Update: 03/25/2015 – and I was just talking about the uncut version. The official DVD will be released in May 2015 – Digital copies on May 1 and BluRay ones on May 8!! Sneak peak? Scroll to the end of the post!! ——- So last weekend, I finally got a copy of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey. Nope, not a blurry copy. It was a clear copy – when you view it on the laptop. Hooked it up on the TV and it was okay – not the HD copy that I’m used to. There were was no blurring on the *sensitive* parts of the movie. Well, it was an *uncut* copy, so….
Was it just me? But, I found the movie rushed. But I guess 2 hours wasn’t really enough to cover the whole book. I felt bad for the movie though, because it could have been much more! I wish though that there was more of the *talking* than the sex. But that’s just me. Hahaha!! Am I KJ? I guess so. The book was filled with dialogue exchange that made me *kilig*. Of course, you know how real men are – they’re not very talkative or expressive of their feelings, so the book was a bit out there making us women swoon because Christian Grey emails and texts – lengthily. Hahaha!! Most people who saw the movie found that there was no chemistry between the actors who played Christian and Anastasia – but I beg to differ. I think they were perfect for the role and made the characters come alive. My Panget commented that Dakota was not very pretty, well she is pretty – but she looked lost in some scenes, and that she looked weird at times. I told Panget that, that was the character of Anastasia, she’s supposed to be awkward – look it at times and feel it at times. But you’ll see in the movie how her character developed. She became prettier and desirable. As for Jamie Dornan – I remember him from Once Upon A time – all scruffy looking with his beard – and in the movie, he was clean shaven. There were some scenes that you can see the hair growth – it was nice. He looked really good. I think he was skinny in Once Upon a Time – here he was buffed. Okay, I’ll admit – he looked hot. There I said it! Hahaha.. I liked seeing them on screen together – bagay. Everyone assumed that the movie was going to be very steamy. And it was (since I saw the uncut version) – it was all about their sexual relationship – well the book was also like that. But as I said – I would have preferred more dialogue – more of the exchange more of the *I miss that smart mouth* but instead it was very visual, but I guess – since it’s the movie – everything needs to be graphic. To be honest, I found their sex scenes to be exaggerated. Be honest! Hahaha – it was to turn us all on. But I had to wince at times especially scenes in the playroom. My Panget saw the ice cube part and declared *Nakita ko na yan! Merong ganyan sa 9-1/2 weeks!* It made me think – what was 9-1/2 weeks? I had to google it. Well, it was a steamy movie that was released in 1986 – and it was of the same nature – very sexual. For short – it was the Fifty Shades of Grey during his time. Hahahaha!! So for him, what he was seeing wasn’t very new, I mean the idea wasn’t very new. Whenever Anastasia was in the playroom – I felt sorry for her! I felt sorry for Dakota Johnson because she had to be spanked, whipped and tied! I felt sorry for her. After seeing those scenes, I knew why Melanie Griffith wasn’t interested to see the movie – who would want to see their daughter that way. I found Dakota too thin too. I wish though that her boobs were bigger – to which my Panget countered *Di bale, sexy naman!* Men. Hahaha!! I admire though, that she was very cool, collected and brave to have stripped down for the cameras – for Jamie Dornan! Sooooo, what were the parts that I liked? Here they are, in no particular order: – The Christia Grey closet! I looks like a store! Hahaha… So organized!!! BUT but but, parang wala namang may ganyang ka-orgnanized na closet! hahaha… – The Plum dress – it was very pretty! I wish she wore that dress instead of the pink haltered one. Hahaha!! She looked so sophisticated that I wanted to see more of her wearing that dress. (In the book I think she wore it a couple of times!) Her whole look was fantastic and the heels! She looked perfect! (I realized that when you wear heels – iba ang dating eh..) – The Charlie Tango scene. OMG – I told my Panget – who wouldn’t fall for a guy who drives a helicopter and flies you to his place?? The song choice too was a winner too! I didn’t know what the song was and what the effect was – but whoever picked that particular song to match the scene – you deserve a double thumbs up! There was this expression on his face when Mr. Grey was asked by Ana *You’re flying this?* – his expression was WINNER!! Then when he was talking to the tower – his tongue makes this twirl – OMG, hoooottttt.. This particular scene made me smile from ear to ear. – The day after the vomit scene. When Christian enters the suite all sweaty and then he takes his shirt off. Winner. I asked my Panget why guys take off their shirts that way – he said *It’s the easiest way!* – Okay. Hahaha!! And before he takes off his shirt, he hands Anastasia some bread and then before that when Anastasia asks where he slept – and he pointed where. The expression on his face. – *Because I’m fifty shades of fucked up* scene. Ahhhh, I loved that so much! I can’t explain it but I was so kilig with that scene and that particular line. Hahaha!! (hence the picture above) – *Christian, I can’t walk that fast in these heels!* and then Christian carries her across his shoulder and spanks her. It was cute – I found it really funny. Weird ba? – Opening scene of Christian Grey on a run with a hoodie. Hahaha!! Very mysterious! Hihi.. I found some scenes a bit lost or bitin – especially when Anastasia was trying to be funny and cute. It lacked building up? I don’t know. I was hoping that Jamie Dornan would dance, but I guess – God is fair, he looks good but in the dancing department – nah.. Obviously – the movie was *bitin* – the same as the book. Hahahaha!! So I’m assuming the sequel will be released on Valentines day next year. Hahahahaha!! Also, I found all of the secondary characters to be flat. Sayang though. Hahaha!! Elliot looked too rugged and dirty in my opinion. Mia was only on screen for like 5minutes? Hahaha!! I adore Marcia Gay Harden – and would have wished she had more scenes with Christian Grey and Anastasia. Taylor – he was the dakilang extra! Panget would look at me from time to time while watching the movie. He asked me why I was smiling. I told him *Kilig eh!* Hahaha.. Here is the *teaser* of the DVD release.
Confession – when I’m bored, I watch the movie – again and again. Hahahaha!!
