Black Mass Passes

Black Mass

While his brother Bill (Benedict Cumberbatch) remains a powerful leader in the Massachusetts Senate, Irish hoodlum James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp) continues to pursue a life of crime in 1970s Boston. Approached by FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton), the lawman convinces Whitey to help the agency fight the Italian mob. As their unholy alliance spirals out of control, Bulger increases his power and evades capture to become one of the most dangerous gangsters in U.S. history.

The Black Mass screening will be held this Monday, September 14 at AMC Waterfront 22, beginning at 7:30 PM.  Please comment below with your favorite Johnny Depp moment.  The only Johnny Depp moment I can concretely remember is his role in Edward Scissorhands (1990).  To me, he was creepy, but cool.

Fifty Shades of Grey

The number one movie in America is none other than the sexual escapades of Christian Grey in, Fifty Shades of Grey.  The movie’s debut was monumental as it doubled its budget this Valentine’s Day weekend, earning an estimated $85 million.

E.L James’ best selling novel proactively comes to life in the movie’s adaption.  Dakota Johnson and Jaime Dornan star as the world’s hottest fictional couple, Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.  Life gets a little complicated when Anastasia has to decide if she’s willing to submit.

Starring as Mr. Grey, Dornan is immensely “dominant” the entire film.  Even with early talks of other candidates to portray Christian Grey, Dornan has proven to be fully enamored into the character who is adored by many.

Fifty Shades of Grey is the first of a movie trilogy and it is important for Dornan to hit the ground running. Even with one little mistake, book nerds all over the world would have dissected the credibility of the movie.  But, he effortlessly keeps his end of the bargain.

The movie was intense- no, like intense, intense.  And you know it is serious when someone says the word twice.

This is definitely not a movie for the sexually awkward. The movie’s overall idea circled around submission– about who or what you are willing to submit to.  In a sexual relationship, I personally coined white women as the submissive stereotype, because in reality, it is a trait that can overpower all women.

A few times during the movie, I was thinking to myself, “I wish he would”– simply refusing to perform some of the items requested.  But, with more thought, I can recalls times when I submitted to some non-sexual acts far worse.

And after awhile, submission slowly becomes the standard.

Like Christian Grey, men are widely praised as the protectors, bread winners, and patriarch.  While women are often times considered the inferior species.   But, there’s a thin line between submission and comprise in relation to gender specific roles.  Healthy submission comes with non-physical perks. It’s called compromise.

Who are you willing to submit to?

4 Stars: With no reading prerequisites, Fifty Shades of Grey is thoroughly enjoyable!

Movie Scene Queen is hosting a special screening of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY on Wednesday, February 11th at 7:30 on the Waterfront.  Please comment below with your best or worst Valentine’s Day story.  I’ll keep mine brief– But last year I ended up stuck in Atlanta for their “snow” storm.  My family and loved ones were out and about in Pittsburgh, while I watched Atlanta literally shut down the city for like 2 inches of snow.  UGH!

Fifty Shades of Grey is the hotly anticipated film adaptation of the bestselling book that has become a global phenomenon. Since its release, the “Fifty Shades” trilogy has been translated into 51 languages worldwide and sold more than 100 million copies in e-book and print—making it one of the biggest and fastest-selling book series ever.  Stepping into the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, who have become iconic to millions of readers, are Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
