Yesterday I went to Fifty Shades Darker with my best friend. Since it’s such a popular movie I thought it might be fun to share some of my experiences with you guys which might help you decide whether or not you want to go watch it too! I haven’t read any of the books and I haven’t seen part one yet so I’m definitely not an expert, but I hope it’s still fun for you to read. Anyways, if you want to find out whether or not Fifty Shades Darker is worthy of your time, make sure you continue reading!
First of all I have to say I had quite low expectations. I had such low expectations because everyone always says it’s such a ‘sexual’ film and when I watched like a minute or so of Fifty Shades Of Grey I felt like it was quite mild compared to what everyone was saying. I also thought it would be a movie purely about sex without a storyline or anything like that. However, I ended up liking the movie more than I expected.
What I like about the movie is that, even though it is rather sexual, it does have a great storyline. It’s actually quite a unique storyline to be honest.. I didn’t expect that to be the case, so finding out it does actually have a great story to it made the movie way more interesting for me personally.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the movie: it’s a movie about a guy who has a unique set of sexual preferences. He meets a women whom he falls in love with who can’t always appreciate the way he is in bed. In this movie he realises he’s actually in love with her and tries to change his ways so they can be together. Aside from that there’s also a sub-storyline which is about his exes trying to break Anastasia and Christian up.
Another thing I really like about the movie is that it’s understandable even for those who are completely new to the Fifty Shades series. Like I said I haven’t read any of the books or watched the first film, but even I could understand what the movie was about. The important parts of the story are made clear throughout the film so you’re not sitting there questioning what on earth is going on.
Something else I think is great about this film is that it isn’t very predictable. There was one specific moment I think no one in the theatre expected (which was quite a shocking yet funny moment) and I think that’s very unique. I think things like that make the movie more interested. I also think that such things show how well-made this movie is.
Lastly I like that the movie contained some humorous parts. I expected it to be quite tedious and heavy and therefore slightly boring but because of these small humorous elements the movie became a bit more light-weight (if that makes any sense) and also a bit more interesting and fun to watch.
I do like that even though it did contain some humour, it wasn’t a comedy-like movie at all. The humorous elements weren’t like your typical funny moments in a movie. They were small and simple, yet fun. I think that’s very well done!
Overall I ended up really liking the movie Fifty Shades Darker and I’m glad my best friend took me there. If you haven’t seen it yet I highly recommend watching it, even if you haven’t seen or read anything about Fifty Shades in your life. It’s for sure a movie that is worthy of your time!
