My Review on “Fifty Shades of Grey”

holding-fifty-shades-of-grey

50 Shades of Grey is a love story.  But it goes beyond that. It is a story about two characters with different sexual desires.  A story of a man who got introduced into a sexual habit he became a victim of. A story of a woman who falls in love and tries to come to terms with her man’s sexuality. 50 Shades is about desire, erotic and the will to love or not to love. It is about  daring to embrace the other and leaving your comfort zone. A roller coaster of emotions, decisions, compromises and how to find a common ground, with both characters not completely willing to give in to the other. The movie is funny and witty, yes the first scene starts with a laugh and you laugh your way through.

I do not see any form of abuse on the female protagonist in 50 Shades nor understand why people call it an anti-feminist movie.  From the beginning both the protagonist know exactly what they were getting into, and agreed to it. All the women mentioned were neither lied to nor forced into DSMS.

I now intend to read all the books and yes I will definitely watch the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey!

About The Last Immigrant

The Last Immigrant is about writing - writing all about journeys, passion, perception(s). It is about leaving home and travelling beyond, over the seas and above the horizons; of experiences in the foreign and the unknown. Of my view, her view, their view, our views. An enthusiast reader of books, fiction and non-fiction alike, books and stories have been an integral part of my life from the time I was about 8 years old. My passion for literature accompanied me all my life through school and university. With me, you can discuss books from all eras and genres, be it the classics, post-colonial, Victorian, Comedy, Tragedy, Contemporary etc. I don’t limit myself in the world of books. My preferences are the Novel and Short story, but bring on Drama or poetry and I will give it a go. I will be sharing a lot about books in this blog. Books I have read, my take on them, recommendations from me, friends etc. You can follow me on Book Read to see what I am currently reading. I sometimes write short stories and poetry. I will be sharing some of my stories on this blog. Being a mom of 2 teenagers, it is difficult to delve full time into writing; but I try as best as I can to create time for this alongside juggling family and work life. Hope you enjoy the stories. Sports, oh boy, don’t I love sports. I am an avid lover of tennis, football and Formula 1. My favourite tennis players happen to be Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal. I will go sleepless nights singing praises for my beloved FC Bayern München. In car racing, no one drives a car like Lewis Hamilton. You will be getting my take on these great athletes and many others on these pages. Travelling happen to be one of my hobbies as well. I will try and share with you some of the interesting places I go to with a literary twist to it. All in all, you will be getting just about anything that ticks Mbole. I hope you enjoy the blog and please leave comments and notes. Have a pleasant ride in The Last Immigrant’s world and thoughts. Thank you for passing by. Mbole D Nnane The Last Immigrant.

    • True Lion, my abuse is concerning the women bc most people are singing that the women are abused. I don’t see it. I already stated on my commentary to you that the only abuse I see is that of Mr Grey when he was 15 years old.

  2. Hmmmm.. Would you recommend it as an entertaining movie for me to watch??
    Or is the hype just about the whole BDSM?
    Is there a nice story??

    • John, there certainly is a nice story, depending on how you see it. Some people find it lame, others great. I found it intriguing and wanted to see the end. I was just not too convinced of the acting, esp the male protagonist 🙂

  3. I have heard about this book and now the film but I have never read the book nor watch the film. One thing I have gathered following news streams of this recently is that it is a very controversial book and film and it is a typical example of one man’s meat being another’s poison. Some talk of it being a story of abuse and suppression while some consider it a love story. I can’t say much since I am just as ignorant about it all but one thing is sure this controversy will probably propelthis authour to the best seller and box office lists because it seems our societies’ curious minds now love controversy.

  6. Interesting review, Mbole. I neither read the book nor watch the movie but definitely curious due to all the hype. One thing is certain, a subject like this will always split opinions.

  7. I have no interest whatsoever to watch the movie. Not even tempted lol.

    Read Book 1 of the trilogy (50 Shades of Grey) years ago when it first came out. Didn’t see the brouhaha then and still don’t see it now. A friend offered me Book 2 as a gift and 1 year later it’s still sitting in my kindle unread. Still don’t get the hype *shrugs*

    I’d rate the book 3 Stars. Movie, no idea since I haven’t watched and won’t be watching, except maybe fast-forward 1 year and it’s shown on TV on a night I have nothing else to do hehehe.

    Glad you liked it though.

  10. Great and succinct effort, Delphine. It might have been interesting to add a few words about the different backgrounds of the protagonists. Clearly, the trilogy of ’50 Shades’ has already caused a considerable hype over the past 4 years, but the erotic features reaching deep into the darker realm of BDSM and tagged to an intricate combination of private, academic and corporate worlds that account for specific mindsets and motifs in this curiously shaded (or jaded) story of strained human relations and sexual desires merit further exploration.
