I liked it not because I enjoy abusive relationships, and not because of the sex. Yes, there were steamy and Jaime Dornan is beyond beautiful. But I liked the movie because of how Anastasia fell for a guy, but at the same time stood for herself when she needed to. She realized it was enough, and SPOILER ALERT, left when she realized it was not a good relationship for her. She deserves flowers and hearts. I also enjoyed it because for the entire movie I laughed. I needed Christian to say his infamous quote: “I dont make love, I f**k hard” and when that happened, i couldnt help but laugh, hard. In the book it was funny, but I didnt picture Mr. Grey with a completely poker face. I picture him saying it as “pass me the butter please” face, no emotions whatsoever but at the same time with a tranquil expression. A normal expression actually. But when that dead-serious face said that, I cracked up. The toast scene was funny too, weird to the point of funny.
I think i also enjoyed it because the people in the movie theater interacted with the movie. When I watched Mockinjay part 1, everybody was in silence, like if they talked they would be sent to District 13. But last Tuesday, everybody laughed, commented, and interacted with the movie. The 60 something women besides me had something to say about everything that was going on in the movie. “I thought people shaved in this century”, “d**n hot that Christian guy”, “spank her harder you guy”.
I also liked how un-perfect certain things were. First of all Jaime Dornan shaved, and that is not okay. And Dakota Johnson didnt, and that is not okay. How Christian’s eyes were indeed beautiful, but not piercing into your soul.
Overall i liked the movie. It was good. Not Mean Girls good, but an okay i didn’t waste my 5$ good.
