FIFTY SHADES DARKER (MOVIE REVIEW)

fiftyshadesdarkerposterWell… I was always curious about the movie adaptation of this series. And yeah, we did watch the movie last weekend with hubby. And as expected, I am a little bit dismayed because I was expecting too much on the movie.

Of course, there were these scenes I am looking forward to see on the movie and they did not include (insert sigh icon). I was also expecting about the Christian-sub-mode-scene to be highlighted, but they didn’t; Mia and Ethan love affair didn’t show-up too; and where’s Dr. Flynn?; they should also emphasized the i-am-home-safely scene of Christian from Charlie Tango’s crash; and the beating-Jack-Hyde of Taylor and Christian, I wish I’d seen it too… Well, let’s leave it that way because it ALWAYS happens on book-to-movie stories… So here are some things I want to share:

THE ACTORS: Their selection of actors/actresses is really amazing. Elena is somewhat surprised me. She’s prettier on the movie as I imagined on the book. And also Jack is good-looking as compared to what I’ve seen on my mind. And seeing Jamie as Christian again is still a mind-blowing, he’s still good-looking. But I found him more attractive on this movie. And Ana also is still so attractive.

THE SOUNDTRACK: Before going to the cinema, I have already a copy of the “Not Afraid Anymore” and “The Scientist” and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”. And they are great. I’ll be having the rest as soon as it will be released.

THE SCENES: You know what I am referring to. It’s good thing they didn’t include everything from the book. And they made it shorter this time. But it was a bit disturbing still watching such scenes with strangers. I feel awkward honestly. But I decided to go with it, so I faced the consequence.

TAYLOR: I think missed him on the first movie. So while reading the Fifty Shades Freed a couple of weeks ago, I’ve decided to watch the Fifty Shades of Grey movie for me to visualize Taylor while reading. And his appearance on the movies is too little, I wish I’ve seen him more. I adore him. And I like Mrs. Jones in this part. She’s so pretty. 🙂

FINAL SAY: The movie-adaptation is quite nice. At least they included the marry-me-scene on the boat house. On movie adaptation, it would be fair giving 3/5. Cant wait to see how will they make scenes on R8-racing-with-the-non-sub of book 3. And Phoebe and Ted and the honeymoon. Well, be looking forward with those scenes.

Still not recommended for young viewers.

MOVIE#09: Fast and Furious 7

Im not a real fan of Paul Walker, but upon watching the movie I feel like, yeah emotional. I was crying at the ending but tryin not to show it. It’s a big impact that the production team didn’t killed Bryan (Paul Walker) on the movie. They sent him in such an emotional way. Those who were not touched on that scene maybe are hard-hearted… Sorry 🙂

I am not also a fan of the Fast and Furious movie series, but my hubby is. I went to cinema with him and couple of friends to watch the Furious 7. And it was a great experience. The movie is extremely action-packed. The team really did their best to make this movie unforgettable, not to just FAF fans but to all viewers. There are no scenes that aren’t exciting and intense. Really, it’s a 5 star rated movie. Its just sad that on next, Paul wont be there…

And because of him, im gonna watch the whole movie series as respect to Paul Walker. 😥

MOVIE#08: 50 SHADES OF GREY

I promised myself, I won’t be reading the book. And I stand to it. I was just curious about the story and so I watched it. I’ll be honest; I skipped the sex scenes for I know it’s so uncouth and shocking. And so far, I liked the story. For the haters, I’m not one of you anymore guys. I’ve been tellin that it’s not a good movie or story for the younger ones, I still won’t recommend it, never, because it’s really unsuitable. But for young adults and adults, it’s okay to watch it. Just skipped the sex scenes as I’ve done and you’ll be amazed how the story goes.

I know some haven’t watched it so I don’t want to state major scenes. I’ll be careful. Here are the reasons why I like the movie:

#1: THE STORY. Christian Grey is totally a normal person. In a way ‘love-at-first-sight’ had happened to him. He’s even caring and yes a lil bit of romantic and loving. And Anastasia is a typical American girl who is liberated, but not much. She was able to change Christian point of view in positive way. And that’s when the problem occurs. Christian doesn’t want to change himself. Continue reading
