fifty shades of grey movie posterYes, I know I’m a few months behind, but this past weekend I finally had a chance to watch the Fifty Shades of Grey movie!

This series is one that I really enjoyed. Though it’s hard for me to identify on an individual level with some of the themes that James talks about in the trilogy, and especially some of the darker sexual themes, it was powerful to me because I had a friend who struggled with many of those issues, and I felt the Fifty Shades books summed up her experience in a very vivid way.

The movie didn’t do quite the same job as I’d hoped though. Leave it to Hollywood to take a good book and forget to include many of the elements that made it so great! Instead, on screen this just turned into an almost goth-love story with self-deprecation mixed in.

I felt like they missed many of the finer elements of the characters that made the books so interesting, and instead just focused on creating controversial sex scenes.

That’s life in Hollywood I guess. I’m hoping that the other two movies that are scheduled to come out this year and next year do a better job than the first! Otherwise, the entire series might get dragged down and become nothing more than a pop-lit craze, rather than the modern classic it deserves to be.

If you haven’t had a chance to read the books yet, I strongly recommend you read all three of the original novels before watching even the first film. They’re so much better, and you’ll have an existing understanding of what’s really going on, and can hopefully understand the characters of the film that much better.

If you haven’t found them yet, you can download the Fifty Shades of Grey audiobook to listen to the original EL James novel, or you can download the trilogy in pdf form here.

If you have read the books but haven’t seen the movie, it’s still worth your time. Here’s a short preview of what you can expect:
