    I liked it as a romance..the leads had chemistry and it was sweet watching them get to know each other. Dakota Johnson steals the show . Dornan is unbelievably hot but has a wobbly american accent. He just didn't convince me that he has a dark s&m side. And this is where the movie fails. when he takes Anastasia to his play room for kinky sex he is wearing jeans. While the female lead is naked all the time and told to be comfortable in her nakedness the male lead performs all kinds of sex while wearing jeans..the movie just didn't have the guts to venture into s&m material. The lead actor apparently caused problems during production ...he didn't want to show any frontal nudity. We get a one second glimpse of the base of his penis. This was just a skinnier twilight movie slickly shot. I enjoyed it but it didn't go the distance.
    The whole film is based around the sexual contract that Anastasia is supposed to sign. Watching the male lead fall in love with her which is not what he wants at all Is the movies biggest strength. I hope the second film addresses his darker side and psychology better. What are the real reasons for someone to become a dominant and have total control over their partner?? Why so cold and unemotional??

    I never read the book. I just wanted to see what this"Worldwide phenomenon" is all about. Didn't seem like a chick flick to me. I wanted to see the film's take on sexuality and power.

    lol I never read it either. My guy bought the book and I shamed him into not reading it. (Just for fun.) But then I heard a comment about the movie that the really interesting thing is the shift of power from the guy to the girl as he falls in love and I thought "CHICK FLICK!" lol I mean, can you imagine a Colt flick dungeon master falling in love with his twink after flaying him and suddenly getting all lovey dovey? I don't think S&M works that way...

    People are people no matter how hard one hides their feelings...we all need to be loved. Someone who doesn't need love is not human. That's why I liked the movie. This young girl comes along and changes his whole way of thinking.

    I read the books. It felt like reading a fantasy/journal entry of a 13 year old girl. Well, an adult with the mind of 13 year old at least.
    The books are terribly written. But they have interesting story. And for films to be commercially successful, the no. 1 ingredient is an interesting story. The films will probably do well commercially.

    I was just kidding, mate. Glad you enjoyed it.

    It's about the power of advertising.

    Here's todays article from a writer on sex and sexuality that I read frequently - Tracy Clark Flory

    “50 Shades” of coercive sex: The movie is even worse than the book

    BDSM experts say the film portrays "alarming and abusive" sex and violates everything the community values

    I was in Powells the other day, and they had a huge display... apparently there are three or four of those books. ...Funny how those are right by the check-out but the gay books are hidden up on the top floor icon_confused.gif

    I really don't see how anyone can enjoy this series. Granted, I did not / will not see the movie, but I tried reading the first book and just couldn't. The writing style is so immature. It's like a 13-year old virgin describing their fantasies.

    That's because it's not actual literature. It's a fan fic.

    So true.

    I didn't even know what 50 Shades of Grey was, but I heard someone say remix of Crazy in Love and I looked at the trailer just for the song.

    Exactly. On the other hand, romance movies are fine.
