Fifty Shades Of Grey (Five Shades of Porn)
Fifty Shades Of Grey
Just saw this movie – supposed to be some kind of milestone in women’s erotica.
The Fifty Shades trilogy is a series of erotic romance novels by E. L. James. The trilogy consists of Fifty Shades of Grey(2011), Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed (2012). The trilogy traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey.
In March 2012, branches of the public library in Brevard County, Florida, removed copies of Fifty Shades of Grey from their shelves, with an official stating that it did not meet the selection criteria for the library and that reviews for the book had been poor. A representative for the library stated that it was due to the book’s sexual content and that other libraries had declined to purchase copies for their branches. Brevard County public libraries later made their copies available to their patrons due to public demand.
In Macaé, Brazil, Judge Raphael Queiroz Campos ruled in January 2013 that bookstores throughout the city must either remove the series entirely from their shelves or ensure that the books are wrapped and placed out of the reach of minors. The judge stated that he was prompted to make such an order after seeing children reading them, basing his decision on a law stating that “magazines and publications whose content is improper or inadequate for children and adolescents can only be sold if sealed and with warnings regarding their content”.
Like some movies have that Oscar buzz about them, this one has a definite Razzie buzz about it. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 42% approval rating only, which is low.
