So, the new 50 Shades film

If you want to watch a movie about a billionaire playboy with a penchant for darkness, inflicting violence and dressing up in masks, you’re far better off seeing The Lego Batman Movie.”

  1. I don’t think anyone here is the target audience for this film. Not since our Kentish terrorist-immigration-loving White-people-hating banker left us. Maybe Julia?

    For the rest of us, well, I liked the first Lego movie. If this one has a song that is as good or a love story that is as funny, it would be worth seeing.

  2. Who was that? PaulB?

    I’d bother to watch soft porn only if I fancied the gal. And I don’t fancy Dakota Johnson.

  3. Bloke in Wales – “I was assuming he meant Mrs Coppola”

    But PaulB works too.

    Is anyone but 40-ish women interested in 50 Shades? Anyone here actually read it?

  4. Mrs BiND was going to read it until a friend said don’t bother – the story line’s crap and the writing awful. Somewhat missing the point, methinks. Not that I’ve read it.

  5. Saw Lego Batman last weekend. Quite a lot of fun. If you’ve got kids into Lego, they’ll love it. I quite liked it for just bringing the stupid back to Batman.

    I really don’t care much for the Nolan movies, because I don’t buy into the premise of Batman and all those characters in the real world. Like, who’s going to work for the Joker? The guy’s crazy, doesn’t make any money. What’s their incentive? At least with the Burton movies and Adam West TV, you knew it was comic book.

    Totally agree about superheroes in the real world. How does Superman have time for a job? Why isn’t he out saving people from ISIS? Where was he on 9/11 etc.

    I did think Jamie Dornan was good in The Fall, though.

  7. Roue,

    And that’s why I like the old Donner Superman films. They were campy and silly. They were for kids. Kids think about people stopping burglars or rescuing cats from trees.

    If you’re going to go all “serious Superman”, as you say, why is he a journalist? Best thing he could be doing is building bridges or boring tunnels. He’d have the major parts of a suspension bridge put together in a few hours. Or how about sorting out a few poor countries? Installing sewerage systems and cell towers in India and Africa. Using his laser eyes to create smooth roads. Or maybe just offering to airlift people out of Cuba. What’s Castro going to do? Shoot him? Good luck with that.

  8. Reading Justine and Julliette many years ago put me off S&M for life.

    De Sade seemed more interested in raping, torturing and killing people and he didn’t have a lot of time for safe words.

  9. Surreptitious Evil,

    I’ve read them (I’ll read more or less anything), Mrs BiNDs mate was right ‘the story line’s crap and the writing awful’, makes Mills & Boon authors look like Nobel Prize nominees.

  10. Kevin B,

    Yes. De Sade may be the S in BDSM, but he was mad, not just a bloke into getting tied up in bed.

    I recommend the movie Secretary.

    “…because I don’t buy into the premise of Batman and all those characters in the real world.”

    Haven’t you ever met Batman before? Regular guy, used to work the 7/11 on Lordship Lane.

    “I don’t think anyone here is the target audience for this film.”

    JuliaM

    “Definitely not me!”

    She says, stuffing popcorn up her arse.

  13. Surreptitious Evil – “Would anybody here admit it, here, if they had?”

    Admit it to a bunch of anonymous people on the internet? I don’t see why not. Why wouldn’t someone? If the internet is not for burdening other people with our psychology problems, what is it for?

    Kevin B – “De Sade seemed more interested in raping, torturing and killing people and he didn’t have a lot of time for safe words.”

    De Sade is an interesting example of the long-running moral bankruptcy of the Left. De Sade hated the Church – and so for the Left he must be a good person. Even though he wrote about – and may have carried out – torturing, raping and murdering young children. He seems to have inspired people ever since. What these days the perpetually outraged call Rape Culture.

    Yet Simone de Beauvior can justify his work.

  14. Mother – “She says, stuffing popcorn up her arse.”

    I am not down with da yoof and their colourful language so I may be misunderstanding your meaning here, but if she was into 50SG, wouldn’t she need someone else to stuff popcorn while she was blind folded, tied down and gagged?

    At least that is what I remember from my honeymoon but it was a long time ago.
