Fifty Shades Darker (Film)

So I’m not sure how many of my followers are interested in this kind of thing, but today’s post is about Fifty Shades Darker which I went to see on Friday night. Like I said, I don’t know how many of my followers are interested in reading about it, but I thought I’d write about it anyway! 🙂 
Now I know lots of people are quite anti the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy, but whenever I question them about whether they’ve read the book, or even the second and third books they almost always say no. And why does this annoy me? Because in the second and third books it becomes more like a normal love story and they are nowhere near as weird as you could say the first book is. Lots of people just seem unwilling to get over the strangeness of the first book to see the rest of the story.

Before going to the cinema this week I re-read “Fifty Shades Darker” so I could remember what happened in the book, because they all blur into one and I couldn’t remember all of what happened in the second book! 

I think because I re-read the book it perhaps made me a little bit disappointed and more aware of what had been missed out of the film. I’m not saying the film was bad, in fact it was great and I loved it, but I was disappointed that key characters such as Dr Flynn and Ethan (Kate’s brother) had been written out of the film. Ok so maybe Ethan isn’t such a main character, but Dr Flynn is! There were also other things that had been changed in terms of the order things happen. 

I really enjoyed the film though and I think if you’re being really picky and a true fan you might be a bit disappointed with the changes that have been made but they are pretty big books and to fit it all in to two hours sadly there does have to be some sacrifice. 

If you go and see it though it is worth sitting around through the credits as there is a little sneak peak of “Fifty Shades Freed” coming February 2018!

But all in all it was a great film and I enjoyed it and I really enjoy the way that the relationship between Ana and Christian develops through the second and third book. Yes Christian is protective of Ana but it’s only because he loves her so much but he does learn to relax a little through the story. 

Definitely a film to go and see if you’re into romance films 🙂 Have you been to see Fifty Shades Darker? If so what did you think? Or do you plan to go and see it?


Pitch Perfect 2


If you’re like me and absolutely love the first Pitch Perfect you will not be disappointed by its sequel!

Pitch Perfect 2 follows the lives of the Bellas after a disastrous performance in front of Obama sees them forbidden from entering any other a cappella competitions other than the world championships, as well as stopping them from recruiting any new members. But that doesn’t stop newbie Emily Junk from seeking them out, and with the help of her “legacy” status (her mother was a Bella), she gets accepted into the Bellas.

Pitch Perfect 2 sees Becca doing an internship at a music production company, leading her to somewhat neglect the Bellas. We are also introduced to the German a cappella champions “Das Sound Machine”, seeing them “fighting” against the Bellas for the title of world a cappella champions. Bumper also returns to Barden in an attempt to rejoin the Treblemakers (now he works as a security guard for Barden), and in doing so he ends up falling for Fat Amy.

We also see more of Benji, who falls in love with newbie Bella Emily. :O

Pitch Perfect 2 is a great film, full of laughs, and is a sequel that more than lives up to its predecessor Pitch Perfect. Pitch Perfect 2 is full of great songs, some of which are probably better than those from the first film!

If you loved Pitch Perfect you are bound to love Pitch Perfect 2!
