So before I start let me tell you that I feel that the people criticizing the movie are people who haven’t read the books. There’s a lot of them saying that is abusive and promotes violence. I defend it because 1st, everything is consensual, 2nd you can see that Anastasia is a strong, powerful girl that is exploring her sexuality according what she wants.
On the other hand, many people were expecting a porn movie full of sex, but we all know that beyond the sex parts there is a love story, a very complicated but beautiful love story. I watched the movie twice.
I was super excited the 1st time I went to watch the movie, I ran from my work to the cinema, got in line and waited for another hour until they let us in. When they are letting us in they asked for our I.D (weird, 1st time that ever hapend to me). Ok so we got in, went to our seats, I was out o my body with excitement, then the movie start.
1st I’m going to start with the missing parts. In the interview scene, we start to see who funny Ana is, but for me it missed the comment about the painting ‘raising the ordinary to the extraordinary’ I don’t know if have to do with authors rights or something but for me that is key, because I feel is the 1st time Christian pays attention to Ana. I missed the scene after he gave her the first spanks when he comes back and stays with her, and he has the argument with Kate. And the other when they go to have dinner with his parents and he spank her and get all jealous because Kate’s comments about Jose and Ana going to Georgia. Another important aspect missing was the time when she goes to her internship interviews, cause that is key to the beginning of 2nd book. I mean I know that they couldn’t put every page on screen. But those are just few scenes
My 1st impression was Wow Annie singing ‘I put spell on you’ was magical and beautiful. I couldn’t help to say the dialogues while the movie went through, that happen when you read the books so many times (six times for me). I loved who funny Ana was. I felt butterflies like when I read the book when she call him from the bar. The scene when she is eating the toast and they are in the hotel after that night and he bites the toast was like Oh God! Sexy. And I felt butterflies when Christian arranged “the situation” with Ana, is very intimate and beautiful.
Dakota impressed me a lot! I liked her from the beginning but she is really talented and charismatic and made me laugh a lot. I think she ate Jamie performance a little bit, I miss the mood changes in him, the posesivines, the jealousy, the explosion and fury in some scenes. I loved the sex scenes, they were sexy, erotics, delicates, tasteful, and the music in each scene was perfect.
The most powerful scene for me was the last one in the playroom. Dakota performance was amazing. I almost cried like when I read the book. Dakota was intense and magnificent.
On my second time watching the movie…. I sat and really really enjoyed it! I was excited to see Dakota once again, I think she nailed it! Lol… And this time I could put more attention to Jamie. He is really Christian, dominating, supreme, calculator, intense. His eyes, Oh My God, his eyes are everything, he let us know all his feelings by looking at his eyes. And Dakota, well she is a goddess and really talented. I really loved the second time watching it.
loved the movie, I think Sam directing the movie, a really great job synchronizing the lighting in every scene, in every scenery, she was brilliant. Is a very delicate movie, very sexy, sensual and also very funny. Erika, Dana and Michael did an awesome job producing it, they took care of every detail. I loved the playroom, for me everything in it was perfect an as I imagined it. The music, every song was played in the right scene, it was intense and powerful.
I just can say a shouty THANK YOU in capitals letters, thank you for giving us this movie!
YOU. ARE. MORE!
