Tuesday, March 24, 2015

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!!

  1. I also saw the uncut version, and I have to admit, she kinda looked a tad too thin.. but the spanking and the whips and cuffs kinda made me feel turned on. or maybe it was just my experimental side showing? nonetheless I appreciated the movie more when it was not blurry and such. parang indie film lang, mas may dating and it tells more to the story kapag walang cuts and blurs :)

    1. Hi Nicole! I appreciate your honesty. I've been reading posts on it saying it was bad and etc. Well, it's *entertainment*! Hahaha.. When I was told that there were blurs and cuts - I was sure that I wanted to wait for the uncut version. I'm sure the difference was huge!

      I am now excited for the DVD release kasi for sure there will be *deleted scenes* diba? And the cast interview - I'm very interested in those. Hahaha!! I remember watching The Godfather with commentary and it was so different - made me look at the movie differently!!

      But overall, I enjoyed the movie. I watched it again but fast forwarded the steamy scenes. Hahaha!! Hindi ko matiis pumikit - my Panget asks me nga why I even close my eyes - well, hindi ako sanay seeing it very graphic! Hahaha..

      Thanks for commenting and dropping by!

      Love, Didi
