Fifty Shades Darker

Review: Fifty Shades Darker

Yeah, none of us here at Flixist actually saw it (so far, and Nick, I'm looking at you) ...

Fifty Shades Darker
Director: James Foley
Release Date: February 10, 2017
Rating: R 

So, I'm going to pretend I did! Wait. This is too difficult. I just can't.

The truth is that I was forbidden to see Fifty Shades Darker with my lady friend. She refused to allow me to come, for fear that my snickering would mar the otherwise beautiful experience. I do snicker both obnoxiously and with volume--I can hardly blame her. In point of fact, I wouldn't dare blame her. I'm sure I was done a favor.

Once upon a time, long long ago, in this very same galaxy, I ridiculed Twilight (both book and movie) without remorse. However, I'd never read the book or seen the movie, and thought perhaps, I was a hypocrite. This premise established, I read Twilight, at approximately 3 times the speed (average reading velocity) of Atlas Shrugged (which I was reading at the same time).

If anything, I'd been being generous in my earlier critiques. It was worse than expected. I won't make the same mistake  here. My relentless mockery of Fifty Shades and all its friends will continue, unfounded, without research, for all eternity, and my conscience shall remain clear.

E.L. James wants control over next Fifty Shades screenplay

Nope. Not doing it. No joke about "control." I'm taking the high road.
