‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Movie Review: If You’re Watching It For The Plot, You’re Doing It Wrong

Fifty Shades Darker isn’t exactly what you might call a good movie. The plot is laughable, the dialogue awkward, and the romance slightly disturbing. However, it’s not a bad movie either. What it is is fun. Yes, it’s so full of plot holes, you’ll have no idea whether or not it takes place over the course of four days or six months. But, what’s more surprising is that it doesn’t matter. Why wonder how long Ana and Christian have been trying their new, “vanilla” relationship before he asks her to move in with him when Christian’s helicopter falls out of the sky?

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Hello fellow movie/tv watchers!

I just wanted to check in and announce to the word that this blog still lives! Yes, I know it’s been quite a while since my last update, and, for this, I apologize.  What have I been doing with my time, you ask? Well, when free from work, I have been furiously powering through both films and television shows, including the first 12 seasons of Law & Order: SVU, the entire 2 series of Sherlock, and the cancelled-too-soon Firefly, and many many more.  

This new winter season,  I’ve become an instant fan of FOX’s new series, The Following, and am overjoyed by the long-overdue return of NBC’s Community–aka ‘Abed’s Happy Community College Show’.  More thoughts coming soon!  And, if you’re interested in getting more regular updates from me, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter!
