Fifty Shades Freed…Movie Review

I saw the last Fifty movie last Thursday with a few of my Fifty Fan Buddies. We decided to do the marathon of all 3 movies that the local theater was offering for $20. There are a few things I want to clear up before I go into a review of this movie, so if you haven’t seen it yet, this is where you stop, okay.

  1. The quality of film got better with each movie
  2. Jamie Dornan got hotter with each movie
  3. The sex got SEXIER with each movie and…
  4. I loved Dakota Johnson in each movie, she was the absolute best choice for Ana


Okay, now that is out of the way…I didn’t want it to end. I always tend to get sad when things are over, whether it’s a book series or a movie series if it isn’t one and done I hate it! I didn’t want this to end and since it went by so quickly, I feel I didn’t have time to savor and enjoy that this was the last movie. Don’t get me wrong, that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a good movie because it absolutely was, however, things progressed quickly in the 1hr 45-50mins of movie. As you can tell from the trailer the movie opens with the wedding and it goes from 0 to 50 in a matter of minutes. By the time you are saying “Oh Shit!” when Jack is chasing Ana on the highway, Ana is already at the bank ready to pay him off. It was just too fast dangnabbit! There are some things that are missing but unless you are a superfan you won’t miss them. I am a lover of villains so I wanted Elena, I wanted crazy ass Leila and I wanted to see jealous Christian fight in Aspen. However, I am hoping (fingers crossed) all of these things are on the extended/unrated version of the DVD, blue-ray or streamed Amazon version of the movie.


So I get weekly FSOG updates. Yes, I am obsessed, so what! Most of you are here right along with me. I am counting down the days until the new movie releases and again, I know you guys are too. However, today I received some disturbing news in my inbox. FSOG may become a musical.

wedding-crashers-wtf yup, you heard me a mother-freakin-musical. Now, I know that Hamilton, with its hip-hop, opera, and classical tunes is the most popular thing on Broadway right now. But whose bright idea was this? Yes, Christian plays classical music when he is in the Red Room of Pain/Pleasure doing unmentionable(without getting your panties wet)thing to Ana, but do we really need to hear his character sing about it. Can you imagine the poor composer’s job trying to come up with music for this?


I don’t know about you guys but I am positive I will laugh my ass off if this comes to fruition. I truly hope that this wasn’t E.L’s idea. I mean, this is an awesome story and we do love it, but stop milking it for all that it’s worth. This is too damn far. I know we asked for Christian’s POV (thanks) but that was subpar at best. However, if this isn’t E.L’s idea but rather someone else’s I would like to ask them…


Just stop it! Damnit. STOP. Don’t ruin something we ladies (and maybe some men) love so much. Let us have our books and the movie but please don’t bust us over the head with a damn musical too. But this is just my opinion, what do you guys think? Would you go see Fifty Shades of Grey, the musical?
