Fifty Shades of Grey...

Let me start off saying that I've read all three books in the series and I loved them! To be honest, I didn't think that I would find an erotic novel entertaining due to my own idea of WHO I envisioned exotic novel readers to be but I read that damn book in like a week! I even tried to hide it from my family out of shame.  LOL  Then I had a co-worker who had the other 2 remaining books and she sent them to me inter-office and I read those books too... QUICK! I wasn't really impressed with the second but the last book was really good. I'm not going to spoil it for you if you haven't read them.

Fast forward to present day and they're releasing a movie on Valentine's Day (ohhhh) and I must say I will not be in line to watch this. To be honest, it will ruin my own visualization of who I envision the characters to be in my head and how the hell are they going to play out those scenes without it being a full blown porn? Really??? That book was salacious to say the least and really detailed.  I don't think that the movie will do the book justice. Then there's the question of do I want to commit to seeing all 3 movies because I know they plan to draw it out from the whole trilogy angle.

Adaptions of books to movies don't always work well especially if it's an erotic novel. I saw the movie Addicted by Zane and I wasn't impressed at all! Now I must admit that I didn't read the book first but still I was expecting more. I brought the book prior to going to the theater but I was only into the books first few chapters when I actually saw the movie and after seeing it, I didn't complete the book because I had no interest. I didn't like the movie.

There was another movie based off of a book (not an erotic because I do enjoy other genres lol) that I actually did enjoy  and that was Gone Girl.  So will you be watching the movie this February 14th? Here's the trailer for those who haven't seen it. If you go out to see this in the theaters, make sure you share your thoughts on it with the rest of us.
