Fifty Shades Darker (2017)

Today I want to tell you all about fifty shades darker. I am not going to do it like I normally do it. I am going to give spoilers in this one because I need to explain myself. But the long story, no spoilers… It is a fun film to watch. It’s not the best, it’s not for young children but it’s also not a porn movie. Okay, so that’s out of the way. Let’s get into the movie…


If you are not of age in your country and you are not allowed to see the movie in the cinemas. The movie will be sixteen plus or eighteen plus depending on the country. I suggest not reading this post. Although I do think it’s safe to read I don’t think it’s something you would like. If you want to see the movie and/or just read the post you can do that at your own ‘risk’. Enjoy xo

What is the movie about?
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her. I got this description here.  At first, I was laughing about it and it took me a moment but it is pretty accurate. So

The Trailer

What did I think?
My advice is to go watch the first film and then the second one after that come back and have a giggle with me. You can read it before but I don’t want to ruin the fun and you will leave this post with a bit of a bias. Before I start, I want to add quickly that the movie theatre where I saw this movie had horrendous service that day. I have never been sent up and down without the staff knowing where you can get whatever they sell. It hasn’t affected how I viewed this movie but I did want to mention it. I also wrote about Fifty Shades of Grey, which was heaps of fun, read about that here. So anyway on to the good stuff, the actual review.

First of all, the vibes between Christian and Anastasia were a whole lot better in this movie. You could tell that the actors were a whole lot more comfortable with each other. To go right in it wasn’t that sexual. Christian Grey is a very kinky, dominant guy in the books as well as the first movie. In the second movie however he doesn’t want to do that anymore, he is ‘over it’. That’s not really how it happens. In the books (he says it too in the movie) he does that stuff because he has mental issues. Now I haven’t seen him picking it up with a professional so I am assuming he didn’t go to a professional.

He said ‘I decided to not do that stuff anymore’ (I am paraphrasing) that’s not how it works. If you have mental problems and you do stuff like this to cope with those mental problems, you can’t just stop and be fine. I do not think it’s healthy to cope in such a way and if this was real life I would urge Christian to find a mental health professional that can help him. I think it’s damaging to put it in a movie in this way because he is fighting quite big battles in his brain and people who see that and have similar problems might think it’s that easy to get rid of them and it’s not. Right so Christian said goodbye to wanting to get kinky and he now in this movie wants a ‘normal’ relationship, or ‘vanilla’ or whatever you want to call it. In the last movie, they broke up because he was too kinky. Fast forward to this movie he is all ‘healed’ and now she wants all the kinky stuff ‘What?!’ It’s a complete 180.

It wasn’t that good, to be honest. I expected a whole lot more. It was nice but it wasn’t that ‘new’ It’s the same concept as every other romantic movie, to be honest. Anastasia is played very awkwardly which makes most scenes very awkward to watch. I was with a friend and the whole time we were waiting for the good stuff. It wasn’t there and I couldn’t help but feel a bit disappointed about it. Like I said Anastasia was very frustrating there is nothing wrong with wanting that stuff in your relationship or changing your mind however the last time she broke up with him because of the bum slapping. Suddenly you want that? I just don’t get it, what changed? You left him for that, your back one whole minute and you want that same thing you left him for. Why? Is she cooerist into it? Does she accept this treatment because she thinks she’ll be alone?

So this movie Anastasia transformed from this awkward girl into this sexy girl who knows how to dress. Where did you get the style from Ana? Where did you find it? How did you find it? In the beginning, she wears a dress, so pretty with a split on the back and she looks amazing so good but classy. She is a completely different girl from the first movie. It made the movie frustrating, but it was alright. Not the best not the worst. I can’t wait for the next one though. I need to know how it ends. Last thought the ending wasn’t there just because they wanted to make a new one, it was poorly done, to be honest.

Some other random thought
– At the end of the day, I didn’t like it all that much. It was good but I don’t fancy seeing it again.
– A golden tip from me is to don’t drag your boyfriend to this one, just take your girlfriends. I think it’s a whole lot more fun with your friends if I am honest.
– In a scene, she was wearing this very sexy, very hot lingerie set. She was putting a dress on. The next clip dress goes off and she is only wearing bottoms. That was such an inconsistency that shouldn’t happen in big films like this.
– Last but not least, I will watch Fifty Shades Freed and tell you all about it.


Lots of love,
