So it is all over — the Fifty Shades trilogy that tried to be more than just kinky unspoken sex and about two seemingly wildly incompatible characters getting together and sustaining a relationship. But the surprising thing about it is that despite how terrible the first feature, Fifty Shades Of Grey, was, the following installments were actually pretty tolerable to the point of enjoyment. Yes, the entire trilogy as a whole is pretty bad, and the lack of chemistry between leads Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan is clear, but by the time we get from Fifty Shades Darker to Fifty Shades Freed, we see that the franchise has embraced its absurdity.

The result is that we can enjoy the film for what it is. Regardless of how one may feel about the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed is just one of those films that is so bad it’s actually pretty good. And owning up to the fact that it can be mildly enjoyable is hard to admit. My full review below.

‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Trailer: Car Chases, Bondage, and Happy Endings, Oh My!
  |  @   |  

I’m not entirely sure if the Fifty Shades franchise still has that tight grip it once had when it was at its pop culture peak, but at least its film franchise intends to see the trilogy all the way to the end. Despite being knocked for its poor writing and lack of chemistry between the two leads, the series’ success – if you can call it that – has led up to the final installment of the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed.

And now with just a couple of months left until the film’s traditional Valentine’s Day release, Universal is releasing yet another trailer to remind you that this sex-filled soap opera drama is coming. Check out the latest trailer below.

Fifty Shades Darker
Director: James Foley
Screenwriter: Niall Leonard
Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Kim Basinger, Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 158 minutes
Release Date: February 10, 2017

When trying to figure out the rationale of the characters in Fifty Shades Darker, it’s best to remember that these people are based on less than stellar source material. Yes, the Fifty Shades film franchise continues on with Fifty Shades Darker, and despite the fact that it is supposed to be based on the best of the three popular books, the film fails to learn from its mistakes. Instead, it’s an unintentionally funny filler that goes nowhere fast and crashes and burns upon impact. Despite that rousing criticism, one can’t help but watch how much worse this can get. My full review below.

‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Trailer: Are You Hungry For Some Provocative Public Displays Of Affection
  |  @   |  

Universal Pictures has released the second official trailer to Fifty Shades Darker starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The film is a sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, which ended awkwardly, I might add. However, devoted fans knew that the story wasn’t over, with this being a trilogy.

In the new trailer for the sequel, we see the two rekindle that relationship that involves kinky PDA, ghosts from Christian’s past, and other people who will complicate their relationship. Because what’s a good soapy drama without that. Check out the full trailer below.

A couple of years back Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures announced an August 2016 release date for a movie titled Spectral, which was set to be helmed by commercials director Nic Mathieu. The movie is a military thriller about a special-ops team sent in to deal with a supernatural force wreaking havoc on a European city.

Spectral ended up being pulled from the originally scheduled release, however, and distribution was eventually acquired by Netflix. A new trailer for the movie has been released online ahead of its release in a couple of days on the streaming service, and you can check it out below.
