As far as the 50 Shades series goes...many of my friends aren't as excited about it as I am (This is not unusual) Those in the mental health industry didn't appreciate these books doing so well. Understanding what their lives deal with, what they see every day happening-this makes sense.
My literary and English major friends-well they just thought the books were "dumb," which, you know..we all get to decide what stimulates us and what doesn't.
Gosh, even the more sexually open communities felt this portrayed their world inaccurately.
Many call it "Mom Porn," and that one makes me laugh. A lot actually and BRAVO to any mother who had a little fun in her marriage or got her groove back due to reading the books!
What I heard a lot was "That's not true eroticism" I'm like Okay well, I just loved it. Regardless of anyone's opinion and that is not unusual either.
Personally, I adored the series and I always love it when a woman sits down-writes, weaves in her own magic and the world applauds her regardless of what anyone has to say. I felt the same way about the Twilight series.
In addition to my commitment to cheer other women on who may not think or be exactly like I am, there is also how..... I love writing so much and should any one of my books ever make it to the place where they are so popular because they align with millions and I'm bashed and smashed by all of those above communities-I am seriously, whole-heartedly okay with that!
It seems to me there is an audience for everyone and it also seems to me, having a passion for writing-it is in good form to stay true to our own passions, help others and perhaps cheer people on for their success rather than just be another critic trying to stop the world from loving whatever they love.
Am I spending all of my time critiquing other creative people or am I spending my time inside of my own creations? I get a lot of interesting feedback on the daily and I just keep going because well, that's just me being me...
Anyway, I thought the second movie was even better than the first one and I suspect the next movie will be very good indeed. The chemistry between these two young beautiful humans as their love story evolved. Yummy~~~~ And I did observe couples sitting around me inching closer and closer to one another and who knows what they were doing..>I don't even care.... I always love to see that heat between couples. PDA, is good stuff as far as I'm concerned.
One of the gals shared, at first she didn't like the actor who played Christian because he didn't match her visual from the book -however, now she thinks he's beyond perfect and she can't imagine anyone else taking his place.
I like hearing that kind of visual evolution. You know, when we expand our vision, let go of what we thought something (or someone) should look like. When we allow things to move as they are moving and enjoy what is in front of us-as it is. I do recall when he was selected a lot of women felt that way. That he wasn't the visual in their experience. As they say "You can't please everyone, you're not pizza!" haha!
I loved the sex scenes they selected too. I kept hearing myself say "Yes. I love this!"
Essentially Christian's Vulnerability is something that evolved. He's humble and a lot more clear. Willing to let go of his darker parts to have what he truly desires. And there I went again "Yes, I love this!" Ana responds to him with both strength and authenticity yet communicates reverently. This is something my ears are now programmed to spot. Again, I heard myself say "Yes, I love this!"
Since I love to feel good, before, during and after any experience-I give this movie 5 hearts from my 5 heart system. Lol. Not that it's supposed to mean anything to anyone else but it means something to me. I was very excited to see it, I loved every scene and I walked away feeling so very good!
