one of my absolute favorites!
Good movie, but best of all time? Hardly . . .
One of the worst ways to make a cult movie is to set out to make a cult movie.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
I don't understand where the hate against this movie comes from: if you adjust your expectations you get rewarded. To start with, it's not a piece of art, it's just another romcom, a teenager movie. And no, it's not porn, erotic scenes are very decent imho, the camera always stops before showing too much, and if someone believes teenagers nowadays would be shocked by these scenes, you don't know what you're talking about. I expected the protagonists to be lousy, yet I must confess they are convincing in their roles, and believe me I had a prejudice against them! I find the story be very suitable for today's young generation - in this material world obsessed with sex and false images here there are the two characters being authentic ( she is a virgin at more than twenty, no false breasts, quite common facial features, romantic, looking for the human being beyond the public image and the wealth; and him, looking for a true, ingenue and smart girl) - something unusual among the plethora of in-human movie characters. So if you understand every story is a form of message, this is a good story put in the form of a movie
Yeah, let's watch this movie.. sex scene.. not bad .. sh** , another sex scene.. where's the story? Fu** my life, another sex scene!! It's the end and I didn't understand anything.. whaaat another sex scene!! ..really?
I cannot believe I actually watched this. Me, who solemnly swore he wouldn't watch such rubbish, made the bold choice to watch this for the sake of his friend. That's how kind I am. I would succumb to this for friendship. Honestly though, this has less substance than a used condom. I'm not even going to summarise the "plot", because there was hardly any. Young girl falls in love with rich man who creates a contract for some submissive dominance relationship thing. I don't know, and I don't care. The film is shot well atleast, and has aesthetic appeal. Don't forget the hardcore foreplay and rough sex...oh wait, it's tame? Oh dear. I've seen more convincing sex (and better plot) in a 70's soft porno. The screenplay can be best described as monotonous. Example: "I don't make love. I f*ck...hard". Or even: "Because I'm fifty shades of f*cked up, Anastasia". What even was this!? Have we, the human race, actually come to this!? I can't comprehend the stupidity of this dialogue and how undramatic it was. The most excitement I had was attempting to work out the word for a 'vagina wig' which I'm sure Dakota Johnson was wearing. "Hmmm I know it sounds like mankini? No wait, I'll FaceTime my mum, she'll know...MERKIN! It's a merkin!". The sex, which the plot clearly revolves around, is too funny to watch. Whips, chains, rope...we got it all, and it's hilarious. Then the accompaniment of generic pop songs, oh yes it gets better. Bursting into Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" has never felt so good. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan were abysmal, not their fault though to be fair. Goes to show that a screenplay is the most central and important aspect to a captivating film. And captivating this is not. However, my life is now complete. This film brought me joy. It is so atrocious that I actually loved it. Get ready for when I watch the sequel, I can't wait...
This movie seemed preposterous to me. I mean, I've got no problem with the idea that some people are turned on by being dominant, even by inflicting pain, and I'm equally O.K. with the idea that others might be turned on by being submissive, or even (though more rarely) from receiving pain. But I can't get my head around the idea that a beautiful, sexy, smart, interesting woman like Anastasia (as portrayed by Dakota Johnson) would have any interest at all in a mindless, boring, selfish, cardboard cutout of a man like Christian. He has money. Great. That's always a plus. But is having money really enough to make up for his utter lack of any discernable personality? I don't understand what would motivate this woman to do anything she does.
