The 50 shades movie, coming out on Valentine's Day, has gotten a lot of hype. I haven't read the books but the bloggers who have tend to not give them good reviews. They are said to be poorly written. But they still have made our lifestyle a bit more mainstream even if they aren't a good portrayal of it.
Here's the link to the NY Times review:
The reviewer says the movie, like the book, "is a wildly confused treatment of a perennial confusing subject. Sex is a knotty business, perhaps all the more so when actual knots are involved.''
He ends it by asking why so many women read the books -- why not more men? -- when they have no literary value. He said for fun. He said it might not be a good movie and then says, "OK, it's a terrible movie'' but "it might nonetheless be a movie that feels good to see, whether you squirm or giggle or roll your eyes or just sit still and take the punishment.''
You can read the whole review by clicking the link.
And if you go to chasingmechasingyou.blogspot.com, there's a funny cartoon saying the movie is like eating a Big Mac.
And did you read the books and will you see the movie?.
In my next post, I will link to an interview with the director about Anatasia having a bush at the start of the movie.
