Movie Review Number Two!!!!
Movie Title: Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Okay, so I know that I don't do a lot of these reviews, but as this film has so many people talking about it, I thought I should.
I watched Fifty Shades yesterday with a bunch of friends, and despite all the comments on Twitter and Facebook etc... about how shit it was, I completely disagree. Its a bloomin' good film!
The casting was excellent, and although I tried not to during the film, I did notice many similarities between Anastasia and Christian, and Bella and Edward. Including the whole 'incapable of leaving you alone' thing. But this makes sense, as the novel was originally written as Twilight fan fiction.
Anastasia was played by the amazing Dakota Johnson, who really stepped into the world of shy, nervous, Miss Steele as she was thrown into the life of a 'submissive'.
The role of Christian Grey, also known as 'the dominant', was played by Jamie Dornan, that way-too-attractive guy that everyone talks about from 'Marie Antoinette' and 'Shadows in the Sun', and boy did he played it well. If you didn't come out the cinema drooling, then you must have spent most of the time on you phone.
To be honest, I was annoyed with the ending, I mean, why would you do that to us??? There better be a sequel or so help me...
All in all, I loved the film, and despite wanting to shield my eyes during some of the more 'explicit' parts, I thought it was a brilliant take on one of the world's more...'alternative' novels.
Congrats to everyone who made it happen, and I hope there's a part two!
