~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~ Viewed 2/9/18 at Tinseltown with Movie Pass ~

The Saga continues to the final chapter after Anastasia and Christian Grey return home to Seattle after a amazing honeymoon in Europe. Christian gets a bit over-protective and demanding of his new wife, in part to protect her against Hyde who seeks vengeance upon them both. Gifting her a life of leisure and her own publishing company, the two newly weds start settling in with a lavish life together with a very intimate and erotic zeal in life together. Things go down under quickly as the madman Hyde seeks to destroy them, eventually turning to criminal motives that endanger them and their relationship. It becomes a battle of committment vs. freedom, control vs. safety, as the Red Room is used in push-n-pull marital dynamics of individuality and the bonds of marriage. Questions of commitment vs. adultery, bondage and BDSM will make the mystery deeper as it extends to their friends as well. A pregnancy is thrown into the mix as emotions blow up intermingled with threats of murder, kidnapping, and violence. The plot toils and tumbles with high action, car chases, deceipt, sex, eroticism, and conundrums. Very well done and captivating throughout the entire screenplay. Rated: 5 stars out of 5.

5 year Engagement

Five Year Engagement (2012: R)

Director: Nicholas Stoller; Writers: Jason Segel (screenplay), Nicholas Stoller (screenplay); Starring: Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Chris Pratt, and many more.

A typical chick-flick as my partner categorizes it, but fun for men and women alike in my opinion. It takes place with two soul mates finding one another at a party, and then Tom and Violet become engaged. Just like his proposal failing to fall into place, so does their engagement which keeps getting extended and delayed, passing through family members dying off, having his best friend beat them to the altar as well as to having kids, and losing vision as to what they want out of life. Everything was going well for them in San Francisco until Violet gets a rejection from her dream school and falls on the backup plan with the University of Michigan. This however means that Tom has to give up his very desired chef job in a San Francisco top restaurant. Figuring he could find a similar job in Michigan it backfires when nothing avails and everything is working for Violet and he seemingly feels like a loser. It gets to him and his health, happiness, and upkeep decays further and further while Violet exceeds beyond her wildest dreams. They fail to find a balance. Her professor makes a pass at her while she’s down about her fiance … and when Tom finds out, all hell breaks lose. They eventually split up only to constantly wish to be in each other’s arms. Whims of fate bring them back together for a hilarious multi-cultural wedding of much diversity with a Happily ever after 5 years down the road. Thought the movie was witty, fun, edge of your seat good times that matches with many relationship dilemmas in this day and age. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
