Fifty Shades of Grey

When college senior Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) steps in for her sick roommate to interview prominent businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) for their campus paper, little does she realize the path her life will take. Christian, as enigmatic as he is rich and powerful, finds himself strangely drawn to Ana, and she to him. Though sexually inexperienced, Ana plunges headlong into an affair -- and learns that Christian's true sexual proclivities push the boundaries of pain and pleasure. USA Today: Zero chemistry

Sitting through the turgid and tedious S&M melodrama that is Fifty Shades of Grey may feel like its own form of torture... Perhaps worst of all, chemistry is nil between Jamie Dornan as billionaire Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as curious college student Anastasia Steele.

The New Yorker
There you have the problem with this film. It is gray with good taste—shade upon shade of muted naughtiness, daubed within the limits of the R rating. Think of it as the “Downton Abbey” of bondage, designed neither to menace nor to offend but purely to cosset the fatigued imagination. You get dirtier talk in most action movies, and more genitalia in a TED talk on Renaissance sculpture.

This movie is atrocious beyond words and the first movie from which I've ever walked out (an hour and 17 minutes into it). The session was full of giggling middle-aged women, wetting themselves with anticipation - I cannot believe this book and movie has appeal. Are women really so bored, so desperate, that this is what gets them off?? The acting was appalling - I guess that's the end of Ms. Johnson & Mr. Dornan's careers. And I wouldn't be surprised if the actors who refused the role of Christian Grey are secretly relieved they had the sense to reject it! The script was laughable. No chemistry between the two leads. As for the 'eroticism' was completely lacking. Stilted, awkward, poor cinematography, cheesy scripting. Just terrible.

Do not waste your time or money with this. Review provided by a seo consultant "Fifty Shades of Grey" is based on a badly written book, so why someone thought they could make a decent film out of it is beyond me. Actually, I don't think anyone believed they could make a good film, the producers just wanted the money that would come in from all people who for reasons known only to themselves read the book.

I had a free ticket and I had to go in order to do a story on it. Bottom line, I'm not doing a story on it.

Okay, here's the problem, and this is what breaks my heart. We no longer know what good or great is. I am no follower of Ayn Rand, but in The Fountainhead, she predicted the rise of mediocrity, mediocrity being considered great and the norm we shoot for. It only stands to reason that at this point, some things can't even rise to that sad level. This isn't mediocre, it's pathetic. I can't believe there are people complimenting the actors. But then I can, because they have come to accept mediocrity. Something I fight against with all my heart.

There is one other problem. The book sucked; in order to like it, one had to use his or her imagination. The success of this book lay in the fantasy aspect. Sometimes imagination is more powerful than just about anything and can give you an erotic experience. Just like it is in social media marketing. This film doesn't fulfill the most inane imagination, let alone someone who really has a wild and creative one. The only fantasy it can give you is how fast you can get out of the theater.

There were people around me laughing. The ones who weren't left, and from what I found out in the lobby, actually demanded and got their money back. When was the last time you saw people leaving a movie in the middle? I'm not sure I've ever seen it, and I'll guess I've been going to movies longer than a lot of you.

I lament the loss of artistic soul, of creativity, of going for the best. I miss the days when Billy Wilder was a writer and a filmmaker. What are we left with but a horrible book was written on a first-grade level and the resulting bad movie?

The movie adaptation of E.L. James’s best-selling book “Fifty Shades of Grey” was always destined to be a blockbuster; the quality of the film was beside the point. After all, the erotic romance novel, based on saucy “Twilight” fan-fiction, did great business, despite being a 500-page lesson in how not to use a thesaurus. Millions of readers paid their dues, skimming countless boring scenes with a narrator who says nothing more profound than “holy cow!” and “Double crap!” so they could get to the good stuff: bondage-laced sex scenes between the story’s innocent protagonist and her impossibly hot, impossibly rich damaged-goods love interest. So you have to hand it to director Sam Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel for making a film that, while not as titillating as the book, is a much better adaptation than the source material deserves. By Stephanie Merry

SHOULDN’T WE ALL feel a little embarrassed about the fuss we made over 50 Shades of Grey? I don’t mean the book’s fans. I mean the anti-; the book’s critics; all of us who committed time and energy to blog posts and commentary and long essays attacking E. L. James’s novel. The focus and outrage we brought to the 50 Shades backlash were remarkable, as though we were not so much critiquing a bad book as fighting a war. The situation seemed so grave. If millions and millions of women were getting off on the idea of being sexually subjugated; if the secret fantasy buried in us all is that we meet a very rich man who’ll spank us — is this the end of feminism? Is society as a whole doomed? Obviously! We must fight this scourge, we all agreed. With our opinions. The movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” opened last week and sold more than $300 million worth of tickets worldwide. That is more than seven times the amount it cost to make the film.

