Believing they have left behind shadowy figures from their past, newlyweds Christian and Ana fully embrace an inextricable connection and shared life of luxury. But just as she steps into her role as Mrs. Grey and he relaxes into an unfamiliar stability, new threats could jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins

I know I said I was going to write book vs movie post but instead I decided to write my first movie review. I was supposed to see this movie with my best friend but we’re broke students, so instead I was waiting for the film to be sold in blu-ray and after that I had to wait it to get cheaper before I finally got a chance to watch it.

Unlike most people I actually like these movies even though Ana could have been cast better. I’m not as disappointed how Kate was cast as I was when I saw the first movie. I have nothing against Eloise Mumford (who plays Kate) but I always thought she’d have looked prettier.

I love the plot but while I love reading about sex scenes, they make me uncomfortable in movies. I don’t know what it is about them– maybe because it makes me feel like a stalker or something. It could also be because I still live at home and my parents could walk in my room any minute and see what I’m watching.

I enjoyed some changes the made into plot from how it was in the books. I thought it was funny when that kid gave Christian a rock and said it was a gift and Christian just states that it’s a rock. There were also some changes I didn’t enjoy, like that message Christian and Ana got. I thought it was nice touch when E.L James added that nickname in the book. I don’t want to reveal more in case you want to see the movie and haven’t yet.

Any feedback for my first movie review? Have you seen Fifty Shades movies? What thoughts do you have about them?
