Went to the cinema last night to watch 50 shades. I liked it, more enjoyable than the books, but i think what made it more enjoyable was going with a girlfriend, and having a laugh, going in with the attitude of not taking it seriously, its not meant to be, i think, in my opinion.
Throughout the film there was laughter from the audience, and it was funny, sometimes slightly corny, it was difficult in places not to find it irritating but i think thats because i was watching from the perspective of being someone in the type of relationship im in.
I thought the sex and the kink scenes were well done, totally romanticised but then arent most films that way? and Jamie Dornan has a nice ass! well nice everything come to that lol
Its certainly not what i would call a mans film but yet there were quite a lot of men there, im guessing begrudgingly dragged to watch it by their girlfriends.
For me what made it was being with the girlfriend, she knows some of what me and Master engage in so we had a fair bit of banter about it, her comment of "if thats what you both get up to, i want in" made me laugh.
My biggest criticisms was when it ended, it was with anna leaving him after he had punished her, this annoyed me because of the way it was portrayed, she asked him to punish her, she wanted to know what to expect, so he did, and she didnt like it, went cold on him and left him.....and the film ended.
It came across badly and left me understanding why some people have had such an adverse reaction to the film, it didnt exactly portray D/s in a positive light, it was ok i thought until that moment.
However, its best to just accept it as it was intended, like many of the same books of its type...fantasy fiction.
Afterwards we went for some dinner, discussed the film, and her perspective was very different, she had no problem with it at all, she found it hot and interesting, so i do wander if perhaps i was more critical because i was comparing it to what i know, how we (as in Master and i) do things.
