Re: Rate / Review the Last Film you've seen v.3

Fifty Shades Of Grey

Honestly it wasn't that bad. The source material is terrible, but they did the best they could with it. Dakota Johnson was very good. She looks the part. Very pretty, and quite brave to play this character given the damage it could have done to her career if it didn't work. The guy playing Christian Grey was basically a cardboard cutout, but that wasn't his fault. He didn't have much of a character to work with. It's about as sexy as a piece of toast though. Might have been better served had the book been written and adapted during the era of Nine and Half Weeks and Basic Instinct, both of which were far more explicit. The film doesn't take itself too seriously. It knows it's trashy, escapist, nonsense, and in that context, it's a success. It's the first part of a trilogy I presume, but this is probably the best it will get, since the second and third books are truly terrible. But as a stand alone film, it's fine. I recommend checking it out, but don't watch it with your parents.
