    The 5 Best and Worst Movies of 2015
    Worst of 2015
    1. Fifty Shades of Grey
    Source: Universal Pictures
    This train wreck of a movie was one of the most anticipated films of the year, as the erotic novels have famously sold bazillions of copies and ignited tons of controversy about whether or not the central relationship portrayed in them is a horribly misogynistic vision of a woman being abused and brainwashed by a powerful man or a sex-positive look at BDSM. Tons of women in particular read the books and much was made about whether the BDSM practices described within were becoming mainstream. Anyway, everyone knew about Fifty Shades by the time this movie was released, and many were expecting something that at the very least was going to be sexy. Wrong.

    ((((50 shades was a joke LOL it was horrible ))) ..

    Suooo says the movie was so bad and disgusting that she almost left the theater.
    Seriously, happy for the actor but do wish this Fifty Shades crappolla would go away.
    I hate that the good books and good writers are being ignored while the writer of this book, a woman who doesn’t even understand sentence variation, makes millions upon millions.
    I also understand folks like erotic fiction. But you do not have to prostitute your good taste in order to be turned on by prose. You can read DH Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover or Henry Miller’s The Tropic of Cancer or anything by Anais Nin.
