    Fifty Shades of Grey Movie

    Yes, it has come. The wildly popular romance novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, has received a cast and formal announcement for a movie. Release date is slanted for 2014. Here's the story. http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/09/0...-of-grey-role/

    So this book gets a lot of criticism here, and I'm excited to see what John has to say on this. I'm sure this will make his day.

    Thoughts everyone?

    I'm sure the movie will garner success, although I'm pretty sure it will stink, just like Twilight.

    Quite frankly, I imagine it's just going to be Hollywood's latest trashy hit that pushes the boundaries in some form or another to attract attention. That's usually how these movies operate.

    I'm sure it'll set the record for R-rated movies but like "the da Vinci Code" there's probably so much hype going into it that people will be disappointed, not remembering that the book was far from a masterpiece.

    Avatar was terrible too, but it still did well because people like bright and pretty colors. This is going to have two considered to be attractive actors in it having sex. It doesn't matter if the book was high quality, it sold well, and like the book, the movie will have women taken everywhere.

    I take it you think Mutt will have a problem with what I said? Heh. I'm not trying to be aggressive towards anyone, that's just how I think this movie is going to turn out.

    I mostly agree with what you said. I find it hypocritical that women will complain if they catch their guy watching pornography and yet they'll demand he go to Fifty Shades of Grey with them. Or maybe she'll go alone. In either case there seems to be some line drawn between porn and "erotica" in some people's minds.

    I completely agree. I think because erotica is reading material it's considered to be on a higher, classier level. To me it's all the same, but you're right in that there seems to be some invisible line there.

    No. "Oboy, oboy, oboy!" applies to "This is going to have two considered to be attractive actors in it having sex." I meant it sarcastically.