A sequel seems probable. However, the writer of the book it is based on reportedly wants more creative power in the making of a sequel.

The industry newspaper Variety says E. L. James plans to write her own script for “50 Shades Darker.” But Universal Pictures is “resistant” to the idea. The studio has not even officially announced that it is making a sequel. It is holding discussions. The movie has not done nearly as well with the critics. Several movie critics called the film “boring” and “tedious.” A USA Today newspaper review said watching it “may feel like its own form of torture.”

Worse still, the depiction of BDSM within her novels which is confused with abuse, shows the personal preference of sexual variety to be something that should be overcome. It also shows possibly harmful and incorrect techniques.

Then we get onto the worse issue of glorification of abuse. Some critics and scientists have expressed the relationship has characteristics of an abusive relationship and is not BDSM at all.*

If we delve into the actual detailed writing of the book, it can be considered very poor. In my personal opinion, the characters are unbelievable. A virgin college senior meets an excessively rich businessman and suddenly it’s all creepy contracts and teenage sexual abuse stories.

All that has virtually nothing to do with BDSM in the bedrooms of the real world – which is pretty far from being some emotionless, acquisitive power game, whether you approve of it or not – and a lot more to do with hoary conceptions of what men and women want from relationships. Anastasia wants cuddling and intimacy and movie dates and hot sex where she’s the focus of attention and a stream of luxury gifts and trips to surprise destinations. Well, why not? Christian wants to whip her and use her and then send her to bed in a different room. I’m guessing he also wants not to have to remember when her damn birthday is, but that doesn’t directly come up.


Ana is just a giant mess of a human being. She's insecure to the point of it being laughable, 'klutzy' (even though she only trips twice in the entire book), and a complete ditz. She's a virgin (of course) who's never taken any sexual interest in anyone before. Right. I'm fairly certain there hasn't been a woman this naive since 'round about 1954. At one point, she thinks putting her hair in pigtails will keep her safe from Christian's lusty advances. Fuckin' really? She "flushes" constantly, and on several occasions referred to her hoo-hoo-naughty place as "down there."

Anyway, after reading the description of Christian's building (hello, first penis metaphor), I had to sit through the awful dialogue between these smarmy idiots and hope beyond hope that something, anything, would distract me enough to see me through to the end. Turns out, I found something about 15% through. I went back and counted, and kept track throughout the rest of the book, and do you have any idea how many fucking times Ana said: "Oh my" in this monumentally bad missive? Do you? I'll tell you; 79! 79 motherfucking times. "He pulled me back against his chest...oh my." "He began kissing a trail down my belly, oh my." "He's an insufferable douchenozzle, oh my!" (I'm just thankful that neither lions, tigers, nor bears were brought into this mess at any point.)

Since this is considered nothing more than "mommy porn", I will attempt to pander to that particular demographic for a moment. Were the sex scenes well-written? Well, none of it was particularly well-written. The sex scenes could be kind of...honestly, they were kind of boring. I've had more exciting sex myself, so I guess reader response to the sex scenes is dependent on reader experience. There's nothing revolutionary here, and a lot of it is just plain unrealistic. I mean, come on, he pretty much jackhammers her hymen and she walks away with nothing more than a passing, pleasant soreness? Riiiight. How about the time he gives her a handjob with a soapy washcloth? Hello? Apparently, neither one of them has ever heard of a urinary tract infection. Oh, or we could talk about her first time giving Christian a blowjob, during which Ana established herself as some kind of Queen of Deepthroat.

Now I'll be totally honest, the biggest issue I have with Fifty Shades of Shit is neither the sex nor the horrible writing. It's the plot. Thin as it is, it's still there, its core message being that, given enough time, you can change someone. While I don't have any problem with this if all you're trying to do is help them to lose weight or quit smoking, when you're talking about an emotionally and (dangerously close to) physically abusive relationship, sending that kind of message is ridiculous and irresponsible. Christian is controlling, possessive, condescending, and cruel. He doesn't allow Ana to behave as she normally would, and Ana just puts up with it, insistent that if she can give him what he wants, when he wants, as often as he wants, she can eventually begin to pull his strings. Will it work? In the books, probably. In real life? No. Almost never. How many misguided women are going to waste their lives on some emotionally retarded prick because they've read shit like this and think this kind of fucked-up fairytale will come true for them? I've known women with this mentality. "Oh, he's so dark and dangerous and threatening, but he's got a sad, lonely side, and if I could just figure out what's wrong, I could change him!"

