There is quite a lot of hype building towards the movie release of Fifty Shades of Grey, and I noticed (almost got drowned in) it on my Twitter newsfeed this morning, till I remembered I have ‘Lists’ I can use.
What a relief!
I don’t have anything against the upcoming movie, (which like Twilight, I think might be way better than the books,) but the flooding two second Gifs of Christian Grey unbuttoning his jeans accompanied by squeals from his female fan base dying to catch a glimpse of some Grey crown jewels got a little nauseating. There were also gushing tweets, and I had to read a ton of bullshit about how this is the bestest love story ever, by females doing a poor job of trying to hide it’s actually the BDSM sex scenes they can’t wait to watch.
It sort of ruined my peaceful morning, and ruined mornings make me pissy. I complained and ranted to a friend, who listened for a full minute before he gleefully reminded me that not long ago I made a blog promise to watch the movie and review it.
I ran over to the blog and hunted through my older posts, and right enough… There it was!
In the post, I actually typed out these words…
Will I watch the movie?
Will I write a review?
Just try and stop me.
So, after taking a few deep breaths, I turned to the huz in the hopes of seeking sympathy and company…
Me: Remember when the Fifty Shades trailer came out, and I blogged about how I’d watch and review it? What was I thinking?
Huz: Moments of insanity also happen to you.
Me: So, now I’ll have to watch it.
Huz: I guess.
Me: *sigh* Will you watch it with me?
Me: What? You have to watch it with me.
Huz: Dakota Fanning?
Me: Johnson. Wanna watch?
Huz: Hmmm… No. I can’t watch a movie where an asshole like Christian Steele is considered a romantic hero.
Me: Christian Grey, not Steele!
Huz: Why did I say ‘Steele?’
Me: Anastasia Steele.
Huz: Right. But, no.
Me: But, why?
Huz: You want me to watch a ‘BooHoo-my-mommy-issues-make-me-a-sadistic-fuck-and-I-treat-women-like-shit asshole for 90 minutes?
Huz: I’d rather watch a Star Plus drama serial from start to finish.
Me: So, I’m going to watch this all by myself?
Huz: You have a promise to keep to all your readers
Huz: Good luck.
Damn you Twitter newsfeed!
