Hold please while I set the mood...
(Insert me dimming the lights here, lighting a candle, and turning on the 50 Shades Darker Soundtrack)
Now, let's get to it.
At first I was SUPER skeptical about this whole 50 Shades thing. UNTIL I watched them. I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT. I'm kidding, but really... I'm hooked.
I was one of those people that never read the books, and talked a WHOLE bunch of crap about how it was basically just a big sexual movie. Which, in essence... it kind of is. BUT - there truly is a plot. With that said, keep in mind - I still haven't read the books... so I'm basing my review on JUST THE MOVIE. Not the books. A lot of times when you read a book series, and then when the movies are made there are differences from the books to the movies. So, like I said.... I've ONLY watched the movies. I also intend to keep it that way. I'm too lazy to go back and read the books now that I've seen the movies.
About 2 months ago, I watched 50 Shades Of Grey. And INSTANTLY, I was hooked. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of... "you know." But, I mean... that's kind of what it's about.
Back to what I was saying, I immediately fell in love with not only Mr. Grey, but Anastasia as well. Their relationship is so intense at first, and a bit awkward if you aren't slightly prepared for what you're about to see. As the movie goes on, I found myself enthralled in their relationship that was blossoming on a WAY deeper level than just physical intimacy. And then BAM, it was over. Leaving me dying to see the second one.
For the next 2 months, I had to endure all the preview commercials on TV. Every. single. time. the commercials came on, it was like I was frozen. My eyes glued to the TV. I felt like February 10th couldn't get here soon enough. And then..... it did. :) (insert happy dance here)
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go on opening weekend. I was able to go the next weekend, though. I was THAT GIRL that went alone. ZERO shame in my game. I would have watched it 10 times over by myself.
And now for the movie review - The Lori version...
Y'all. I never buy movies. And I'm TOTALLY buying it. And 50 Shades of Grey. I loved the second one just as much as I loved the first one. There's always this lingering expectation that the second one won't be as good as the first, but that is NOT the case with this one. I love love loved it. First of all, WHY is Christian Grey such a FREAKING BABE? Like, I can't. No kidding, I came back to reality once during the movie, and my mouth was literally open. Someone probably took a picture of me, and made a meme out of me. Christian Grey, I'll marry you. Right here. Right now. There was less "you know" than 50 Shades of Grey, which I liked. I felt a little less awkward. I loved seeing their relationship go so much deeper than before. And the suspense, it totally kept me on my toes. I won't ruin the movie for you, if you haven't seen it - so, I'll stop there.
The 50 Shades Of Grey series I don't feel like is for everyone. And if it's not for you.... that's ok. Don't judge the ones that do like it! We can all dream a little.
To end things, might I just add the soundtrack ROCKS. Here you go....
OBSESSED with Code Blue. I think I've listened to it 15 times.
Until next time,
Lori - Rage Girl