Holy cow (crap)! Yeah, I'm very sorry but I have to use your favorite word again. LOL Awesome review, Katrina!!! Yeah, this book is such crap it's beyond me. Imagine, FSoG EMPOWERS women in their sexuality! Huh??? Oh, and thanks so much for reminding me of this verrry special term "down there". I forgot to mention it in my review...Well, my inner goddess was so delighted to read your review. :-)

Loved this:

Crap, Holy Crap, Double and Triple Crap, Oh Crap, This Crap, That Crap, any and all Crap. Speaking of crap, if I ever, ever ever have to hear/read the words "inner goddess" again, I'm going to construct a pyre out of tampons and maxi pads, light it, and toss unsuspecting women into it.

Michelle Mulkerrin TD is to appear on Brendan O'Connor's chat show this evening to review literary sensation 50 Shades of Grey. Michelle has previous when it comes to discussing the issue of fornication, so no doubt she'll have plenty to say about this dirty bike.

We hear Michelle is paying a return visit to RTÉ’s Saturday Night Show tonight, where she will be reviewing a book for presenter Brendan O’Connor. No prizes for guessing the name of the literary opus in question . . . It’s Fifty Shades of Blueshirt. Sorry, Fifty Shades of Grey.

No doubt Michelle is motivated by a passion for literature (should that be literature?) and any increased publicity would be purely coincidental. However, according to Miriam Lord, a more senior FG has already given his own pithy review of the book and explained its popularity:

And Michael Noonan drawled, in his best Limerick accent: “He beats her. That’s what it’s about. He beats her.” No need to go out and buy it now.

How To Write A Perfect Movie Review Like A Professional Film Critic

Although some students are challenging, writing movie reviews can be very easy. All you will need to know is that the structure of the review makes it an interesting task. Here is provided a step-by-step process on how to write a good movie review or write a movie review introduction that any student can follow:

Watch The Said Movie: Before you review a movie, you should watch it. You can't review videos you haven't seen. So, to be successful, watch the movie at least twice. Note: Don't look like a regular movie fan or movie lover. Focus through the movie and be conscious. Take notes as needed. Have your notebook and pen handy as you need to take notes.

Record all scenes and characters (major and minor). Take great care not to miss anything.

Research On The Movie: To watch the movie, you should review the movie and feel. Besides, researching the film in online magazines and news websites should be easy and exciting. The investigation is based on what you saw in the film. In your research, you need to know who the filmmaker is, the film's creation, the feature, the historical events that led to the film, the location, the plot, etc?

Knowing the details behind the film makes it more understandable and engaging. If you do not understand the picture, keep in mind that you cannot go to the next level, including analysis. If you do not have a clear understanding of the film, do not take the next step. If you need to look again until you have it completely, do it. The following should be part of your invention about the film:

1. Genre

2. Names of the lead actors

3. Title and year

4. Title of the book (if it's based on a book)

5. Name of the director

Preview The Text: Make an outline with which to write your text. The big picture will help you organize your big picture concisely and logically. The outline is more like a wireframe on which the whole study will stand. A good draft will produce a perfect report, and the reverse is also true.

If you know the details behind the movie, the movie will be more understandable and compelling. If you do not understand the film, note that you cannot go to the next analysis stage. Try not to go to the next level until you understand the vivid movie. Just do it again until you get it completely. The following should be part of your findings related to this co

1. Introduction

● Title

● Date released

● Background info

● Cast

● Director

2. Summary of the story

3. Creative elements

4. Analysis of the plot elements

5. Opinions on Characters, Camera techniques, Dialogues, Colors, Mood, Tone, Symbols, etc.

6. Conclusion:

Analyzing The Movie: After you have fully understood the movie, you can start analyzing it. Critically evaluate the film from start to finish, paying attention to every detail. If you notice an incomprehensible part during the analysis, look again to grasp the idea depicted there fully. Once you fully understand this, it is time to start writing your movie review. To write a decent analysis, you must be able to write a critical analysis of the film.

Supplement Your Feedback With Examples: When watching a movie, your observations should be supported by examples, that is, mention the scenes in which the event took place. If the act is wrong, mention it but give examples to support that statement. You can also mention the poorly designed characters visible in the movie and others. Everything you saw in the film should be noted.

Examples to follow include placement, poor or beautiful dialogue, quotes that appeal to you, bad speeches, mistakes, editing mistakes, and so on. As part of the relevant social media marketing one common advice people get is while placing proper examples in the review, one must remember that blankets are not enough to describe how amazing or terrible a movie is; you need to back your claim up with the movie's evidence. That's why it's called a movie review, not a sample interview to get feedback on the film.

Comment On The Originality Of The Film: Finally, mention the uniqueness of the film you have seen. But while the film is a standard feature traditionally, you can still cite it. A regular movie is still a movie. Write your review: With all the above facts, you can now use the sketch to write your movie review. Make each section easy and enjoyable to read. The important thing is to make the introduction attractive and charming. You should take a grand opening trip that will grab the attention of any reader. A good start keeps readers engaged.

