Fifty Shades of Grey: A Comedy

Can I poke my eyes out with the fireplace poker now?
Hi guys,

Welcome to yet another review. This post as you see from the title is about the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie, which opened on the big screen early this year. The movie is the cinematic adaptation of E.L. James' book with the same name.

Now, I will be the first to admit that I have not read E.L James' work. It is not that I don't want to. I just have been busy so I hadn't had much time to do much of anything.

So, last weekend I made the attempt to watch the film. Out of curiosity, I wanted to see how far the movie was going to go in terms of the subject matter of the novel. And sometimes, a film adaptation is better than the book. Unfortunately, I can't make that assessment. But I will say this, I definitely laughed myself to tears.

Why?

Okay. First of all, the fact that I only made it 45 minutes into the movie, was a tremendous feat. I couldn't deal with the dialogue.

With a couple of lines that screamed that it came out of an HBO show and the rest seemed like some ish that you would hear on the CW network. (The whole I can't be with you because I'm such a horrible person and you deserve to be with someone not like me - blah blah blah....vomit.)

Honestly, I can't imagine trying to make another attempt at watching this movie. I don't know if it's the actors or what but I really did not like this movie and I feel like if I were to see it again, it will seriously cause me to suffer a brain damage.

For real, it is pretty bad and I don't recommend this movie.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
