Fifty Shades of Grey / Fifty Shades Darker

Movie marathon night yesterday at the girlfriend's in that we watched both movies of the already famous series by EL James.

Handling about the relationship by a bachelor millionaire and a young student journalist, they walk a path often seen as dark... BDSM.

Now, first of all let me tell you, if you do like Mr Grey does in the movie (and, apparently a lot of people DID do it that way), prepare yourself to a trip to the emergency room instead of a steaming, spiced up night.

The books and the movies are responsible for bringing the whole world of BDSM out of the shady recessess and into the bedroom of "normal" people, as Rihanna sang: "whips and chains excite me".  Something followed by a lot of people.

Now, the first movie, Fifty Shades of Grey, revolves around the young Anastasia Steele getting charmed and seduced by billionaire playboy Christian Grey.  However, he has a masochist side in which he tends to dominate his girlfriend, and doesn`t accept refusal of open himself up towards her.  This in turn causes her to mistrust him more and more, and the relation is not to last... but she has made an impression on him, and he on her.

In the second movie, Christian seems changed and does his best to succesfully reconnect with Ana.  Indeed, it is she that asks him to "punish" her again, as she is enthralled by the world he lives in, especcially as he opens up more and more towards her.  Even when his past comes back to haunt him...

Now, all in all, they aren`t that bad at all.  Lots of critique came on the role of Mr Grey, that he wasn`t Adonis reincarnated, but actually I thought he was excellentely cast.  He has that certain charisma and radiance of power to lure in his victims instead of just pure good looks.

To be continued next Valentine's Day it seems.
