Despite being quite a bit tamer than the book, FIFTY SHADES OF GREY was everything it should be: entertaining, empowering (yes, Ana knows what she’s doing and takes control of the situation when she needs to), and most importantly, HOT. Fans of the book will certainly be satiated. However, with an “R rating”, and public fervor surrounding the story’s sexier bits, it’s surprising that director Sam Taylor-Johnson didn’t go even further with the sex scenes. There were a few times when I thought, “I’ve seen more graphic scenes on GAME OF THRONES”. But don’t worry, this film is still really steamy.
Of course there were some eye-roll worthy moments… especially in the dialogue, but I am happy to report that the movie was even better than I expected. Dakota Johnson is phenomenal as Anastasia Steele. This is her film and most assuredly a break-out role. And of course, Jamie Dornan was sexy as hell as Christian Grey. Although sometimes his American accent was a bit distracting, so was his six pack, let’s be real.
But enough about my review, let’s talk about the 14 sexiest moments from FIFTY SHADES OF GREY.
1) When Christian finds Ana in the hardware store and asks her to help him find some… interesting items (tape, cable ties, and rope… oh my!)
2) Ana and Christian’s first kiss in the elevator because “f*ck the contract”.
3) Of course, the first time they have sex, which is her first time ever!
4) Whenever there were cuts to one of Christian’s fancy ties being used like this:
5) When Ana and Christian dance together to Frank Sinatra’s “Witchcraft“.
And because I can’t help myself…
6) That super hot piano scene. :fans self:
7) When Christian has to carry Ana back to her room after a particularly intense :ahem: encounter.
8) When Christian transfers the wine from his glass into Ana’s mouth using HIS mouth (and has fun with ice).
9) When Ana and Christian take a random walk in the forest and kiss, because hey why not?!
10) Whenever Christian gets over himself and his problems and sleeps in the bed with Ana.
11) When Ana and Christian discuss the “terms” of their contract. Ana showed she wasn’t so submissive.
12) Christian showing up in Savannah, GA because he can’t be without Ana for long AND he takes her up in a glider.
13) When Anna has her first intense bondage experience in the Playroom. Remember, “yellow” and “red” bb!
14) Basically, just whenever Ana and Christian are together, it’s too much to handle. Thankfully both sequels have already been green-lit, so we will be getting a lot more of this:
