Well I had my second appointment to see Mr Grey and the lovely Ms Steele today.
Yes I've read the books and seen the movies and I have to admit I like them. I don't see what everyones problem is and why the haters hate it so much.
You do need a very open mind to take in all the bits of sauciness but frankly I've seen just as much naughtiness on the tv. For those who call it porn, no it's not, that kind of opinion will come from someone who has never seen any and because it shows sex scenes (oh I said it!) it's got to be porn. There are different categories and it edges more towards erotic in my eyes, and my eyes have seen all sorts but that's a different blog.
If you forget all the sexy bits, there is a detailed story behind it providing a good, quite dark drama about a man who was a victim of abuse, how he uses his control over women to distract him from having real feelings and the ability to commit to a long term relationship. He has to learn to love and I so want him to battle his demons and live happily ever after. There I go again, a hopeless romantic and want the fairytale ending for everyone.
Anastasia certainly has her work cut out bless her. I bet she just constantly wonders what she let herself in for and handles the very complex life of Christian Grey quite well. I mean with complexity comes money, a yacht and many houses, oh and a helicopter. You do have to question whether it's just worth popping on the handcuffs now and again surely?
The cast work well together, and I do like the humour they add into the sex scenes just in case you go to the cinema with someone you've not known that long. My friend and I had the cinema to ourselves so we just constantly remarked on knickers being too small, how she just hasn't got enough bottom for spanking and I personally would have probably broken a few bones being thrown about in bed like that at my age now. My bones are getting weaker now, I'm needing cod liver oil not baby oil!!! Maybe I should stick to Disney films instead, if I'm honest I'm a bit exhausted after watching all that today, it's the most sex I've seen in ages. But NO! I'm standing by the 50 Shades mob and I will see it to the end......bring on the final film.
The books were not supposed to win any literature prizes, they were just meant as an easy read and that's exactly what they are. So don't expect too much, accept it for what it is, a drama with a bit of fun and enough belts and buckles, not even Amazon could stock and have ready on a next day delivery. I reckon My Grey is definitely an Amazon Prime member.
Live freely, open ones mind and enjoy life, we only come around this way once, unless you believe in reincarnation then you can do it all again but as a snail or a bee or an actor in the next sex buster movie.......
Catch ya tomorrow........
What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
