What's the big deal with 50 shades of grey, the movie and book?
« on: February 22, 2015, 03:32:38 PM »
I have nothing against a movie that has sex in it. I like the first Porky's movie, for example, but from what I've heard of 50 shades, it doesn't sound like a movie that would make hundreds of millions of dollars. It sounds like the American Pie movies with rich people instead of barely twenty something kids.

-PC: AMD Quad Core A8-3800 Accelerated Processor, 16GB DDR3 Ram, Radeon HD45xx 1 GB video card, 1 TB hard drive, 500 GB hard drive, Supermulti DVD Burner, Wireless Lan 802.11 b/g/n, Beats audio Studio Quality sound, Win 7 Home Premium

-Dreams of getting a new Wii U in 201x.
-Current consoles:Wii, PS2, XBOX 360, also has DS/GBA, Vita 2xxx, and a PSP 3000

Yes, I like buying games cheap, don't like it? Deal with it!

I think it's a product of hype marketing. I mean, there are lots of other books and lots of other films that probably do a better job with that sort of material, but this one caught fire and was a monster in social media. It happens to good stuff, it happens to crappy stuff. This one got luck, I feel.
