    CURIOUS? You should be., February 9, 2015

    Clarissa Bowen (Southern California) –

    This review is from: Fifty Shades of Grey (DVD)
    I don’t want to give anything away but I was fortunate enough to see an advanced screening of this film on Friday Feb. 6th in Los Angeles, and I have to say—if you are a fan of the book, the movie will likely NOT disappoint you. And if you’re not a fan of the book and are simply CURIOUS, you might be surprised (and in a good way, I hope).

    As excited as I was to see Fifty Shades of Grey, I had reasonable expectations. And while it is not perfect (though, honestly, I wouldn’t have changed much if given the chance), I felt like Sam-Taylor Johnson made an incredible film adaptation out of a wildly popular book that is some 500 pages in length—and with a restrictive R-rating, no less, for such an intensely erotic story. There is a lot missing from the book but the important stuff remains, and many favorite quotes are included.

    I think my greatest concern was with how the sex scenes would translate on to the big screen, but they made it work and handled it with style and class. When you consider how much sex is in this film (and there’s a lot—as there should be), I never once felt that it was overdone or gratuitous. It pushes a few boundaries, yes; however, everything is done in an extremely tasteful way. What Sam created here is a stunningly beautiful, artistic film unlike anything I have seen before. The chemistry and steam-factor is prevalent from the start. One thing I really loved, though, was the unexpected humor throughout. I appreciated that counterbalance. When I wasn’t holding my breath or generating heatwaves in my seat, I found myself laughing a lot—and for all the right reasons, I assure you. As a fan it was honestly everything I could have hoped for and more.

    Dakota Johnson embodies the innocent, virginal Anastasia Steele perfectly—and I so enjoyed watching her start off kind of awkward and shy and then blossoming into this confident, empowered young woman. And Jamie Dornan made an excellent Christian Grey. He exuded power and confidence (with an obvious need for control, of course), but with a pained vulnerability beneath a closely guarded steel exterior that Ana only begins to crack the surface of in this first installment. You will especially see his vulnerability in the final scene, which is actually quite heartbreaking.

    Not sure what the critics are going to make of this film but I know for sure that most fans are going to love it. And really, isn’t that the most important thing?

    4.5 STARS, BABY!! IT WOULD’VE BEEN 5, BUT THERE WERE JUST A FEW MINOR ISSUES I HAD., February 14, 2015

    4.5 STARS!! WELL DONE!!
    I am an avid LOVER of the FSOG trilogy. I’ve read the books several times and know them well. I saw the movie a few nights ago and it was awesome!! I will most likely see it again. It was hot and the music was phenomenal!! It was silly and fun in parts which broke up the seriousness of the movie. Jamie played his part so beautifully!! “Christian” is a detached, broken, disconnected man, who thinks he can never be loved. And that is EXACTLY how he came across in the movie. “Ana” is sweet, funny, unassuming, and loving. And that is EXACTLY how she came across in the movie.

    There will always be HATERS (critics) out there who think this book is nothing but abuse, beatings and promotion of violence. Seriously?? Have they actually read the books? Do the even know what BDSM is? I’m thinking no. Safe, sane, consensual is what those in the BDSM community promote.

    This is a love story with some kink. And Ana really is the one with ALLL the power. From day one. In the first book, Christian knows nothing about truly loving someone until he finds Ana. She falls very hard for him and THAT’S what the movie is about. Again–A beautiful love story…with some kink. She wants to make him happy and willing to do what he desires to make that happen.

    But Christian is so extremely conflicted, now that he knows what it’s like to begin to love someone. It’s very difficult for him to process. So at the end of the movie when he pushes her to her limit, he is wrestling so much with the conflict he’s feeling, and is trying to process it all. And when he realizes he’s gone past her limit, it’s too late. She gets angry and leaves…..thus, leading into the next book, DARKER.

