Fifty Shades of Grey: Yeah, We Watched It

Oh yes, you better believe that we caught this movie on opening weekend. Having never read the books and being very curious about the advertisements I’ve been seeing for the film, I just had to see it. So here are my thoughts:

  • The movie didn’t flow as well as I would’ve liked. Everything felt really choppy, but I hear it’s not like this in the books.
  • They made Seattle look gooooooooooood.
  • This is not a movie that you want to take your kids to. I was appalled to see children sitting a couple rows in front of me.
  • Is it just me or did it feel like Jamie and Dakota had absolutely no chemistry together onscreen. I mean it didn’t seem very belivable to me?
  • It’s definitely not as racy as people made it out to me.
  • Why is this version offered in imax?
  • What is it like to see the NC-17 version of this film?
  • The best part of this movie? The soundtrack. Gimme that Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd anyday.

It’s not a masterpiece by any means, but I’m glad I saw it. We got something out of our systems by doing so.

Lip Sync Battle with Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart and Jimmy Fallon

It’s the Monday after the Super Bowl so HOBviously everything is Super Bowl themed today. The only thing is…we haven’t talked about the game because well, we all know what happened so no need to dwell. Will Ferrell is basically killing this.

I can’t get enough of this. To celebrate the Seahawks win yesterday, Michael Bennett hijjacked a police officer’s bicycle and took a ride around the field on it. This is one happy guy.

Golden Globes 2015 Highlights

I may have missed the awards show, but I did get to catch Gina Rodriguez winning her Golden Globe for Jane the Virgin and it was amazing! I had heard that her speech was one of the best and lucky for me, it just happened to be the one I caught before I left. I also heard that George Clooney gave a great speech as well which I caught yesterday. Since they were the two that stood out to me the most, I thought that it would make sense to share them again with you all here just in case you missed it! Also, if you haven’t had a chance to watch Jane the Virgin yet, you should! CW made a great decision in picking that series up.

Golden Globes 2015 Menu

I can’t believe how much I love and enjoy watching the E! Red Carpet. I have so many favorite looks already and I’m looking forward to sharing all of that tomorrow! However, in the meantime – award show season is always so fascinating to me. I like knowing about the menu, the goodie bags, the behind the scenes stuff we never get to see on live televsion and that’s why we make separate posts for all of that stuff too.

Here’s what the attendees are eating tonight:

Tiffany & Co. Support Same-Sex Marriage w/ New Ad

Tiffany’s is coming out strong in support for same-sex marriage with their newly released advertisement. This is the first time for Tiffany & Co. to ever feature a same sex couple in one of their ad campaigns and it is speaking volumes with the community.

The new campaign, shot by fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, showcases seven scenes of couples at different stages of their relationships, with a few twists.

One scene features a same-sex couple about to commit to marriage. The pair, shown sitting on a stoop in New York City, are a real couple, not models, according to a Tiffany spokesperson. Another photo shows a couple getting married with their child at their side.

The photos are a celebration of modern love, creating scenes that show love comes in a variety of forms, spokeswoman Linda Buckley said.

“Nowadays, the road to marriage is no longer linear and true love can happen more than once with love stories coming in a variety of forms,” spokeswoman Linda Buckley said.

I have yet to see the other ads that are part of this campaign, but this one is definitely getting the most buzz around the internet currently!
