  • Re: Talk about anything

    There you go and apparently there's going to be two more movies because there was three books. I imagine by the time the third movie comes out there won't be a huge audience, just the book readers. The movies aren't enough to keep anyone else interested.

      Well according to Caro (my gf) the first book wasn't very "hardcore" but the next two were, so maybe the movies will follow suit?

        But the comments about the books is that the author knew nothing about BDSM and just wrote whatever...........and BDSM community is very upset about how it is portrayed. Basically they are saying that the whole story is domestic violence...dressed up with in love story.

          Josh, the movie seemed to be the love-story centred plus the sex added on afterwards. I'd imagine that's what they'd be going for when making the trilogy for theatres (despite being 18+).

          Jasmine, that's hilarious. I don't get how anyone could be upset over that...it's not like it's written in black and white. There's no right or wrong way to do it. With that being said, I heard last night that the books were originally short-stories of fan fiction about the Twilight characters. The author later expanded it and gave the characters their own identity.

            I didn't read the books so I'm totally out of the loop on this. Only saying the diffrent types of comments I read or heard. Most people I know who read the books, enjoyed them. But I also read somewhere that some victims of domestic violence compared this to the life they had to get away from. "Stalker, jalousie, abuse (both physical & psychological)..etc.

            So I guess its up to each and everyone to make their own opinion about all this. And mine is I have none..didn't read and won't see the movie. :) ...but I do enjoy reading all the comments about the movie, considering people had high expectations about it.

              Oh, absolutely. I think to have high expectations of this movie...you had to be a little delusional.

                Hey Alfie, here is another article about this I thought I would share with you:


                Today, the the day before Valentines Day, sees the film adaptation of the popular 'erotic fiction' book 'Fifty Shades of Grey' released in cinema's UK wide.

                Both the book and the film have been criticised by anti-violence against women campaigners for romanticising and eroticing an abusive relationship. In the book and film a powerful multimillionare called Christian Grey starts sexual relationship with a 21 year old student called Anastasia Steele. The story is supposed to be about a BDSM relationship where Christian dominates a submissive Anastasia. However unlike real BDSM, which is all about sexual pleasure within a consensual relationship, there is no use of safe words and Christian ignores his partners pleas to stop. In real life this would be rape!

                In addition Christian is shown be controlling of even non-sexual elements of the relationship; with him using emotional abuse, stalking and intimidation to get what he wants.

                What is concerning is that 'Fifty Shades' largely female fanbase don't see how Christian is an abusive character and therefore may not clearly spot the signs of abuse if they or a friend ever became part of an abusive relationship.

                Many people have decided to boycott this film and donate the cost of a cinema ticket to domestic abuse charities instead.

                ...

                Its a little odd how so many women are all gaga over this trilogy..and yet, its sounds like a flop in so many ways. Badly written to abusive relationship comments... its mind boggling a little..but I'm still not curious enough to go see the movie. If I want to see something similar to this, I'll watch real porn lolll and get it over with.

                        • I fell through my glass coffee table last night and cut my finger pretty bad. Had to get stitches, was my first time ever needed them. I was lucky considering how much worse I could have easily been injured.
