I loved both Christian and Anna. Yes, I think sometimes Jamie struggled with his role of Christian – but hey, I think a lot of ‘nilla men would. But from the moment Christian looked Anna in the eye and said, “I don’t make love. I fuck.” I was his. Totally. My fucking kind of man.
You need to look at 50 Shades of Grey not as a movie made from a lousy book that made MILLIONS of dollars. Instead, go looking for a nice romance with quite a few hot scenes.
I do wish Christian had insisted that Anna submit to some aftercare after the 6 whaps with a belt, but…that’s the submissive in me talking.
With the movie, they removed so much of the stuff that bored me into DNF’ing the book.
Dialogue: 4 stars
Characterization: 5 stars for Anna, 4 stars for Christian
Romance: 5 stars
Hotness factor: 3.5 stars
Over all? A firm 4 star movie. Now I just need to wait until the DVD comes out – hopefully with a director’s cut where they put in all the sexy stuff they took out.
Oh, and one final set of thoughts – Elliot was so not what I expected. Knowing that 50 Shades is a Twilight Fanfic and Elliot was actually Emmett, I was pleasantly surprised at who they cast and how he acted. So much better than the I expected. AND the actress they cast as Christian’s mom? Marcia Harden I will admit I would have first seen as Mrs. Robinson…but after the first shock, I think she did a fantastic job as his mother.
Now, when’s part II coming out?
