The movie EVERYONE is talking about: Fifty Shades of Grey

2015-02-12 12:47

Overview: We've read the books (in a day) and we've giggled with our girlfriends about the saucy antics of Anastasia and Christian. Now, after much anticipation, the most talked about movie has finally come to life.

What’s it about? Do we seriously need to give you the plot? No. You've totes read all about it and know the premise. But there's just something about seeing Christian Grey come to life. His secret kinky antics played out on an innocent and confused Anastasia is, obviously, such a different experience from reading the book.

Our fave bits: There has been so much said about there not being enough sex in this flick. And even the fact that there isn't enough peen (Ladies, you don't even get a glimpse of it) If you've read the books, you'll know that there's so much detail. But, hello, this wasn't going to be an x-rated flick. That's the beauty of the book: it took a 'taboo' topic and turned it into a craze that saw millions of people across the globe fascinated. Obviously, because Nu Metro tells us that it has the highest number of pre-sales that they've ever had. So, we're talking record breaking stuff here. It's no masterpiece. This isn't up for an Oscar. Duh. It's got a bit of romance, drama, comedy and lots of sexual innuendo.  Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are superb. If you took the books as lightly as you should have, then there's no doubt that you'll enjoy this movie. But book now. Because tickets are bound to be hard to get.

Rating: 5/5 Yes. We just did that.