    Okay, what I didn’t care for (and it’s so very little). But it’s why I only gave it 4.5 stars. The scenes seemed VERY rushed to me. The sex scenes didn’t have them talking like they did in the book. And that was when the connection was made between them. ESPECIALLY Ana’s first time. He spoke to her seductively, and it is when they actually made love. But it wasn’t in the movie, so it lacked a bit of the intimate connection. Some of the scenes, like when Ana went to visit her mom, were very rushed and some important things were left out. Meeting his family seemed rushed to me as well, IMO. I loved the texts. I wish they did more. And they will in DARKER. I hope.

    What people need to remember is, IT’S ANA, who has ALL the power. Not Christian. It’s been that way since she first fell into his office. This is also very important. This movie is an `adaptation’ of the book. It’s not going to be verbatim or it would’ve been a 4 and a 1/2 hour movie. Which would’ve been totally fine with me. Lol. It was hot, sensual, sexy as hell. And funny!! Well, done Erika!! I loved this movie and if you keep an open mind and remember what I said, you’ll LOVE it too!!

    5 THE PERFECT ESSENCE STARS!, February 13, 2015
    This review is from: Fifty Shades of Grey (DVD)
    Just yesterday I got to finally watch this movie I’ve been waiting crazy to see and now all I can say is that I was completely blown away by it. I don’t think I have ever felt so much anticipation about a movie before; getting into the theater, waiting for the trailers to roll, and then to finally see the movie start was really exciting. Yet, nothing compares to the actual watching of this movie and how it captured my heart and had it beating so hard from the very first scene to the very last one. That was just an exhilarating experience I don’t think I’ll ever forget.

    What I found most striking about the film has to be Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. She totally did it justice to Ana’s character in every way. Her acting was outstanding and so spot on that I felt I was transported right back to the book when I felt everything Ana felt because I felt it once again in the movie by watching Dakota. Really, her portray of Ana’s shyness, excitement, playfulness, and even sadness were all so very vivid in the movie that I instantly connected with her. She was just the perfect Ana and I loved how she embraced her to the max by making her look and feel both so genuine and strong from beginning to end.

    Now Mr. Grey… Oh boy, talk about intensity. Jamie Dornan really brought to life that intense persona and that seductiveness in Christian Grey’s character I loved so much. He made Christian look strong, graceful, and very much enticing as I pictured him in my head and that perfectly blended with Ana’s character. Moreover, I felt like Jamie was successful at making Christian feel like the vulnerable man he really was at the end. He precisely showed the emotional conflicts his character was going through and I really liked how he managed to transform Christian’s character.

    I think before the movie released there was some talk about Dakota and Jamie not having any chemistry in the movie. Well, I cannot negate that enough because the chemistry was all there to me and it was sizzling. I thought the sex scenes were done amazingly well. The movie team didn’t shy away from showing the exquisite passion in this book yet they always maintained a balance where sexiness and desire met pure gracefulness. I wouldn’t change a thing about those scenes, I think they embodied Ana and Christian’s connection truthfully and beautifully. So yeah, they were yummy hot!

    My only and very tiny complaint about the movie is that sometimes it felt like the flow of the scenes was a little rushed. Like some scenes needed a little bit more time, more details, or something that connected each scene to the next one in a more seamlessly way. Since I have read the books before that didn’t bother me too much really, but I felt that for people who haven’t read the book and went to see the movie, they may indeed feel that way and not connect with the story as much. I know that because that’s what happened to my husband who went to see the movie with me and had that same complaint and I found that very interesting. Perhaps some critics may feel disconnected with the movie too for those reasons hence their bad ratings. But regardless, hurray to all of us who have read the books. We can truly appreciate this movie and really see its beauty. ♥

    So yes, I still strongly believe that this movie did an outstanding job at incorporating the perfect essence of what the Fifty Shades of Grey book is all about. A beautiful and passionate love story. I’m very happy with how this movie made this incredible story even more seductive, elegant, and exquisite in every possible way and very much like the book, it was extremely successful at making me fall hard in love with the characters and the story all over again. It’s also so worth mentioning that the soundtracks in the movie are incredible. Each song connected perfectly with each scene in a way that I felt my emotions get amplified as I kept watching. Again, seeing this movie was just an exhilarating experience and I loved it so much. I cannot wait for the sequel!
