We'll, here she comes! The day of cinematic reckoning has arrived and every sensory woman on the planet is just plain thrilled but probably won't admit it.
Anyway, that's another story altogether, this is about the movie, Fifty Shades of Grey, which I hear is sort of crappy, but I digress.
An American phenomena born not long ago is hype and La Fifty is full of hype, excess baggage, or whips and chains in this case.
You've already seen it on Twitter and Facebook, the usual suspects. YouTube didn't want to be left out either and you're going to get a healthy dose of Fifty hype-manifesto on Friday and Saturday, (which appropriately enough is Valentine's Day--hey kids, stay away from the multiplexes!)
A lull in the otherwise dull 11 PM News: TV crews outside the theatre, reporter with microphone to 30-something Daphne in Walnut Creek: Reporter: "Tell me, you saw the film, what did you think of it?" --Daphne: "Amazing, totally amazing, frankly, I'm a bit surprised, --I mean, the whole whips thing was kind of weird, but really, it was amazing!"
I think good microwave pizza is amazing. I wish I could swing a date with her--that would be really amazing! This other stuff? Not so much. But hey, it's Friday night. And we all know about slow news days and nights and so even if a lot of us don't really give a shit about the movie, we will no matter what because, after all, that's life.
Whip it! Whip it good!
