    If that's not love, we don't know what is!

  8. Fifty Shades of Grey‘s Female Director May Leave Franchise, Universal Not Promising Any Sequels

    My tastes are very...singular. As in one. As in just the lone film, please, thank-you.

    Take all of this with a male-ego-sized grain of salt, but according to new reports those Fifty Shades of Grey sequels may be less officially-official than we originally thought--and if the series does return to spread its vile seed in theaters again, it may come with a new director.

  9. Fifty Shades Of Grey Broke Box Office Records, Is Biggest Opening Weekend for Female Director

    It also broke most of our faith in humanity, sadly.

    Let's play a fun numbers game! Fifty Shades of Grey made $81.7 million on its opening weekend, which according to a 2010 census is almost the exact population of Germany. You could buy a Kinder chocolate bar for every single person living in Germany and probably still have a bunch left over. In fact, we should just do that.

  10. I Dated Christian Grey: How Women Are Groomed For Abuse

    Fifty Shades of Nah.

    I met him my sophomore year in college. Tall, dark, handsome, popular, talented, articulate, and immensely charming, I formed a crush on him almost instantly. But, I knew to my marrow that someone like me could never be with someone like him. I didn’t move in his celestial spheres; I wasn’t worthy of his time or attention. I knew myself to be beneath him.

  11. We Need To Talk About The Recent Exploitation Of Female Submission In Film

  12. Review: I Sat Through Fifty Shades of Grey, And Now I Thirst for Male Tears

    Although I'd like to think that everyone viewing or reading Fifty Shades of Grey does so with critical distance, that seems awfully optimistic when I remember how 19-year-old Carolyn didn't think twice about Christian Grey's patently abusive behavior, or when I consider how the little-Twilight-fanfic-that-could has created an unhealthy and inaccurate popular perception of kink.

  13. This Fifty Shades of Buscemi Mashup Is Restoring Some of My Faith in Humanity

    You bet your keister I'm gonna get a piece of that pie.

    Thoughtful critical analysis of Fifty Shades' problematic aspects can only accomplish so much—at a certain point, the only way to effectively highlight the preposterousness of the movie's central relationship might be Steve Buscemi in an aviator hat.

  14. Power-Playing: Advice To NSFW Fic Writers And Novelists Now That Fifty Shades of Grey Is A Movie

    Yes, I'm looking at you writing that NC-17 dub-con.

    It is 2011, and I am at a literary award after party. There is no statue in my hand, but there is a vodka martini. I think it was number three. Maybe four? And the title of the book on everyone’s lips that night was not the one that had taken home the top prize two hours earlier; it was “that new mommy porn book.”

  15. Not a Drill: Somebody’s Making Fifty Shades of M.O.D.O.K.

    Now here's a Valentine's Weekend movie I'd watch.

    This is M.O.D.O.K., the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. This is a quote from 50 Shades of MODOK, a blog that's rewriting 50 Shades of Grey with M.O.D.O.K. instead of Christian Grey:

    Someone's going to get a spanking for this.

    Jill would like you all to know that when she first saw this tweet, she thought Domino's was doubling down and making a badly worded joke about dom-style punishment. Turns out, that's not really their thing after all!

  19. 50 Shades Won’t Include The Infamous Tampon Scene, So Here, Have This Fan Re-Creation

    Holy f***. Sweet mother of all... Jeez.

    Here's the thing about 50 Shades of Grey. If you're going to make the horrible source material into a film, you might as well go all the way, right? Sadly, the filmmakers have decided to omit a crucial scene from the film - the tampon scene. One fan won't let that stand, however, and has seen fit to create the scene in all its CG glory.
