Before my friends and I watch the movie, we were really excited about it (just like everybody else). We didn’t know how the movie will interpret the book. Everyone is talking about it. The social media is just flooding with praises and ofcourse, bashes of the movie. It was very controversial in terms of its sexual appeal and liberated theme. The fans of the book even died (well, almost dying) to know the actors that will be given the role of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, which apparently landed on Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. Everyone has their own fantasies. Some people who have read the book maybe disappointed. I was. When I finished the first book, I was like “What the hell? Is this serious? Is the book all about sex and nothing else?” I thought it was very idealistic and a fantasy. Since I was left hanging from the ending of the first book, I continued reading the second book entitled Fifty Shades Darker. I started to like it because it made sense and became more interesting. I even fell inlove with it (maybe with Christian Grey only). There is already a spice in it other than sex.
It is about how a person changes the other or how both of them change in becoming this inseparable couple.
Then, I finished the last book Fifty Shades Freed. There was more than just sex, there was romance – real feelings. The movie is indeed not bad at all!!! People somewhat overreacted on how sexual it’s gonna be. Well it is, for underaged but I don’t see it that way. There are some scenes maybe a bit sexually brutal. Well, in the first part of the movie me and my friends were laughing at Ana Steele (in a good way) because of her being so naive and funny. And I think every girl would dream for a Christian Grey in their lives – rich, handsome, and maybe they would also consider a control freak. Some maybe disappointed upon watching the movie. They just don’t get it. Most people see it as trash just like some say about book. I can’t imagine how a person like E.L. James has a huge imagination and wide vocabulary to write the Fifty Shades trilogy. As a fan, the movie didn’t disappoint me at all. I was happily satisfied. Jamie and Dakota gave justice in portraying the characters, and I salute them for being so bold (brave not nude, or maybe both) about it. The essence of the book is evident. I can’t wait for the sequel! 🙂
