The most popular points of conversation on campus right now are: upcoming midterm exams, the snow tundra we once knew as Boston, and 50 Shades of Grey hitting the cinema over Valentine’s Day Weekend. Whether you’re a fan of the books or have never heard of Christian Grey in your life, here are my 3 reasons why you should see “50 Shades of Grey” right now.
1) Company – You’re not going to want to see this when it comes out on OnDemand this summer, with your Mom casually sitting next to you. This is the type of movie friends should go with friends to. Trust me, you’ll want to know the people next to you when Christian takes off his shirt and eats toast out of Anastasia’s hand in one shot. You’ll probably also want to discuss the film after seeing it and again, not something you want to do with your mom.
2) Spoilers – This is one of the most talked about movies. Ever. If you want to see it eventually, you may as well not wait. Everyone is seeing it – or knows someone who has seen it – and wants to share their opinion one way or another. Take things into your own hands and see the film before your roommates has a chance to say “well it wasn’t as good at the book” or worse, your neighbor say “you’re not going to like the abrupt ending.” Don’t anyone spoil it for you!
3) Weather – Because what else is there to do besides watch movies in snowy weather like this? I know you’ve probably become quite comfortable in your bedroom (read cocoon) after the 5 snow days we’ve had but its time to break through that hibernation and get outside. Walk over to Regal Fenway Cinema’s, indulge in your favorite candy and blue raspberry slushy, and enjoy a movie that I promise you won’t forget.
