Maybe it's just me but I kinda feel like this applies to some other people too but when someone tells me not to do something I kinda want to do it. This reminds me of someone telling me not to read a certain series by an author I happen to like. Ironically I had already read the series but that itch to go to it arose. I did read this trilogy and I did start the first one again because I've been trapped inside a lot and well I won't get into my library woes.
I didn't find out until after I was reading it that this was Twilight fanfiction. I say mazel tov to E.L. for pulling this off. People are talking about it. She's laughing all the way to the bank and even though people are bitching about it that is causing people to be curious and they end up seeing it. I think less people would have bothered if there wasn't this hoopla about the rape culture thing. Sorry but reading a book or watching a show does not mean you're supporting what happens. Just because I enjoy watching Snapped doesn't mean I'm in the fan club for crazy bitches who kill.
So I saw it and I'm not telling you how because that's between me, myself, and I. The soundtrack was just awful. It is funny because out of curiosity I went to see what people were saying on Amazon and for the most part they were all four or five stars. Pay me and I'll sing the praises of that oh so horrible soundtrack. The music was just terrible. I can't stress how utterly horrible the music was. It was just bad. I can confidently say that this movie has the worst soundtrack in the history of all movies I've seen possibly of all movies that I've never seen too. It was just bad.
This really isn't the type of book I usually read. I only picked it up because everyone was talking about it so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It pretty much followed the books. Ana falling right as she entered Christian's office was funny. It was just beyond weird when he took a bite out of her toast. If you love Twilight you just might laugh your ass off finding all the Twilighty things sprinkled throughout the movie. Damn I wish I could pull something like this off but alas I can't even get people to come to this website. Ana wasn't as much of a doormat as she is in the books. She had a little bit of a backbone.
Yes there were cringe worthy moments but it wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be. I do find it hilarious that what's his name that played Christian is blaming his co-star for his performance. Maybe it's just me but the dude was like wood. He was able to speak and move but the dude was just blah on the screen. At least Dakota did a decent job with what she was given. I'm just glad I didn't have nightmares about seeing so much of her. He is better looking than the other guy that was going to play the role but he just doesn't seem to be a good actor or maybe it was just the role that was all wrong for him.
