#TBT – 50 Shades Of Grey
You are probably wondering how and why 50 Shades of Grey warrants a #TBT and a #THROWBACK tag.
Well my friend, because after watching the long awaited erotic normcore, I was horrified to witness several (not so cool) nods to the 90’s.
The first and foremost 90’s reference was Anastasia’s pubic hair.
Apologies for the audacious introduction, however it must be acknowledged that in 2011 when the film is set, to sport a comprehensive lady garden is somewhat of a bold move.
In the circles of the well groomed and prevalent members of society, she has what many like to call – a full bush.
The utter dismay I felt when she later pulled out a flip phone was unprecedented – she is dating a billionaire for goodness sake!
With the addition of a Gillette Mach 3 Turbo and some sexy technology, this film would score some major hot points.
However without neither, you can’t help but leave the cinema feeling a tad disaffected.
