movie.
After watching it, I did have my own opinion on it along with everyone else, but I kept everything to myself. However, after being asked so many questions from my peers who haven't seen the movie about what was the movie like, I felt my tongue slipping out so many times about how the movie is.
So without further a do, here is how I felt about the movie.
The movie was great when it came to telling the love story between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. If you read the book you know there it is a love story centered a around a girl just graduating college, and a billionaire who swoops her off her feet. She is the first person he has ever fallen in love with. He has a terrible starter life, which in many ways led him becoming the person that he is. Everyone has demons and Anastasia is experiencing them one by one as Christian slowly begins to open up to her.
I thought they adapted the love story beautifully.
Dakota Johnson stands out throughout the whole movie as Anastasia. Often times, I found myself focusing more on her than Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. He played the role too, but Dakota is the one to watch when it comes to this movie.
If you are expecting a lot of sex scenes, you'll be disappointed. In my opinion, I knew they weren't going to put all the sex scenes in the film. Some of them weren't really necessary to adapt. They filled the movie in with the most important sex scenes the story arch wonderfully. Still, they are sensual and moving with the right music playing in the background from The Weeknd to Beyonce. There will be moments when you might possibly have to cross your legs to avoid others seeing your erection, but that's means the movie did exactly what it was supposed to do. Get you excited.
Overall, great cast, great music, great adaptation when it comes to the love story more than the sex. This is one of the movies to go see this year.
