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.

“After Us”

I read a blog called Doobybrain every day and every so often they highlight Wong Fu Production short videos and they’ve always been so so good. “After Us” definitely hits close to home. It reminds me of my own breakups, but also the type of rebuilding after a breakup that we all go through and that I’ve even seen through my own friends and those closest to me. I thought this was very well done.

And after watching the actual video, watch the behind the scenes for how it was all done.
