If we try and start some kind of movement to convince people not to see this it will just make them want to see it more. What can we hope to do?

Ignore it and hope it goes away, or hope our girlfriends will go see this and come home all kinds of randy.

Why do women love books so much where the female protagonist is awkward and insecure and stuck in an abusive relationship?

Explain that pornography is cheap (as in free) and plentiful on the internet. You don't have to wrap a bad story around attractive people having sex.

What's wrong with wanting to see a movie based on an extremely popular book?

For some reason every time I see 'Charlie Hunnam' I think 'Charlie Day.' That would make a much more interesting movie.

Dammit, now I'll have to watch this horrible thing.  He better be naked and/or fighting for 90% of the film.

If the movie does well it will promote even more horrible entertainment and bad roles for females.

Well, a lot of women seem to think this is a good story, I guess you should inform them as to how poor their taste in entertainment is, as you obviously know so much better than they do.

I'm just glad Cillian Murphy didn't agree to be apart of garbage. And I'm curious to know how they're gonna make a decent plot out of these books, but I'll find out once it hits the internet illegally.

You forgot to tell me I had to be at the gym in 26 minutes.

Yes, I have an opinion. People can have an opinion. Trying to paint me as someone who is looking down on others in an attempt to take away from my original point is a sad attempt at an attack.

Since you missed the point I will tell it again.

This book is a bad book because it gives people a bad representation of both a BDSM relationship and females in general.

This books is a bad book because the writing is bad. I am not saying I am a great, good, or decent writer. I am a good enough reader to notice bad pacing, bad characters, and poor choice in words. This second point is not as important as the first and could easily be looked over if the first point wasn't so bad.

It's also another example of a book that glorifies abusive relationships, with hints of the projection main character having an eating disorder, not to mention the truly massive amount of woman-shaming going on from said character.

This is probably going to sound a bit hyperbolic/extreme - and I'm probably reaching - but I wonder if there's some sort of link between these books and domestic violence figures...

Yup.  starting there, but also including the couple he'd done in SoA as well.

It's one thing when it's a classic, or at least a cult classic. This is nothing more than flavor of the monthism. And the book's not even the biggest thing at this point. At least with Harry Potter, they had a compelling story to work with. 50 Shades is just stupid mom porn, written by an idiot, for idiots. If these people are so desperate to watch BDSM porn, they can save themselves the humiliation of being scene going to this in the theater, and log onto kink.com. The sex will be better, and more plentiful.

And the girls are way bigger freaks than anything Hollywood can come up with. How many Hollywood starlets are willing to take it in the ass while handcuffed on a public bus?

He's the best actor on It's Always Sunny.  The only thing that keeps him from being a really good actor is his voice.

That said, he should be relegated to doing a reading of the book, like Gilbert Gottfried.

I didn't think The DaVinci Code was that bad. Either the book or the movie. Would I read/watch either again? Probably not (okay, maybe the movie) but that doesn't mean I dislike either.

Never been a fan of Hunnan's.  SoA is a cool show, but not because of him.  He just seems out of place playing a badass biker.  I remember the first season when he was trying to walk how he thought some hardcore biker would walk, with exaggerated affectations.. It just looked ridiculous.  He's gotten rid of the funny walk, but he still doesn't sell me on even being a real biker, let alone president of a motorcycle gang.

But, he is more of a B-lister and as a result, more affordable than guys who play a similar role, but cost more.  Guys like Hemsworth, Channing Tatum, Chris Pine, or Bradly Cooper.  OTOH, the target audience of this movie probably doesn't watch SoA and couldn't give a crap if he is believable as a biker.

There were only a couple of under 40 actors/characters on that show that didn't suck shiat through a straw, and the show's writers killed them off. Opie was the only believable biker under 40, both the character, and the actor playing him. Juice, while a well done character played by a capable actor, really doesn't seem like he'd be in a biker gang. The best thing they could do with Jax is load him up with LSD and opiates, put him on a turbo'd Busa.

The show's believability completely lost me when Jax was chasing Opie, and couldn't catch Opie's Harley while riding a Ducati, despite having several minutes to make up the distance. There's just no way that happens, I've seen scooters smoke those things.

Pumpernickel bread: Never been a fan of Hunnan's.  SoA is a cool show, but not because of him.  He just seems out of place playing a badass biker.  I remember the first season when he was trying to walk how he thought some hardcore biker would walk, with exaggerated affectations.. It just looked ridiculous.  He's gotten rid of the funny walk, but he still doesn't sell me on even being a real biker, let alone president of a motorcycle gang.