Suppose Your Introduction Is Tight And Engaging: Any sloppy body will lose your drive. Therefore, make the body informative and attractive. The purpose of the review is to reveal as much information as possible. Therefore, do your best to give the reader complete information about the film. Engage your analytical mind. Another significant part of the review is the conclusion or conclusion. Here you get your take on the film with the evidence revealed on the body. Connect the conclusion to the introduction in a constructive way.

Final Draft Editing: After creating the first version of the review, you can rewrite the final draft after editing. You should also check the final draft for spelling and grammar errors. Make sure the statements are logically connected and check the format used. Make a final comparison between your work and the requirements of your teacher or instructor.

Check with a free word counter to see how many words you need and make them shorter than necessary, but if not, add relevant information to configure them. Do not add irrelevant details due to free space. Make sure your final submission is properly edited, sophisticated, plagiarized, and presented in the recommended format or style.

Important Tips to Follow While Writing a Movie Review:

Since a film review essay requires dedication and time investment, you should know the special tips to get you assigned. Remember that this work's right result will increase your rank, so it needs to be taken seriously. If you want to know how to write a film critic easily, this section will tell you.

● Watch the film at least two times ● Pay attention to details ● Watch the movie not as an audience but with an analytic mindset of a professional reviewer ● If you have seen it already, make sure you re-watch it for the assignment. ● Don't be in a hurry - take your time, but be aware of the deadline ● Take notes as you watch ● Do not write outside the contest of your main work.

Elements of a Professional Movie Review:

According to the leading seo consultant, one common thing about these reviews is that they all should have the same elements regardless of style. The elements of a film review provide the structure on which you will base the analysis. An appropriate film review format includes the following:

Title: The movie title appears not only in the title but also in the reviews. Mention it in the text and present it in the introductory paragraph. There is no harm in doing this.

Storyline (Plot): A movie review reveals only a synopsis of the movie. Please present it briefly for those who still want to see it. When you start writing a movie review, never have the idea that your professor or other readers have seen the movie. So don't forget the important points and events. Your job is to make the movie clear to the reader. It's about mentioning the flaws mentioned and the great things and shortcomings of the filmmaker.

Filmmaker: What is a film analysis without a filmmaker? Your review should present it to him or her. Therefore, dedicate a paragraph to it, write about the type of personality it is. If relevant, reveal the filmmaker's political stance, background, controversial life of the person (if any), etc. You can take the opportunity to talk about other movies the director has worked on so far and then hook him up. With one in the review.

Importance For Your Class: Link between the content of the film or documentary and the title of your lesson. Check its importance for historical accuracy. If the film is made for a history class, discuss the excessive dramatization shown in the act. Although, if the film is based on a book that you reviewed in one of your classes, mention the relationship between the book and the film: deviation from the state, comparisons, and other elements in the book missing from the film. ۔

Creative Elements: Creative elements create or spoil films, which is why filmmakers do their best to add them to their films. Your job is to indicate how these elements work in the plot and throughout the film. For example, can you comment on the effectiveness of sound effects in enhancing your movie experience? Let's talk about lighting, costume, makeup, colors, camera, etc.

Actor: The actors perform the film; There is no film without them. Your response should show whether they performed well or badly. Indicate whether their game was realistic or not. Be sure to mention if he has the skills and charisma to portray the role he played. You can also indicate whether they were suitable for their role. Besides, you can suggest actors who can play better roles than in the film.

Movie Review Mistakes You Should Avoid:

After all your strenuous work submitting your film report, you may be shocked that your efforts have been challenged. You may want to know why, but you may have made one of the following common mistakes:

Focus On The Wrong Thing: Don't shift your focus. You want to connect the film with some historical events. However, do not provide unnecessary analysis or details that are not related to the film in question. For example, avoid telling the story of a movie unless it is about the film industry's evolution. Try to focus.

Isolation From Review: You are about to write a review. Therefore, do not join the evaluation. The review already includes your name and signature, so the pronoun that is near "pronoun" should be omitted. The mistake most students make is writing in the first person; B. "I really like the film, I admired the main character" and so on. Because the review reveals your understanding, opinion, likes, and dislikes, there is no need to involve yourself in it.

No Proper investigation: As mentioned above, watching a movie is one side of the coin. You need to check other details. Studying a movie is very important because it gives you all the details that a movie doesn't have.

Avoid Generalizations And Stay True: Don't generalize your thoughts when writing a movie review. Avoid general statements such as "great movies," "beautiful sets," and "good acting." Please support any comments you make with proof of the movie.

Unstructured Review: Do not ever write a movie review without the structure; it will show you a disorganized student. Therefore, prepare your observation appropriately by first making a plan and organizing your work.

Avoid Irrelevant Discussions: do not explain problems that are not directly related to the film being analyzed.