But, he is more of a B-lister and as a result, more affordable than guys who play a similar role, but cost more.  Guys like Hemsworth, Channing Tatum, Chris Pine, or Bradly Cooper.  OTOH, the target audience of this movie probably doesn't watch SoA and couldn't give a crap if he is believable as a biker.


Those guys can all get gigs that won't make them an utter laughing stock. The movie won't even be out before 2015, and that's if it's unlucky enough to actually get made and released. The books are little more than a fad, the fans of the books will find some other trashy mom porn to flick the bean to, after finding that being choked and spanked just doesn't make their nono place tingle the way the book told them it would.

Have you seen "Pacific Rim" yet?  Because if you did, I'd like to know what was going through your mind when they were on screen together

Yeah, the baby eventually murdered him and now runs the club.

Dwight_Yeast: Snapper Carr: Explain that pornography is cheap (as in free) and plentiful on the internet. You don't have to wrap a bad story around attractive people having sex.

If more people who did porn looked and acted like Charlie Hunnam, we as a society would have a completely different view of pornography.

/Based on the sex scenes he's done, I get the impression the man's a wild animal in the sack.


This is the explanation I've been looking for, in part. I'd chance to say that if men in porn looked like Charlie Hunnam instead of my creepy lawn guy, more women would dig porn over this kind of this kind of malarkey. Beautiful women are abundant in porn. Men, not so much.

Thor was an Avenger, right? Didn't see the movie but read enough about it. Still could never tell you the actors name though. Sorry.

I'm guessing that he meant Jax has always felt "out of place" in the club, at least with what it's become vs. what Jax wants it to be.

Opie was the main reason I watched the show. Now I'm sort of meh about it. Maybe I'll watch it, maybe I won't, but it's no longer a "must watch" for me.

He's not a great actor, but he has gotten better as Sons of Anarchy has gone on. I was surprised they built a show around him during the first couple of seasons (since Ron Perlman and Katey Sagel pretty much steal the show), but by the fourth of fifth season, the only really objectionable thing about his acting was his accent.

Not that Fifty Shades of Grey is going to require a lot of acting. It's going to be skirting the line between romantic drama and softcore porn. Who knows? Maybe it'll change the standards for R-rated films a bit.

/Maggie Siff (Tara) is still pretty awful, though.

Jax didn't chose to be in a biker gang; he was born into it, and likely would have left if it weren't for his mother, he probably would have left.  And as the infamous manuscript shows, his father wasn't really suited to the biker gang lifestyle, especially as the club changed.  So Jax isn't supposed to be a badass biker; he's a guy trying to fit into the world he was born into.

Ishkur: Why do women love books so much where the female protagonist is awkward and insecure and stuck in an abusive relationship?


Because at the end of the book, she has used her magic vagina to turn the tables on the man and now controls him completely.

It is a common female fantasy.

You're thinking of Travis Fimmel. Though similar looking I find Fimmel a much better actor.

I only really know of Travis Fimmel from The Beast, where he made funny faces (some of which IMFDB.org was happy to catch while doing their thing) and was an insufferable little shiat.

Then there was this one movie, whose name I can't remember, that aired on FEARNET, where he was in it and speaking without trying to fake an accent...and Jesus Christ, he was worse there.

Travis Fimmel?  The Calvin Klein model?  Really?  The last I knew he was Tarzan on a  TV show that barely lasted a season.

/Once saw Rufus Wainwright refer to him on stage as "that Calvin Klein model with the huge cock!"

He was a model?

*googles*

Yep.

Let's be clear. Swayze was about the only good thing on that show. Whether it's because it was him or it was his last at-bat before cancer took him, the fact of the matter is not even he could save it. I stopped watching right around episode 3 and then A&E canceled it when he died.

I've heard good things about Vikings, or at least I have since I first heard about it a couple days ago.  I had no idea he still had a career until this thread.  It makes a certain amount of sense.

Vikings' first season was good and I'll watch the second.  There were moments where things felt kind of anti-climatic, like you could tell something involving studio money sped up the conclusion of the conflict between Ragnar and the Yarl.

Considering the fact that the Batman franchise is being reimagined just a couple of years after the last sequel ended, I figure a remake of a French movie from the 1970s probably won't disturb American sensibilities too much.
